Hair follicles are situated deep within the skin. Removal of a superficial lesion from the surface of the skin may temporarily remove hair, however following this procedure it is likely that any hair involved will grow back. This is due to the hair follicle remaining intact throughout the procedure, enabling regeneration of the hair. Deeper surgical excision of lesions would be required to provide a permanent removal of any unwanted hairs within the treatment area.
Whilst unlikely in most cases, it is possible for a mole to continue growing and return following this procedure. In the unlikely event, further procedures may be required to obtain complete removal which may include surgical excision.
It is advisable to avoid the following activities in the days immediately following mole removal: Swimming or prolonged exposure to water, shaving in the area, use of strong topical cream/washes that may irritate, strenuous exercise or activity that may put tension on the treated area.
It is advisable to keep the treated area clean, dry and covered for 2-3 days following your procedure.
