Cosmetic Mole Removal Ottawa
A skin mole is a grouping of cells that show above the skin; they can either be darker or redder in appearance. Some of these areas are flat and other areas project out above the skin. Skin moles, also known as beauty marks, are very common. Almost every person has at least one mole on their skin.
Removal of a mole in Ottawa can be done by surgical excision of the mole and a small area around it. Surgical excision is a common technique used after cleaning and numbing the area. The removal of a skin mole takes only a few minutes. Then, the tissue is gently closed using sutures and treated so that it can heal properly. There should be no pain involved after the area is numbed.
There are other small lumps and bumps on the body that can also cause a patient concern from a cosmetic perspective. These may include lumps under the skin along the scalp, neck, back, arms, or legs. As well, there can be skin tags along any area of the body. These can also be removed using surgical excision. The procedure is essentially the same.
After every mole or lump and bump removal in Ottawa, the area will heal with small scab over 14 days in most people. The sutures that are placed will be removed in 7-10 days. The scab will exfoliate off and leave a healing area. The initial healing area will be red in colour and may be flat or slightly raised for some people. This area will fade in colour over a few months and the raised area will also decrease over a period of about 6 months. You can apply makeup over the area after the sutures are removed.
