It is highly recommended to have a consult with a board certified Plastic Surgeon or Dermatologist to determine which method is best for you. Intradermal Naevi moles can be treated using C02 Lasers

Not all moles can be treated with laser

The best ones are intradermal naevi, however others such as compound, junctional etc... can be treated. Recurrence is frequent if pigment is present. 

See below for a video on CO2 and moles. 

All the best.
