Treatment of Moles: The most important thing in mole removal is proper diagnosis. Assuming you do not have a suspicious looking mole(that is one in which the doctor suspects that it may be changing into a skin cancer) many moles are shaved off, resulting in little trace that it was once there. Sometimes they may come back. Especially if hair is growing out of it. If the mole is suspicious it should be excised.

Pimples under a mole: Pimples could occur anywhere on the skin, though more acne prone skin generally is more oily skin.
