You could first try your regular doctor. Often they can do these types of small procedures in their office. If you aren't sure, call them first. If they don't do those procedures, see a dermatologist. Again, if you want to make sure that the dermatologist that you have chosen will be able to do the procedures, you can call them first. Good luck!

See a dermatologist. They specialize in skin conditions.

Dermatologist will either use electricity or "freeze" the moles with nitrogen. They may also cut it out if it is a big one.

Just allow yourself some time to heal. Three years ago I had many small moles removed from my face (you know the small ones that old ladies seem to get - I'm only 38!), but it took about 2 months for my skin to completely heal. (first it "scabs", then the scabs fall off and the skin where the mole used to be is pinkish/white, no matter what color you are, I'm black).

The doctor told me they "might" come back, and sure enough, 3 years later I'm starting to see some again (but not as many).

Its' a quick method as results are immediate, but again you must give yourself time to heal (if you work, people will think you got stung by bees!).

Cost for me in the USA was $175.00 for all the tiny moles removed with a small electric needle (did not hurt at all).

With having them removed, and time to heal.. with the one mole being on my neck will the tanning beds interfere with the healing process?
