The Advantages of Radiowave Surgery for Mole Removal

Moles must be evaluated to determine if they are benign. Oddly-shaped moles or skin lesions must be removed and biopsied to ensure that they are not malignant, or pre-malignant, for your peace of mind. The use of radiowave surgery has many significant advantages for the patient, including:

  • A largely "scarless" procedure
  • Predictable results
  • Less heat and lateral damage
  • Speed of mole removal
  • No incision necessary
  • No stitches required

How Does the Radiowave Process Work for Mole Removal?

Radiowave technology is an advancement that has proven to be exceptionally effective. The process involves a very fine platinum wire, about as thick as a human hair, which is electrically charged with radiowaves, and then brushed lightly over the mole surface, essentially vaporizing the mole. The surface of the mole, wart, or skin tag is removed, and the blood in the vessels beneath are coagulated so that no bleeding takes place.

The mole removal Santa Barbara treatment is completed very quickly, with no pain. After completion, the skin in the area appear reddish in color, and a small scab will form. After about one week, the new skin has formed and becomes visible. Over a short period of time, the area will fade to match your surrounding skin. You will be completely comfortable during the process of mole removal, as the area being treated will be numbed with local anesthetic.

As there is no need for cutting or stitches, the procedure is less invasive and your facial skin is left with minimal scarring.

Complications are extremely rare, similar to other mole removal procedures. For some, the mole will reappear, although this is very uncommon, estimated to be in about 1% of the cases and requiring retreatment of the mole area.
