Moles and Skin Tag Removal

Moles generally occur when the skin cells start growing in clusters rather than in layers along the skin's surface. The melanocytes cells which give the skin its natural colour may cause the skin to appear brown or black in this skin disorder. They can appear in any parts of the body, in groups or alone, and may darken if the skin is exposed to direct sun rays. Moles can occur during early childhood, during the teenage period, and even during pregnancy, or may appear on the skin anytime by the time the person turn 30 years. It can be considered normal if approximately 10 to 40 moles appear by the time a child becomes an adult. Over the years moles don't change much, but they may change in colour or start rising along the skin’s surface. In some cases body hair may start growing on the mole. In rare cases moles may even disappear with time.

Advanced CO2 laser treatment offered by Afterglow can go a long way in getting rid of skin tags, milia, warts, moles, DPN's, freckles, and mollescum. The technology consists of using a strong beam of intense laser light which can vaporize the water molecules present in the moles. The heat generated locally within the cluster of mole cells destroys unwanted cells, and in addition increase the production of collagen fibre which can further help in repairing the skin surface. One of the biggest advantage of using Carbon Dioxide laser over traditional mole removal surgery is that it does scars the skin negligibly and does not leave any traces behind. The skin appear almost normal after the treatment. We make use of the most popular and advanced CO2 laser technologies to treat moles - including fractional laser CO2 for removal of stretch marks and melasma (NEW).
