Here are some common mole removal methods.
This type of procedure is performed on small moles that are well defined on the skin and have been deemed to be safe and non cancerous by medical personnel. The doctor will start the treatment by washing the area clean with alcohol or something similar to kill bacteria and then apply anesthesia, and then remove the skin tag and its base with a scalpel. After the blemish has been removed the resulting wound may be stitched with regular stitches, which require a return visit for removal, or simply bandaged if the base of the blemish is small enough. In some cases the doctor might use dissolving stitches which makes a return visit unnecessary. If there is reason to suspect that there might be malignancy, samples can be sent to a laboratory for evaluation. Since the procedure is relatively easy to perform it can be performed in small outpatient clinics and even by home calling doctors.
Biopsy can be compared to shaving. It simply cuts away the raised portion of the blemish, leaving the base intact. It can be beneficial since it heals easier and quicker than a base excision and requires no stitches at all. As in the methods above the doctor will clean and numb the mole before the procedure. It can leave some darker skin since the base of the mole is still remaining in your skin. Another use for “shaving" is to take samples for the lab since its a quick procedure.

This is method that is a little bit more pricey than the other methods, but is preferred due to the fact it runs a smaller risk of scarring or infection. It uses a laser to cut instead of scalpel, which means cleaner cuts.
Can be used if the mole is not showing signs of malignancy. There are various home treatments that suits different skin types.
