What happens after I get my mole removed by electrocautery?

Electrocautery of Mole
A mole removed by electrocautery is a standard method of removing a mole by heat. To make sure that the mole heals well I would continue to do traditional wound therapy by keeping the area cleaned and covered and apply aquaphor and change the dressing at least twice a day.
Electrocautery is basically burning the mole off
