Moles or Melanocytic nevi are small often slightly raised blemishes on the skin which are quite dark due to high concentration of melanin in them. Sometimes regarded as "beauty marks" especially when found in women's cheeks, however, these are not always beautiful. Moles are graded as epidermal, junctional/mixed and intradermal nevi, depending upon their level of origin and depth.
Warts are small, round or oval, usually painless growths on the skin caused by a virus called human papillomavirus (HPV). These are usually seen on hands, feet, face, forehead and genital areas. They are generally harmless, however can be disfiguring and embarrassing, and occasionally they itch or hurt (particularly on the feet). Also warts have a tendency to spread locally and from one body part to another. One should not try removing a wart by cutting, tearing or picking.
Here, at AuraSkinInstitute, we offer you an effective treatment for both these skin troubles. We make sure that you go home with a healthy and clear skin devoid of moles and warts. Moles are treated in a single sitting with the use of radiofrequency, laser or shave excision methods depending upon their level of origin. And, warts are burnt and treated by the technique of radiofrequency ablation. Warts have tendency to recur and may require repeat sessions.
