You can remove those annoying skin tags with electrocautery. We offer a mild electrocautery treatment and we do all that we can to ensure your maximum comfort during the procedure.
Electrocautery is a simple procedure that leaves the normal skin unharmed. Topical anesthetic is used to numb the treatment area and treatment time varies depending on how many skin tags there are. The skin tag is replaced with a small scab and your skin returns to normal in 1 week. We have the expertise to ensure treatment is gentle, safe and as comfortable as possible.
Electrocautery sends an electrical charge through the skin, damaging the wart, mole, skin tags, milia seeds connective tissues. This would cut them right out of the skin without bleeding. Before the procedure, we will perform localised anesthesia to the areas that are going to be treated. So, you would not feel anything throughout the procedure.
Yes. Your mole or skin tag will be completely removed through the Electrocautery treatment.
Electrocautery is known to leave some side effects like: Scarring : As the skin growth is removed from the skin, there will be a minimal lesion for the skin opening. Over time, this will develop into a scar. Swelling & Redness : Electrocautery will cause a minor inflammation to the skin due to the heat. This will cause the skin to have some redness and swelling after the procedure but this is very normal.
Electrocautery is a non-surgical treatment thus it cuts a lot of the high risks. There is little to no downtime for electrocautery although you may experience redness over the areas. You may resume your normal routine as usual after the treatment.
