Can hair be removed from a mole?

So, if you see hair growing on a mole, you can remove it with different methods. Generally, electrolysis and laser hair removal methods are the most common and effective ways to remove hair on a mole. But if you have flat moles, then waxing or shaving may be good for removing hair on moles.

What happens if you laser over a mole?

If you use a laser over a mole, you could affect the cluster of pigment around the skin. This could force the mole to be lifted off your skin. The area would become hypersensitive to touch for more than one week. Consequently, you would experience irritation and itchiness around the area until the sensitivity reduces.


Now, you can see why I have continued to use laser hair removal to get rid of hair around moles. But again, I will advise you to be careful, especially if you are using a highly sensitive laser method to remove hair.
