Moles are harmless and don’t require any treatment. However, they can be unsightly and embarrassing. Particularly, if the mole is located on an area of the body that is visible to others—such as on the face—then getting them removed is the best option.
If you too are struggling with a mole and wish to get it removed, there are a number of options available for you to choose from. They range from simple home remedies to more complex surgical procedures. Here, we have enlisted all of them so that you can choose the best one for you.

Use Natural Remedies
Most people try to deal with their moles by using natural home remedies. Products like honey, garlic and apple cider vinegar are popular among people who wish to get their moles removed at the convenience of their homes. These products are applied directly to the mole, causing the mole to dry and come off on its own.
It is a very slow process and can take weeks for the results to become noticeable. In most cases, natural remedies don’t work at all so it can be a waste of your time and energy.
Try Mole Removal Creams
Mole removal creams are yet another effective means of getting rid of moles at the convenience of your home. They are less expensive as compared to other treatments and more useful than natural remedies, These creams are available in abundance at drug stores and can be easily purchased for a few dollars.
These creams usually work by lightening the mole until it vanishes completely. However, you will have to wait for a couple of weeks before you can see the final results.
Go for Surgical Treatments
Surgical removal of a mole is usually the best way to get rid of it once and for all. There are a number of available techniques that you can choose. But the decision of which technique to be opted should be left to a certified medical practitioner. Visit a surgeon who specializes in mole removal and he’ll will suggest you the most suitable technique for you. Usually, he’ll suggest one of the following methods.
- Excision – This is a surgical procedure that involves a surgeon using a scalpel to cut the mole out entirely. Some bordering good skin is also removed in the procedure and then the physician cauterizes or uses stitches to close the wound back. This is usually done for larger moles and results in an instant removal of the mole.
- Cryotherapy (Freezing) – This is a very quick treatment during which a medical professional applies a special solution (usually argon gas or liquid nitrogen) onto the mole, either through a spray device, injection or a cotton swab. This causes ice crystals to form within the mole, breaking up the mole tissue cells and causing no damage to the surrounding skin cells. The mole usually vanishes, leaving behind no trail of scarring.
- Laser Treatment – A mole that is flat and black or brown in color can be most effectively removed through a laser treatment. The procedure involves applying a local anesthetic to the area where the mole is found and then using laser beams to remove the mole tissues. Usually, two to three treatment sessions are needed to get rid of the mole completely. However, this treatment isn’t appropriate for moles that are very large or protrude above the skin.
