Benign hyperplasias of the skin such as warts and seborrheic keratoses are easily treated with electrocautery. A local anesthetic is applied before treatment, which makes the whole process relatively painless.

Electrocautery is a common therapeutic option, with excellent safety and efficacy, when applied by a specialist physician in selected cases.
