The reluctance to incise skin with electrocautery is partly attributable to concerns about excessive scarring and poor wound healing.
Electrocautery is a minimal invasive technique to remove unwanted tissue, such as milia, hyperplasia keratosis, skin tags, etc. This technique known as cleaner, safer, and more efficient than many of the alternatives. Recovery from where electrocautery was used can also be more rapid than recovery from conventional surgeries, and the risk of infection can be reduced.
Benefits of Electrocautery:
- It is a simple procedure that leaves the normal skin unharmed
- There is no bleeding and no stitches
- The treated area requires no special treatment.
