Radiofrequency (RF) surgery works well in the clinical setting as it causes minimal collateral thermal damage, resulting in rapid healing and aesthetically pleasant scars. It is an office-based procedure, performed under local anesthesia, with minimal complications. It has the advantage of making the surgery easy and fast. It is an effective tool in the treatment of various skin conditions like warts, skin tags, moles, molluscum contagiosum, seborrheic keratosis etc.
Radiofrequency (RF) induces the thermal destruction of the targeted tissue by an electrical current. As the electrode tip is not heated, there is minimal thermal damage to the surrounding tissues, producing good aesthetic results.
