Scarring After Mole Removal

Either it is aesthetic or health purposes or not, if a mole is surgically removed, it always leaves a scar on the skin. Scarring after mole removal is not optional or depends on individual reasons. Since every person has different types of tissue, skin, metabolism, body, and immune system, they may all react to surgery like a mole removal in different ways.

The size or intensity of a scar after mole removal may differ from person to person, light-skinned people are more likely to get a scar after mole removal surgery.

Dark-skinned people are the luckiest candidates of mole removal surgery. The scarrings after mola removal generally take a dark, black-like color. This is something in dark-skinned people’s favor. By combining the color of the person’s skin, the scarrings become less noticeable.

The size or shape of the scarring generally based on the mole’s size and shape as well. If the mole is a big one, the scarring will look big and so noticeable. However, the shape of the surgical instrument that is used in removing the mole also affects the scar formation after the surgery.

Mole Removal Without Scarring

Scarrings are mostly about the procedure’s being invasive or not. If you cut the skin, in most cases it leaves a scar. However, the non-invasive methods like laser mole removal involve the usage of laser beams to remove the moles on the skin. The laser mole removal method is best against smaller moles because their roots don’t go deep. They are just located on the surface of the skin and can easily be laser-beamed.

Most patients don’t experience such scarrings. In some cases, laser mole removal may also leave scarring after the procedure. But these scars can be undone with additional plastic surgery.

Remember invasive methods are not capable of eliminating the moles without leaving scarring on the patient’s skin. Since the incisions take always take place, there is also a risk of infection, too.
