Moles, scars and skin lesion removals are gaining popularity in abroad medical facilities. Removal takes less than a few hours under local anesthesia with lasers, electrical current or electrodessication, and punch biopsy instrument. Healing is within a week to ten days, and twenty-four hour wound coverage is suggested. Topical medicines and over the counter drugs are typically prescribed, and the risks are minimal to none.
Mole or skin lesions associated with pre-cancerous or cancerous melanoma are covered by insurance. Insurance covers children who have mole, skin lesions or scars which are disfiguring, or detrimental to emotional and physical growth. Travelers seeking mole, scar or skin lesion removal in approved abroad medical facilities should check their traveler’s insurance coverage. Cosmetic surgery financing and cosmetic procedure loans can also be purchased.
