Anesthesia for mole removal

Reading Time: <1 minuteIn principle, the anesthetic used for mole removal is lidocaine hydrochloride, or xylocaine. https://www.kegg.jp/medicus-bin/japic_med_product?id=00000332-003is used.Xylocaine, which contains a vasoconstrictor called epirenamin, is used.Epilenamine has the effect of constricting blood vessels to control bleeding and prolonging the effective time of her xylocaine during treatment.Medical school textbooks state that it is contraindicated for use on the tip of the nose and fingertips, but currently clinically there are almost no problems. (It was thought that skin necrosis may occur due to vasoconstriction.) Concentrations of XNUMX% to XNUMX% formulations are often used. XNUMX% is a sufficient concentration and there is no problem in use.At our hospital, we use xylocaine, but as the name of xylocaine lidocaine hydrochloride suggests, it has an acidic PH of XNUMX to XNUMX. It causes sexual pain.For this reason, in order to adjust the pH, he mixes an alkaline agent called Meiron to further lower the concentration, and he adjusts the pH to about XNUMX, which is as close to the living body as possible.In actual use, compared to traditional Xylocaine injections, he was far less painful and less burdensome on the patient.Also, the needle used for the injection is XNUMXG to XNUMXG, which reduces the pain considerably.When removing a large number of moles, injections are required for the number of moles, so pain relief care is always required during anesthesia for the patient.Even if the amount of anesthesia required for mole removal is small and simple, pain can be alleviated with careful injections.At our hospital, we remove moles by using ultra-fine needles and using our own PH-adjusted xylocaine anesthetic.

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
