Benign skin lesions on the face or on the body can often be experienced as disturbing. However, many skin defects can be easily and quickly removed by means of electrocoagulation. Electrocoagulation is a technique in which benign skin lesions are heated by means of an electric current. As a result, the benign skin lesions are destroyed and then rejected by the body. The tissue of the abnormality is heated very precisely, so that the healthy skin is minimally affected by the heat. Skin conditions that are suitable for coagulation include dermatosis papulosa nigra (small dark bumps, often on the face and neck), fibroids (cutaneous warts) and verruca seborrhoica (age-related warts).


Dermatosis papulosa nigra 

Dermatosis papulosa nigra are small dark brown to black colored skin lesions. They usually occur in people with dark skin. They look like small warts and are mainly located on the face and neck. 



Fibromas (steel warts)

Fibromas or skin warts are small skin-colored protrusions of the skin. Fibromas often occur in groups, but it can also be a single fibroid. You usually see fibroids in the neck and around the eyelids, but they also occur in the armpit, groin and under the breasts. And as you get older, it often increases.




Seborrheic warts

Seborrheic warts are round or oval, yellow-brown to brown-black, warts on the skin. They sometimes look a bit like a birthmark and have a rough surface. You usually see them from the age of 50. The preferred location of the seborrheic wart is the trunk and neck, but they also occur on the face, on the back or on the legs. The number of seborrheic warts you get, usually increases with age. 

Seborrheic warts are also called verruca seborrhoica.
