Dermatoscopic examination as an effective method of prevention
At our clinic, we are able to provide comprehensive skin care services from diagnostics, treatment, to subsequent consultation concerning skin diseases. The examination is performed by a method called digital dermatoscopy.
Many different pigment manifestations may occur on the skin, the vast majority of which are completely harmless. Some types of naevi may undergo changes that indicate a danger. The sooner these changes are revealed and the naevus is adequately removed, the greater the chance for permanent cure. The search for potential tumour deposits and their removal before the emergence of the real problem is a very effective prevention method. If some of your birthmarks or moles appear suspicious (itch, change its shape or size), there is nothing easier than to visit a specialist who will examine you and help you choose a suitable solution.
Removal of birthmarks and moles
We normally use the alexandrite laser with a wavelength of 755 nm to remove regular moles. Accurately aimed laser beam breaks down pigment into small particles, which are subsequently washed away from the body. Alexandrite laser is a solution for senile freckles and other unwanted pigmentation (eg. dark scars, etc.).
Dome-shaped pigmented moles are removed by erbium laser. Its beam gradually evaporates the individual layers of the mole. A small wound appears, which heals by forming a scab. Larger moles can be removed under local anaesthesia by excision. The excised formation is subsequently sent for histological analysis.
The best time for the removal of birthmarks and moles is in the autumn and winter months. The pain is bearable, but at the request of a client, we can of course use local anaesthesia.
