There are 3 different Mole Surgery Treatment methods practiced by the medical profession. They are shave excision, punch biopsy and excisional surgery. In shave excision the mole is slightly raised above the skin's surface and the dermatologist would use a sharp scalpel to shave off the mole after numbing the area. In punch biopsy, the mole is punched out with the use of a special device. Usually the moles are small in size and the removal is cylindrical in shape. In excisional surgery the moles are more flat and closer to the skin, so a surgical mole removal procedure is employed. In this surgery the mole is cut and the area stitched up. Laser Mole Removal Procedure is also another method for removing moles. This method is much more thorough and is done through a few sessions, instead of a one off procedure. The three removal procedures do not take very long to perform. The doctor does take more time in the preparation of the skin and in numbing the zone before the cutting or shaving is done. The healing time will depend on the nature of the skin of the individual, but it will definitely take a couple of weeks for the skin to feel normal around the area of the surgery. In all 4 methods described above, the moles get completely removed and the skin becomes clean and smooth.
