Electrofulguration is a technique often used in dermatologic surgery to provide superficial or deep coagulation or cutting of the skin. The skin has a poor conducting properties for the electrical flow of energy. Therefore, this energy builds up and is converted into heat. The endpoints of electrofulguration vary based on the waveform and result in either desiccation, coagulation, or sectioning of the skin. Electrofulguration is used for wart removal, darmatosis papulosa nigra (DPN), brown spot, syringoma, xantholesma etc.
