Moles are common blemishes on the skin that usually appear in the first few decades of life. The average adult can have up to 25 moles. Moles vary in size and colour and often develop terminal hairs due to their well developed vascular blood supply. Electrolysis is a safe, effective, quick and affordable method of visibly reducing the appearance of totally healthy Moles and is deployed only for sound reasons such as cosmetic, physiological or physical purposes. No excision is made and nothing is sent away for investigation. If there is any cause for concern over a mole then Electrolysis treatment is not recommended and will not proceed and you are advised to seek medical expertise.

A healthy mole will appear:

  • Shape: Symmetrical, round or oval.
  • Border: Sharp and well defined.
  • Colour: Skin colour or one shape darker/lighter.
  • Diameter: Usually less than 1/4 inch
  • Location: On sun exposed skin, face/limbs.
  • Onset: Usually during early childhood through to mid twenties.
  • Uniform: An individuals moles look very similar.

If a mole displays any significant change in size, shape or colour or symptoms of itching, irritating or burning, crust formation, ulceration or inability to heal, see your GP immediately.


Electrolysis can be used to treat the hairs in moles and/or the mole itself:

Hair removal: The probe is gently inserted down the hair follicle and the energy is released. A stinging sensation may be experienced and the hairs will be gently lifted from the follicle. To achieve permanent results, repeated treatments are required.

Mole reduction: High-frequency radio waves are emitted to target the specific individual mole. Cells are composed of 80% liquid and exposure to high-frequency radio waves causes this to evaporate. The tip of a small probe is tapped over the surface of the mole and a small stinging sensation and heat is experienced.
