Facial moles can be particularly troublesome simply because they are so visible and can be impossible to hide.
Where they are raised, they can be a problem with shaving and even more noticeable. Hairy moles are particularly difficult for both men and women.
- age – they can increase as we get older and/or become more prominent facial moles tend to be associated with:
- family history – if relatives were ‘moley’ then you are more likely to be too
- sun exposure – the UVA/UVB rays can also be a factor
Mole Removal on The Face
Although the NHS will not generally remove moles without a medical concern, private mole removal offers a solution.
Cosmedics’ doctors use laser mole removal and skin surgery techniques for minimal scarring. The procedure is quick and pain-free and often can be done on the same day as the appointment.
Facial Mole Removal Costs from Only £310 at Our Clinics
Call our friendly team today on 0207 386 0464 and see if this something that could help you too.
- Prices above are a guide to the costs and the exact price can only be determined once the doctor has examined the mole and advice given as to the best way of removal. Larger and more complex moles are likely to incur a higher fee.
- Doctor consultations are purely for the moles’ patients request to have assessed for removal and do not constitute a full body mole check. This is available as a separate service for a top-to-toe review of your skin and identification of any worrying lesions. Prices for treatments carried out in the same appointment as the consultation will include the £50 consultation fee (**note: ‘See and treat’ same-day procedures are only undertaken where the procedure is deemed appropriate to do so AND the patient understands the full extent of the costs, risks and potential side effects and is consenting to proceed on that knowledge)

Most facial moles can be removed using a laser or shave excision surgery, which requires no stitches.
Larger moles or certain flat or suspicious moles may be better treated using Ellipse Excision, a technique that requires stitches (dissolvable in most cases).
This costs from £450 plus £85 histology per mole (total £535). See Mole Removal for more Ellipse Excision prices
* Histology or mole testing – It is our policy that ALL mole specimens deemed appropriate are sent for testing for patient safety, good clinical practice and ultimate peace of mind.
This involves the mole that is removed is sent to another laboratory where it is examined by a doctor to ensure all the layers of the skin are normal. Very occasionally even moles that look fine after removal can be found to have abnormalities lower down. This microscopic histopathology testing is the only 100% guarantee the mole is normal.

Facial Mole Removal FAQ
Can I get it done on the NHS?
The NHS classes mole removal for cosmetic reasons as “non-essential” and therefore free treatment is very unlikely to be offered.
However, if you have a mole that is suspicious, we recommend you see a GP in the first instance. If the GP agrees it to be potentially cancerous, then they will refer you quickly for an expert assessment and rapid treatment.
Do you use a laser?
Our Doctors and Surgeons have a number of techniques available. Most facial moles are removed using a special medical laser or shave excision surgery. Both of these techniques require no stitches, which makes recovery very quick.
However, for very large or flat moles, we may recommend ellipse excision (with stitches).
Our Doctors and Surgeons are highly experienced and remove thousands of moles. They will advise the best treatment method after examination of your mole.
Do I need separate appointments for consultation and treatment?
Most of our clients opt to have the treatment and consultation together in just one appointment. We allow plenty of time for this and offer this unique ‘See & Treat’ service at all our clinics. We also deduct the consultation fee for ‘See & Treat’ clients, to reflect the convenience of having just one appointment.
However, there’s no obligation to go ahead unless and until you’re quite ready to do so. You’re welcome to arrange a separate appointment for treatment if you prefer.
Does mole removal hurt?
Facial mole removal is not painful, as we use a local anaesthetic first to numb the area. You’ll just feel a little sting as the injection goes in, but won’t feel the mole removal at all.
Will it leave a scar?
It is realistic to expect some kind of scarring after having a mole removed. However, this tends to be much less noticeable than the original mole itself. In addition, scars fade over a period of time and eventually most are barely noticeable.
How can I reduce scarring?
We recommend a silicon scar gel. Applied twice daily, this forms a protective barrier over the wound, allowing it to heal well and remain hydrated.
Kelo-Cote® scar gel is available in our clinics.
Can you treat more than one mole at once?
Yes, we very often remove 2 or more moles in one session and prices are cheaper for additional moles. If you have very many moles, then it may be better to split treatment over more than one session. Our Doctors and Surgeons will advise the best course of treatment during consultation, after examination of your moles.
Do I have to have histology/mole testing?
Our medical guidelines state that we should send ALL mole specimens for testing, even if they look completely normal. This is the only way to be sure; as moles may look ok on the surface but have abnormalities lower down.
The removed mole lesion/specimen goes to a separate laboratory and is examined under a microscope by an expert. This is an independent service. Results are returned very quickly for your peace of mind.
Can I send a photo?
Yes, we understand that it can be very helpful to get an idea of what to expect before you visit our clinic. You’re very welcome to email a selfie to email@example.com. We’ll ask one of our doctors or surgeons to take a look and give you their thoughts and advice. This is no substitute for a face to face consultation, but can be a really helpful place to start if you’re not sure.
Can you remove moles from the eyelid?
Usually yes. One of our surgeons Mr Michail Malandrakis is a consultant ophthalmic surgeon with a subspecialty in oculoplastics, so is very knowledgeable and experienced in treating lesions in the eye area.
You’re very welcome to email a photo of your mole to firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to get some advice prior to booking an appointment.
