Mole Removal Adelaide
Moles (medically referred to as “nevi”) are small pigmented lesions on the skin. Moles are present at birth, while some can present later on in life. Moles come in all shapes and sizes and can be brown, red, black or skin colour. Many people often refer to moles as “beauty marks” and others find them unsightly and want them removed. The number, size and type of moles vary from individual to individual, since every one of us is different. Almost everyone has a few moles, and some people develop hundreds of moles. People with light skin have a propensity to develop more moles than patients with darker skin type. The good news is that mole removal is an option and can be performed with minimal scarring.
We look forward to your visit.

Why It Is Important To Have Your Moles Checked By A Skin Doctor Before Removal
While some moles are precancerous, most are benign. But it is very important to know that some moles can develop into a skin cancer called melanoma. This can occur near or inside an existing mole. Melanoma is the deadliest type of skin cancer and people with many moles tend to have an increased risk of skin cancer. Around 20-30% of Melanomas are found in existing moles while 70-80% arise on apparently normal skin. Mole removal should only be performed by a doctor that is qualified in skin cancer.
What Methods Of Mole Removal Do We Offer?
Advanced Cosmetic Medicine offers four methods of mole removal: laser, shaving, excision and curettage. During your consultation, Dr Targett will examine your moles before deciding on the best method to use.
The methods of mole removal we offer include:
- Laser mole removal
- Shave Removal
- Punch biopsy
How Long Does The Treatment Take?
Shorter than the average lunch break. Including consultation, your treatment will only take half an hour.
Do I Need Any Preparation For Having Mole Removal?
Just bring yourself. Dr Targett will prep your treatment area for you.
What Will Happen During The Treatment?
During the prepping process, a numbing cream will be applied to your mole. Depending on the size and location of your mole, a numbing injection may also be required.
If the mole looks suspicious, Dr Targett will perform a biopsy and send it for a pathology test. In the event that test results are positive for skin cancer, Dr Targett can perform further margin excisions.
Will There Be Any Scarring?
During your consultation, Dr Targett will check with you if you have previous keloid scar tendencies. If you do, you should avoid cosmetic mole removals.
When performing your mole removal treatment, Dr Targett will minimise visible scarring by placing the incision in an inconspicuous location or in alignment with the natural lines and folds of the skin so your scar will be less noticeable.
Dr Targett also encourages using scar gel on the wound after the treatment to help minimise scarring. However, the amount of scarring varies from patient to patient and cannot be predicted.
Choose a Doctor Qualified in Skin Cancer for Your Mole Removal
Abnormal or unsightly moles can generally be excised in a brief and straightforward outpatient procedure performed under local anaesthesia by Dr Targett. Dr Targett has vast experience in skin cancer treatment, particularly in the treatment of malignant melanoma. Dr Targett’s experience and expertise in skin cancer treatment make her an ideal specialist for the identification and treatment of both “normal” non-cancerous moles and “abnormal” pre-cancerous moles. Along with her knowledge of skin cancer treatment, Dr Targett’s aptitude for cosmetic surgery enables her to minimize the potential of an unsightly scar formation during the mole removal process.
Will There Be Any Side Effects After The Treatment?
You may experience some pain after the mole removal treatment. Chance of infection is low, as long as you keep your wound dry after the procedure.
What Is The Aftercare For Mole Removal?
Your treatment area will be dressed with a special dressing which prevents your wound from absorbing water. You will be able to shower with it on. The dressing will need changing every three days.
Sutures for moles removed from the face can be removed after one week. Sutures on other body parts can be removed after two weeks. During this time, you should avoid swimming or performing any physical activity that may disrupt the sutures.
After your sutures are removed, if the excision mole removal method was used, scar gel will be applied to your wounds to minimise scarring. For other removal techniques, scar gel can be applied after three days.
Rest assured that Dr Targett will be available for any aftercare treatment you may require.
