Moles on face

Hello.My face has got lot of flat moles some of them are in light brown colour and some in black.I really don't like.Have heard of mole removal treatment but unfortunately the response of these treatment are not favouring the customer.They were very disappointed as the mark and scare is left behind or it tend to leave some other sort of mark and skin colour is not same as the earlier after the treatment. What other way is there to get rid of the flat moles without any regret and marks and pain and side effects.

There are a variety of conditions such as you described. The commonest one is freckles. Freckles are seen in relatively fair skinned people who have a family history of freckles. They become more in number and darker when you are exposed to sunlight. If not then you may be having some other condition. First the kind of "flat mole" has to be diagnosed. If it is indeed a mole then lasers are only a temporary solution as it may grow back. Freckles can be treated with q switched NdYAG laser, moles are removed by either a CO2 laser or a surgery. You need to take precautions like avoiding sunlight completely for the first 5 days after the procedure. The spots you have got after laser removal are temporary and will vanish with depigmenting creams. I ask my patients who have undergone laser to show me after a week to assess if they have developed pigmentation after laser, as it is common in Indian skin. If they have developed pigmentation or are likely to develop pigmentation starting depigmenting creams immediately resolves their problem in about 1 week to 10 days. Please get these procedures done only from a dermatologist who is trained in lasers. A good doctor knows how to manage any problems which arise out of these procedures. It is common to see many beauty spas and salons offering these treatments by technicians who will wash their hands off if there is a problem. Warm regards. Dr. Rajdeep Mysore.
