If you struggle with unwanted skin growths that affect your appearance and confidence, you’re not alone. Approximately 59% of the American population admit they don’t feel comfortable in their own skin, whether it’s their overall body image, clothes, social media, and yes, even skin issues. But thanks to advances in cosmetic surgery, you now have more options than ever to treat any bothersome skin issues. So, if you’re ready to address unwanted skin growths, consider cosmetic radiosurgery.
Cosmetic radiosurgery is a straightforward laser procedure that takes only 20-30 minutes to perform. First, Dr. Tandon applies local anesthesia to the treatment site. And then, she utilizes our Ellman Surgitron FFPF EMC device to remove the targeted growth layer by skin layer. Because the procedure does not involve cutting or incisions, no stitches are necessary. For this reason, cosmetic radiosurgery is perfect for removing skin tags, warts, moles, seborrheic keratoses and verrucas.
Radiosurgery versus conventional surgical resection
Unlike conventional surgical resection, radiosurgery does not involve actual surgery. And yes, we know the name is confusing. Conventional surgery makes use of a blade to cut or excise the growth. Radiosurgery, on the other hand, uses highly targeted high-frequency radiation to cut through skin cells with precision that even the sharpest blade could not achieve. And the energy used is also self-sterilizing which diminishes the likelihood of infection.
Cosmetic surgery without stitches or scarring
Cosmetic Radiosurgery presents a highly attractive alternative to traditional cosmetic surgery. Because it does not involve actual surgery, radiosurgery has many benefits, including:
- Minimal damage to the surrounding skin
- Minimal scarring
- Minimal pain especially with local anesthetic
- No stitches so there is very little chance of infection
- No bleeding, swelling or inflammation
