RF / Electro Cautery of Moles, Warts, Skin Tags

Radio Frequency / Electro Cautery is the process in which by means of passing an electric current through the affected area the skin growth is destroyed in a controlled manner.

The Procedure:

The process starts with a thorough cleansing of the skin followed by application of a numbing cream which reduces any pain due to pricking because of the electric current.

The doctor selects an appropriate cautery probe and places a grounding pad under the body of the patient. The grounding pad protects the person from absolutely any effects of the electric current. Once the machine is switched on and the probe is brought in contact with the target area a small concentrated electric current is passed through the same causing it to burn off and cauterize (stop bleeding) simultaneously.

This makes this process one of the safest, hygienic and most effective treatments for removal of skin tags, moles etc.

Results Expected:

The recovery time depends on the procedure done and the area / size of the treatment area. Typically a small scab forms in the treated area over the next two days which also fall off in approximately a week's time.
