Moles can be removed using our soft surgery techniques with our plasma device “Plexr” or “Felc.” There is no cutting involved, so no scar, meaning we can treat any lesions anywhere, even on the face and near the eyes. Felc is an innovative treatment that uses plasma energy.
There are 4 states of matter, solid, liquid and gas. When gas is ionized it forms plasma the 4th state of matter. Plasma is a very intense form of energy, it creates a spark like a bolt of lightning. The Felc tool, ionizes surrounding gas, creating a very precise high energy spark, we use this to burn away unwanted tissue, such as excess eyelid skin and moles.

There will be a scab after the mole has been removed. It is very important to let this fall of naturally. Do not pick or rub and keep it dry. Once the scab has dropped off use regular SPF to prevent pigmentation.
I came into clinic today to have a small cyst and two moles removed from my face. I cannot praise Dr Hill enough. She was extremely friendly and professional and the whole experience from booking the consultation with Cherry to speaking with Dr Hill and having the procedure itself exceeded my expectation. I would recommend The Hampton Clinic over and over again!
Frequently Asked Questions
Is it safe?
Dr Hill has had 20 years of experience as a Doctor, having done many years of dermatology as a GP. She is highly skilled and experienced at examining moles. If there is any doubt at all about the lesion in question she will advise a dermatology referral for excision and histology.
What are the risks of treatment?
Moles and skin lesions can recur. We don’t know why they grow in the first place.
Infection is a possibility.
Hypopigmentation is a white patch that is left in place of the mole, this can occur occasionally.
Hyperpigmentation i.e a dark patch can appear, usually if the scab is picked or SPF not applied.
Do moles come back?
Moles and other skin lesions can recur, but most don’t. The end result is cosmetically very pleasing in most cases.
