Mole / Naveus / Warts

Mole is also medically named menolycytic naevus, is a collection of melanin at various layer from base of epithelium to dermo-epithelial junction, most of the time they are benign and no malignancy change. However, if they change in size, texture and become symptomatic, it warrants immediate medical attention for further evaluation. Normally benign moles or naevus can be eradicate by carbon dioxide laser. If the size of naevus is too big, surgical excision is recommended.

Warts is caused by human papilloma virus (HPV), most of the time they are asymptomatic and are transmitted via direct or indirect contact, especially there is a breach of skin surface. They can spread to adjacent area if not treated properly. They will not turn the lesion into malignancy but just affect the overall appearance.


  • CO2 Laser

    CO2 Laser

    CO2 Laser has been used to treat different skin problems, such as warts, benign naevus, syringoma, sebaceous hyperplasia, skin tags or polyps. Unlike cryotherapy, cautery and erosive solution, CO2 laser creates smaller wounds which heralds healing and recovering. Topical antibiotic will be applied to the treated areas afterwards to prevent wound infection and those wounds should be avoided excessive sun exposure.

    However, clinical assessment is mandatory for accurate diagnosis by medical doctor before receiving CO2 laser to prevent undiagnosed skin malignancy which can lead to devastating result.

  • Surgical Excision

    Surgical Excision

    Apart from CO2 Laser, some warty lesions, moles, nevus and skin polyps can be removed surgically. For sebaceous cyst, surgical excision under local anesthesia is considered the better option.


    • Medical consultation is advised for better understanding the procedure in terms of nature, steps and possible surgical risks.
    • Skin lesions will be marked out and anesthetized locally
    • Skin lesions will be removed surgically
    • Wound will be sutured subsequently.
