Removal of mole

Hello and thanks for your question.

I will be straight up forwards and say that there is no way of completely removing a mole without a scar.  You will always have a small scar and it will not be nice to begin with and then it will settle down and be less obvious.  It will be most obvious for a bout 6-8 weeks when it is red and quite obvious and then over the next few months it will settle down and be much less obvious and after about 18 months will a little hypo-pigmented in colour compared to your normal skin colour.  The face normally heals very well and is not an issue.  You will essentially be replacing a brown pigmented spot with a linear scar.
