Electrocoagulation is a medical procedure for the removal or treatment of various types of skin formations - moles, warts, scars, some benign skin lesions, etc. For this purpose, electrical energy is used to heat and coagulate the tissue, effectively destroying or removing the unwanted skin growth.


The following skin lesions may be removed by electrocoagulation:

  • Fibroids; Viral warts;
  • Closed comedones;
  • Milia and bulky sebaceous glands;
  • Condylomas; Solar keratoses;
  • Keratoacanthomas;
  • Seborrheic verrucas;
  • Basaliomas, etc.

In the course of electrocoagulation of the listed pathological changes, the patient may feel slight to moderate burning sensation.


Before the procedure, the skin is cleaned. A local anesthetic may be applied to numb the area and minimize discomfort.


Electrocoagulation is performed by means of a diathermic current with special medical equipment. An active electrode in the form of a sphere, needle or scalpel is used. The type of electrode is determined depending on the condition and the purpose of the manipulation. The procedure can be used to completely remove the skin mass or to shrink and heal, at the discretion of your treating dermatologist.


When removing skin formations by electrocoagulation, a minor wound surface is created, which epithelizes for several days. Sometimes, after the procedure, it is possible to have small scars, which subsequently disappear.


Electrocoagulation is a relatively short in duration minimally invasive procedure that is performed in an outpatient setting by a highly trained dermatologist. It is important to consult a qualified medical professional to determine if this is the appropriate treatment for your particular condition.
