Three moles and hyperpigmentation, are there other options besides Halo? (photos)

Thanks for your question. I would not expect any laser treatment to make those raised skin lesions ("moles") go away. I think you'd be better off having them surgically removed. You'd be trading them for a small scar, but hopefully one that would be flat and easier to conceal. The laser treatments really are more for pigment, redness, and sun damage. Best wishes.
Halo for Moles
Thanks so much for your question. Halo is a wonderful treatment option for a number of things including hyperpigmentation, texture, pores and fine lines.
However, it is a fractionated laser, so it only treats a portion of the skin, allowing for faster healing and great overall results. It will not completely treat a raised lesion such as yours - for that, you need spot treatment with a fully ablative resurfacing laser. I often do both at the same time, so the recovery from flattening out the lesions (a scab for about a week), coincides with the recovery from the Halo.
