Over-the-counter mole treatments are a safer alternative to laser and freezing procedures, and can be obtained without a prescription. Rates for over-the-counter mole medications range from £6 to £45, depending on quality. Over-the-counter medications for mole removal work by burning the mole's skin layers and gradually exposing new skin tissue beneath the unwanted mole. Brand-name mole-removal medications such as DermaTend and NeviCurative contain natural, potent ingredients to eradicate moles.
DermaTend is regarded as one of the best mole-removal products on the market. Claiming a 98.7 per cent success rate, DermaTend offers a full refund of the purchase price £45.40 if you are not mole-free within 60 days. DermaTend contains the herb bloodroot, which is recorded to have benefited several conditions including nevus. DermaTend is applied topically on the mole and covered with an adhesive bandage. When the mole has flattened and scabbed over, discontinue covering the mole with an adhesive bandage. Allow the scab to fall off naturally. By not picking or disrupting the mole's scabbing process, you lessen the chance of developing scar tissue. Topical ointments like DermaTend tend to leave minimal scars, as opposed to laser surgery, which scars 80 per cent of its users.
NeviCurative is a natural topical ointment for mole elimination. Containing organic plant extracts, NeviCurative possesses antibacterial and antioxidant agents proven to reduce the amount of melanoma skin cells. Retailing for £16.70 for an 11ml bottle (2010), NeviCurative guarantees elimination of every type of mole without traces of scarring. Directly absorbed into the cell's membranes, NeviCurative's potent antimicrobial extracts work with the skin to remove existing nevi. NeviCurative can be used to treat moles on any part of the body and must be used as directed.
