Electrocautery is an effective medical technology to remove these benign (non-cancerous) skin growths. This procedure uses heat from an electric current to destroy abnormal tissue, such as a tumour or other lesion. Simultaneously it also used to control bleeding during surgery.
Prior to this treatment a local anaesthetic will be administered, to ensure your comfort throughout the treatment. The procedure involves using a light electrical current to heat up the skin, in order to achieve tissue destruction in a very narrow and targeted location.
Following the treatment, you can return to your daily activities immediately after your and a protective dressing will be applied, so that you do not rub or catch the skin. You should keep the wound bandaged and dry for the first day.
After the first 24 to 48 hours, wash around the wound with clean water 2 times a day. You may cover the wound with a thin layer of petroleum jelly, such as Vaseline, and a non-stick bandage. Apply more petroleum jelly and replace the bandage as needed.
Electrocautery usually leaves behind a wound which may take 1 to 6 weeks to heal. Healing usually occurs within 2 to 4 weeks. The time it takes the wound to heal depends on the size of the lesion. Healing time may be prolonged if a large area of tissue is burned.
Curettage and cautery of a skin lesion always leaves some degree of scarring as it is not possible to curette the skin without this happening.
