At Hotchandani Laser, Vein & Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Hotchandani uses a Hyfrecator (cautery) to remove moles that are benign and warts that are bothersome and persistent. Hyfrecator (cautery) allows for precise removal of abnormal tissue, while keeping normal tissue in tact. Dermatologist typically use liquid nitrogen or shaving technique, unfortunately, the results are not always precise and cosmetically appealing.
With Dr. Hotchandani’s surgical background, the moles can be excised meticulously under local anesthetic, but he prefers to use Hyfrecator for better cosmetic results, avoiding surgical scars. With any technique, there is a potential for recurrence or some scarring.*
