Mole & Skin Tag Aftercare Advice

Wound / Scab care

  • Keep your scabs covered with a plaster or dressing for 24-48 hours.
  • Do not touch or pick at your scabs - this includes allowing clothes to rub it and protecting it from your pillow at night. 
  • You can wash your face as normal but be gentle over the scabs and avoid soaking them in water for long periods of time.
  • Under the scab your skin is healing. The longer it does so, the better your results will be.
  • Once the plaster is off, use Vaseline or a silicone scar gel at least twice a day.

Sun exposure

  • Once your scab has come away, please avoid exposing it to strong sunlight for at least 4 weeks.
  • Use a minimum of SPF 30 (preferably SPF 50) sunscreen daily e.g. ZO Daily Sheer SPF50. Reapply throughout the day if in direct sunlight.


Keep your wound clean at all times. If you notice it becoming wet, angry or developing puss, it may be infected. If left untreated, this will affect the end result and so please contact us immediately so that we can advise. You may need an antibiotic cream (which you can also get from your GP or minor injuries centre).
