It needs to be mixed well before use. The best way to do this is to squeeze the tube gently between your fingers (make sure the cap is on), so you can feel the mixture moving back and forth. Take the cap off and squeeze a TINY drop out, if it still looks a little watery then try again. Please do not ignore this step. The key ingredient, bloodroot needs to be mixed well.
1. The area around the mole or skin tag needs to be clean. Using a warm wash cloth or sterile sponge, clean the area, applying gentle pressure to the problem spot. You want to open up the pores and soften the skin as much as possible to allow Dermatend to do it’s work.
2.Now you need to exfoliate the surface of the mole or skin tag, to remove dead skin. This will ensure the Dermatend gets right inside. You can use the supplied emery board, or a small pumice stone, if you have one. It is also recommended that you scratch or prick the surface with the supplied toothpicks or even better a sterile needle. If you draw blood, don’t panic,it’s actually a good thing and will ensure the product gets in quickly. If you mole or skin tag is old or large then you need to make sure this step has been completed thoroughly. If your mole is raised! Make sure to scratch the sides as well. It may seem a little harsh, but just try to focus on how you will feel once your problem spot has been removed. Lastly the area needs to be sterilized, so swab with Isopropyl Alcohol, mild Hydrogen Peroxide or similar.
3. OK your ready to apply the DermaTend paste. You can use a Q Tip or one of the supplied toothpicks. Apply an even layer making sure to cover every bit of the mole or skin tag, even the sides if it is raised. You should feel a slight burning or tingling sensation. If not then the last step may not have been completed, so go back and try again. This is another important point. The burning or stinging sensation (it won’t be really severe) is an indication that the Dermatend is working. When applying the paste keep a steady hand and try not to get too much on the surrounding skin. Once you are certain the is an even coating stick on the supplied fabric bandage. The area should be fully covered.
4. After 24 hours, remove the bandage, it should have become a scab and started to recede. Using a wash cloth soaked in very hot water, hold it against mole/wart or skin tag, do this a few times. This will open up the pores and allow deeper penetration. Repeat Step 2 and 3. Do this for the first 3 days.
5. After the first 3 days if a scab has not formed, continue with steps 2 and 3. If a scab has formed. Simply, use a hot wash cloth to open up the pores, but do not remove the scab. Then let the scab heal and it will reveal fresh new skin.
