Method and cost to remove a mole on the chin
I feel that it is never appropriate to use a laser as your primary treatment for removing a mole. Regardless of how "benign" a mole may appear, a biopsy may still reveal it to be atypical. Using a laser to "destroy" a mole will alter its look and make it more difficult to observe for precancerous changes in the future. Also, I don't believe a laser will even give the best cosmetic result.
