Moles are blemishes of various sizes and color that are often commonly seen on the body. Although most moles are harmless, it is important to ensure a doctor examines any mole that changes shape, color or starts to irritate.
Skin Tags or Moles can have a huge effect on self-confidence, especially if the mole is on the face or parts of the body where they are visible. At Biolite, our board certified Plastic Surgeon can remove unsightly skin lesions with Cosmetic Radiosurgery.
By employing pioneering Cosmetic Radiosurgery, this simple and delicate radiofrequency shave procedure is performed without crushing cells, thereby causing minimal damage to surrounding tissue. Using heat generated by the existence of a radio frequency wave, the dermal tissue responsible for the lesion is split apart as if it had been cut with a sharp razor-blade. This creates a raw non-bleeding surface no bigger than the original surface area of the lesion. A scab will form 7-10 days later and a fresh, healthy layer of new skin will appear which, over time blends in with the normal skin color.
As an added bonus the electrode used in the treatment is self-sterilizing while in use, which diminishes the likelihood of post procedure infection.
The Ellman Surgitron is a good choice for a variety of skin growths, including moles, skin tags, seborrhoiec keratosis, warts and verruca’s on both the face and the hands. It is also successful in treating sun spots and facial veins, a positive solution for those patients who are not suitable for laser treatments.
