Radiofrequency cosmetic mole and skin lesion removal

Radio waves destroy the skin lesion with minimal damage to other tissues. For raised moles and other skin lesions, this method usually results in less scarring than other methods of mole removal.

A doctor removes the skin lesion by burning it with radio waves. This technique minimises damage to surrounding tissues and has a relatively low rate of scarring compared with other skin lesion removal procedures.
