The majority of lesions (such as moles and skin tags) are benign lesions and can be removed safely for aesthetic reasons.
At Brisbane Skin, we have a range of different techniques for mole removal, including surgical and laser options.
But most importantly, we can provide the expertise to check your mole prior to removing to make sure that it is nothing suspicious. If there is anything out of the ordinary, we an also provide biopsy at the time of your appointment, and excision if required. The last thing you want is to superficially remove a melanoma and not realise it!!

- Surgical Excision

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the biggest risk associated with having my mole removed?
The main concerns is making sure that you do not remove a cancerous or pre-cancerous lesion without realising it. That is why it is very important to only have moles removed that you are certain are benign. At Brisbane Skin we will always check your mole and will always biopsy and excise your lesion if required. It is very important to see a specialist before removing a mole.
How many treatments will I need?
The majority of moles and skin tags are usually removed within one treatment, however larger moles may require multiple sessions.
Does mole removal hurt?
We administer local or topical anaesthetic prior to removal of any moles, so that the procedure is comfortable and stress free.
Will I be left with a scar?
Depending on the type of treatment you require, you may be left with a small scar. However, with one of Queensland’s most experienced scar revision laser dermatologists as our medical director and dermatologist, we can assist with reducing the appearance of any scar using our wide range of laser and non-laser devices that we use daily for scar revision treatments.
