I have been undergoing the process of getting a mole on my upper lip for several months now, i have had approximately 6 treatments via laser, the dermatologist says that if he goes any deeper, it may leave a scar, the mole has improved in appearance but not quite to the level i want it. my question is what would leave a more unsightly scar? excision, or laser removal? thank you in advance.
