As with noses, removing hairs from moles was frowned on unless you had the permission of a doctor. Given the propensity of bad work on skin, I could only well imagine that bad work on a mole could very well lead to a cancerous condition. Thermolysis and Laser, both have a tendency to irritate skin cells and the idea that a mole, thus activated, would suddenly turn cancerous, is NOT out of the question. I would never use Laser or Thermolysis on a mole.
But again (I must continually repeat this) galvanic electrolysis does NOT irritate the skin anywhere near as much as the other processes.
Sooooooo. I routinely treat moles AND, in 22 years, not a single case of even the slightest reaction !
And I learned some things as well. Hairs very seldom grow in the mole itself. They grow UNDER the mole and are substantially deeper than in normal skin. Often coarse and deep (maybe from plucking ?) these hair follicles can result in a slight raising of the mole itself. I have found on occasion that removal of the hairs can somewhat shrink the size of the mole. Sometimes, not. *sigh* Well, you get what you get, I guess, but at least the coarse wiry hairs are permanently gone and that is a good thing.
