Remove Moles with Skin Tag Removers
There are many different ways to remove skin tags whether at home or by doctors.
- Removal tools.
- Freezing the skin tag.
- Cutting it out.
- Drying the skin tag out using electrodes.
- Creams that can be purchased from most drug stores.
Some moles appear to be flat, which would require more extensive methods to remove than a skin tag.
Some doctors will even perform minor surgery to completely remove moles from the skin.
Using Ointments to Remove Moles
Some creams and ointments for skin tags are also recommended for use on moles as well. However, check that they are actually intended for that use as some creams are specially formulated for skin tags alone.
Regrowth of Moles
If not removed and treated correctly, moles can sometimes grow more rooted in the skin. This will require further treatment or removal because if the cells are not entirely removed, the mole will return later by regrowing the cells on the outside of the skin.
Regrowth of those cells can sometimes form abnormal cells causing the mole to no longer be benign. If you want or need to remove a mole, it must be completely removed to prevent complications in the future.
Effectiveness of Creams and Lotions
There is proof that these creams effectively remove skin tags or moles. However, some of these creams and ointments can cause significant skin damage. They have even been linked to the development of Melanoma, a life-threatening form of skin cancer.
This can be avoided by using a removal tool approved by the FDA or by visiting a dermatologist to get the skin tag or mole looked at and removed.
Other Skin Tag Tools
Many skin tag removal tools have settings for moles as well. While they are not removed in precisely the same way, the process is very similar. Some devices will not work on both skin tags and moles.
For example, the Skin Tag Remover Device by Claritag is specific to skin tags and is not recommended for the removal of moles.
On the other hand, the Spot Blaster Pro was made to remove both skin tags and moles.
Visit A Doctor
While skin tags are harmless and moles are generally safe, it is always in the best interest of someone to visit a doctor when a new mole is found on the skin, even if it is just to be on the safe side.
Different shapes and colors of moles can help a doctor identify melanoma and other skin diseases. However, if the mole is removed and the person has not seen a doctor regarding the moles, the doctor has less chance of catching certain life-threatening diseases promptly.
Typically, moles are not harmful early in life and don’t usually mean that the person has cancer. Older people are much more likely to have a cancerous mole.
