Skintology MD Review – Removes Skin Tags or Hype?

By Tyler Cooper
HighYa Staff Published on: Feb 19, 2019

Skintology MD is a topical serum that is designed to provide a safe, effective solution to remove skin tags from the body in a matter of hours.

The product’s website describes it as using an all-natural formula that has been proven to eliminate skin tags, as well as prevent them from recurring.

The topical serum can be applied anywhere on the body where skin tags might form. The manufacturer claims that the application can take as little as 30 minutes to take effect. It is also mentioned that the product can be used for warts and moles, as well.

So, how exactly does Skintology MD actually work? Let’s take a look in the section below.

How Skintology MD Works

The makers of Skintology MD assert that the product uses “ancient techniques discarded by mainstream medical science” in order to eliminate skin tags.

They go on to say that the ingredients found within the product formula help to dry out moles and skin tags, reducing their appearance, and ideally, eliminating them altogether.

The formula itself is said to have been custom-designed by a team of dermatologists to eliminate these blemishes using a three-step process:

  1. Cut off hydration supply to the skin tag or mole. This is said to prevent additional growth.
  2. Dry out the affected area. This drying effect is what is responsible for the skin tag ultimately withering and falling off of the skin.
  3. Nourish and hydrate the area. Helps the healing process, protecting the skin and preventing new growths in the process.

This sounds promising, but before we can determine whether or not Skintology MD will actually work for you, we need to look at some basics. For instance, what are skin tags, and how are they formed in the first place?

Additionally, what are some of the conventional methods for treating and removing them? We’ll take a closer look at both of these questions next, before diving deeper into Skintology MD’s formula.

Skin Tags: What Causes Them?

Let’s start off with a bit of good news; though skin tags may be unsightly and annoying to some, in the vast majority of cases, they are completely benign.

According to WebMD, they cause virtually no symptoms and typically are either formed right on the surface of the skin or on short stalks that seem to “sprout” out from nearly any area on the body.

Skin tags are also quite common; approximately 25% of people develop them at some point in their lives, and this is increasingly common after the age of 50. They are also reported to be more prevalent in those living with diabetes, as well as those who are overweight.

Conventional Skin Tag Removal Methods

According to WebMD, there are several conventional methods for removing skin tags that are well-established, safe and effective.

These include physically cutting it off using a scalpel or scissors, freezing it off with cryosurgery, and electrosurgery (using an electrical current to burn it off).

Of course, each for these treatments requires that you pay a visit to a doctor or specialist, and for many, higher costs may be a compelling reason to look to a product like Skintology MD instead.

Skintology MD Formula Ingredients & Side Effects

According to one the manufacturer’s Skintology MD websites, the following ingredients are included in the product’s formula:

  • Mentha piperita (peppermint)
  • Melissa officinalis (lemon balm)
  • Jojoba seed oil
  • Melaleuca alternifolia (tea tree oil)

No information was provided as to the concentration of each of these ingredients found inside the serum. There is an option to view the full product label, but as of this writing, it seemed to be a non-functional link.

We reached out to customer service, who they told us they were unable to provide a full list of ingredients and concentration amounts at the time. That said, do any of these substances show clinical promise in terms of being effective at treating skin tags, moles, and other blemishes?

Based on information provided by WebMD, Examine.com, and Healthline, we found that none of these four ingredients had a significant, clinical link to removing skin tags or moles.

It is important to note that this doesn’t necessarily mean that the product won’t work for you; only that there isn’t sufficient evidence to conclusively prove that the ingredients found inside its formula are effective in clinical trials.

In fact, Healthline reports that many topical products can be effective for treating skin tags and that surgical treatments may be better suited as a backup plan if these treatments fail.

Additionally, none of the ingredients found in Skintology MD’s formula were reported by the sources above to have any severe side effects when used topically. Of course, as always, if you are concerned about any potential allergies you may have, it is always best to speak with a doctor before trying a new product for the first time.

Skintology MD Pricing & Return Policy

As of this writing, Skintology MD was only available via the manufacturer’s various product websites. It is packaged in three different quantities, and the pricing for each is as follows:

  • One bottle - $59.99 + free shipping
  • Two bottles - $99.98 + free shipping
  • Three bottles - $134.97 + free shipping

Regardless of which option you were interested in, each order is listed as including a 30-day money back guarantee. Digging into the fine print, we found refunds are handled on a “case-by-case” basis.

We reached out to customer service again to see if they could provide any clarity and they let us know that unopened products can be returned within 30 days for a full refund. Opened products, meanwhile, were only eligible for a “partial” refund, though the agent declined to state how much that might be.

If you were considering making a purchase, we feel this is important to keep in mind when considering which quantity to purchase.

The Bottom Line: Is Skintology MD Right For You?

Skintology MD promises to provide a quick, efficient and proven method for removing skin tags anywhere they may appear on your body. Can you count on the product to deliver these results?

Based on the information we’ve collected above from sources like WebMD, Healthline, and Examine.com, none of the ingredients found in the product’s formula are clinically proven to be effective for skin tag removal.

That said, Healthline did report that there are a number of over-the-counter solutions that are potentially effective, and Skintology MD could feasibly fall into this category. Ultimately, you may want to reach out to your dermatologist and get a recommendation before committing to any specific product.

If you’d prefer to simply give Skintology MD a shot and see how it goes, keep in mind that you’ll only be able to receive an unspecified “partial refund” if you determine it isn’t for you after using the serum.

We might recommend that those interested in trying the product purchase a single bottle initially. This way, you’ll have less money to lose if you determine that it isn’t the right solution for your skin tags in the end.

    This is a scam!

    • Atlanta, GA,

    This product is a total, absolute scam. You are signed up for a recurring monthly shipment. I went back to the order form, and I still do not see any opt-in for this, whatsoever.

    Second, the product is absolutely ineffective. I bought the skin tag remover. It did absolutely nothing. I wasn't even sure there was anything in the bottle.

    Save your money and a lot of hassle and stay away from the SCAM OPERATION! I am writing this as I cancel my credit card, and reverse the fraudulent charge they put on my credit card.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Product did not perform as advertised

    • Williamsburg, VA,
    • Mar 12, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    I purchased the skin tag/mole remover 30 days ago. The directions recommended using the product 2 to 3 times per day on clean, dry skin. I followed these directions and as of today, I still have the skin tags and they show no signs of change. I call the company on day 26 and they told me I had to use the product for 30 days before calling so I continued to use the product for the full 30 days and called back. I was then told that it had been 30 days and they could do nothing for me. I spent the next 20 minutes on the phone until a supervisor finally agreed to give me a 75% refund. I would not recommend this company to anyone. The product does not perform as advertised and customer service is very poor.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    No change

    I used the product as instructed for 4 weeks and there was no improvement. Then without contacting me they sent me another tube and I can't figure out how to cancel this product. This product is not at all effective, save your money and don't buy it.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    They added unwanted extra product and an unwanted monthly subscription.

    Beware! Make sure you read all the fine print and watch out for all the opt-outs/opt-ins that they use to sneak extra products and monthly subscriptions into your order. I've called 3 times in the last week to dispute an extra $45 product that I had specifically declined, but that they shipped and charged me for anyway. I still haven't seen any confirmation of a refund, but the rep today said he had unsubscribed me from automatic refills (which I had also declined), and that he had put the refund through. He did give me a cancellation confirmation number, so hopefully, it is in process.

    I ordered directly from the SkintologyMD.com site. I still can't believe they would be so deceitful as to add unwanted products.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
