I have 5-6 flat moles on my face which I'd like removed. Thoughts on best method?

I have 5-6 facial moles that are dark and flat. They've bothered me ever since I was young and I'm ready to have them removed. I'm very afraid of scarring on my face though. I've been researching and have read about lasers, shaving, excising, etc. What would be the best option for me?

The moles on your face can easily be electrodessicated with heat and removed without scarring.  Lasers would not be necessary or effective.  Please find a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience in mole removal with for the best results.
