Mole of just 1mm?
If you ask me personally, if the same thing was on my nose i would have left it undisturbed provided there is no increase in size. There are non surgical modalities like dermabrasion for removal, as any surgical procedure is bound to leave some scar.
My advise will be leave it alone,
Take care
