Neck and facial moles/skin tags can be both bothersome and unsightly. Patients frequently shy away from their removal due to fears of scarring afterward. Historically, moles have been removed by surgical excision (cutting), which can, indeed, result in a scar. Removal by way of radiofrequency (RF) however, is often referred to as “scarless” mole removal. While no mole removal can be guaranteed as 100% “scarless”, the RF technique is about as close to scarless as a patient can get! On occasion, we may still recommend removal via traditional excision, but the vast majority of neck and facial moles we see in our practice can be removed using RF technology. A small amount of numbing medication is injected beneath the mole which is then quickly “melted” away. Patients are instructed to keep the treatment site covered with healing ointment for about 1 week. After roughly seven days, the area looks slightly pink with healing well underway. Skin tags can usually be removed using this same approach.
