What is a Cosmetic radiosurgery?
Cosmetic radiosurgery uses a device such as the Ellman Surgitron to deliver a very high-frequency radiowave to the skin via a delivery device. This results in cutting or fulguration of the skin whilst minimising bleeding allowing detailed surgeries to be performed with limited bleeding. Radiosurgery is the most detailed form of electrosurgery as the high-frequency radiowaves result in less dispersion of heat and therefore less damage to surrounding tissues and less scarring.
At Skin on Forty-Five our team of trained doctors and nurses use the Ellman Surgitron to perform our Radiosurgery.
What is the process of Cosmetic radiosurgery involve?
Cosmetic radiosurgery is a quick and easy method of removing any unwanted moles or skin lesions with minimal scarring. It is a day procedure in the Skin on Forty-Five clinic taking between 15-60 minutes depending upon the number of lesions you need removed.
Local anaesthetic is injected into the area a few minutes prior to the procedure after careful cleaning. Once confirmation of anaesthesia has been performed the lesion of concern will be removed by using high-frequency radio waves to scrape the mole away. A small raw area is all that is left following surgery. This is dressed and the team provide careful post-operative instructions for you to apply at home. This small area heals just as a graze does – usually over a period of 10-14 days.
