Radio Frequency Cauterization is a procedure which involves controlled burning of the tissue using a high frequency low intensity electrical current. Since the electrical current used in fact of a very low intensity, the procedure is absolutely safe. The high frequency ensures a very smooth removal while leaving behind negligible or no marks.

The Procedure:
