A lot of people have been wondering whether there is a best mole removal product that actually works for everyone? Many have spent countless hours finding the best mole removal option. Not only do consumers care to find an ultimate skin tag remover product, but they also want it to be affordable and save some money. To many, best mole removal is indeed the one you can do yourself at home with a help of some skin tag remover for moles and not only save some money but also save some nerves. In this article we will examine whether it is really safe to remove a mole at home and what are the best products to do this.

Why a mole may need to be removed?

Moles can be described as common skin growths. For the prevailing majority of people, the typical number of moles ranges from 10 to 40. Most moles are harmless and should not be a thing to worry about. However, if the mole is disturbing you in any way, you may want to consider the ways to remove it. Some of the common reasons for a mole removal are:

  • It affects the appearance
  • Unpleasant location (e.g. the mole is irritated from rubbing against your clothes)
  • Evolving moles (change in spot`s or mole`s color, size, or shape) that can be a sign of a serious skin cancer such as melanoma

How to know if the mole is cancerous?

One of the most common types of cancer is skin cancer. Spotting any warning signs of it quite early can make the skin cancer fairly easy to treat. Quite a few doctors and health care professionals recommend do a self- health-check-up as a part of monthly routine.

According to American Cancer Society, one of the most common ways to determine, if the mole is cancerous at home is to apply the A-B-C-D-E principle, where:

“A” stands for Asymmetry, meaning that the sides of the mole do not match.

“B” is for Border, meaning that birthmark`s or mole`s edges are characterized as either irregular, ragged, notched, or blurred.

“C” is for Color, where the color of the mole is not the same all over and is a combination of colors including brown or black, sometimes with patches of pink, red, white, or even blue.

“D” stands for Diameter, which normally should not exceed the size of pea.

“E” is for Evolving. In case you have noticed any changes of the spot, birthmark, or mole in the last couples of weeks or months.

 

Is it safe to remove the mole at home?

Before planning to remove the mole, spot, or a birthmark, please make an appointment with your dermatologist. Only doctors or health-care professionals can decide if the mole removal is recommended or not based on a checkup result. Never try to remove a mole at home using any kind of sharp tools, such as knives, scissors, or razor blades. However, some tools examined in this article may be considered an effective tool to remove a mole.

Is it safe to use mole removal cream?

Offering a fast, cheap, and surgery-free solution, mole removal creams are extremely popular these days. When applied topically and based on the manufacturer instructions, mole remover creams and skin tag products tend to be safe. However, if the instructions were not followed, mole removal creams can burn skin, leave a scar, or even lead to a skin infection. The majority of mole removal products instruct to scratch the surface of the mole before the cream is applied. We do not recommend damaging the mole at home prior to applying the cream, since it may lead to the negative side effects. Please contact your dermatologist, before deciding to remove a mole.

Even though the product is famous mostly for its ability to remove warts in literally no time (according to the manufacturer the specific formula freezes out and removes the wart in just one day), it is also known for being less aggressive on the skin, due to its composition. In order to provide a decent comparison between the products mentioned above, it is necessary to examine this product in detail. This skin tag remover cream solely consists of just one active component:

Active Ingredients

  • Salicylic Acid 17% (w/w) – the element that is known for being quickly absorbed into the skin, therefore causing a light form of the peeling effect for those skin cells, that contain the wart virus.

Apart from the active ingredients, Dr. Scholl’s Freeze Away Wart Remover also contains some inactive ingredients, such as: Castor Oil, Ethyl Lactate, Flexible Collodion, Polybutene (Contains Alcohol 18% v/v and Ether 53% v/v from Flexible Collodion).

One of the most important warnings to use the product according to the manufacturer is the following caution: the product cannot be applied on areas with thin skin such as the face, armpits, breasts, bottom, or genitals. Otherwise, it may cause burns and permanent scarring.

Being the last but not least alternative on the list, MictoTag Band is an advanced skin tag remover designed in a form of a rubber band, which is applied to the base of any small or medium skin tag. It is worthy of note that this tool is exclusively designed to remove any skin tags, but users have reported positive result in removing moles and warts. Therefore, in case you are unsure which kind of the skin tag you have on your skin, we recommend consulting with your doctor prior to removing the tag yourself. In comparison with Dr. Scholl’s Freeze Away cream, this band can be used on all sensitive skin areas, with the only exception being under eye area.

How to use:

  1. Push one of the bands onto the tip of the cone and roll towards the base
  2. Make sure TagBand is placed onto the cone to meet the band
  3. The hollow end of the cone has to be positioned on the skin tag on the same level with the surrounding skin
  4. TagBand needs to be pushed towards the skin and the cone has to be pulled away to release the band

If you are still not sure about the product, we recommend watching this video on Youtube:

  • 10x Micro TagBands

All of them fall under approximately the same price range and can typically be applied everywhere except places with thin and sensitive skin, such as genitals, breast and under eye area. Only some of the creams and tools mentioned above provide instant results, whereas the rest promise visible positive improvements in a couple of weeks to a month time.
