Many are familiar with the problem of the appearance of papillomas on the skin. Some of them disappear on their own, others need compulsory therapy. Despite the fact that such a neoplasm creates an exclusively cosmetic problem for its “owner," the issue of removing skin defects is quite acute. Darsonvalization of skin defects has not yet received well-deserved distribution. For some patients, information about the possibility of removing papillomas with darsonval at home becomes a discovery.
Before considering the features of the procedure, contraindications and the effectiveness of the use of the darsonval apparatus, we determine what papilloma is.
Papilloma: concept and causes
Papilloma is a viral etymology that looks like a dense nodule or papilla. Often has a "leg", with which it is attached to the epithelium.
The cause of papillomatosis is infection with HPV (human papillomavirus). Attacking the human body, papillomavirus integrates into the DNA of epithelial cells, provoking their rapid growth. You can become infected with the human papillomavirus by contact-household or sexually. Contact with the carrier of the virus, use of general hygiene products, walking without rubber shale when visiting pools or saunas increases the risk of infection.
For a long time, papillomavirus may be in a latent state, the appearance of rashes on the skin is associated with the transition of the virus into the active phase. Failures in the body's immune defense due to:
- Respiratory diseases;
- Exacerbations of chronic diseases;
- Hormonal changes;
- Endocrine system diseases;
- Long-term use of steroid or antibacterial drugs.
The appearance and location of growths depends on the strain of papillomavirus. Today there are more than a hundred of them.
How to withdraw papillomas
Before treating neoplasms, it is worth consulting a dermatologist. He will clarify the diagnosis, reveal a tendency to transform papilloma cells into an oncological formation. In traditional medicine, such methods of getting rid of skin defects are widely used as:
- Laser destruction;
- Radio wave therapy;
Darsonval will help
The inventor of the device that helps remove unwanted defects is Jacques Arsene Darsonval. An outstanding scientist – physicist, doctor, physiotherapist, founder of electrocoagulation.
His research is aimed at studying the effects of electric current of various frequencies on the human body. He is considered the discoverer of the positive effect of alternating current on the epidermis. The method of therapy with electricity, proposed, studied and improved by Jacques Darsonval was named after the scientist.
The device for removing papillomas
The effect of using the Darsonval device is based on exposure to problem areas of the epithelium with a high-frequency pulse current. Among experts, there is no consensus on the effectiveness of treatment with papillomas using the Darsonval apparatus. The only thing that the supporters and opponents of the device agree on is its positive effect on the dermis in the postoperative period.
According to patients, the best results are shown by Darsonval therapy of small neoplasms on the skin, and not on the mucous membranes.
For therapy with papillomas, a droplet tip is used, ending with a special electrode for pinpointing the damaged area. The same nozzle is used to remove boils or inflammations of the skin. In addition to acting solely on the defect, such a nozzle produces a spark of greater power, which leads to the drying of the growth. The ability to control power allows you to increase the depth of exposure.
The duration of the procedure depends on the area of the damaged area and ranges from five to twenty minutes. To prevent unwanted effects, for example, the growth of unwanted hair provoked by exposure to electric current, it is recommended to conduct sessions every five to seven days. The course of treatment usually ranges from three to five procedures, in especially severe cases – ten to fifteen.
Darsonvalization provides a non-contact way of reducing papillomas. The distance between the nozzle and the neoplasm is one and a half to two centimeters.
Contraindications for the use of Darsonval therapy are similar to other electrical procedures in cosmetology. It:
- Oncological diseases;
- Pregnancy and lactation;
- Poor blood coagulation.
The network of pharmacies presents a wide selection of devices equipped with instructions for use. Most of them can be used independently at home. The device consists of a generator, transformer and nozzles for various procedures.
It is worth noting that the best treatment is prevention. To exclude recurrent rashes, it is necessary to follow the rules of hygiene, treat any skin lesions in time with antiseptic agents, and pay attention to strengthening immunity.
