Wart Removal Q & A
What causes warts, skin tags, and moles?
Warts, skin tags, and moles are all abnormal, benign skin growths with different causes.
Warts are caused by overgrowth of the superficial layers of skin that is triggered by a viral infection.
Skin tags develop in areas where your skin experiences excess friction, especially around the underarms, eyelids, neck, and groin.
Moles develop from normal skin cells that grow in a cluster, rather than being spread out along the surface of your skin. Moles can also develop from sun damage and UV radiation and should be assessed for signs of cancer.
If you experience warts, skin tags, or moles that are bothering you, radiofrequency technology can remove them quickly and easily.
What is radiofrequency (RF) technology?
RF technology utilizes radiofrequency energy to remove warts, skin tags, and non-cancerous moles. Dr. Averilla places a radiofrequency device against the skin lesion and passes radio waves into the skin to remove the lesion.
There are different radiofrequency devices that can be used, depending on the size and location of the wart, skin tag, or mole. Common devices include fine needle electrodes, wire loop electrodes, and scalpel blades attached to electrodes.
What are the benefits of RF technology for removal of skin lesions?
Compared to scalpel and laser incisions, RF technology is less invasive and has no risk of bleeding or infection after treatment. In fact, recovery is much faster than alternative treatments since the radio waves are gentler and produce less scarring than the more invasive alternatives.
Since warts can be a chronic issue and may appear in significant numbers, it is important to find a fast and easy solution for removal. With RF, you can get warts removed quickly — in about an hour — without the extra pre- or post-treatment care that is associated with scalpel and laser incisions.
What can I expect after RF removal of warts, skin tags, and moles?
It is normal to experience minor swelling, bruising, and tenderness for a few days after treatment. Any bleeding is abnormal and should be reported to Dr. Averilla immediately.
Once your skin has healed – which takes about three to five days – you will see that the skin lesion is gone and you have smooth skin again.
