  1. Cryotherapy – liquid nitrogen is used to frozen the mole and  the frozen mole is then lanced away. Further cut might have to be made depending on the mole’s infiltration of the skin.
  2. Excision – is suitable for a larger nevus where a surgical procedure is to be done under local anesthetic.
  3. Laser therapy – uses a mild intensity laser beam to burn the nevus off. After the treatment the area around the mole will become red or brown. and the skin will scab over as it heals for the next couple of weeks.This is probably the best treatment that you can undertake however it depends on the extent of the nevus under the skin. One caution is that once destroyed, the nevus can come back again therefore it is best done after the dermatologist or skin specialist decides the best course of action for you. Below is the video of how the mole is removed using laser removal technique. In this video you can see the surgeon was using a handheld laser tool to burn the nevus off.

Laser Mole Removal – Moles For Scars

By Mark W. Phillips

Moles are groups of cells that are darker colored than your skin. They are found on the skin: on the legs, arms, torso, face, everywhere skin is, a mole might be. Moles are flat or raised above the skin. They are friendly and they can be dangerous. Friendly or benign moles are no problem at all, unless you find them unsightly or you just don’t want to have moles because they get caught in clothes or while shaving.

Dangerous moles are those that turn into cancer cells and could result in melanoma. Melanoma is a cancer of the skin that is very deadly. These moles are a problem, don’t kid yourself. They need to be removed by a doctor. Read: do not try to use home remedies natural or otherwise if the mole is malignant. Consult your doctor. Then you can discuss options: laser mole removal for flat moles or surgical removal for all types of moles.

Laser mole removal is an expensive procedure, and although it leaves less scarring than surgical methods there are scars left nonetheless. Scars are the least of your concerns if you’re removing cancerous moles.

However, if you want to remove benign moles just for aesthetics or convenience, these methods are not for you. Why? Even if you have the money, do you really want to have the scars instead. And what about the pain; is it worth going through the pain just to get rid of that mole? Is it worth going back to the doctor’s office several times for just one treatment? The surgical method basically involves a doctor slicing through your skin to get the mole out. Sounds painful? It is. You might want to ask for an anesthetic. Then the doctor will stitch up your skin. The end result: mole-free scarred skin. You get pretty much the same result: mole-free scarred skin.

If your concerns are purely aesthetic, and you have realized that laser mole removal is not for you, do try the natural way of getting rid of moles. You can get rid of your benign moles the natural and scar-free way.
