Electrocoagulation or cryodestruction is one of the most common and reliable methods used to remove the raised and "on-foot" derivatives from the skin surface. Vascular asterisks, dot hemangiomas, cherry-shaped angiomas, etc. are also treated with this method. It is also used in carrying.

The essence of the method is based on the cutting of tissues with an electric knife without leaving a rough scar and at the same time coagulation of the vessels. At this time, a thin crust is formed and the wound heals faster.
Electrocoagulation is considered one of the gentle methods, so the risk of a rough scar after this procedure, unlike surgical intervention, is minimal. This method is also used to remove papillomas in places that require special care and caution (at the eyelash line, in the corners of the eyes).
The course of the procedure
Before taking the derivative, it is necessary to consult with a dermato-cosmetologist about the possibility of carrying out the procedure and choosing the optimal method. No special preparation is required for the procedure. Under local anesthesia, the patient does not feel any pain.
Immediately after the procedure, a thin skin of pink color appears in the former place of the derivative, and a little later it is covered with frostbite.
It is not recommended to tan in the sun for 3-4 weeks after the procedure, protect the wound area with sunscreen creams, and do not remove the bandage prematurely. Soaking protects the wound from infection, on the 10th day it falls off and a new epithelium is formed under it.
A follow-up appointment with a dermato-cosmetologist takes place after 7-10 days. The doctor evaluates the condition of the wound area and gives additional advice on wound care. After electrodestruction, the material can be sent for histological examination to determine benignity, if necessary. Unlike electrocoagulation, it is not possible to obtain material after laser treatment, as the derivative evaporates. In some cases, the dermato-cosmetologist can also improve the aesthetic appearance of the treated area by polishing the edges of the wound.
