Electrocautery treatment is a way to remove skin tags, spider veins, moles, and wart using heat from electricity. The electricity is used to heat the needle which is put on the wart. The electricity is not sent into your body. At Kashyap Skin Clinic, Dwarka Delhi, Electrocautery can also be used to remove other growths on your skin.
Electrosurgery is used to destroy benign and malignant lesions, to control bleeding, and to cut or excise tissue. Electrosurgery is simple to perform and is useful for treating a variety of skin lesions, especially small superficial lesions (skin tags and small angiomas).
Modern, high-frequency electrosurgical devices transfer electrical energy to human tissue via a treatment electrode that remains cool. The electrical resistance of human tissue helps convert this electrical energy into molecular energy, which causes denaturation of intracellular and extracellular proteins, resulting in coagulation or desiccation effects. Raising intracellular water above the boiling point causes cell membrane rupture to produce a cutting effect.
