What is a Thermocoagulation therapy & how does it work?
Thermocoagulation therapy uses a mild current to induce coagulation while removing the unwanted skin irregularity. During the treatment the stylus touches the skin surface of the dilated capillary or spot with hyper-pigmentation. Many vascular blemishes, skin tags and brown spots disappear on contact and once treated it will never come back.
What type of skin irregularities can be removed?
• Broken capillaries
• Skin tags
• Aging spots
• Ruby points
• Sun spots
• Spider veins
• Cholesterol deposits
Will there be any scarring?
No. Thermocoagulation only works in the upper most layers of the skin, so there is no visible scarring.
How long do the treatments take?
Sessions are between 5 to 20 minutes in length. Most conditions are effectively treated in 1- 3 sessions. This is one of the benefits of Thermocoagulation therapy – it is fast and effective!
Is it really permanent?
Both treated broken capillaries and skin tags will not return in the same spot. New ones may appear elsewhere should one be prone to getting them. Although there will be some redness around the area that was worked on, the spots will be gone after the first treatment. Final results are achieved in 3-21 days – quicker on the face, a little longer on the body.
Who should not receive this treatment?
People with diabetes, epilepsy, anyone on blood thinner, anticoagulation or use a pace maker, and pregnant women. Thermocoagulation therapy involves the use of radiofrequency and DC current, therefore, those with pacemakers cannot undergo treatment. Since the procedure coagulates the blood, people on anti-coagulates, or who have circulatory disorders would not see the desired results.
