THERMOCOAGULATION: WHAT IS IT? AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
Thermocoagulation is a safe and non-invasive specific treatment to rid of skin tags and minor skin anomalies. This treatment uses a high frequency current with its effects are based on heat. “Thermo”=HEAT, “Coagulation”= CAUTORIZE. The preciseness of the treatment helps protect the integrity of the surrounding tissue.
BEFORE & AFTER
ANGIOMAS: common skin growths consisting of a collection of small blood vessels that can appear any where on the body. Typically not a cause for concern, unless they bleed or change in size, shape or color. Contact your Doctor if you have these symptoms.
SPIDER ANGIOMA (BEFORE)
CHERRY ANGIOMA (ruby spot, red dots)
TELANGIECTASIA ; Fine broken capillaries, spider veins
Often occur in fair-skinned individuals. Several factors contribute to their development.
*genetics* sun ,wind exposure (outdoor lifestyle) *medications*pregnancy*excessive alcohol consumption*acne*prolonged use of oral or topical corticosteroids*menopause*birth control pills. These factors may cause the formation of these facial telangiectasia..
*NOTE this particular client has an outdoor lifestyle and weather conditions were the main cause in this case. This was the the first of two treatments needed in this particular case. Second treatment was done 6 weeks later. Touch-ups in the future are recommended as new Telangiectases appear.
Darker Spots, Brown Spots, Skin tags, Freckles
DARKER SPOTS/BROWN SPOTS (BEFORE)
Skin tags: They are small flaps of skin tissue, ranging from a few millimeters to , in extreme cases as big as half and inch. Skin tags can either occur in a casual cluster or alone. They can rest directly on the skin or look like they are hanging form a tiny stalk. Typically they match the color of your skin, however, some may be dark. Good news, they are not dangerous!

Strict post-care protocol is imperative for optimal healing. CONTACT Liza personally anytime if you have any concerns regarding post-care or refer to the post care instructions BELOW.

Post-Care of Thermocoagulation Treatments
You will be provided with a mini take home kit and instructions for post-care. Your specific expectations of this service will be discussed during initial consultation. A solution/ recommendation will be provided.
For best results: Keep treatment area as dry as possible. Depending on size/area/anomalie treated. Day 2-3 , area may become/ appear /feel slightly irritated (itchy.) It is part of the healing process.
Do not pick or scratch scabs. Scabs will form from anywhere from day 5-7-10. The longer the scab stays on , the better. You may at this time apply recommended Moor Spa Soothing Lotion ( Purchase from me) or dab with certified
organic coconut oil. That will help the scab not dry out and fall off too fast. It will nourish the new cells as they are regenerating underneath!
Anomalies removed from the underarm or upper body, loose clothing is recommended for comfort.
Please check in with me at the one week post treatment and text me a photo of healing. I will follow up with a personal phone assessment.
Healing time for this procedure is a full 28 days for cell turnover. Blemishes can sometimes take longer to heal, depending on skin type and post skincare home regimen. You will not scar.
If an area needs a second treatment which it may, depending on size/area/type of anomalie, it can be done 4-6 weeks post first treatment.
A combination of patience, good post-care and a great esthetician=results!
DISCLAIMER; I am a Licensed Esthetician, Certified in Thermocoagulation. This is a clinical service. It is a treatment meant specifically for skin tags and minor anomalies. (Brown spots, skin tags, spider veins, cherry angiomas, red spots) Results for areas I treat are extremely successful and non-invasive.
I do not perform mole removal with this treatment. I recommend your Family Physician for that particular concern. If your Doctor deems there is no concern with the health of your mole, and you still want it removed, your Doctor will recommend your next step.
