Dr Vinu from Westridge Medical in Toowoomba uses a unique non-invasive radiofrequency device to remove raised lesions on the skin, such as skin tags, raised moles or warty lesions. This advanced radiofrequency device makes fine and precise incisions in the skin, allowing the easy removal of moles with minimal to no scarring.

What is cosmetic mole removal?

Cosmetic Mole Removal is the removal of moles using radiofrequency technology. This technology can be used on all body parts, including the face and will remove moles without a surgical scar.

Cosmetic Mole Removal only requires local anaesthetic and the procedure will not disrupt your daily activities as it requires no scalpels or stitches, providing a smooth final result with minimal after care required.

Cosmetic GP and Founder of Vinesse Aesthetics and Cosmetic Clinic, Dr Vinu Ramnanan can remove your unwanted moles without leaving a scar, call us today to discuss this effective non-evasive removal of cosmetic moles.

What are the risks of cosmetic mole removal?

  • If hyperpigmented cells are present beneath the surface of the skin it is possible that pigmentation in the mole may reoccur. It could take 6-7 weeks for this to appear. Please call your Doctor if this occurs.
  • Bruising may appear, due to the injecting of local anaesthetic and will usually settle within a week.
  • Bleeding can be common after the procedure – this is generally minor and usually only lasts 1-2 days.
  • Infection is uncommon, but if you suspect an infection, please contact us immediately.
  • Scarring varies based on the mole type, skin colour, previous history of scarring and general health. Please ask your Doctor if you have any concerns.
  • Moles can regrow, but usually this is rare. A follow up treatment can be performed if necessary.

How does Radiofrequency Technology Work?

Cosmetic Mole Removal uses a device which allows currents within the radiofrequency range to pass through a fine wire or ball electrode. This procedure removes raised lesions and moles on the skin by gently shaving away layer by layer from the skin’s surface without the use of a scalpel incision or stitching. Radiofrequency works by cauterising the skin at the same time as the device shaves the mole, thereby eliminating the risk of scaring and bacterial infection.

The procedure starts off with cleaning the area with an antiseptic solution, then numbing the area with local anaesthetic. Each mole takes between 5-10 minutes to remove using the radiofrequency device.

Cosmetic Mole Removal using radiofrequency is a painless procedure and only requires one appointment. Wounds are usually not painful and resemble a graze, which will heal naturally.

Please note that cosmetic mole removal is a private procedure and medicare rebates are not available for this procedure. If Dr Vinu is concerned about the appearance of any mole, she will direct you to an appointment for a skin cancer check and a biopsy if necessary.

Is there downtime after Cosmetic Mole Removal?

A small wound remains on the skin after the mole is removed. There is no down time, you can exercise or go to work, however when you shower, cover the area for the first 5 days. Swimming is not advised for the 3 weeks post treatment.

The area will remain red or pink in colour temporarily for between 3-4 months. The wound is flat and will scab after a week or two. Once the scab falls off it is important to not pick at the site.

Minimise exposure to the sun or UV rays, use 30+ sunscreen to prevent sun damage. One can use healing serum or cream to prevent the area drying out. Face makeup should not be applied to the wound for approximately 2 weeks.
