Radio Surgery (Radiofrequency or Radiowave Surgery) is used to remove moles, warts, skin tags and other so called ‘lumps and bumps’. It can also be used to remove small blood vessels by thermocoagulation effect. The procedure involves the passage of radio waves into the epidermis or dermis of the skin to perform the removal or reshaping of a lesion. Different types of electrodes are used depending on the type of lesion, e.g. fine needle for incision and blood vessels, wire loop for intradermal nevi, scalpel blade etc.
Patients can expect minor swelling, redness, bruising and tenderness in the area for a few days as it heals. There should not however be any bleeding due to the tissue coagulation during treatment.
