Electrocautery uses heat to “cauterise” and successfully remove unwanted skin legions, including skin tags, small cysts, brown marks, warts and verrucae as well as treating broken capillaries and small blood vessels.
Electrocautery uses heat from a tiny electric current to destroy unwanted tissues without causing damage to the surrounding area. The treated area is immediately closed off, creating a scab that will fall off a few days post-procedure. Since the method is so targeted to only the unwanted tissue and not any tissue underneath or surrounding it, this is a very fast and safe method of lesion removal.
At Aesthetic Health we use Sterex to precisely cauterize benign skin lesions. We are able to treat a wide range of issues, including milia, skin tags, small cysts, brown marks, warts and verrucae.
We use heat from a tiny electric current attached to a small pen-like hand tool to safely destroy unwanted tissue without damaging the surrounding area.
There may be some discomfort during the procedure; however numbing agents are used beforehand.
Most lesions only require one treatment for complete removal; however some specific procedures may need a couple of sessions.
For smaller lesions, the initial healing time for the scab to naturally come off on its own should take about a week, while larger areas will take a couple of days longer.
Once the scab falls off, there will be a red mark that will gradually fade after a couple of weeks. After it is fully healed you can expect minimal to no scarring.
The treatment may involve mild stinging.
There will be seven days of mild crusting before the lesion heals.
