How can I remove a flat mole from my face except surgery and laser. Is there any cream which is cheap to buy except "Dermatend" because it's so costly?
Don't try it: Sorry. Surgery or laser are your options, or leave it alone. Your physician should see it in any case to be sure it's not melanoma or something else dangerous. The stuff you read on the internet (garlic, banana peels, strawberries, and of course apple cider vinegar, which supposedly cures everthing) is just silly, made-up stuff. ...Read more

Not usually: A mole is a collection of skin pigment cells that are usually dark but not always. The base of the mole extends the full depth of the skin so to completely remove it a minor surgery is usually necessary. In most cases the final scar is less visible than the mole itself. Simply shaving the mole off flush with the skin is not effective. Non-surgical treatments may fade a mole but not remove them. ...Read more

Before you remove anything, always rule out skin cancer first. ...Read more
