Red Moles On My Face?

Red bumps are easily removed by electro-cautery without scarring.
Red bumps are usually cherry angiomas and are easily removed with a little zapping called electro-cautery which doesn't leave a scar and is quick to get done. Sincerely,
It is difficult to know whether or not this is a mole or something else that could be vascular without seeing you in person. I would advise that you see your physician to determine this first. If it is a vascular lesion, like a cherry angioma, there are other possible treatments for this.

A mole can be removed from all areas of the face. The eyelids generally respond well to excision and often have no apparent scar long term.
