Moles occur when skin cells grow in groups instead of being spread throughout the skin. They can appear anywhere on the body alone or in clusters and tend to be dark in color, usually black or brown. The mole is removed with electrocautery, a safe procedure in which a small probe with electric current running through it is used to destroy the unwanted mole or skin tissue.
Most moles are benign, but they can be cause for concern if they begin to change in shape or size. Moles that grow bigger, change color or develop asymmetrical borders have the potential to become malignant. Many patients, however, simply want to remove moles for cosmetic reasons. In either case, electrocautery may be a good option.
A wart is a small, hard, benign growth on the skin. They are usually caused when a virus enters the body through broken skin, causing that area to become infected with a wart. Similar to moles, warts can also be removed with electrocautery. The treatment is straightforward and can usually be completed in under 30 minutes. Electrocautery is often a good choice if warts have not gone away on their own or have not responded to other treatment methods.
Skin tags are very common, usually harmless and painless small growths of skin that connect to the underlying skin via a small stalk. Occasionally, they can become irritated from rubbing against clothing or another item such as a backpack strap. Skin tags frequently grow along the upper chest, underarms, eyelids and neck, although they can grow anywhere. They can be removed quickly by our licensed professional.
Am I a Good Candidate for Electrocautery?
Electrocautery is a non-surgical treatment that requires no more than a topical anesthetic to help ensure comfort. As a result, almost anyone who is looking to remove a mole, wart or skin tag can make a good candidate for treatment. During your consultation, our specialist will help you learn more about electrocautery and answer any questions or concerns you may have.
