Removal of facial mole
If you decide to move forward with removal of the mole, I would recommend a punch biopsy. With this technique the skin is numbed with lidocaine, the mole is removed with a small cookie-cutter like device, and the wound is closed with sutures that are removed in 5-7 days. It would be best to avoid the sun and wear sunscreen to prevent the scar from being pigmented. The area will be pink for about 4 months and slowly fade to a more natural skin color. I wish you the best!
