Time to focus on you

While moles, cysts, skin tags and lesions are common skin conditions, they can be irritating and uncomfortable. Thanks to the latest techniques, they can be effectively removed from the face and body to restore the comfort and appearance of your skin.

If you’re concerned or even embarrassed about a mole, cyst, wart, lesion or skin tag, removal may be an option which allows you to feel more confident. Almost all common lesions are benign, but if you have a mole, cyst, skin tag or lesion that we suspect may not be, we won’t remove it and instead will refer you to your doctor. 

We’re all a work in progress

Having the moles and/or cysts removed from your face, neck or chest may help you feel happier with your appearance if it’s something you’ve felt self-conscious about for a while. You might find skin tags and cysts uncomfortable, and they may feel more obvious when wearing tight fitting clothing, or rupture when you’re out in public. Having them removed will help give you additional peace of mind.

The procedure only takes around 15-30 minutes, depending on how many moles or cysts need removed, and because of the use of either a local or topical anaesthetic is virtually pain-free

Let’s delve into the detail

As with all medical aesthetic treatments, it’s important to weigh up the risks and complications involved against the benefits that the treatment can bring. Your medical aesthetic practitioner will talk you through any risks.

While mole or cyst removal rarely carries a risk, these can occasionally include bleeding or infection. 

Ready to believe in the best you?

Moles and cysts are relatively common. While theyre usually harmless, you may feel that by having clearer skin you’ll feel happier about your appearance. Your mole or cyst might be causing you discomfort, or you may have noticed a change in its shape and size, and you’ve decided it’s time to have it removed. It may also be bothering you if it’s particularly large or positioned in a prominent place.

Mole & Cyst removal FAQs

More FAQs
How much does mole or cyst removal cost?

The cost of your mole or cyst removal treatment will depend on the number of growths that need removed. Our surgeon assistant will give you a detailed breakdown of the cost involved. 

How long does mole/cyst removal take?
The procedure can take around 30 minutes, depending on the number of moles and/or cysts which are being removed. A topical anaesthetic will be applied 5-10 minutes prior to treatment.
Is the treatment painful?
You won’t feel any pain during the treatment because of the topical anaesthetic which will be applied to the area. It may feel slightly sore afterwards when this has worn off, but any mild pain after the procedure can be treated with over the counter painkillers.
Will mole or cyst removal leave a scar?
While scarring is minimal from the techniques used in the procedure, you may have a small, faint scar that will fade in time.
Are there any after effects or side effects?
While it is very rare to experience side effects with mole and cyst removal, there is a risk of infection, bleeding and scarring. Our highly experienced clinicians will talk you through the risks involved before you decide whether you wish to go ahead with the procedure.
Which skin conditions do you treat?
We offer treatment for: Moles brown or black growths on the skin. Cysts sacs filled with fluid or semi-fluid material. Skin tags small protruding pieces of skin that can grow in the groin area, armpits, neck and eyelids. Skin lesions surface growths or patches of the skin that don't resemble the skin around it. Lentigines small dark spots on the skin that can be a genetic condition caused by excessive radiation or sun exposure.
Who will perform the skin tag, cyst or mole removal procedure?
This procedure is commonly performed by our resident dermatologist who will remove the mole, cyst, skin tag or lesion and send it for analysis to ensure there are no abnormal cells. Our experienced doctors will then complete the cyst or mole removal procedure by inserting small stitches.
Is any cyst or mole removal aftercare required?
You’ll be able to leave the clinic as soon as your treatment has been completed, and you should be fine to go about your normal day-to-day activities. You’ll need to keep the wound dry for two days and you’ll be advised to return to the clinic to have your stitches removed 7-10 days post-treatment. During your consultation, your patient advisor will be able to speak with you in detail about mole, ganglion or sebaceous cyst removal aftercare and what you should or shouldn’t do following the procedure. With all cyst and cosmetic mole removals, aftercare is of the utmost importance to us and you’ll be able to contact our 24/7 helpline if you have any questions or concerns.
Can I spread the cost of removing my skin tags, mole or cyst?
Absolutely. We understand that there’s a lot to consider when getting treatment, including how much your mole, skin tag or sebaceous cyst removal will cost. That’s why we offer a range of different payment plans which your advisor can discuss with you during your consultation. In addition to paying outright, we offer a choice of two finance options which allow you to spread the cyst or mole removal cost. Our interest-free plan enables you to pay a minimum deposit of just £500 and then the remaining amount over 12 monthly installments at 0%. We also offer finance plans that allow you to spread the mole, cyst or skin tag removal cost over 12, 24 or 36 months at 16.9% APR. All our finance options are subject to individual status and you must meet the eligibility criteria. To find out more, head to our finance page. Our finance plans are provided by Omni Capital Retail Finance Ltd who are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.
Can you remove moles?
Yes, we offer a wide range of treatments for different skin conditions, including moles. Our professional team know exactly how to remove moles safely and effectively through surgical excision. We have a huge amount of experience in performing private mole removals in our CQC-registered clinics across the UK. We can also help with cysts, skin lesions (surface growths or patches of the skin that don’t resemble the skin around it), as well as lentigines (small dark spots on the skin that can be a genetic condition caused by excessive radiation or sun exposure). If you’re interested in any of these treatments, don’t hesitate to get in touch and we’ll be happy to help.
Can you remove a cyst?
Absolutely. Our team of experts can remove a cyst safely by surgical excision. Skin cysts are usually round in shape and can vary in size from a few mm to several cm in width. There are various types of cyst, including epidermoid, pilar and sebaceous cysts and they can appear in many different areas on the body. Here at Transform, we can offer a range of treatments including sebaceous cyst removal, ingrown hair cyst removal, and ganglion cyst removal in our 22 specialist clinics across the UK. Our professional practitioners will examine your cyst before proceeding with removal and will refer you to your GP if they think you need any other form of treatment. Get in touch with our friendly team for more information about private cyst removal surgery.
Can you remove skin tags?
Yes, our practitioners can remove skin tags from areas such as the groin, armpits, neck and eyelids. Skin tags are small protruding pieces of skin that are typically smooth and similar in colour to the rest of your skin. They can vary in size, from small growths of several mm to large growths several cm wide. While they are common, painless and not dangerous, you may benefit from private skin tag removal surgery if you feel concerned or uncomfortable with the growths. We offer skin tag removal across our UK clinics, all of which are registered with the Care Quality Commission and provide the highest standards of care. Get in touch with us today and we can chat about how to remove your skin tags with no obligation whatsoever.
How do you remove a cyst, skin tag or mole?
When you book your treatment with Transform, you can be sure that our team of qualified professionals know exactly how to remove skin tags, moles and cysts safely and efficiently. Before commencing any treatment, your consultant will examine the area carefully to ensure removal will be right for you. We do not offer laser mole removal – instead, your mole, cyst or skin tag removal will take place by surgical excision at one of our UK clinics. Firstly, a local anaesthetic will be applied to the area 5-10 minutes before the procedure begins. Then, the surgeon will carefully cut around the mole, cyst or skin tag with a scalpel to remove it. Once the removal is complete, the wound will be closed with stitches and a dressing applied to cover the area.

Next steps

We're ready when you are

Your first appointment

The initial step will be to meet your friendly and knowledgeable surgeon assistant. You’ll be able to talk to them about why you’re considering mole or cyst removal, whether it’s right for you, the likely cost and finance options, and when you’d like to have the treatment. If you feel ready, we’ll then book you in for your free consultation with one of our medical aesthetic practitioners.

Your treatment consultation

At your free consultation, your professional practitioner or nurse will ask you about the results you want to achieve. They’ll guide you through your mole or cyst removal options to ensure you get the best results. You can discuss every aspect of your treatment with no obligation to go ahead. Our medical aesthetic practitioners and nurses are extremely knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions you have. If you feel ready to proceed, we can book your treatment in for a date and time that suits you.

The treatment

On the day of your treatment you’ll have time to ask any last-minute questions before the procedure begins. Your expert dermatologist will begin by applying a topical anaesthetic cream to the mole or cyst and its surrounding area, 5-10 minutes prior to the procedure. An incision will then be made around the growth to remove it. This will be sent for analysis to check there are no abnormal cells. One of our doctors will then stitch the wound and apply a temporary dressing.


You’ll be able to leave the clinic as soon as your mole or cyst removal treatment has been completed and you should be able to return to normal activities straight away. It may feel slightly sore once the topical anaesthetic has worn off, but this can be treated with over the counter painkillers if necessary.


High quality aftercare is at the heart of what we do, so we’re here to support you. If you have any questions or concerns at all, you can contact our 24/7 helpline. You’ll need to keep the wound dry for 2 days and you’ll be required to come back to the clinic within 7-10 days to have your stitches removed, unless you have dissolvable stitches.
