A simple procedure using radiowaves to remove moles, birthmarks and skin tags. Performed under local anaesthetic to ensure you remain comfortable during the treatment. A device called radiosurgery electrode is used to gently shave the mole away from the surface of the skin. Immediately after the procedure, the wound looks pink. Lesions should be covered with a dressing for at least 24 hours. Resulting crust usually falls off after about 2 to 3 weeks. Skin will gradually come back to its normal colour, leaving minimal scar or no scar at all.
Radiosurgery does not employ a ground plate but rather an antenna that gathers the radiowaves and channels them back to the machine. The antenna, which does not need to be in direct contact with the patient, is Teflon coated so it cannot shock or burn the patient.
