Thermocoagulation uses a high-frequency current to coagulate targeted tissue on contact. The current passes through a fine needle, producing the ideal temperature to burn away imperfections while preserving the epidermis.
This safe and proven outpatient procedure is used on skin imperfections and other vascular lesions, such as skin tags, spider veins, and angiomas. Also, it’s fast, gentle, minimally invasive, and causes only slight discomfort.
Each treatment takes between 15 to 30 minutes, and most conditions are treated within one to three sessions.
Finally, there is also no downtime, bruising or scarring or hyper-pigmentation post treatment, so it’s a popular treatment option.
First, we coagulate the capillary`s dilated section, causing the blood to solidify. This interrupts the blood flow, redirecting it to the closest capillaries. Once treated, healing is quick, taking within 5 to 21 days.
This treatment causes no scar tissue, but there is some imperceptible scabbing, usually the size of a pinpoint. Scabs fall off during the healing window (5-21), leaving healthy skin in its place.
* After your treatment, cleanse and dry the area gently, using fingers and a mild face wash.
* If the area ever feels hot or irritated, apply cold compresses.
* Avoid touching, stretching, or otherwise manipulating the treated skin.
* Also, for 48 hours following the treatment, refrain from strenuous physical activities, swimming pools, saunas, and whirlpools.
* Never remove or pick at scabs; they will fall off within 5 to 21 days.
* Additionally, try to avoid sun exposure and tanning salons or, if that’s impossible, apply total sunblock on the treated area.
* Finally, it’s okay to apply makeup over the treated skin, just be sure to wash it off before bed.
