These days, I don’t buy much of anything until I’ve had a chance to research it first. I’m guessing you feel the same, which is why you’re online looking for Dermatend reviews.
The first thing I noticed about Dermatend is that it appears to be the most popular skin tag remover on the market. And while popularity alone is usually a good sign, I still wanted to know more about it.
Specifically, I was interested in finding out 3 things:
- Does it work? And if so, how long does it take?
- Is it safe?
- How much does it cost?
So here’s what I learned…
How Does Dermatend Work?
Dermatend is a natural skin cream made with distilled water, vegetable glycerine, butter of zinc and Sanguinaria Canadensis.
According to the manufacture, this blend of all natural ingredients safely and permanently dissolves skin tags.
The removal process begins by rubbing the entire growth with an emery board, which is included with your order. Then you wash and dry the area using soap, hot water and dry towel.
Next, you apply the product to your skin growth for 30-45 minutes before gently washing it off.
The Dermatend formula is said to trigger a response from the body’s white blood cells, which causes inflammation, followed by a scab. Once the scab forms, you leave it alone, thereby allowing the skin to heal and the scab to fall off on its own.
How Quickly Does Dermatend Work?
I mentioned before that Dermatend is one of the more popular removal products on the market, which is partly due to how quickly it starts working.
The product is available in two distinct formulas: Original Dermatend and Dermatend Ultra.
The Ultra formula promises results overnight (after a single application), while the original formula is said to take 1-3 days.
However, it’s important to note that the company’s website defines “results” as the amount of time it takes to form a scab.
In other words, you shouldn’t necessarily expect your skin growth to disappear completely overnight or even a few days later. Rather, the skin will obviously need time to heal, i.e. for the scab to fall off.
In total, the entire removal process is said to take anywhere from 10-21 days.
Lastly, the website also states that everyone’s body responds differently, so it’s important to follow the instructions carefully and continue to do so until your skin growth is gone.
Is It Safe?
In short, yes, Dermatend is safe for children and adults alike. Meaning, there is no evidence of any side effects associated with its use.
It’s also unlikely to result in any visible scarring. Now obviously the company can’t guarantee this given that they can’t predict how your body will heal.
However, scarring shouldn’t be an issue as long as you use the product as directed and more importantly, don’t pull off the scab before the skin has had a chance to heal completely.
Finally, Dermatend is safe to use on your face, although the company does recommend using it on another area of your body first, so you can familiarize yourself with the removal process.
Dermatend Customer Reviews
While no product is perfect, I must say, I’ve personally come across more positive feedback about Dermatend than any other skin tag remover on the market. I also want to point out that I’ve never used this product personally.
Below, you’ll find a sampling of real customer reviews that I found online, including a few videos from Youtube:
- Alicia W.
“Skeptic here…LOVE product”
- Sandra S.
“So Far, So Good!”
“Shocked and amazed—awesome product!!!”
“Product worked better than expected for me”
- A. Hoyos
“I was a skeptic, it won me over”
“It Really Works As Advertised – But Be Patient”
- Nancy D.
Is Dermatend Right For You?
No product is right for everyone, including Dermatend. If you’re having trouble deciding if it’s right for you, here are some of the pros and cons as I see them:
- It’s much cheaper than a medical removal procedure.
- When used as directed, your chances of developing a scar are much less likely when compared to a procedure like surgical excision.
- Other than a slight stinging sensation, which lasts only 5-10 minutes, the removal process is painless. Conversely, many medical procedures can be somewhat painful.
- The company ships worldwide and uses discrete, plain packaging.
- There’s a 60-Day—no questions asked—guarantee. So if it doesn’t work after two months, you can send it back for a refund.
- The removal process does take longer than a medical removal procedure, as these procedures can often remove skin growths in a single session.
- There’s a risk of infection (but the same is true with a medical procedure). In either case, you can reduce the chance of infection by using antiseptic ointment and generally keeping the area clean.
- As with similar home removal products or remedies, it’s not advisable for use around the eyes or other mucous membranes.
How Much Does it Cost?
At the time of this writing, Dermatend is available in three pricing options:
The small bottle of Dermatend Original is $39.95 (30% off retail price). It’s approximately .17 ounces, which is enough to remove up to 4 blemishes. Again, the original formula works in 1-3 days.
The bottle of Extra Strength Dermatend Ultra is $69.95 (40% off retail price). It’s approximately .34 ounces, which is enough to remove up to 15 blemishes. Again, the ultra formula works after one application.
Lastly, there’s a special for two bottles of Extra Strength Ultra for $99.95 (50% off retail price). This amount is enough to remove up to 30 blemishes.
Orders of the Extra Strength Ultra formula also come with a free bottle of the company’s Quick Healing Balm. The balm is said to reduce the risk of scarring, while speeding up healing time.
Finally, all purchases come with a 60-day guarantee. So if the product hasn’t lived up to your expectations, then you can simply get your money back.
Where to Buy Dermatend
If you’re looking for Dermatend in stores, you may have trouble finding it.
The product is primarily sold online via the company’s official website and other online retailers. But just so you know, the discounted prices I quoted above came from the company’s website.
