Radiofrequency (RF) Skin Surgery

Introduction to Radiofrequency Skin Surgery

Radiofrequency skin surgery (RF) is an aesthetic technique that uses RF instruments to remove moles and skin tags in a scar-less manner. 

It is best performed in lesions which are raised above the surface of the skin. The technique shaves off the lesion and the resultant wound heals with a small scab. 

Radiofrequency skin surgery is a very precise technique which removes moles and tags, with out incision and scars and with minimal down time and of course without  bleeding.

How is Radiofrequency skin tightening procedure performed

It is an outpatient procedure, meaning there's no overnight stay. First your skin is cleaned thoroughly. 

Radiofrequency skin surgery is done to remove moles and skin tags without leaving a scar. 

The mole or skin tag is anesthetized with a local anesthetic. Mole is removed by using the fine Radiofrequency instrument. There is no pain. The fine vessels get coagulated simultaneously and hence there is no bleeding either.

Once the blemish has been shaved off a small band-aid is applied. There is slight redness for a couple of days.

What are the benefits of Radiofrequency skin surgery over traditional surgery ?

  • Traditional techniques use a scalpel to cut out the mole or skin tag. These create a wound which has to be sutured. RF skin surgery does not require skin suturing.
  • Traditional techniques also leave a scar where as RF skin surgery instrument gives the surgeon complete precision to avoid scar formation.
  • There is no bleeding.
  • Since there is no incision and suturing usually there is faster healing.

Who are best candidates for Radiofrequency skin surgery ?

An ideal candidate is in good physical health, understands the procedure, and has realistic expectations of the outcome. It is best effective in patients with skin tags and small to medium non suspicious moles. If the mole has suspicious characteristics then a formal mole removal surgery with advanced reconstruction methods may be required.

When will i see the results ?

As such wound healing takes 7-10 days but dressing is usually required only for first two days. Results are appreciable immediately. Since the mole removal is done on the conservative side to remove as little extra skin as possible some times a revision procedure may required for touch-up if a small mole reappears.

What are the risks and safety considerations ?

  • Our trained team of medical and nursing professionals have performed many procedures. We give utmost importance to patient safety. 
  • In some people radiofrequency skin surgery can cause a dot like scar if the mole is too deep. Such scar may become hyper pigmented and will require further treatment with cream or ointment, or may become a hypopigmented spots which are lighter than the surrounding skin.
  • Multiple recurrence has to be treated with a mole removal surgery.

What are the After-Procedure instructions and precautions ?

You will experience slight redness after procedure. It has a down time of 2 to 7 days depending on the aggressiveness of the treatment. After your treatment session, your health care provider may recommend a moisturizer or facial product to prevent infectiont. You'll need to avoid the sun for several months after radiofrequency procedure since your healing skin will be susceptible to tanning and hyperpigmentation. Proper use of sunscreen and following after care instructions given to you at the time of treatment is of utmost importance.
