Progress of mole removal

Reading Time: <1 minuteWe receive many inquiries about mole removal every day. In order to remove moles as much as possible, many ablation treatments using carbon dioxide laser or electric vaporization are also performed. If there is even the slightest suspicion of a malignant tumor or if pathological examination is necessary, it is assumed that removal by excision is preferable. However, from a cosmetic point of view, a considerable amount of scarring may remain, which may be more noticeable than a mole. Although mole treatment using carbon dioxide laser is considered to be the most advanced method, I have been using it for 30 years. Since the treatment is performed using a carbon dioxide laser, moles can be removed neatly and there will be no scars left. In many cases, it is better to have a highly skilled specialist carefully remove the stain using electrotranspiration, leaving no scars. Heat is generated before transpiration, so in our hospital we repeatedly cool the affected area with a -20°C cooling device to prevent heat damage to normal tissues. For anesthesia, we use a drug containing xylocaine and meiron, which has a pH adjusted and causes almost no pain during injection. Depends on the location of the mole, the size of the mole, the depth of the pigment on the mole, the condition of the mole, and the treatment after mole removal. You have to consider everything and decide whether it can be removed cleanly. Immediately after surgery, the area will appear red and look like an abrasion. Because the epithelium is missing, a medical dressing will be applied for about a week to allow for early epithelialization. Scars tend to remain (raised, hypertrophic scars) in areas where the skin moves, such as around the eyes, mouth, and lower jaw. The redness will disappear in about 4 months, changing to almost skin color and becoming less noticeable. During these four months, it is necessary to block out as much light as possible. If the affected area is exposed to strong ultraviolet rays, pigmentation may remain for a long time. The first week of care is important. Immediately after removal, a steroid ointment containing antibiotics is applied once. Apply a medical wound dressing over it. This will cover the scar after mole removal and keep it moist, allowing the epithelium to grow. Once epithelial formation occurs, no dressing is required. No disinfection or topical medication is required. As a general rule, hospital visits are not required.

Beauty clinic in violation of the Medical Practitioners Act [Crime]

Reading Time: <1 minuteThere have been many cases in which patients who come to our hospital have been diagnosed by someone other than a doctor and recommended surgery, resulting in harm. There are many cases where a counselor who is not a doctor and who does not seem to have medical qualifications will examine, diagnose, and remove the mole for her at a high cost, and if she performs the same-day surgery, they will give her a special discount and force her to perform the surgery on the same day. There are complaints from patients. No one other than a doctor can diagnose it. In addition, benign tumors such as senile warts that almost do not require removal at all and can be easily removed using carbon dioxide laser or electrolysis. Excision is not an option. The problem is that counselors, who are not doctors, examine patients, make diagnoses, and recommend surgery. This is a fraudulent method in which all benign tumors that do not need to be removed undergo resection and demand a high treatment fee. This is a criminal act carried out in the name of medical care. This is an unacceptable act that gives a very bad image to aesthetic medicine. Many cosmetic surgeons know that this cosmetic surgery clinic is a problematic and unscrupulous cosmetic surgery clinic that uses flashy TV commercials and listing advertisements. I hope that patients will be well-informed and have the courage to refuse treatment if someone other than their doctor recommends treatment.
