Radiowave therapy is one of the most effective ways to remove skin tags, moles & unsightly birthmarks. A very thin wire made of platinum the width of a hair is used to remove the mole under local anaesthetic.
Most moles are caused by overgrowth of pigment cells, and are often benign and harmless. In most cases moles begin as flat spots which are brown in colour, but over time they begin to protrude over the surface of the skin. Removal is considered why they become highly visibly, appearing on the face or neck area.
Radiowave therapy, often known as Radiosurgery technology, is one of the most effective ways to remove skin tags, moles, and unsightly birthmarks. The treatment can also be used to remove veins, both spider and thread, that occur on the face and body.
When dealing with moles, your doctor will take your medical history into account, and examine your moles under Derma-scope in order to discover whether moles are benign or more serious. If the mole is distinguishes as simply benign, then the Radiowave procedure is used. It feathers and shaves the mole without hitting the skin, this avoids any kind of scarring.
A very thin wire the width of a hair is used to remove the mole under local anaesthetic. Made of platinum, the application of radiowaves makes the wire electrically charged. This is then brushed across the area where the mole is present. The use of the electrically charged platinum wire helps the blood vessels to coagulate so the removal of the mole, the skin tag or the birth mark does not result in bleeding and will not require sutures.
Not only is Radiowave Surgery comfortable and very quick, but it leaves patients without scars which is highly important when dealing with moles and blemishes on the face. Radiowave Surgery is not to be confused with Electric Cautery. This procedure involves heat, whereas Radiowave Surgery is completely cold.
After the radiowave surgery, the area treated will appear redder than usual. This will be followed by the formation of a scab as the body begins its natural healing reaction. When new skin emerges around seven days later, it will slowly begin to fade and blend into the surrounding tissue, leaving minimal scarring.
Radiowave surgery is often not suitable for patients that have Cardiac Pacemakers, but this is not usually a problem for those with newer pacemakers so it is important to discuss this with your doctor.
Cryotherapy is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that can remove skin lesions and other non-harmful irregularities on the skin. A jet of cryogenic liquids – liquefied gases – is pointed towards the area of the skin that needs to be removed.
Mole mapping is commonly used by people with around 50-100 moles, those with moles that are unusual shapes or in areas that aren’t easily visible, such as the back. It can also be useful for anyone with a history of melanoma or if it runs in the family.
Mole Removal is an operation to remove the mole often due to changes in shape, colour, is unsightly, painful or restricting your movement. Removing a mole is usually a quick & straightforward procedure & is often performed as an out-patient or day-case.
