Is this a mole? If not, what? (photos)

How may I get these removed? Or are there faster, easier methods of removal (cream, facial cleanser etc.)? Thanks

Yes, it is a mole or nevus. Regarding removal, there is no topical treatment. They can be surgically removed by shaving or cutting and stitching by a professional. However, your moles are benign in appearance and no treatment is necessary. If you do wish to have them removed for cosmetic purposes, I recommend you speak with your local dermatologist.
