What is mole or cyst removal?

Do you have moles, cysts, skin tags and lesions that you want to remove? Whilst they are common skin conditions, they can be irritating and uncomfortable. With help from the most advanced techniques, they can be easily removed from the face and body to restore the comfort and appearance of your skin.

You may consider this treatment as an option 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 one that we suspect may not be, we will refer you to your doctor instead of removing it. 

What are the benefits of mole or cyst removal?

Removing cysts and/or moles 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 

Are there any risks?

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 can include infection or bleeding

Is it right for me?

While moles and cysts are fairly common, and 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.

Mole & Cyst Removal FAQs

More FAQs
How much does mole or cyst removal cost?

The cost of your mole or cyst removal treatment will depend on the number of growths that need removed. Our surgeon assistant will give you a detailed breakdown of the cost involved.

How long does mole/cyst removal take?
The procedure can take around 30 minutes, depending on the number of moles and/or cysts which are being removed. A topical anaesthetic will be applied 5-10 minutes prior to treatment.
Is the treatment painful?
You will not feel any pain during the treatment because of the topical or local anaesthetic which will be applied to the area. It may feel slightly sore afterwards when this has worn off, but any mild pain after the procedure can be treated with over the counter painkillers.
Will mole or cyst removal leave a scar?
While scarring is minimal from the techniques used in the procedure, you may have a small, faint scar that will fade in time.
Are there any after effects or side effects?
While it is very rare to experience side effects with mole and cyst removal, there is a risk of infection, bleeding and scarring. Our highly experienced clinicians will talk you through the risks involved before you decide whether you wish to go ahead with the procedure.
Which skin conditions do you treat?
We offer treatment for pigmented moles/growths on the skin. Cysts sacs filled with fluid or semi-fluid material. Skin tags small protruding pieces of skin that can grow in the groin area, armpits, neck and eyelids. Skin lesions surface growths or patches of the skin that don't resemble the skin around it. Lentigines, small dark spots on the skin that can be a genetic condition caused by excessive radiation or sun exposure
Who will perform the treatment?
This procedure is commonly performed by our resident Dermatologist, who will remove the mole, cyst, skin tag or lesion, and send it for analysis to ensure that there are no abnormal cells. Our experienced doctors will then complete the procedure by inserting small stitches.
Is any aftercare required?
You'll be able to leave the clinic as soon as your treatment has been completed, and you should be fine to go about your normal day-to-day activities. You'll need to keep the wound dry for two days and you'll be advised to return to the clinic to have your stitches removed 7-10 days post-treatment.

Next steps

Your journey step by step

Your consultation

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, 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.

The treatment

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.


We are here to support you throughout your medical aesthetics journey, we believe that the highest quality aftercare is just as important as the treatment itself. If you have any questions or concerns at all, you can contact us at any time.
