What is radiofrequency removal like?
A new technology known as radiowave surgery can remove benign moles and related lesions of the head and neck with very cosmetic scars. The radiowave technology by creating radiowaves (yes, just like your AM and FM radio) and using them to melt away the mole. While I cannot guarantee any patient that they won’t have any scar, many times when the patient returns for an 8 week follow up, neither the patient or I remember where the mole was because the scar is so esthetic. In the thousands of moles I have removed on the head and neck, I have yet to have a patient feel that the scar was worse than the mole.
