What is radiofrequency (radiowave) surgery?

Radio wave surgery uses the latest in diathermy technology, the Ellman Surgitron to literally shave the mole away until it is smooth with the skin surface. Radio frequency waves are high frequency wavelengths that generate minimal heat. The wavelength that is optimal for skin surgery which is similar to the frequency of marine band radios. When this wavelength is channeled through an electrode tip, it can cut the skin as well as simultaneously coagulate blood to produce a bloodless incision. Also, as it has minimal heat generated, surrounding tissues are unaffected and hence the surrounding tissues causing minimal damage to normal tissue.  And reduces the risk of scar formation. The only limitation of the Ellman for mole removal is that the mole must be above skin level.
