Will the crater scar heal?

I recently had a mole removed by laser.  It was a small dark flat mole, more like a beauty mark.  However, as it healed, it left a crater type of scar.  It has been 2 weeks, will this crater heal over time?  Is there something I can use or do to help it heal?

Hi,

The crater that you describe is the space created by removal of the mole. This may decrease in size and intensity over time. However, it may be difficult to say if it would go away completely. Any scars or injury marks, do decrease over time, however, they may or may not acquire the appearance of a normal unhealed skin.

You may talk to the doctor who administered this laser for further information.

Hope this helped. Best regards
