Laser Mole Removal

Certain types of cosmetically bothersome moles can be safely and effectively removed by laser treatment. Rejuvaderm is the only Laser clinic in Northern Alberta to offer this type of removal.

How Is Laser Mole Removal Performed?
Dr. Malcolm and Dr. Wong use the fractionated CO2 laser to expertly remove certain moles. This laser ablates the surface of the mole to leave it flush with the skin surface. The treated area heals quickly.

Why Would I Choose Laser Mole Removal?
The main advantage of laser mole removal is the outstanding cosmetic outcome. Most patients find the scar is barely noticeable after laser. Excision (cutting out) of a mole leaves an obvious scar which varies depending upon how it is cut out.

Is Laser Safe?
Your safety is our primary concern and all moles are examined by Dr. Malcolm, Dermatologist, prior to laser treatment to ensure first and foremost that the mole is not worrisome and that the spot is actually a mole and not a skin cancer (these spots would require medical management). Once it is confirmed to be a harmless mole, Dr. Malcolm will review with you if laser is indeed a possible treatment option. Dr. Malcolm is a Canadian and US board-certified Dermatologist and her assessment is essential prior to laser. This laser treatment is only performed by Dr. Malcolm and Dr. Wong.

What Other ‘Spots’ Can Be Removed with Laser?
Dilated oil glands called ‘Sebaceous Hyperplasia’ are commonly mistaken for moles and these lesions can also be safely and effectively removed with laser treatment. Again, a proper consultation is required with Dr. Malcolm prior to laser.

What is The Cost of Laser Mole Removal?
Since laser mole removal is done for purely cosmetic reasons, it is not covered by Alberta Health. The cost depends upon the size and the number of moles removed.
