Moles are a common occurrence on the skin whilst they are often harmless, many opt to have them removed.
Results vary dependent on client, whilst some clients will have a Mole removed in one session others may require multiple treatments.
Moles are usually brown or black in colour and they occur as an overgrowth of Pigment Cells (Melanocytes) within the deeper layers of the skin. Moles usually appear during childhood, with more developing moving into teenage years, although they can continue to develop with age. Moles tend to develop as a result of sun exposure though they can appear spontaneously anywhere on the body.
At Aesthetics of Liverpool we offer Short Wave Diathermy to remove Moles. You must bring along a letter of consent from your GP to your initial consultation stating that the Mole is safe to remove.
Short Wave Diathermy
Diathermy treatment involves the use of a fine tip needle. When the needle is applied to the Mole it will deliver Radio Energy to destroy the Mole’s tissue and cauterise Blood Vessels to prevent excess bleeding. The procedure will leave behind a small wound which is then covered using a plaster.

Whilst Moles are usually harmless, It is very important to ensure you check the Moles on your body for any unusual changes a helpful way to remember what to look out for is the ABCDE method:
• A- Asymmetry
• B- Border Irregularity
• C- Colour Change
• D- Diameter
• E- Elevated (raised) or enlarged.
If you notice any of these changes to a Mole/Moles on your body it is important to visit your GP as changes to a Mole may be an indication of a skin cancer called Melanoma.
