Treatment of biopsy scars from mole removal can be difficult. In my practice, I would begin with a combination of Selective IIT and Pulsed Dye Scar Laser.

The best treatment for hypertrophic scars is intralesional injection of Kenalog.  Pulsed dye laser and non-ablative fractional lasers can also be helpful.  You should see a dermatologist for treatment of these scars.
