Cosmetic radio surgery is a modern technique used to remove skin lesions such as moles, warts and any unwanted lumps and bumps quickly, easily and painlessly. It is also a no scar technique to repair torn earlobes or for refashioning droopy, long earlobes.
Using the latest advanced radio-wave technology, the procedure is carried out under local anaesthetic and takes just fifteen to twenty minutes to achieve excellent results. No stitches are required and scarring is minimal – almost like airbrushing away any imperfections without a trace!
During the procedure a surgical electrode emits radio-waves that glide through tissue safely and precisely without the use of pressure. The ‘cutting’ effect happens as the radio-waves cause the tissue being treated to disintegrate and split apart as if it had been cut by a razor sharp blade. The electrode used is self-sterilising while in use – so an added benefit of this procedure is the very low risk of post-procedure infection.
Permanent removal of unwanted skin growths on the face and body. Moles which are flat or raised, skin tags, seborrhoeic keratoses which look like warts and are usually brown in colour, warts: these are due to a viral infection and are common on the hands but can occur anywhere. Correcting torn or elongated earlobes.
Excellent permanent results, as there are no cuts or stitches there is minimal scarring. As only the lesion itself is removed there is very little damage to the surrounding tissue allowing rapid healing and again minimizing the risk of scarring.
It is usually possible to return to work immediately following the procedure. The wound will heal within one to four weeks, leaving a flat layer of new skin that gradually blends into the normal skin colour
Usually a one-off procedure, however some moles have a deep element and in these cases can recur and a repeat procedure may be required.
