How does the treatment work?

K-laser is an amazing new technology in which a 445nm wavelength is utilised to remove the raised tissue back to the surface of the skin, without surgery. It takes very little time to perform the K-laser treatment.

What can I expect from K-laser treatment?

1 or 2 treatments are generally sufficient to remove the mole or lesion. Each mole usually only takes a minute or two to remove. There can be some discomfort, a stinging sensation. Local anaesthetic can be used if necessary.

Am I a suitable candidate for K-laser treatment?

Most benign moles and lesions can be treated, but you require a referral letter from your doctor or skin cancer specialist to show that your moles and lesions are benign, and are suitable to be removed using K-laser.⁣ A referral must be no older than 12 months (if your Dermal Clinician sees a spot of concern they may refer you for another assessment before agreeing to treat the lesion).

A combined initial consultation and treatment session will be booked with one of our Dermal Clinicians, which is allocated for an hour. There is a $100 initial consultation fee, but for clients referred from Dr Taylor or 360uv, our skin check clinic, the fee is waived. If your referral is from an external skin cancer clinic or your GP, the $100 fee applies.

Other options for clients who are not suitable for K-laser may include surgical excision, punch or shave biopsy. These can be discussed with your doctor, the 360uv clinic or Dr Taylor at The CAPS Clinic. Call (02) 6282 1177 for further information, as directed by your Dermal Clinician or GP.

Is there any post treatment care following K-laser?

Do not pick or disturb the scab. Post treatment a silicon gel, applied daily, can be used to improve healing and minimise the risk of scarring. Your Dermal Clinician will give you a leaflet on thorough post care instructions.

What can I expect regarding the results from K-laser?

Generally results are seen immediately, however often there is some redness of the skin that will fade within a few weeks.

Your clinician will review your result 4 weeks post treatment to determine if a second treatment in necessary.

What is the approximate price range for K-laser removal of moles?

Prices vary, approximately $150 to $350 per mole, with discounts applying for multiple lesions treated in one session.

Thank you - I could not be happier with the results, the entire experience and process was very easy and comfortable!
