September 28, 2019  11:03

Moles, papillomas, fibromas, hemangiomas and other benign neoplasms on the skin cause a lot of inconvenience to people: they not only spoil the appearance, but also often interfere with everyday life due to poor location. Modern medicine offers many methods for removing these neoplasms. One of the most popular and most effective methods is removal using a high-frequency radio wave apparatus.

At Astghik MC, dermatologist Karen Hovsepyan conducts radio wave removal of neoplasms on the skin. For many years he worked in Moscow, but then he has decided to return to his homeland, to Armenia, and to find application for his knowledge and experience here.

The specialist told Medicine that the first and main advantage of radio wave removal of neoplasms is an excellent aesthetic result: the neoplasm that interferes with the patient is completely removed without leaving any scars. Moreover, the healthy tissues around the neoplasm are not damaged or deformed and the risk of relapse in this place is practically zero.

The removed tissues are also not damaged, and they can be sent for histological examination without any problems.

According to him, it is possible to remove both very small elements and 1-2-centimeter formations using this method.

Another advantage of the method is that there is no bleeding after it (during the procedure, the electrode coagulates small capillaries), and special care is not required: an aseptic dressing is applied to the treated area, and the patient returns home.

There are few contraindications for radio wave removal of neoplasms: first of all, the procedure is contraindicated for patients with decompensated diabetes mellitus, but if the patient successfully keeps the blood glucose level under control, after consultation with a specialist, he can go through the procedure.

In some cases, pacemakers and other similar structures of the patient's body may also be a contraindication. If such devices are available, the patient should consult with a specialist who can decide how to proceed.
