As I mentionned you on my post “what to do in Perth” (in French), I spent a day on the beautiful Rottnest Island. If you never heard about it or if you’re just curious, let’s discover it together !
One year ago, I decided to remove a mole thanks to the laser. Indeed, I had a physical complex about that, especially one in my neck which was big and bulky. I used to never tied my hair because of that.
As it was a benign mole, I could remove it thanks to the laser, and do 4 others in the same time. (I would have a huge scar if I decided to do it with a surgery knife)
I’ve been in a Parisian clinic for my first appointment, and was quite happy to be able to proceed to the removal the same day !
It’s done under a local aenesthetic. Each mole is anesthetized. It’s not painful at all, but the feeling of the needle in the mole is quite strange and I didn’t feel comfortable with that.
Then, I had to wear glasses to protect my eyes from the laser light. Its was absolutely painless. However, I could smell my skin burning and that’s a weird feeling as well. But I was so hapy to finally get rid of this complex !
The small ones were pretty quick to remove !
One year after the laser mole removal, I can notice these results :
– The one in my neck just let a small red mark, barely noticeable
– A mole in my back didn’t let any scar !
– The one under my armpit let a very small and pinky scar, without any relief.
– However, the two others have a bad healing. One is between my chest got a pink scar with relief (even if the mole wasn’t in relief), and another one on my breast got a big scar. The creams didn’t help at all, and now I have these stains with relief. Another mole is actually growing up on it now.
To conclude, my advice would be to really think about it before taking the step. You never know how your skin is gonna cicatrize. It depends on a lot of factors that you can’t control.
I paid 500 € for the laser mole removal and about 20€ in healing cream.
The scars are now completely faded, I have no regrets at all !
