Thermal-Coagulation uses a small Probe and Radio High Frequency to cauterize spots in the Epidermal layer of the skin. The treatments usually do not leave a scar, due to staying in the upper most layers of the skin. The skin heals similar to a small scratch or surface burn, pink when first healed, then returns to normal skin tone typically over 7-21 days, depending on the size of the area treated. Due to size or thickness, some spots may need more than one treatment.
Thermal-Coagulation works very well for cosmetic purposes and quickly removes:
raised, rough skin lesions referred to as keratosis
brown pigmented spots
red cherry angiomas
The number of treatments needed to clear or improve condition differs from patient to patient, depending on a number of variables including, but not limited to, skin color, age, hormonal status, inherited conditions, and the size /condition of the area to be treated.
Follow-up treatments may be necessary to achieve optimal results. Most patients require a number of treatments over several months with gradual results occurring over time.
