Hi.

I've been trying lots of different things to get rid of a mole. Right now i'm using a product "for warts" with 16% salicidic acid in it. It seems to be working it has burn't away some of my skin, but i want to know when should i stop. I mean like when do i know that the mole is fully gonne away. There is some colour, like a redish, but no black or brown.
Help??

I would be afraid that it was going to leave a scar. Have you thought about going to see a derm? It would be a simple and quick procedure.

I'd heard it was dangerous to remove them that way and that you should see a dr to get one removed... Is this correct?

Yes, I think it is dangerous. Moles are mutated cells, I believe, so altering them more is increasing the chance of that skin to become cancerous Shock ...That is what I heard, but I am not a DR...

PLEASE STOP trying to chemically burn you moles off! You should be seeing a doctor. As a matter of fact, everyone should get a once yearly mole check (which is painless but highly embarrassing Embarassed)
Moles should not be self treated. It is very easy for a derm to "punch" the mole out. It should not leave a scar. They usually biopsy it. If it is clear, great. If it is not, additional treatment may be necessary. Please see your derm. joani

Hi

Good idea to see your doctor.

But if you already know it's not a dangerous mole you can get rid of them using very strong copper peptides combined with exfoliation such as salycic acid. I did this with some skin tags on my neck a while ago. And I'm using Supercop x 2 on a skin tag on my back right now. My doctor says the tag is benign/normal so I'm just getting rid of it for cosmetic purposes. Apparantly the CPs are a perfectly safe and healthy way of doing this.

Have a look at this page for more info.

Hi Tangerine and welcome.

I've been using copper peptides in all their varieties for a number of years. There are many different formulations for different purposes. In fact it's very confusing.

For getting rid of skin tags I first used 'Trireduction' and 2% salycic acid. Now they have a stronger copper peptide cream called 'Supercop x 2' so I'm using that.

I buy them from www.skinbio.com - the inventor's site, but it's extremely confusing and some people recommend buying from http://www.dianayvonne.com/category/13.cream/ because the postage is cheaper. You can buy sample sizes on both sites, but I use skinbio because they give you lots of very generous freebies with every purchase.

I recommend and use Copper peptides for long term healthy skin. I haven't seen any overnight miracles though so don't get carried away.

HTH Smile Ask away if you want to know anything else about them. I've used pretty much every product at some time or another.

Thanks Molly for your reply. Very Happy

I am wondering how long does it took for you to see any noticeable result? I asked because even the smallest combo they offered has 2oz of each cream. I think 2oz can last quite a while since it is only applied to the mole. Then it worries me that they still offers bigger sized combo. Does it takes a year to see the result?

From the product list it says the super copper could be irritating. Do you really feel that way? If I incorporate copper peptide into my skincare routine(not for removing moles, but for the general goodness of the skin), which copper product do you recommend?


Sorry for so many quesitons. I've heard some good thing about copper peptide before not really know anyone who uses it. I am so excited to find this forum. It is such a wonderful place to meet so many knowleageable people like you.

Hi Tangerine

In fact the mole removal thing is incredibly fast - a few days. They puff up, turn red, then crust off. You would really only need a sample pot for that of one of the strongest CPs, either Trireduction or Supercop x 2 cream and some kind of chemical exfoliation, any will do (like glycolic or salycic acid) you get get a sample pot of that too just for the moles if you don't already have any.

But, not all moles can be eliminated, only certain kinds. I'm not a doctor I'm not sure which (you could ask Skinbio about your particular moles), but I'm thinking from what I've read big flat, black moles wouldn't react. It's small, protruding, skin-taggy ones that it works best for. Although it does also have an inhibiting effect on larger moles, ie. they shouldn't grow bigger. I think this is true because I have a mole on my cheek just like my mother's and hers grew as she got older, but mine seems to have shrunk ( I only used the mild CPs on it). But I couldn't swear to it as I don't have a 'control' mole for comparison.

As far as general skincare goes you need to give me a little more information. How old are you? What skin-type do you have? Are you prone to acne? Do you have lines or wrinkles. Hyperpigmentation? Any other problems?

Let me know - glad to help.

Hi Spoon
We have no idea what kind of mole you are trying to deal with. Like others have said, it could be dangerous. Best to find out. I don't want to feel I'm encouraging you to treat yourself by giving advice on removal. You should only do this if you know that the mole you are dealing with is normal.

I'm sure this won't help you at all, but it reminded me of an experience as a child. Out of the blue I developed a mole on my neck, and I couldnt stand it. So I rubbed it and rubbed it and one day it just turned black and fell off!

Now, I don't suggest doing this....although I would do it before using chemicals on it! Wink Best to get it checked out by a doc, I'm pretty sure they can freeze them or burn them off right in the office.

Dear Molly,
Thanks for your explaination. It sounds like the 'TriReduction' cream is some sort of copper cream and the exfol cream is the glycolic cream? I will check to see whether I can get a sample pot of each.

In terms of my skin, I am 29 and doesn't have any noticeable wrinkles yet. But I need to prevent them from coming. I have very fair skin which easily gets discolorations.(and some of them are moles Sad ) What would you recommend?

Again, thanks for sharing your knowledge.

when i had it checked by a docter he simply said it has no cancer.. Then he said there is no real need to remove it and sent me off. I want to remove it because i hate how it looks. I'm buff, and i got a mole on my chest. Bah

Hi Tangerine.

Yes, a sample pot of Trireduction and of Exfol cream should be fine for the moles. You can buy sample sizes of both on the Diana Yvonne site. You can on Skinbio too but you can only buy sets of several different samples, which you might or might not want.

If you're only 29 I'd recommend the Protect and Restore Classic - it's the mildest and lightest of them and it's nice to wear as a light moisturiser during the day. You could try the lightest eye cream - CP night eyes premier (actually that's one thing I've never sampled - find the Classic quite light enough for the eye area). Or you could try the CP serum. You can get a sample pot of that but only from Skinbio it seems. I find a sample pot of the serum lasts forever because you only need 3 or 4 drops spread over your face. I think that's better for night use and it has a slightly stronger effect than the Classic.

More importantly sounds like you should be looking into a good sunscreen for everyday use considering you're so fair skinned and you get 'discolouration'. I really don't like the skinbio sun products and I still haven't found anything I'd swear by so can't help there.

A lot of people would also recommend an antioxidant serum for daytime use under your sunscreen for prevention. Vitamin C serum is very popular on the board, but you can't use Vit C and Copper together. I'm using Vit C now in the day and Copper Peptides at night.
