Hyfrecation of skin lesions

Hyfrecation or electrosurgery is often combined with excision to treat large warts that haven’t responded to topical dermatology treatments.

I have a question about hyfrecation of skin lesions

Why would I have hyfrecation of skin lesions?

You might have hyfrecation or electrosurgery if you have a wart that is unable to be removed completely.

What happens during hyfrecation of skin lesions?

Hyfrecation or electrosurgery is carried out after removing the bulk of the wart by excision, the remaining part of the wart is burned away using an electric current. This can be quite painful, particularly if there are a number of warts, so we may need to give you an anaesthetic.
