Common Conditions Treated

Our dermatologist, Dr. Steven Franks, and the rest of the team use electrocautery to address various skin concerns, including warts, moles, skin tags, seborrheic keratoses, and telangiectasias. Whether you’re dealing with benign growths or vascular lesions, electrocautery can effectively improve the appearance of your skin.

Procedure Details

During an electrocautery procedure, a small handheld device delivers a controlled electrical current to the targeted area of your skin. This current heats the tissue, causing it to coagulate or vaporize, depending on the type of lesion being treated. The process is precise and efficient, with the device navigating only over the affected area. Local anesthesia is applied beforehand to minimize any discomfort.

The procedure is typically quick, and you can return to normal daily activities shortly after.

Recovery and Post-Procedure Care

Following the electrocautery treatment, you may experience temporary redness, swelling, or mild discomfort at the treated site. These effects typically subside within a few days.

To support optimal healing, you should avoid direct sunlight exposure to the treated area and follow any specific post-procedure instructions provided by our team. Gentle cleansing of the area and the application of recommended topical treatments may also help in the healing process. By following these guidelines, you can promote faster recovery and maximize the effectiveness of your treatment for clearer, healthier skin.

Consultation Process

During your consultation at Westford Dermatology & Cosmetic Center, we will thoroughly evaluate your skin condition and discuss your concerns and treatment goals. It helps us develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs and preferences. We’ll explain the electrocautery procedure in detail, addressing any questions or concerns you may have. Our goal is to ensure you feel informed, comfortable, and confident about your treatment options before moving forward.
