Reading Time: <1 minuteDoes the patient have stains?mole?Wart?are often indistinguishable.Even though moles, age spots, and warts have similar shapes, their formation and developmental mechanisms are medically completely different.Elderly patients often come to our clinic to remove age-related warts or raised spots called senile warts. They are easier to remove than moles, leave no scars, and have less risk of recurrence..Although it can be easily removed with a carbon dioxide laser, at our hospital we often use the cooling EL method, which cools the affected area to -XNUMX°C and evaporates it using high frequency waves.It requires much more skill than carbon dioxide laser removal, but can be done in a shorter time.Downtime is often less than carbon dioxide laser removal.Because the procedure is easier, it is often selected as a treatment compared to carbon dioxide laser removal. We are carrying out.

Mole removal Care based on wound healing theory

Reading Time: <1 minuteCare after mole removal is more important than the mole removal procedure.The wound will begin to heal immediately after the mole is removed.If proper care is not taken at this time, not only will healing be delayed, but scarring will likely remain.Care is required immediately after treatment, that is, immediately after mole removal.Specifically, never disinfect the wound.Do not let dry.Never apply cream-based ointments.is.Many patients receive mole removal at our clinic, but we always provide detailed explanations of the care to be taken after mole removal and carefully instruct patients to perform the procedure themselves.Wounds after mole removal are treated in the same manner as abrasions and burns.Disinfection is not only completely pointless, but also prolongs healing.Disinfection destroys the cells that promote healing.Disinfecting can also make you more susceptible to infection.At our hospital, after removing a mole, we always apply a medical wound dressing to protect the scar, and at the same time, we use moist therapy to keep the wound wet.This promotes granulation and epithelial formation.This leads to mole scars becoming less noticeable.Removing a mole means creating skin that lacks epithelium.If you protect this area and encourage epithelial formation as soon as possible, there will be no risk of infection, normal healing will be promoted, and scars will be less likely to remain.When removing a mole with a carbon dioxide laser, it is assumed that a burn has occurred and care is required after the mole is removed.The thermal energy of the carbon dioxide laser evaporates the mole tissue, but it also causes thermal damage to normal skin, causing burns.For this reason, wounds after mole removal heal more slowly than simple abrasions. You can leave the medical dressing on for XNUMX days. After XNUMX days have passed, you will be asked to remove the dressing yourself and wash the wound with tap water or a shower.Bacteria that can cause infection, such as grime and sweat, are also washed away.After that, you can apply a medical wound dressing or a commercially available wound power pad for another XNUMX days to complete healing. https://www.sakae-clinic.com/wound/p01.html?_ga=2.16767669.22389379.1637503973-1223386255.1510898913 Epithelialization on the face, which has good blood flow, can be completed after a few days of application, but on the body and extremities, especially the legs and back, blood flow is poor and epithelialization often does not occur even for a week, so it is not recommended to use the wound dressing for a long period of time. In order to delay the healing of the wound, even if it is a little sticky, you may dry it and wait for it to heal. Redness will remain for about XNUMX months, so avoid direct exposure to UV rays on the area where the mole was removed.If epithelialization is not completed when exposed to ultraviolet rays, pigmentation may occur.There is no need to take antibiotics unless there is an emergency.

Mole removal raised shape

Reading Time: <1 minuteTreatment methods for mole removal vary depending on the location, size, type and shape of the mole.Naturally, if we suspect malignancy, we will remove the tissue and perform a pathological examination to determine whether it is malignant or not.Generally, if a dermascope does not show any malignant findings and all clearly benign moles are removed by excision, the scar after the excision is often more noticeable than the mole.The shape of the mole is classified as: XNUMX: Raised mole XNUMX: Slightly raised mole XNUMX: Flat mole However, raised moles can be easily removed and are less likely to leave scars.For about XNUMX years, mole removal has been performed using the evaporation method using carbon dioxide laser irradiation.When you hear the word laser, you have an image of cutting-edge technology, but the system of the carbon dioxide laser device itself is a system that was developed XNUMX years ago, and its principles have hardly evolved.The same is true in theory.Just because it's a carbon dioxide laser doesn't mean it can be removed completely.We remove moles at a low price with unlimited carbon dioxide laser irradiation.We receive many inquiries about cases where moles are not removed and only burn scars remain after being irradiated at medical institutions.Just because it's a carbon dioxide laser doesn't mean it can be removed completely.Especially for raised moles, our hospital recommends a method that uses high-frequency heat to carefully and precisely evaporate the mole tissue, avoiding post-burn scars and making the scar less noticeable.Do not use carbon dioxide laser irradiation.Of course, technically speaking, advanced techniques are required, but he can remove it very cleanly in most cases, and there are no noticeable scars after the surgery.For flat moles, the pigment extends to the deep layers of the dermis and subcutaneous tissue, so if you try to remove it completely at once, it will require evaporation treatment to the deep part, which can easily cause scarring, so it is difficult to completely remove it in one go. There are many cases.On that point, if you first evaporate the raised mole tissue until it becomes flat, the wound will heal beautifully and it will be difficult to leave a scar.If you are a specialist in moles, he will be able to diagnose which treatment is best and what care is required before surgery.

We have increased inquiries about moles.

Reading Time: <1 minuteAs the new coronavirus infection spread, people began covering their faces with masks, leaving only the eyes exposed.Many companies require employees to wear masks indoors.Currently, the number of patients undergoing mole removal is rapidly increasing.Carbon dioxide laser treatment is famous for the removal of moles, but at our clinic, we use heat ablation treatment using electronic energy or thulium laser (Lavieen), which leaves fewer scars and can be removed reliably in a short time compared to carbon dioxide laser. We recommend tissue ablation treatment. >>About mole removal All-you-can-remove moles are carried out for a fixed fee.At medical institutions, removal using a carbon dioxide laser is common, but there is a possibility that a very noticeable hypertrophic scar will remain, so careful consideration is required.There are many patients who come to our clinic for consultation regarding hypertrophic scars that have been caused by moles being removed using carbon dioxide laser. CO₂ or carbon dioxide laser mole removal is called his laser and has a cutting-edge image, but it has been used clinically for over 25 years.In a sense, it is an old-fashioned treatment that carefully removes moles and is not necessarily recommended as the first choice.In fact, more than XNUMX years ago, I used a domestically produced carbon dioxide laser system developed by Japan Infrared Industry Co., Ltd. (Neek), which was sold at a list price of about XNUMX million yen at the time, to remove moles.When I started working as a cosmetic surgeon, the basic treatment for mole removal was excision, so the carbon dioxide laser system, which allows moles to evaporate and disappear simply by irradiating them with a laser beam, was revolutionary and magical. It looked like a piece of equipment.Scars are less noticeable than open surgery, and over XNUMX years ago, scar healing was not as much of a problem.There was a time when patients who underwent laser treatment were satisfied as long as the size and color of their moles improved.However, now that there are systems that can remove it more cleanly, the issue of scars such as hypertrophic scars caused by carbon dioxide laser removal has come into focus.I am also reluctant to continue using the same treatment method I used XNUMX years ago.Currently, raised moles are mainly removed using a treatment method that evaporates the mole tissue using heat generated by radio frequency electronic energy.For flat moles, laser irradiation with a medium called thulium is used to vaporize and remove the tissue.Moles are diagnosed using a device called dermoscopy.If malignancy is suspected, the affected area must be removed by excision or hollowing out and pathological examination performed to confirm the diagnosis.For tumors that have been definitively diagnosed as benign, we do not remove only the mole, but choose ablation with electronic energy or treatment with thulium laser.Aftercare involves applying a medical sticker for several days and applying moist therapy, without disinfecting the affected area.Disinfecting wounds can delay wound healing and increase the risk of infection due to tissue damage caused by disinfectants.The most common reason to remove a mole is for aesthetic purposes, but there are also cases where fortune telling recommends removal, or when there are symptoms such as itching or pain.Mole removal does not mean that all scars will heal in the same way and become less noticeable.Depending on the area of ​​the body, the scar may bulge and become a hypertrophic scar, so careful consideration is required before surgery.On the face, scars are most likely to be visible around the mouth, lower jaw, and above the cheekbones.On the body, scars tend to be more noticeable on the shoulders, over the deltoid muscles, and over the sternum, and the reason for this is that the skin is so tense that it constantly pulls on the surrounding areas.Particularly in these areas, there are many cases where the scar heals as a white bulge called a hypertrophic scar.Depending on the location, excision surgery can also cure the mole with almost no scarring, so if the mole is too large, surgery may be necessary.It is difficult to remove the tip of the nose because there is cartilage just below it, so treatment methods other than removal must be selected.Mole removal is not a difficult cosmetic surgery procedure, but there are many points to be careful of, such as post-operative care and selection of the surgical site. We recommend that you take it. contact@sakae-clinic.com phone:0120566680
