Skintology MD Review – Removes Skin Tags or Hype?

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.

  • Does not work for me

    • Ferndale, CA,

    Bought three tubes of Skintology because they were the "Best Value". Did absolutely nothing for my moles. Time got away from me so I could not return them for my money-back guarantee because I was over the 30 days. I would buy only one tube until you see if it works for you. Why waste the money on a super deal if it doesn't work? In case you don't read all of the legal fine print, you are also signing up for automatic monthly delivery as well. If it had worked as advertised, why would you need four tubes of this product? On the last tube that showed up they offered 25% off to not have to bother sending it back and then when I balked, they offered 50% off the $49 tube to be done with it. I am into this product just under $200 and my refund is $25.00. I am over 60 years old and have never written a negative review about any experience or product before but I feel this situation deserves a comment.

    I originally ordered what I thought was a product that might work. It doesn't, and when I called them, after having received a fourth product, was that my order was a subscription. And what that means is I get once a month a tiny tube of some kind of liquid that simply does not work. And each month I get a bill for about $45. I called the listed telephone number (844-200-0458) several times and left voice messages, no response. Finally, I got to speak to a living person who kept giving me a sale pitch. I finally got the individual to accept my cancellation and I want to WARN others that this is probably mail fraud as the product DOES NOT live up to their claims and NOWHERE could I find that I was subscribing to a monthly product at an outrageous price!

    My husband has been using this for a month every day religiously and to his dismay, it does not work. Today, after checking my bank account I found out that they have debited my account for another month supply. Getting ready to call them. What a scam!

    Just received my first-month subscription. I was unaware at the time of the original purchase that I was signing up for a monthly subscription. I'm a pretty savvy online buyer, but this company is very good at hiding their deceptive practices. Called my credit card company and they called Skintology MD while I was on the line. At first, they offered to refund only 75%, but the agent insisted on 100%. They refunded the charge and canceled the subscription. Thanks Capital One!

    The product does not work. The product is very expensive and you get a very tiny amount in the skinny tube. I have been using it for two weeks and it does not work. Do not waste your money.

    As with all of these complaints, mine is a common refrain...I ordered a one-time (or so I requested) shipment for this product for $59.99 in February for my wife's skin tags. In March 2019, I unexpectedly received a second shipment of their product and a charge was reflected in my bank account for $49.99. I immediately tried to contact the company but got their voicemail and left a detailed message. I also sent a letter through certified mail requesting that they cease any future shipments and refund my money. I heard nothing from them and this April noticed another $49.99 charge to my bank account, but no product was received. Just filed a BBB report, but I'm not holding my breath!

    Total scam - do not buy!

    As other reviewers have stated, this company operates unethically and dishonesty. They advertise a "100% money back guarantee" that is "risk-free," but once the product has been opened, you can forget about that. The product does not work and once you order you are automatically signed up for their auto-replenishment program (which you do not have to agree to, by the way). I have tried multiple times to get my money back and to get off auto-replenishment but the only way to stop being charged $50 per month was to cancel my credit card. Their customer service is terrible, their product ineffective, their claims are false advertising, and their practices are unscrupulous. Stay away from this company.

    It's very hard to find real reviews of this product online. Skintology MD has littered the internet with fake reviews. Thankfully I found HighYa so I may be able to help others with an honest review.

    As each of the other reviewers on this product state, the same holds true for me. The persons behind Skintology MD have deceived and lied. The product absolutely does not work as advertised. There is only a minuscule amount of product in the container. When ordering for the first time (which by the way will be the only time you order this product), Skintology MD will unbeknown to you automatically set up recurring monthly billing of your credit card. Charging back and requesting a new credit card is the only way to stop this scam! Promoters of Skintology MD need to be held accountable for their illegal actions.

    Three months ago I ordered a sample pack for $50. When I got it I realized they sent me a three month supply, instead of paying $50. I paid $150 for a product I didn’t even know worked. Every month after that they have sent me a fresh bottle That I did not order nor did I want. But they have my credit card information, so they just keep charging it to the credit card now. I’m into the product $250 and the product doesn’t even seem to work. Don’t waste your time or your money on this company.

    I ordered this item hoping it would work with small moles and skin tags. I used it for three weeks straight and saw absolutely no difference. And then they had the nerve to continue to send it to me. Not worth your time or money. I only rated it because it makes you.
