Your dark spot should be evaluated by a physician prior to any removal or treatment. Depending on your skin type, you may be a candidate for laser removal. Long pulsed lasers such as the alexandrite GentleLaser or a q-switched laser such as used to remove tattoos can be helpful for removal of brown spots. Not all dark spots can or should be removed with laser and I recommend you see a laser physician with a lot of experience with these skin lesions.

Mole removal on the lips

Dark spots on the lips do not have to be removed unless the spots are suspicious or cosmetically unappealing. I would recommend an examination and mole removal.
