Fox Dermal Curette - 14cm round 3mm diameter

A Fox Dermal Curette with a round tip and a 3mm diameter is a specialized medical instrument used in dermatology for the removal of various skin lesions and abnormalities. Here's how it's typically used:

Lesion Removal: Dermatologists use the Fox Dermal Curette to remove benign lesions such as seborrheic keratoses, warts, skin tags, and other superficial growths from the skin. The rounded tip and precise diameter of the curette allow for controlled scraping and excision of the lesion.

Curettage: The primary technique associated with this instrument is called curettage. Curettage involves gently scraping the surface of the skin lesion to remove it. The rounded tip minimizes trauma to the surrounding healthy tissue while effectively removing the targeted lesion.

Biopsy: In some cases, dermatologists may use a dermal curette to obtain a skin biopsy specimen for diagnostic purposes. By carefully scraping the surface of a suspicious lesion, they can collect tissue samples for examination under a microscope.

Treatment of Actinic Keratosis: Actinic keratosis, a precancerous skin condition caused by sun damage, can be treated using a dermal curette. By gently scraping away the abnormal skin cells, dermatologists can help prevent the progression of actinic keratosis to skin cancer.

Cosmetic Procedures: Dermatologists may also use dermal curettes as part of cosmetic procedures, such as the removal of milia (small, white cysts) or the extraction of comedones (blackheads and whiteheads).
