Wrinkle Subcision

Our doctor uses FDA approved subcision instruments to permanently treat fine lines and deep wrinkles using some of the highest quality surgical equipment today. This procedure is quick and painless with results to last a long period of time. Our physician will analyze your skin folds and wrinkles beforehand to see if you are a good candidate for this treatment effectively planning this treatment, marking key areas on your skin before any injection has occurred.

Using a sharp needle with stainless steel wire, the wire is thread through your skin and around the surrounding wrinkle, effectively separating the skin from the muscle which releases the wrinkle, and the wrinkle disappears. Full muscular movement is a bonus with wrinkle subcision, unlike certain popular injections which freeze the site to gain cosmetic results. Natural, long lasting results without dependency on regular injections is what you should expect from this therapy for cost effective anti-aging for anyone’s budget.

Facial Spider Veins: Electrosurgery

Electrosurgery is not a new technology, but its continual advancements and increasingly recognized benefits have led to electrosurgical devices being utilized more heavily now than ever before. Bovie, and electrosurgery, have been in practice for almost a century, and today electrosurgery is an important element of any surgeon's practice. With the advent of the well-informed patient who has access to unprecedented amounts of medical information, electrosurgery has grown in demand, making it an important source of revenue. Physicians can translate this demand into a profit by utilizing a High Frequency Desiccator, we are able to treat a wide array of skin conditions.

The Hyfrecator is used, to cut, coagulate, desiccate, or fulgurate biological tissue with widespread applications for basic plastic surgery treatments as well as a treatment for skin treatments like mole and lesion removal, many physicians are using electrosurgery as a go-to procedure for dermatological procedures. Patient benefits include precise incisions with reduced bleeding and less discomfort at the incision site, resulting in increased patient satisfaction as the physicians reap financial rewards. Commonly used for removal of skin tags and removal of benign skin tumors.

Common Uses

  • Cutting: The use of a fine electrode tip, which advances through tissue by creating pockets of steam, allows the operator to produce a smooth cut with minimal pressure.
  • Coagulate: In some circumstances, physicians will apply the electrode tip either directly or indirectly to a blood vessel in order to produce clotting. This works most effectively on vessels less than two (2) to three (3) millimeters in diameter. Electrocoagulation is effective in both deep and superficial surgery.
  • Dessication: This term was first used in 1914 by William Clark to describe the destruction of tissue. He became the first American to routinely use this process to remove malignant growths of the skin, head, neck, breast, and cervix. Bovie improved these early processes, but electrodessication is still utilized for to remove skin growths. In a modern electrodessication procedure, an active electrode is either applied or inserted into the affected skin area in order to destroy the tissue targeted for removal.
  • Fulguration: Fulguration is an electrosurgial procedure used to treat skin conditions that are more superficial than those treated with electrodessication, such as a superficial basal cell carcinoma. In fulgration, the electrode is held away from the skin, and sparking produces a shallower tissue destruction than in a dessication.

Why Electrosurgery?

Electrosurgery is an evolving field, and its applications are expanding rapidly. Electrosurgical incisions show a comparable infection rate to those of scalpel, and lower post-surgical pain scores even in deep tissue procedures. Faster incision times and reduced blood loss are also factors that have contributed to the gain in popularity.

Electrosurgery for Skin Conditions

Electrosurgery is gaining recognition for its value in the treatment of skin conditions. It has replaced the scalpel in many procedures, including the removal of benign and malignant skin lesions, and the increasing awareness of the approach's benefits suggest that this role will only increase. Future trends may see electrode fully replace the scalpel in even deep surgical procedures as both patients and physicians opt for it in the operating room.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is electrosurgery?

Electrosurgery is the application of a high-frequency electric current to biological tissue as a means to cut, coagulate, desiccate, or fulgurate tissue. Its benefits include the ability to make precise cuts with limited blood loss. Electrosurgical devices are frequently used during surgical operations helping to prevent blood loss in hospital operating rooms or in outpatient procedures.

What is subcision and how does it work?

Subcision is a minor surgical procedure used for treating depressed cutaneous scars and wrinkles. It is also called subcutaneous incisional surgery. Subcision is performed using a special hypodermic needle inserted through a puncture in the skin surface. The sharp edge of the needle is used to break fibrotic strands that are tethering the scar to the underlying tissue. The release of the fibrotic strands and new collagen deposition caused by wound healing leads to cosmetic improvement of the scar. Subcision can be safely performed in the outpatient setting and is usually well tolerated.
