Diathermocoagulation is an invasive technique in which a needle is used to cauterize various lesions on the surface of the skin. In diathermocoagulation we use an electric current which is passed through a needle directly to the skin lesion and destroys it.
With diathermocoagulation we can eliminate lesions such as small choroidal hemangiomas, papillomas, hyperkeratosis, sebaceous hyperplasia and others. The treatment is minimally invasive and causes only a slight momentary burning sensation on the skin. Therefore, the whole procedure can be carried out either with the use of a local anaesthetic cream or with a local injection of xylocaine , in which case it is extremely well tolerated. Contraindications to the use of transfusion are the presence of a cardiac pacemaker or defibrillator.
