Thermocoagulation is the treatment or removal of unwanted skin imperfections or anomalies

 

The following skin imperfections are superficial which can be treated effectively by Thermocoagulation.

This process will improve the skin appearance by reducing or eliminating those unwanted imperfections. At ABC Aesthetics we are able to treat: visible facial veins or capillaries, skin tags, angiomas, milia, keratosis, angiokeratomas, open pores or unwanted piercings.

 

 

Thermocoagulation utilizes the High-Frequency Current to discharge pin-point heat energy to treat skin imperfections and collapse the spider veins upon contact.

The energy created by the high-frequency current produces a thermal lesion and the immediate disappearance of the imperfection or vein while preserving the epidermis.

All that may remain is a tiny circular red mark that disappears within hours post-treatment to leave a micro-crust which itself disappears usually in a matter of days.

 

The treatment is extremely safe and unlike other treatments does not pose risks of heat blisters or scarring.

Milia
Milia

Milia are small cysts that can appear just under the epidermis or on the roof of the mouth.

Enlarged pores
Enlarged pores

Visibly enlarged pores are pores that have had some sort of trauma.

Spider veins
Spider veins

Visible capillaries are dilated capillaries that have lost their elasticity and have become permanently enlarged. They may form linear, or as dots of redness. The name spider vein is given for the spider like appearance of some, with red centers and little tentacles emerging from the middle.

Unwanted piercing holes

Unwanted piercings are self explanatory. Most can be closed with the exception of large ear gauges.

Cherry angioma
Cherry angioma

Cherry Angiomas are also known as ruby points. Larger Angiomas are also referred to as Campbell spots. They are the most common vascular lesion; they consist of highly concentrated dilated capillaries and can be flat to the skin or larger and slightly raised (Campbell spot). Therefore their appearance is a cherry red to purplish colour.

Angiokeratomes
Angiokeratomes

Angiokeratomes are colourless mole like looking skin anomalies with the presence of capillaries.

Seborrheic Keratosis
Seborrheic Keratosis

Keratosis are also known as senile keratosis. Keratosis are common growths and are most common in adults over 30 years old and can be found on almost any area of the body. Keratosis can vary from light coloured to black, flat or raised anomalies with waxy or wart like appearance. They are harmless but we recommend that you get your keratosis evaluated by a doctor as they can be mistaken for skin cancer, especially if they bleed, itch, are irritated or inflamed on a regular basis.

Skin tags
Skin tags

Skin tags are benign flaps of skin. They are usually darker in colour than your natural skin and are often found on the neck and upper torso. Skin tags can be flat or protruding flaps of skin. These anomalies are found in women and men of all ages

Molluscum pendulum
Molluscum pendulum

Molluscum Pendulum are benign flaps of skin. They are usually darker in colour than your natural skin and are often found on the neck and upper torso. Molluscum Pendulums can be flat or protruding flaps of skin. These anomalies are found in women and men of all ages

Pigment
Pigment

Hyper-pigmentation often called age spots or liver spots. Mostly can be found in badly sun damaged skin.

Skin Tags around eye area
Skin Tags around eye area

A skin tag (acrochordon) is a small, soft, flesh-colored to dark brown growth that is either sessile or pedunculated. It is not skin cancer and does not become skin cancer. Skin tags are more common with increasing age. They appear most often in skin folds of the neck, axillae, trunk, beneath the breasts and in the groin area. They can become irritated by clothing or jewelry rubbing against them, and patients often want them removed.

Cherry angioma
Cherry angioma

Cherry angiomas are common skin growths that can develop on most areas of your body. They are also known as senile angiomas or Campbell de Morgan spots. They are usually found on people aged 30 and older. The broken blood vessels inside a cherry angioma give them a reddish appearance. This type of skin growth is typically not a cause for concern unless it bleeds often or changes in size, shape, or colour.
