Thermo-coagulation is a treatment for removal of unwanted skin imperfections and anomalies. These include skin tags, milia, telangiectasis (broken capillaries) and cherry angioma (ruby points). It safe for all skin types, even sensitive skin. This treatment can be performed on any part of the face and body, although there may be some restrictions. A consultation is required in-person or virtually prior to any treatment to ensure this is a correct procedure for you.
HOW IT WORKS
The thermocoagulation uses a high frequency current that is discharged through a fine needle, delivering heat energy to destroy the skin imperfection. This will dry up the anomaly and will cause a minor red mark that disappears in a few hours post treatment.
Although results are seen instantly, it can take 1-3 treatments for stubborn or larger anomalies. There is minimal discomfort with treatment and not many side effects.
Immediately following the treatment, you may experience some swelling and redness around the treated anomaly. The anomaly will also look scabbed, crusted, or even heightened in color. The swelling and redness is known to dissipate after 24-48 hours, on the contrary the scab can last up to 72 hours or more. It is strongly recommend to avoid direct sun exposure, hot water and aerobic exercise for roughly 24-72 hours (but can vary from person to person).
Skin tags are flaps of skin that are usually darker than your skin colour and can commonly be found on the face, neck, underarms and torso. They can either be flat or have a base. Depending on the number and size of skin tags, they can be permanently removed within one treatment. The current from the probe is applied around the tag allowing it to dry up and fall off within a week post treatment. Large tags can take up to three treatments to fall off.
Milia are small hard white bumps, resembling white heads, that are typically found on the face around the eyes and nose. These are generally caused by dead skin build up. Thermocoagulation can be used to treat this condition by using the current from the probe to soften the debris and extract the milia. The healing time for this particular anomaly can take up to a few weeks. A consultation is strongly recommended to ensure this is the correct treatment for you.
Telangiectasis is a condition of visibly dilated blood vessels on the skin, commonly found around the nose and cheekbones. They are also commonly known as broken capillaries. They look like thin red lines and often come in clusters. Treatment using thermo-coagulation allows blockage in the capillary by coagulating a small part in the vessel, and is completely safe. It is advised not to exfoliate the skin or have a facial for a minimum of two weeks post treatment.
Cherry angioma's, which are commonly known as ruby points, are small red dots that appear with age and can grow in size. They are highly concentrated dilated capillaries and are usually flat on the skin. They appear on most parts of the body but are more commonly seen on the torso. Clients typically see results with one treatment, but depending on the size of the ruby point, it can take up to three treatments.
