A friend and I we’re talking the other day and she told me that she has just undergone a cauterization. She developed warts in some areas on her face and she wanted removed, hence the need for cauterization. Of course I know what that meant but I wanted to find out more about it so I did some sleuthing since I didn’t want to bother the nearby dermatologist with my inquiry.
When I started my online sleuthing cauterization, for me, was just the process of burning or removing an undesired growth on the face just like warts. But as I entered the word cautery and hit “search”, I was bombarded with tons of results related to it like electrocautery, chemical cautery and even nasal cautery.
The latter, nasal cautery, is advisable for people who frequently experience nose bleeding. Chemical cautery, on the other hand, is the process of removing undesirable growth but then since chemicals are used for the process, it’s not highly advisable and thus laser or electrical cautery is most preferred by women and dermatologists.
