Electrosurgery :

Electrosurgery is the application of a high-frequency (radio frequency) electrical current to biological tissue/skin as a means to cut, coagulate, desiccate, or fulgurate tissue.

There are so many dermatology procedures that respond well to electrosurgery that dermatologists generally use it every day.  

 The use of electrosurgery has been tied to less bleeding during the procedure which reduces complications, promotes rapid healing and minimal scarring.

  • Electrofulguration is used to treat skin tags and protruding warty lesions such as seborrhoeic keratoses, viral warts, xanthelasma and dermatosis papulosa nigra (DPN).

  • Electrodesiccation is used to remove flat seborrhoeic keratoses and lesions under the skin such as syringoma, milia, comedones, sebaceous hyperplasia and molluscum contagiosum.
