Dysplastic moles

Surgical treatment of moles

A dysplastic mole (naevus) is an intermediary form between a regular naevus and melanoma. Such naevi may occur at any age and grow into melanoma in the course of time. They differ from benign neoplasms by some visible signs. Therefore, it is necessary to check the moles in accordance with the ABCDE rule which characterises the following manifestations of melanoma: asymmetry, border irregularity, colour variegation, diameter (> 6 mm), erythema and elevation. In case a mole matches 1 or more of these criteria, it is necessary to contact an oncologist or dermatologist.

Melanoma

Melanoma is the most aggressive and dangerous skin neoplasm formed of cells producing the dark pigment melanin.

The number of people affected by melanoma is growing rapidly all over the world. In Lithuania, 1,800 new skin cancer cases and 200 new melanoma cases are detected every year. Most likely, the main cause of this trend is the increased exposure to sources of natural and artificial light.

Besides, the risk to be affected by skin cancer or melanoma depends on the physical properties of the skin (light or freckled skin, light eyes, light or red hair), inheritance, and age. Melanoma ranks second among cancer types causing women’s mortality.

In most cases (in 90 per cent of all cases) melanoma develops on the skin; however, it can also occur on the retina, brain covers, mucosa, and in viscerals. Melanoma may appear both on plain skin or develop from a mole.

Melanoma spreads rapidly both on the skin surface and depthwards into the skin. Metastases occur in lymphoglandulas, on the skin, and in visceras.

Prevention – self-protection decreases the probability of melanoma and other malignant skin diseases significantly. Therefore, one should know that it is necessary to avoid active sun, to use high sun protection factors, and to observe skin regularly.

When should surgery be performed?

Changed (also called atypical or dysplastic) pigmental moles can be subject to surgical removal. Such moles must be constantly monitored (data about them is accumulated in an electronic visual database in order ensure evaluation of changes in dynamics) or should be removed surgically and undergo histological examination.

If the naevus is suspected to be atypical on the basis of dermatoscopical and siascopical investigation carried out by a dermatology oncologist, biopsy may be required for its histological examination.

The results of the examination will determine the scope of excision and selection of the surgery method. In case of timely detection of such a mole and surgery, melanoma will be prevented from reoccurring in the future.

Moles located in inconvenient places of the body such as near the ear, in the flank area, and in the knee bend can also be removed surgically.

It is very important to ensure that surgical removal of a pigmental mole would leave as little scars as possible and to make them less noticeable. This is determined not only by the method of removal of the mole, but also by its location (e.g. on the chest or back), performance technique as well as professional and thorough care of the wound.

Consultations on the out-patient wound care will be provided by the doctor that conducted the surgery.

I do not have skin-related problems because I take care of my skin and protect it. If you do not neglect it, then you will not have problems.

The skin becomes smooth and clear and the results are visible immediately!

I am not a frequent visitor of beauty and aesthetics clinics but I think carefully about where to go if the need arises.

Their qualified professionals and very pleasant atmosphere is why I always go to Era Esthetic clinic when any problems arise in relation to my body or skin.

Respectfully,

Viktorija Macijauskienė

Our faces are our voiceless business cards. Moreover, every woman seeks a healthy and flawless look of her skin. I’m no exception. In addition, my work requires me to take special care of my face – quite frequent use of decorative cosmetic products requires proper care of the skin.

Our faces are our voiceless business cards. Moreover, every woman seeks a healthy and flawless look of her skin. I’m no exception. In addition, my work requires me to take special care of my face – quite frequent use of decorative cosmetic products requires proper care of the skin. So, in order to achieve the results I wanted, I chose the HydraFacial treatment at ERA ESTHETIC clinic. I think you will be curious to learn more about the process as well as the effects that this treatment has. Basically, it is a patented non-invasive skin rejuvenation, deep cleansing and moisturising skin care done by modern aesthetic cosmetology technology – otherwise known as an ‘all-inclusive’ treatment. Today, Hydrafacial is included in the list of the most popular cosmetic treatments performed at prestigious medical clinics and spas all around the world. This procedure has three parts. Firstly, the skin is effectively cleansed; it gets exposed to a vacuum; it’s actively moisturised by different active serums. And all this is done simultaneously, which saves us time. Isn’t that great? The treatment was done by a great cosmetologist and beauty therapist, Alina Mockevičienė, and it lasted for about 45 minutes. You know, the face is quite a sensitive, I would even say intimate, part of our body, so it’s important to choose a specialist you trust; that way you can rest assured that you are in the hands of a professional. I would highly recommend Alina because in her chair I felt super safe and comfortable. I’ll tell you what kind of results I experienced after the first treatment: it restored the elasticity of my skin, as it had been looking rather tired lately. My skin was deep-cleansed. This means the reduced enlarged pores – and, believe me, with my job specifics I’m really not lacking them…The texture and tone of my skin have improved! Before the treatment, I had noticed that my face was somewhat greyish. Another good thing that will become even more important as time goes on is that this treatment slows down the ageing of the skin! And, although I am only 23 years old and the ageing process has not started yet (it usually starts at 25 years), preventive measures are always welcome and the sooner we start taking care of the skin, the more beneficial it will be for us. To tell the truth, if seeking maximum results this kind of treatment should be done once a month or as needed. I can confirm that the treatment did not cause any discomfort; in fact, it stimulated the skin in rather a pleasant way and was relaxing. As Alina would say, it is like being given a small kiss on your face by a kitten – somewhat scratchy, but at the same time very pleasant. I hope that the kitten will kiss you as well, leaving you glowing and even more beautiful!!!

I am very satisfied and would like to share my feelings about it with you. I found the clinic randomly while in search of a hair removal procedure using the most advanced laser technology. I discovered that Era Esthetic clinic is the only clinic in the Baltic states which uses the Alexandrito laser. This laser ensures very quick and effective results. I am very satisfied with the procedures and really recommend them to everybody. Over time and due to daily stress our skin loses its moisture, brightness and firmness, so I had a consultation with doctor Jurgita Stoškienė, who is qualified to the highest level, and who examined the skin very pleasantly and offered especially effective procedures. The results were obvious after the first procedure. The procedure I often have is HydraFacial, performed by Viktorija and Alina, who are masters of the process. I trust in them and give myself completely into their hands. I understand that regardless of what you are searching for,it is always best to come here, as only here can you find everything in one place – the best specialists, and the latest innovative technologies and hardware. All this is proven over time by the results and excellent service you will experience after going through the doors of the amazing clinic Era Esthetic.
