Latest technology that treats skin imperfections quickly, precisely and gently.
Thermocoagulation is a minimally invasive technique most patients find to be quick & convenient, with minimal discomfort. Thermocoagulation is used for skin tags, telangiectasia, cherry angiomas and pigmentation.
The treatment is relatively quick, with minimal discomfort. A treatment session can take anywhere from 15 minutes to one hour depending on the size of the area being treated.
After treatment results can usually be seen immediately, with improvement over the following weeks. Swelling or redness can be noticed following treatment and the skin can remain sensitive for 4 to 7 days. This is a normal part of the healing process. It is important to not scratch or rub the treated area, as this can lead to longer healing times.
Avoid sun exposure up to 48 hours before and 72 hours after treatment to avoid brown spots and provoking blood vessel formation. Sun block is recommended.
You are not a good candidate for Thermocoagulation if you have: cancer, HIV, a pace maker or similar cardiac (heart) device; have a history or present diagnosis of epilepsy (seizures); are pregnant; have an allergy to metals, specifically nickel, are diabetic (insulin) or take anticoagulants.
