Laser mole removal?

Has anyone had it done?

I went yesterday and they zapped it. The mole is flat now, but there appears to be like a crater where the mole was... I had a raised one, with deep pigmentation. So they said id have to go back to get another treatment for all the pigment to be gone. Kindof worried the crater is still going to be there

$120. The place is pretty good, if not expensive. Mine was close to my lip, hence higher priced.

Got it done at Kitty's Beauty Studio just outside of chinatown. Apparently, the place is pretty famous, and have been in the business for over 20 years.

You guys should see a specialist instead of a beauty salon, my moms friend's daughter got it done, and if you go to beauty salon places, you usually end up with a crater where the mole was.

i'm sorta interested in getting one removed as well, but i'm not sure where to go, maybe i'll see if this place is good, are all the prices about ~$100?

Removing moles use to be free, u can get it done at your family doctor, now it costs $ gay

Almost 2 weeks after i got it removed, i still have a "scab" the size of the mole over the laser wound that has yet to fall off. But it seems to be healing nicely, Im not noticing any crater around the mole area like there was originally! woot!

i think it's cost per mole, depending on the size it is and difficulty to remove?

i went to a doctor about it before..they quoted me $150 each time, but they apparently it includes all the ones on the face not charged per mole/beauty mark

i am really interested in doing it also since i have a few larger ones on my face

yeah i heard its also better to go to doctors instead of beauty salons

i hope it doesn't hurt more than getting tattooed??

I used kitty's to remove one mole. It's day 14 and the mole has still not fallen off yet. The receptionist at kitty's said it should take 7-10 days only. How long did it for the scab to come off for you guys?

i just got one done by a specialist today. i asked them about equipment and they say the beauty salons' equipment are cheaper whereas the vancouver skin care centre costs half a million? they're probably biased but i got about 20-25 removed for $200. at first i thought it was $200 for 10 moles which is $20/mole but instead they removed all of them on my face(about 14). they also removed 3-4 at the neck and 2 that's really close to the neck but considered near the top chest. i asked him politely if he could remove the 3 on my arm and he did. so basically mine was ~$10-12/mole. right now i don't know if i should party at new years and get drunk but i'm leaning towards no.

i'm also curious in how long it takes for the scab to heal. I have to go back for another session but it costs another $200 for that session. in total it adds up to $400 which might not be worth it but i suppose doing it at a specialist is better than a beauty salon. that's my story.
