Angiofibroma on nose - scarring risk. (photos)

Recurrent fibrous papule of the nose tip
Hi there and thank you so much for your question!
Having looked at your pictures I would have also offered a tangential shave plus cautery of the root for this lesion; manual dermabrasion (dermasanding) is another option. Failing that then one is facing surgery which will leave a scar but with the size of the lesion that you have it should be reasonable and at least not stick out and be so noticeable. It does require a close up assessement in person to make a definitive decision; the problem with resurfacing or ablative lasers and also chemical peel is that there might be a risk of a depression or pock mark if the treatment was slightly over aggressive.
I hope that this information was helpful and my very best wishes for finding a good answer to your problem.
with kind regards
