EXPERT Q&A

Q: What is the best treatment for facial mole removal?

What our experts say:

It is important to have the mole assessed by a dermatologist for safety. If the mole is changing or has been determined that it is pre-cancerous, it should be excised. If there is any question about irregularity, you should consult with a board certified dermatologist. If it is determined that the mole is completely benign, and the removal is strictly for cosmetic purposes, laser treatments can remove the pigment over time. Treatments with a Q-Switched laser, such as the AlexTriVantage, will break down the pigment over time.
