What is electrocautery?

Electrocautery is the use of an electric current that is converted into heat and passed through a fine tip in the treatment of acne.

It works by directly applying the heat to the acne lesion that exfoliates the skin and kills the bacteria. It also sometimes used to open our whiteheads (i.e. a type of acne lesion, are white bumps in our skin that are closed to the skin surface. Also called closed comedo) for the contents to be extracted in order to clear the lesion (i.e. a mark in the skin). Nevertheless, there exists a risk of scarring from this treatment that explained why it is not being considered as a main treatment for acne and is not often used.
