Nose moles can be improved with a variety of methods.

Moles on the nose are shaved flat if they are flesh colored and excised or shaved and electrodesicated with they are dark. Other things can be done to improve them as well and is very easy to undergo. Sincerely,

Mole Removal on Nose

Thank you for your question. If you have a mole, it should be cut out. Unfortunately, everytime you remove something the end result is a scar. If it is a sun doing peels or laser treatment to treat Melasma can make it worse. Depending on what skin type, there's a pre-treatment that I would recommend to minimize the chance of making it worse. or, it may lasered off without a scar. I would recommend consulting with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon or Dermatologist in your area for the safest and best treatment option. I hope this helps.

How to remove a mole on the nose

Moles on the nose can often be "shaved off" at a very superficial level just below the surface of the skin. This method is quite effective and leaves a minimal scar. The procedure typically takes less than a minute and is fairly painless. Dermatologic surgeons are experts at doing this procedure so please ignore advice such as that below from plastic surgeons suggesting you only see a plastic surgeon. I feel that it is never appropriate to use a laser as your primary treatment for removing a mole.
