How can Skin Tags and Warts be treated with a simple cautery

Cautery for Skin tags & Warts

What might be completely harmless might not appear aesthetically pleasing. A skin tag is one such thing. It is a delicate hanging skin piece that can grow from any part of the body and is mostly not dangerous. On another note warts may look similar to skin tags but they are a viral infection and are contagious to self and others. Both these are the most common conditions treated by cauterization. So say goodbye to self-consciousness and get your skin tags or warts removed today with Cauterization at our Auro Skin Clinic. But before heading further, you should learn more about the procedure. That's why we are discussing all you should know about the Cauterization procedure.


What is Cauterization of Skin tags?

Cauterization by radiofrequency or electrocautery involves burning a small part of the skin to prevent the growth of skin tags or warts. This operation causes tissue necrosis which causes removal of the skin tag and the wart. Finally leads to the regeneration of newer skin over the cauterized area in the next 7-10 days.

While it might sound painful, patients don't have to worry. During the procedure, our clinical dermatologist numbs the part of the skin by anesthesia- either topical cream or injectable. Our expert ensures that you don't experience any pain or discomfort. After numbing, our dermatologist removes or burns the skin tag with the help of a radiofrequency probe or electrocautery probe or laser. It can be done on any part of the body including the eyelids, nose, genital mucosa. Cauterization is not just used for skin tags or warts. Other indications for Cauterization include DPNs, giant acrochordons, benign moles, ear lobe repair, milia, mucous cysts, and hemostasis, among others.
