Red bumps and cut marks after mole removal on face. (photos)

2 small moles were removed from my face 1 month ago by punch excision method. Now the area is very bright red and slightly raised. The one which is on jaw has developed a cut marks & is more raised. I am very disappointed with this. Will these go away on their own or I should seek some treatment? Does anyone know what I should do about it?

Consult Your Dr. About Aftercare--Mole Removal

I recommend following up with your Dr. about after care in order to prevent scarring. I also recommend silicone gel with growth factors. Any scarring can be improved with lasers and microneedling/prp. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
