Curettage and Cautery

Curettage and cautery is a procedure in which the dermatologist scrapes off a skin lesion and applies heat to the skin surface to stop bleeding and to destroy any remaining skin cancer cells.

Skin lesions commonly treated:

  • Actinic keratoses
  • Warts
  • Skin tags removal
  • Non-melanoma skin cancers
  • Seborheic keratoses
