Cosmetic Mole Removal Brisbane

Cosmetic mole removal is a common request by patients in our clinic.  These moles, or other lesions can be removed non surgically without the use of scalpel or stitches. 

Dr Wong removes cosmetic moles using his Ellman Surgitron (electrosurgical radiofrequency ablation), or using Fotona Erbium Laser technique.  

The procedure is performed using a small amount of local anaesthetics. The lesions removed are sent for histological confirmation. Following the procedure it is advisable to apply a wound healing gel (such as Solosite initially followed by a silicone wound gel later) regularly for at least 4 to 12 weeks, to promote formation of new skin. Full wound healing may take up to 6 to 12 months in some patients.  

All patients will require an initial consultation to confirm the diagnosis of skin lesions and discuss the procedure. Initial consultation applies. (Fees guide: Consultation fee applies. Cosmetic mole removal from $350** for the first facial cosmetic mole, $50 extra for the second cosmetic mole and so on.  There are no medicare rebates for cosmetic mole removal procedure or consultation, as it is considered a cosmetic procedure.)

Individual variation in results exists, depending on personal or family history of scarring, ethnicity, anatomical site, health status, post-operative wound care. Patient evaluation and explanation of risks is essential prior to procedure.n

**Cosmetic mole removal fee may be different in difficult anatomical locations. 

After the procedure, we strongly encourage all patients to attend follow up appointments as this will provide opportunities to identify any complications which may include wound infection, hypertrophic scar formation, which can be managed if identified using simple treatments such as antibiotics or cortisone injections.  It is our goal to achieve the best possible results for our patients.  Follow up consultations generally will not attract out of pocket fees.

The cost of post-procedure medications such as wound care medications, antibiotics, silicone gel or sheet, cortisone medications are not included in the procedural fees. 


Injectable collagen stimulation injections have been available since early 2000s.  

The information on this page for Bio-Stimulators will assist your understanding during your consultation with our doctor.  Due to TGA regulations, we cannot put before and after photos on our website.

Overtime we see too many patients' faces over-filled using temporary gel products. 

Temporary gels are water binding materials that occupy space in the tissues until the materials breakdown over 6-12 months.

Traditional wrinkles treatments, including temporary volumising gels do not improve the quality of the skin.  In fact after mid 20s, we lose about 1% of collagen per year from our face, causing our skin to be thinner as we age.  After menopause we lose even more collagen, up to 30% in the first 5 years of menopause, both in our skin and our bones.  

Collagen stimulators and bio-regenerative type products, on the other hand, has a bio-stimulatory effect, and most patients who use collagen bio-stimulators will notice an improvement in the quality of their skin initially, followed by a gradual increase in volume over a couple of months.  Results from collagen bio-stimulation injections may vary between individuals, but in general, results last longer than traditional temporary gel fillers.

There are a few types of collagen bio-stimulator in the Australian market and each have their unique benefits and disadvantages.  Our doctors will discuss the possible benefits of some of these bio-stimulators as well risks of these products during and post injections. 

It is also important to know how to incorporate bio-stimulators as part of your rejuvenation journey, when combined with other treatments such as Lasers, traditional cosmetic treatments and other energy based devices.  

You will need a thorough consultation, treatment planning and informed consent prior to collagen Biostimulator treatments. 

You may also need to have a few months interval between your previous treatments and collagen biostimulator treatments. 

Injectable Bio-stimulators are prescription only medicines in Australia and a doctor's consultation is essential.  

Main benefits:  

Improvements in volume occur gradually over a few months and provides natural looking result.  For some types of collagen stimulators, a few treatments may be required. 

Once your skin forms its own collagen, it takes longer for this collagen to breakdown.

Hence, results may last 12-24 months, longer than the average temporary gel products.  

For patients who have lost a lot of volume in their face and likely to require lots of temporary gel products, or patients who "burn" through their temporary gel quickly,  biostimulators may be an alternvative option in the long run.  This happens in women who have high metabolism or peri- and post-menopausal women. 

The aesthestic management of menopausal women is different to treating a women who is younger.  Women start to lose collagen with declining oestrogen levels, a whole decade before the onset of menopause, so replacing this collagen is sometimes more important than just filling the face. 

As collagen remodelling and collagen contraction occur overtime, most patients will also notice  "firmness" in the skin that is rarely achievable using traditional temporary gel products. 

Collagen Biostimulators are useful for reducing temporal hollowness, firming lateral high cheek, lateral jawline including pre-auricular region, jowls, neck and decolletage as well as hands. 


Higher upfront cost (when compared to traditional cosmetic injections) and for some biostimulators, a few treatments are required. 

Results are not immediate, as collagen production takes time, the improvements occur over a few months. 

Collagen Biostimulators are not suitable for lips and the thin skin around the eye (periorbital) region as there is a small risk of nodules.  Hence non biostimulatory treatments are required in these areas. 

Some patients with active autoimmune disorders may not be suitable for bio-stimulator injections.  A full medical history is essential to exclude contra-indications.

Other treatment risks are similar to traditional cosmetic injections includes pain, bruising, swelling, foreign body reaction, lumpiness, vascular occlusion and blindness.
