Is it safe to use hydroquinone on the periphery of the site of a removed mole (via ablation)? Or AHA/BHA cleansers (chemical exfoliation)?

Hi Dr. G, would it be effective to resurface an area that has been treated with radio-frequency mole removal? To blend the normal scar in further with the surrounding skin? I have brown colored skin though...

thank you Dr. G for answering my question on Facetite. I will cross that off asap. If okay, I would like to ask a different question about what you think of Fractora procedure on the neck. thank you so very much!

Is there anything I can do to avoid or minimize scarring post-radiofrequency mole removal? I'm using silicone gel sheeting but the 'scar' is quite tiny and somewhat flat already. It simply appears as slightly shiny skin. Sometimes its indistinguishable.

Out of curiousity, is it possible that following ablation of any kind that the skin may appear shiny for months on end and is not necessarily scarring but taking awhile to return to normal?
