Facial Mole Removal In Detail

By Brian Gomas

Facial moles or warts are the most problematic anyone can get because they are exposed on an area of the body that is almost impossible to cover up. Their location is the source of all the emotional anguish these people feel. Most facial warts are usually unsightly, which is why many of those affected by them seek out facial mole removal methods.

The composition of a mole is actually clusters of normal skin pigment cells. These cells in a normal situation would be spread more or less evenly all over the skin. In some cases however, when some kind of change occurs in the body, these pigment cells group together forming clusters referred to as warts. Some types of moles are very easy to treat or stop while others are complex and harder to reverse.

One would generally have to consult a doctor to have the moles examined, before a decisive course of action is taken on what treatment should be used. The doctor will carry out an examination of the moles and recommend an appropriate course of action to be taken to eliminate this problem. There are a number of measures that can be taken, but they are broadly categorized into natural methods and surgical removal.

Natural treatment is preferred to chemical remedies because it has few side effects. Surgery is very expensive and drugs taken for this kind of problem are likely to have some side effects and withdrawal symptoms. These natural remedies are tea tree oil, onion juice, baking soda, dandelion roots and sour apple.

The sour apple, onion and dandelion roots are squeezed to extract their juice which is then applied directly onto the mole using a cotton swab. Baking soda is usually added to another ingredient such as vinegar or castor oil to form a paste. This paste is applied in the same fashion as the other extracts. The castor oil and tea tree oil are already prepared and in liquid state hence they are applied as they are.

Most of the times this condition is not of any threat to the life and health of anyone who has them. This is however not always the case. Warts may at times pose serious health concerns. This brings surgical removal into focus. There are several ways to go about this depending on location and appearance of the moles.

Laser surgery is a method in which the mole is removed without cutting into the skin. This ensures that the wound heals very fast and also leaves no scar. Excision stitches is yet another means by which moles can be removed. This method however cuts into the skin and leaves scars on the areas on which it is applied. Cauterization is one other method in which the mole is burned off safely. There is no cutting involved and thus no scar is left.

Other surgical methods are cryosurgery and shave biopsy. Cryosurgery involves the placing of a freezing liquid in the mole to kill the problematic cells. This involves no cutting hence no scar forms. In shave biopsy, a scalpel is used to raise the mole up and heat is applied to the underside to stop any bleeding.
