Moles, Skin Tags, Cholesterol Spots and Warts
Moles – are growths on the skin. Moles are made up of a clustering of melanin in the skin – stemming from melanocytes – which can be found commonly on the skin. Moles are usually pink, tan or brown. They can be flat or raised and are usually round or oval and no larger than a pencil eraser.
Ultra Pulse CO2 laser is the ideal modern treatment for mole removal – A quick, effective and relatively painless treatment( Anaesthetic is available) leaves minimal to no scarring ,no stitches are required therefore there’s a quick recovery time. The entire head and root of the growth is removed therefore the mole cannot regrow again.
A light scab is left after the treatment which flakes off over the next 3- 6 days( depending on size of mole). A sunblock with a high SPF should be applied to the area everyday thereafter until natural skin colour develops.

Plantar Warts – Plantar warts are benign (noncancerous) growths that occur on the sole (plantar surface), heel, or ball of the foot – the wart is made up of a thick fibrous tissue forming a dense mass under the particular area of the foot. Pressure from standing and walking often causes them to grow into deep layers of the skin which pushes on the soft surrounding tissues of the foot causing considerable pain and discomfort. All common warts – removed in the same manner as plantar warts.
Popular treatments like shaving / or cutting out the plantar warts or applying products to soften the wart only treats the symptoms but does not completely remove the wart – in most instances the root of the wart stays in tact and grows again. Ultra Pulse CO2 laser is the most effective treatment as it removes both the head and the root of the plantar wart completely – never to grow again.
Due to the sensitive nature of the area anaesthetic is injected into the area which completely numbs the area so a quick and proper removal of the wart is accomplished.
