Moles are small, coloured spots which form on the skin. They may appear flat or raised, feel smooth or rough and some may even have hair growing out of them. Most people have them and they are usually nothing to worry about unless they change shape, size or colour. Although common moles may be present at birth, they usually appear later in childhood and increase during teenage years – most adults usually have between 10 to 40 on their face and body. Often, patients would like them removed for visual or practical reasons. Moles can often catch on necklaces or tight clothing, which can cause discomfort and occasional bleeding.
We use Cryotherapy that offers a quick and incredibly effective treatment that removes unwanted skin lesions and erases skin defects safety, precisely and comfortable. Controlled and pain free with no need for anaesthesia, it provides the perfect solution for unwanted benign Moles.
Cryo-Therapy emits a fine jet of nitrous oxide at -89C Allowing your clinical practioner to work with millimetre precision. Working in circular and criss-cross movements, the tiny cold blasts destroys the affected tissue by freezing the inner-cellular fluid, forming ice shards and crystals that rupture the cell membrane, Thereby destroying the cell.

Should you want a benign mole removed for cosmetic reasons, you must firstly either book in with us for a cancer screening check, or provide a letter from your GP confirming the mole is benign and not suspicious, the letter must also state that the GP deems the mole is safe for removal.
If you decide to use Body Perfection cancer screening service, after the scan and consultation you will receive a dermatologist report. Reports are usually sent out within a few days but could
take up to a week. If the report is all clear you may then talk to one of our technicians about removal. The consultation and procedure normally take around 20 to 30 minutes in total.
Body Perfection works with a cancer screening company specialized in spotting suspicious skin legions and we use innovative technology to identify any moles or legions that may need further investigation. We will photograph the mole/legion with the latest dermoscopy technology then
send a report in for assessment by a qualified dermatologist. The Cancer Screening company then sends a report directly to the client if all clear. If there is a cause for concern a HCA(Health Care Advisor) from the Cancer Screening company will contact the client directly to advise then of
appropriate action. Reports are normally replied within a week however can take up to 14 days.
