Anyone know how much clinics charge per wart or mole without using insurance?
Looking for a rough estimate

Sorry I can't answer but I'd love to know too. I went to the clinic one time with a wart and I expected to get it frozen off with liquid nitrogen. The doctor prescribed some oral medicine; I was surprised and curious. I asked the pharmacist what the medicine was and it was antibiotics (warts are from virus). Needless to say it was a waste of antibiotics and time.
Anyway, do Korean clinics even do wart removal? Do they use liquid nitrogen or laser?
I had two warts lasered off in Thailand for about $70. Laser is the way to go, except you can't get the wound wet for a week.

I had the laser treatment with Dr. Teng Teng. (I think that that's his name. You can find his adverts pasted all over facebook.) Going the frozen route can leave small scars, but laser is perfect. I recommend that way if you're in the Seoul area. But, sorry, don't know about prices.

FWIW, I recently had minor surgery on a skin related issue - 80K Won with national health insurance. I doubt it would be more than that.

Also, a place I just ran across is:

I didn't get the procedure there but it certainly looked professional.

Depends on the size of the warts. I had one removed for 10,000 and a larger one removed for 30,000. (This was a decade ago, so prices might have gone up)

There are also home remedies for removing them such as using apple cider vinegar and also garlic and wrapping your hand there after you put the garlic and vinegar there overnight. It should work.
