Radio-Surgery is an atraumatic method of cutting and coagulation soft tissues.  No pressure is needed and the cells are vaporized in the path of the radio waves, causing them to split apart, much like a hot wire through polystyrene.  This results in less trauma to the cells, less fibrous scarring and less postoperative discomfort than typical removal with a scalpel.  The other advantage is that the electrodes are self-sterilizing in use, diminishing the likelihood of post procedure infection.  The results are unbelievable.


Radiofrequency surgery should not be confused with conventional electrosurgery (diathermy, cautery) which involves the application of a heated electrode to the skin.


Radio frequency surgery using very high frequency radio waves transmitted between a plastic coated antenna plate and a small electrode induces heat within the cells in contact with the electrode. Moisture within these cells is vaporized causing cell destruction and tissue division. Unlike conventional electro surgery, in radio frequency surgery, the electrode remains cold.



These lesions are caused by the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) and may appear on almost any part of the body. Usual treatment is by cryosurgery (cold therapy with liquid nitrogen), but options include special injections, topical agents, or the pulsed dye laser.



There are many types of moles. Some are removed for medical reasons and some for cosmetic reasons. Different techniques are used depending on the type of mole. The CO2 , ruby or Erbium:YAG lasers are used in various cases. Moles – usually brown and circular. They may be flat or raised and have even or irregular pigmentation. If they have changed recently they should be checked by a doctor to exclude melanoma (cancer change in the mole),polyps, and other wart-like skin growths are treated by either cryosurgery (cold therapy.

Skin tags or liquid nitrogen) or the CO2 laser. Scarring is minimal. Skin Tags - fleshy growths usually on a stalk. They are often seen around the underarm, under breasts or in the groin.


Seborrhoeic keratoses - look warty and are usually brown in colour. They are soft and often break off if scratched. They are common in people over 35.


Verruccas - warts on the feet.

Raised lesions - any growth above the skin is a skin lesion. Most are unimportant but some can be skin cancers so they should be checked by a doctor.
