Dark Reddish Ring Around Nose Mole Removal
No, it should not be permanent. Depending on how long ago the removal was done, it is most likely still healing. I recommend patients apply sunscreen daily, as newer skin, like skin post removal, is incredibly susceptible to burning, but really, you should wear sunscreen every single day. If you don't like the look of the site after a few months of healing, return to the physician or consult with another physician about possibilities. Scar revision, filler, and even IPL, Photofacial flashes, or Cutera Laser Genesis are all possible procedures that can assist with any associated redness from a removal site.
