skin tag


The skin tag (mole) treatment can be performed because the moles on the skin carry the risk of skin cancer or when it disturbs the person aesthetically. Within the scope of mole treatment, there are different methods that can be preferred to remove moles on the skin. The method to be preferred within the scope of mole treatment is determined as a result of the joint decision of the physician and the patient.


Moles (skin tags) are formations that occur with the combination of melanocyte cells. Moles can occur in many parts of the body. Melanin is produced by cells called melanocytes. Melanin is a substance found in our body and gives color to the skin. It is not known why melanocyte cells clump together and form moles. Moles can occur anywhere on the body.

Moles are generally seen as a condition that does not disturb. Moles, especially on the limbs of the person, such as hands and arms, can cause a risk of discomfort due to reasons such as tripping. However, it should not be thought that all ego formations are harmless. Some moles pose a cancer risk. Therefore, unsymmetrical, recently darkened or rapidly growing moles should be considered as risk factors and a dermatologist should be consulted immediately.


There are many types of moles. Therefore, there are many different medical classifications. What type of mole is, whether it is dangerous, how it can be followed, and if necessary, with which method it can be treated, skin diseases, namely dermatology doctors, are in charge.

The most common classification of moles is based on their location within the layers of the skin. This also affects the form of treatment. In the early stage, moles are located between the epidermis, which is the upper layer of the skin, and the dermis, which is the middle layer, this type of mole is called "junctional nevus". They are flush with the skin, flat, smooth, darker than the skin. Junctional melanocytic nevus is the most common type. They are small formations that we call typical me that almost everyone has.

If moles develop, they grow towards the dermis, which is the middle layer of the skin, and these are called "compound nevi". If they are located only in the middle layer of the skin, they are called "dermal nevi". Compound and dermal nevi are thicker, palpable, and usually raised skin lesions.


There are different methods that can be preferred for the removal process. While mole treatment can be performed with surgery, non-surgical mole removal can also be performed with technologies such as laser and radio frequency. In the case of surgical removal of the mole, non-surgical technological methods are generally preferred because there are small stitches on the skin of the person. In addition, it should be said that non-surgical mole treatments are generally preferred for benign moles.

Mole Removal Surgery
Benign removal surgery is a surgical operation performed under local anesthesia. The steps of the removal surgery are as follows:

  • First of all, local anesthesia is applied to the patient in order not to feel pain and pain during the operation. Small needles are used for anesthesia and anesthesia is applied both around and under the mole. In this way, a comfortable operation process is provided for the patient.

  • After the anesthesia shows its effect, the incision is opened with a surgical operation and the mole is removed as a full layer.

  • After the mole and the subcutaneous fat tissue are completely removed, the area is closed with stitches.

The mole removal surgery is an operation that takes approximately 25 – 30 minutes. A minimal scar remains after a successful mole removal surgery. This scar is usually a few millimeters larger than the size of the mole. Finally, it should be emphasized that if a suspicious situation is observed in the mole of the person, pathological examination is performed.

Non-surgical mole removal treatments are frequently preferred because there are no incision scars and short-term operations. All of these methods are carried out with high technology. The most frequently preferred methods within the scope of non-surgical mole removal methods are:

  • Laser Molle Removal Treatment

  • Radio Frequency Implant Removal Treatment


Before laser mole treatment, your doctor will make a detailed examination of the following conditions in the area you complain about, by means of a dermoscope:

  • Am I asymmetrical?

  • Does it have irregular borders?

  • Does it contain different colors?

  • Is it larger than 6 millimeters?

  • Is there an evolution in his growth?

After reviewing these features, your doctor may approve the plexr laser I treatment. Plexr is a modern technique that uses plasma energy, known as the fourth state of matter. Plexr laser mole treatment is a procedure with modern technology that will help to remove unwanted benign skin formations quickly, safely and painlessly. Laser mole removal takes about 30 minutes with application and post-application care. It takes about 5 minutes for each mole. Flesh me laser treatment is never a painful procedure. For this reason, it is preferred by many people. The local anesthetic given before the procedure may cause very little pain, as with any injection. However, after the procedure has started, the person will not feel the laser treatment. Your doctor will test that the area is numb before starting anyway.


In How Many Sessions Is Laser Mole Removal Performed?

If a suitable laser is used for this procedure, mole removal is done in one go. Session treatments are not mole treatments, but spot treatments.

Is Laser Mole Removal a Painful Procedure?

Since the application is performed with local anesthesia, pain does not occur. There is no pain afterwards.

Will there be recurrences after laser mole treatment?

Sometimes melanocytic moles, especially at the skin level, can recur after treatment. After an average of 1 month, it shows itself in the form of a small brown color in its old place. In that case it should be removed again.

Will there be any scars after removal?

Depending on the size of the mole, the depth of the mole, and the method of mole removal, some may experience slight scarring. A crust may form over the area where the mole was taken. The crust is expected to fall off on its own, and the new skin under the crust is formed in a healthy way. In the mole removal process performed with aesthetic surgery, a very slight scar remains as aesthetic sutures are made.

Will Mole Cause Cancer If Removed?

There is a misconception among the people that moles can turn bad when "knife touched". On the contrary, if the dangerous moles are not surgically removed, there is a risk of transformation into a life-threatening skin cancer called “Malignant Melanoma”. Malignant Melanoma is a malignant type of cancer that is increasing rapidly all over the world. Therefore, detection and removal of dangerous moles can save a person's life.

The risk of developing malignant melanoma is 1.5% in the general population. This rate is increasing day by day due to the thinning of the ozone layer in our atmosphere and the increasing exposure to harmful UV rays. After the mole is removed, a pathological examination is performed.
