Skin Tag & Mole Removal
A common occurrence among the adult population, skin tags & moles are generally harmless, but can be removed for various reasons.
Why remove a skin tag / mole?
While skin tags are benign and harmless skin growths, they can cause irritation (against clothing and objects) and be a cosmetic nuisance.
Similar to tags, removing a mole has emotional benefits if they make you feel self-conscious.
Some moles can also be a sign of health problems, and your Consultant may recommend they be removed for ‘peace of mind’ and to reduce the risk of future health problems.
How are they removed?
Our practice uses a Hyfrecator, a low powered device that can destroy many forms of skin blemishes. This is a safe, effective and minimally invasive method that has been used across the globe.

Commonly Asked Questions
The affected area of skin will be numbed with a local anaesthetic before the doctor starts the removal procedure. This will minimise pain and discomfort.
As with most procedures, there are side effects, and Dr Musa will discuss these with you.
Infection at the site area may occur. To avoid this, please follow the doctor’s instructions on aftercare.
You won’t need to take time off work and you should be able to return to your normal activities straight away.
Depending on the size and location of the lesion, your doctor may recommend that you don’t drive or take part in any physical activity for a while afterwards.
Any stitches will need to be removed at our practice; you’ll be updated about this on the day of your procedure. A follow-up appointment will be provided, if needed, to help with your recovery.
Results will take a couple of days, as the site of removal needs to heal.
The operation will usually leave a scar. How big and noticeable this will be depends on the exact operation. Most scars fade significantly over the first year. We will also give you advice on how to reduce the appearance of your scar, such as gently massaging the site after your stitches have been removed.
