Radiofrequency ablation & Electrocautery are minimally invasive procedures that are used to remove viral warts, skin tags, DPNs, small moles, dermatofibroma and other skin growths.

What is Radiofrequency?

It is a highly precise medical procedure that applies high-frequency radiowaves to cauterize the warts and skin tags. It involves passage of the low temperature and high energy radiowaves into the skin to remove the lesions. RF cuts and coagulates the tissues simultaneously. Hence, bleeding is minimal and recovery is faster. RF is practically free from side effects and complications.
RF is a very safe, simple, quick and an ideal procedure for removal of

  • Viral warts
  • skin tags
  • small moles
  • small dermatofibromas
Different types of electrodes are used based on the type of lesions. Eg: fine needles, wire loop and others.
How is radiofrequency done?

First, a numbing cream is applied over the lesion to be removed for half an hour. The cream is removed and the lesions are cauterized using a suitable probe. An antibiotic cream is applied after removal.

What is Electrocautery ?

It is a procedure that helps in removing unwanted or harmful tissue in the patient’s body. It also helps to burn and seal blood vessels. It also helps in the stopping or reduction of bleeding during a surgery or if a person is injured.
This process is usually a safe procedure that is performed with the help of electricity. Electrocautery is also used in the treatment of skin cancers via electrodessication and curettage.

Uses of Electrocautery
  • Electrocautery is useful in a number of ways, some of them are
  • In surgery, it is used to cut through soft tissues to reach the particular site and stop the bleeding by sealing off the blood vessels.
  • It is used to remove tumors, an abnormal growth of tissues in the body.
  • Warts that are found on the genital area or other parts of the body are usually removed with the help of this procedure.
