Cosmetic Radio Surgery is a modern technique used to remove skin lesions such as moles, warts and any unwanted lumps and bumps quickly – both easily and painlessly. It is also a minimum scar technique to repair torn earlobes or for re-fashioning droopy, long earlobes.
During the procedure, a surgical electrode emits radio-waves that glide through tissue safely and precisely without the use of pressure. The ‘cutting’ effect happens as the radio-waves cause the tissue being treated to disintegrate and split apart as if it had been cut by a razor sharp blade.
The electrode used is self-sterilising while in use – so an added benefit of this procedure is the very low risk of post-procedure infection.
How many treatments will you need?
Usually a one-off procedure, however some moles have a deep element and can recur, therefore, a repeat procedure may be required. It is usually possible to return to work immediately following the procedure and the wound will heal within one to four weeks, leaving a flat layer of new skin that gradually blends into the normal skin colour. (Please note repeat procedures are chargable).
Excellent permanent results, as there are no cuts or stitches. As only the lesion itself is removed there is very little damage to the surrounding tissue allowing rapid healing and minimising the risk of scarring.
