WHAT IS THERMOCOAGULATION?
Thermocoagulation is a non-surgical procedure that will improve the appearance of your skin by reducing or eliminating unwanted skin anomalies or blemishes. Christa has been specializing in Microscopic Thermocoagulation since 2011.
HOW DOES THERMOCOGULATION WORK?
Thermocoagulation treats the anomaly using high-frequency current. It’s effects are based on heat which coagulates the anomalies and your body naturally does the rest. The current is restricted to the target area making sure that tissue damage to the surrounding areas are limited.
WHAT KIND OF SKIN ANOMALIES CAN YOU TREAT?
WHAT BODY AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
All body areas can be safely treated, including the eyes.
HOW LONG DOES THE PROCEDURE TAKE?
Depending on the size, skin tags and moles will only require 1-2 minutes each to treat. Keratosis may require longer sessions which can be determined at your free consultation.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Many smaller anomalies will only require 1 treatment. Larger ones that don't go away completely with one treatment will shrink in size but may require a follow up treatment to remove completely. These sessions are spaced 2-3 weeks apart.
DOES IT LEAVE A SCAR?
Most of the anomalies will heal and you will never know they were ever there. For very large anomalies or very dark anomalies, there may be a slight pink mark that will fade with time. Keratosis removal will often leave this pink mark.
IS THERMOCOAGULATION EXPENSIVE?
Treatments start at $50 plus tax for a certain block of time.
SKIN TAGS & MOLES
Skin tags are small soft growth that protrudes from the surrounding skin. They can be large, small, flat or raised. They can be found anywhere on the body but will generally will appear in areas with rubbing (neck, underarms, groin). They are also found on the eyelids. We can safely treat any area including the face. We can also remove anal skin tags but this area has an additional charge.
Hyperpigmentation is a darkened spot on the skin. We are able to lighten or remove these spots depending on the size and darkeness.
Milia are caused by a clogged sweat gland. The gland fills with a small ball of keratin which feels like a small grain under your skin. These are white in appearance and are usually found under the eyes, cheeks and chin. These are not to be mistaken for Xanthelasma which are larger and have a yellow tinge. Xanthelasma has been known to reduce in size after thermocoagulation treatments but a doctors note is required if it is not a milia.
Keratosis looks like a waxy mole or wart with a skin color or brown tinge with a slightly raised appearance. They tend to appear on the face, torso and back. This anomaly will leave a slight pink scar that will fade with time.
Spider veins are red and usually appear on the cheeks, nose and neck. They are visible dilated capillaries that have a spider like appearance, usually with a red center and little tentacles that move away from the middle. The results are instant but you must be gentle with the area afterwards. This area may require short but frequent appointments as not to over treat the area.
We offer a free, no obligation consultation to examine the anomaly and ensure it is safe to treat. We will then explain the process and after care regimen to you. We reserve optional time if you decide to have a treatment the same day. Please contact us to book.
