All treatments are performed using the strictest sanitary procedures, and topical anesthetics are applied. The procedure involves a cauterization machine that has been successfully used for over 30 years by skin care professionals to remove all types of common surface skin growths.
It uses a high-frequency electrical current that delivers a precise spark through a micro-needle to cauterize and desiccate skin growths. During the procedure the micro-needle remains above the skin surface; it does not penetrate the skin.
As the growth is removed, a natural protective scab develops and falls off in a few days. It is replaced with healthy new skin tissue.
The procedure is generally more effective than liquid nitrogen, is less painful, and less expensive.
What are skin growths?
Skin growths are accumulations of various types of cells that look different from the normal surrounding skin. They may be raised or flat and range in color from dark brown or black to flesh-colored or red. They may be present at birth or develop later as we age.
