A type of radiosurgery known as radiofrequency or radio wave surgery is based on cutting tissue with high frequency alternating current. This surgical procedure is very different form traditional electro-surgery and other types of electrocauterization because it can simultaneously cut and coagulate tissue without using any kind of physical pressure. We use Ellman Acu Sect radiofrequency surgical tool which gives our doctors excellent surgical control, precision and versatility. You can see the procedure results here.
Removing moles and other benign changes
For benign changes we often use a surgical method which commonly leaves a barely visible longitudinal scar. With Ellman radiofrequency, only the growth/mole on the skin is removed, after local anaesthesia, which is injected with a very thin needle under the growth itself. Immediately after the treatment, a wound is formed at the n location of the growth. This wound does not bleed and it is of the same size as the removed growth. Subsequently a scab is formed, and after 7-10 days, a fresh layer of skin forms which in time acquires the same colour as the surrounding skin.
After removing the mole with this method, it can be sent for PHD (pathohistological) analysis to determine whether the change is benign. If not, further treatment is necessary.
