The practice of using heat to burn a part of the body in order to stop bleeding or remove tissue. Cauterization stops bleeding because the extreme heat source essentially melts, or seals, the wound, and the blood vessels in and around it, closed. performed by electrocautery, which involves using a metal probe that’s heated by an electrical current. Alternatively, chemicals may be used for cauterization, especially for the removal of certain abnormal tissues like warts.
TREATMENT EXPECTATION / WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT
Electric energy will immediately stop the blood flow and stop bleeding when the doctor uses it to heat the tissue and make the cut. You might anticipate scabbed wounds following the surgery, which typically heal in 5-7 days. To avoid leaving a scar, you should wait for the crust to fall off naturally.
WHAT TO DO AFTER THE TREATMENT
- After your procedure, stay out of the sun for at least 72 hours, wear sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30, and reapply as necessary for the next 3 to 4 weeks.
- Allow the scab to naturally peel off for the next two weeks without using any scrubs or other skin-peeling products (usually in 5-7 days).
- If the skin is dry after peeling, use aloe vera or a moisturizer.
WHEN WILL THE RESULT SHOWS
After all the scabs have fallen off and the skin has returned to its natural color, the effects of this treatment will become apparent in 2–3 weeks. Very rarely, hypopigmentation or hyperpigmentation may occur. Depending on how deeply buried the mole is, more treatment may be required. Before doing the treatment again in the same location, we need to wait at least 4-6 weeks.
