Effective & Versatile Brown Spot & Mole Removal

The laser destroys the mole tissue by heating it, causing it to break down and be absorbed by the body. This type of mole removal is usually considered to be a cosmetic procedure, but it can also be used for medical purposes, such as to remove moles that are cancerous or precancerous.

Why Lasers Are Used For Laser Mole and Brown Spot Removal?

CO2 lasers are often used to remove moles, including those with brown spots. The laser energy targets the mole tissue and breaks it down, effectively removing the mole. CO2 lasers can be either Erbium or Ultrapulse and are generally considered effective at removing moles with minimal pain and downtime. CO2 lasers are essential in many industries and applications, including medicine. Their versatility and power make them one of the most popular lasers. In medicine, CO2 lasers are used for various procedures, from laser surgery to tattoo removal, and are particularly effective at removing moles with brown spots.

CO2 lasers emit light at a wavelength of 10.6 microns, which is invisible to the human eye. When this light is focused on a tiny spot, it can generate a considerable amount of power that can be used to cut or engrave materials or even to vaporize tissue. CO2 lasers are powered by electricity and typically use a gas mixture of CO2, nitrogen, and helium. The gas is excited by the electric current, which causes it to emit light. This light is passed through a series of mirrors and lenses, focusing it into a tiny beam that can precisely target the mole tissue, including any brown spots.

Virtually Scarless Laser Removal For Spots and Moles

There are many reasons to choose laser-assisted mole removal over other methods, such as traditional surgery, especially if the mole has brown spots. Laser removal is less invasive, resulting in less pain and swelling. It is also a quick and easy procedure that can be completed in just one office visit.

If you are tired of that mole on your face or around your neck but worried about a surgical scar, laser-assisted mole removal can successfully remove unwanted moles with virtually no scar.

A local anesthetic may first be used, and then the Erbium or Ultrapulse CO2 laser vaporizes the unwanted mole, including any brown spots. The treated area is blended into the surrounding skin using laser light.

Depending on the mole's appearance, a sample may be sent out for pathological review. The treated area heals in 7-10 days, with no "track marks" left from stitches, and in most cases, no visual or textural changes are seen.

The other advantages of laser-assisted mole removal for brown spots include the following:

  • It is generally a quick and easy procedure with minimal discomfort
  • It can be performed on an outpatient basis
  • It is considered to be a very effective treatment option for removing moles with brown spots

Suppose you are considering having a laser-assisted mole removal for brown spots. In that case, it is essential to consult with one of our board-certified dermatologists to discuss your specific situation and ensure that this is the best treatment option for you.
