Radiosurgery or Radiofrequency or Radiowave surgery is a non-surgical, minimally invasive, painless, and aesthetically satisfying procedure used during the last two decades in the effective in moles removal, warts removal, skin tags removal, keratosis removal and other skin lumps or bumps removal, assuring minimal to no scarring, procedures successfully performed at our Renew Skin & Health Clinic.
When wanting to get rid of such skin conditions, we must always seek professional medical advice, as a radiosurgery private treatment performed by a fully qualified practitioner will ensure optimum results and prevent or minimize possible risks, complications or side-effects. That is why we recommend you to contact our Head Office at Renew Skin & Health Clinic and schedule an appointment for a specialized consultation with the cosmetic specialist.
Regarding the condition of the skin lumps, growths or lesions, these are mostly benign and harmless, however, in some rare situations and under the negative effects of free-radicals or harmful environmental factors, or even genetics, they can suffer alterations and develop a malignant nature, thus requiring immediate removal. On the other hand moles, warts or other such lesions can simply be unaesthetic, situations in which patients seek professional advice on private treatments for their removal that can ensure excellent cosmetic results. This is where radiosurgery has gained primary position and managed to exceed the results of other types of removal procedures, due to the superior cosmetic results it ensures.
First of all, let’s state and clarify this medical term as it actually refers to two entirely different surgical techniques and make sure we eliminate any possible confusion regarding the treatments they are used for. The first type of Radiosurgery is the Stereotactic Radiotherapy which allows the non-invasive treatment of benign or malignant conditions and vascular malformations using ionizing radiation, namely gamma rays. It was first developed in Sweden in 1949 to provide irradiation for brain tumor lesions.
The second type of Radiosurgery is Radiofrequency or Radiowave surgery, the one we have discussed in the first paragraphs, which uses a high frequency alternate current for the cutting of tissues. The Radiofrequency procedure differs from electrosurgery or electrocautery as it simultaneously cuts and cauterizes the lesion, coagulating tissues with no required pressure application, or tissue contact, while electrocautery cuts the skin tissues by passing an electric current through the patient, the risk of shock and burn to the patient being quite high.
Radiosurgery or radiowave surgery performed at Renew Skin & Health Clinic by experienced dermatologists uses high frequencies of 4 MHz, but deliver low temperatures through the differently-shaped micro-fiber electrodes. The most important aspect of radiosurgery is that it ensures high precision, great control and causes minimal to no damage to the surrounding tissues with this 4 MHz high frequency. This also implies less postoperative pain, enhanced healing, minimal to no bleeding whatsoever and no downtime required.
