Brief Answer:
Regarding mole removal.

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

There is no natural remedy or home remedy recommended for mole removal. Such remedies if used on the advice of friends, neighbours or relatives may only cause irritation, redness, scarring.

Moles are best removed by either CO2 laser or Radiofrequency cautery. Cost depends on the size and number of moles. It may vary between 1k to 2k per mole.

I suggest you to kindly visit a dermatologist in your region for the needful.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Brief Answer:
Regarding mole removal.

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

There is a risk of superficial scarring depending on the size and depth of mole. Recurrence is also possible if a part of a mole is felt over, usually if it's a deeper mole. However, the rate of these complications is much less with proven modalities like a laser and radiofrequency cautery in expert hands.

Hope I have answered your query.
