Unwanted hair can be frustrating and even more complicated when it grows on a mole. It poses an aesthetic concern, particularly if the mole is raised and has a rough surface. 

Traditional hair removal methods like waxing and shaving can lead to skin irritation and cause the mole to become more prominent. However, laser hair removal has emerged as a potential solution, offering a more effective and long-lasting approach to hair removal while minimising the risk of damaging the mole.

Moles are small, pigmented growths on the skin that are usually dark in colour. Most people have at least a few moles on their skin, which can appear anywhere on the body. Unwanted hair growth on moles is a common cosmetic concern. 

Let’s explore whether laser hair removal is safe on moles.

Laser hair removal may be a safer option for removing hair from moles, but it should only be performed by a trained professional and after consulting a dermatologist

Because moles are often darker than the surrounding skin and may contain melanin, the pigment that absorbs the laser light, when a laser is used to remove hair from a mole, it can cause damage to the melanin in the mole, leading to changes in its appearance.

Laser hair removal also can damage the cells within the mole and potentially lead to scarring, discolouration, and other complications. Additionally, if the mole is cancerous, the laser can cause the cancer cells to spread.

However, all these side effects can be eliminated when an experienced dermatologist assesses the mole and then  performs laser hair removal. Therefore, it is important to consult a dermatologist to examine the mole and determine whether it is safe to perform laser hair removal.
