How safe is this procedure in terms of scarring? The moles I would like removed are on my face. Is this procedure similiar to what a dermatologist would do to remove moles? What sort of training or certification does the person have who would be doing the procedure?

Dermatologist usually removes moles surgically and scars are very common. In our clinic experienced licensed technician uses a small electric instrument that looks like a pencil and essentially melts the mole. The current causes cauterization to mole’s root effectively killing and destroying the abnormal growth without damaging the surrounding tissues. In other words, it stops the blood supplies from flowing to specific area. Healing usually takes one to two weeks, and the area may remain slightly reddish or brownish for several months afterwards. Even if there is a slight color difference between that area and the surrounding skin it can usually easily be covered with makeup .The color, however, will almost always return to normal eventually. There is a still possibility to ended up with some skin discoloration in some cases . But the question really is, is it a good trade? If the scar is barely visible and the mole is quite raised and noticeable, then it is likely you will think it is a good trade to have it removed. If the mole is tiny, it may not be such a benefit to have it done.
