While moles, cysts, lesions and skin tags are common skin conditions, they can be irritating and uncomfortable. They can be effectively removed from the face and body, thanks to the latest techniques, to restore the appearance and comfort of your skin.
You may consider this treatment as an option to feeing more confident if you are concerned or even embarrassed about a mole, cyst, lesion, skin tag, or wart removal. Almost all common lesions are benign, but if you have a mole, cyst, skin tag or lesion that we suspect may not be, we will refer you to your doctor instead of removing it.
Having the cysts and/or moles removed from your face, neck or chest may lead to you feeling happier with your appearance if they are something you have felt self-conscious about for a while. You might find skin tags and cysts feel more obvious when wearing tight fitting clothing, or are uncomfortable and you worry that they’ll rupture when you are out in public. Having them removed will help give you additional peace of mind.
The procedure only takes around 15-30 minutes, depending on how many moles or cysts need removing, and the treatment is virtually pain-free because of the use of either a local or topical anaesthetic.
It is important to weigh up the risks involved against the benefits that the treatment can bring – just as with all types of medical aesthetic treatment.
Your medical aesthetic practitioner will talk you through any risks and complications, although possible side effects are usually minimal. They occasionally include infection or bleeding.
Moles and cysts are fairly common. While they are usually harmless, you could find that you feel happier about your appearance by having clearer skin . You might have noticed that your mole or cyst has changed in its shape and size, or it may be causing you discomfort and you have decided it is time to have it removed. It may also be bothering you if it is positioned in a prominent place or is particularly large.
Our surgeon assistants can talk you through the removal procedure at your free consultation so that you can decide if it is right for you.

Your journey step by step
Your journey with The Hospital Group begins with a consultation with our friendly medical aesthetic practitioners, this may be an Aesthetician, Nurse Practitioner or Doctor. During this conversation you can talk through why you’re interested in this treatment, how much it costs, if there are finance options available to you, whether you’re suitable for treatment, if you’ll need a one off treatment, or a full course, as well as potential treatment dates.
You can ask our medical aesthetic practitioners any questions as they are extremely knowledgeable and have undertaken extensive training. If you feel ready to proceed, we can carry out a laser patch test (where applicable) and book your first treatment for a date and time that suits you.
You can ask your medical aesthetic practitioner any final questions on the day of the treatment. All pre- and post-treatment advice will be discussed prior to the day itself, so you will know exactly what to expect during your treatment, including how long it will take, and how it will feel.
For most medical aesthetic treatments, you will be able to leave the clinic as soon as your treatment has been completed, and you should be able to go about your normal day-to-day activities. If you experience any mild discomfort, redness or swelling, this will subside within the following days. Any specific aftercare requirements will be discussed at your consultation.
