Is this normal after my mole removal? (photos)

Mole Removal Concern
You are still in the process of healing. It may be that you are left with a small scar which can be improved with a combination of lasers, fillers, and microneedling/PRP. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
You are still healing in your postop photo. But in general, burning of moles is not preferred for two reasons.
1st)moles extend down through the full thickness skin, so this would require burning the full thickness skin in order to completely eradicate them, which could result in scarring; this should be avoided especially on the face.
2nd)burning the mole rather than shaving it off or cutting it out, prevents you from sending the mole to be evaluated for atypia/malignancy.
