2— Repeatedly hitting a mole is a form of whacking.
3— The same amount of energy in one big whack could be subdivided into a number of small whacks.

First attempted in 1958, that whack-a-mole system has become a standard first treatment for plantar warts, and is used to remove both moles and warts on various parts of the body.
Use Bing or Google and the search string ultrasonic wart removal and you will find dermatology uses the “whack-a-mole” system now. That repeated impact raises the temperature of the wart or mole more than it does the normal tissue around it, damaging and killing the targeted problem with virtually no side effects.
Dermatologists use the “Whack-A_Mole” treatment because it actually works.
