Skin Blemish Removal

Mole and Skin Lesion Removal 

Facial aesthetics should encompass a holistic assessment of the patient's skin and needs. We understand that large moles, skin tags and other skin blemishes can impact your confidence and even cause pain. Historically, these could be removed by your GP surgery. Unfortunately, moles, skin tags and other skin lesions are no longer removed by the NHS in Gloucestershire. 

At Skin Redefined, Cheltenham, we are happy to offer treatment of benign skin lesions using advanced electrolysis, a type of electrocautery.  All treatments are carried by Nurse Practitioner and Prescriber, Kelly Whittaker. Kelly is an experienced Nurse of 12 years and has undertaken additional training in identification of skin lesions and accredited by MASCED. 

Advanced electrolysis can be used to treat the following skin blemishes:

  • skin tags

  • warts

  • seborrheic keratosis

  • cherry angiomas/campbell de morgan spots

  • pigmentation

  • moles

  • thread veins/spider veins

  • xanthelasma

  • syringoma

How does advanced electrolysis work? 

A fine needle probe is used to dry out and cauterise the area. The lesion will turn into a scab which will fall off within a week or two. Several sessions may be required, 3 weeks apart to allow for healing in between. For some lesions, we recommend a check by a GP or dermatologist prior to any treatment. ​

 

 

Is it painful to have a skin tag or mole removed? 

Having a mole or other skin lesion removed isn't generally painful, although some mild discomfort is expected.​
