We use the Surgitron radiofrequency ablation device for paring down unsightly benign skin lesions. This technique is very popular as it does not result in a scar as would be the case with format excision. it is performed under local anaesthesia with immediate results that mature over about 2 weeks. Unsightly raised lesions that have bothered patients for years are removed in minutes. Patients who have even good quality scars resulting from past format excisions are often amazed at the cosmetic results achieved by this technique.
