How can I get a small black mole on my face removed?

Dear Dr. Iriwn, I have small black mole on my face. Can you tell me how it can be removed please?

PLEASE, please, please see your dermatologist to make sure this isn’t a melanoma which is a deadly form of skin cancer if it’s caught late.  If diagnosed early, it’s completely curable.  If you don’t have access to a dermatologist, see your regular doctor or a plastic surgeon. Your doctor may want to do a small biopsy which would allow the mole to be removed and to have it read by a pathologist also. Here is more information on moles.  Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes!
