Moles before and after procedure

Important Information

Healing takes place over 1-2 weeks with a layer of healthy new skin forming.

The advantages are very little or no scarring, no need for surgical excision with stitches and a procedure that usually only takes a few minutes.

However, it is imperative that cancerous lesions are not misdiagnosed as benign dermal naevi and shaved off inappropriately.

In this regard Dr John Stretch is an Accredited Skin Cancer Doctor with the Skin Cancer College of Australasia and he performs all cosmetic mole removals personally. He has a Masters of Medicine (Skin Cancer) from the University of Queensland has also been awarded the International Dermoscopy Diploma (with distinction) from the University of Graz in Austria. This latter year long training course deals specifically with the hand held surface microscopic examination and interpretation of both pigmented and non-pigmented skin lesions. In addition, samples of all lesions are submitted for pathological analysis to confirm their benign nature.
