Electrocautery

Electrocautery or (electrocauterization) is a procedure which is routinely used in surgery to reduce bleeding and to remove unwanted or harmful tissue. It can also be used cosmetically to remove skin tags, warts, age spots, freckles, and solar lentigo; and also to seal thread blood vessels.

Electricity is used to heat a needle which is put on the spot. The electricity is not sent into the body.

The outcome is instantly noticeable. Electrocautery usually leaves behind a wound which may take 1 to 3 weeks to heal. The time it takes for the wound to heal depends on the size of the spot/wart/freckle/etc. Bigger warts, freckles, take longer to heal. Sometimes more than one treatment is necessary.

Multiple applications can continue once the scab from previous treatments has dropped off.
