If the moles are superficial, they are suitable for LASER therapy. After LASER application, no visible scars result, yet pigmentary changes are sometimes inevitable.
If the moles extend into the deep dermis or the subcutaneous tissue, it may be necessary to excise them. With careful suturing, the scars are often nearly inconspicuous. If there is any doubt about the malignant potential of the moles, the excised tissue must be examined under a microscope.
