Thermocoagulation is a safe, comfortable non-surgical cosmetic procedure using a tiny pinpoint probe, gently applied to the skin treats various types of benign lesions. This treatment is not a laser but uses high-frequency energy so only a slight heat prickly sensation is felt. Whereas lasers are attracted to color contrast in the skin, thermocoagulation is attracted to the water on the surface layer of the epidermal tissue. The pinpoint probe precisely targets the lesion leaving the surrounding skin untouched. The treated lesion dehydrates and crusts immediately during treatment then exfoliates and sloughs off during the healing process, approximately 7 to 10 days. Safe for delicate areas around the eyes, thermocoagulation effectively treats lesions on the scalp without destroying any hair or inhibiting hair growth.
Brown spots and pigmentation will first darken, then lighten during the healing and cell renewal process. The treated lesion dehydrates, crusts, exfoliates and sloughs off. Pigmentation in brown spots are situated within layers of the skin, darker spots will require more than one treatment spaced at least 30 days apart.
Vascular lesions, such as spider veins or red cherry angiomas, the tiny pinpoint probe precisely targets the broken capillary or red mole causing it to blanch, dehydrate and shrink. It is then absorbed and eliminated through the lymphatic system. During this time, spider veins may temporarily darken and look similar to a cat scratch. You may notice some fine scabbing for a few days in the area treated, at this time it can be covered with mineral makeup. Thermocoagulation works great to treat most superficial facial veins. If the skin is experiencing overall redness or rosacea, IPL (Intense Pulse Light) laser treatment is the best option. Thermocoagulation is ideal to treat any remaining stubborn veins after IPL Laser Facial. Spider veins located on the legs, laser treatment or sclerotherapy are required.
Thermocoagulation is purely a cosmetic procedure and therefore not covered under the provincial medical service plan (MSP) and treatments are not covered through any extended health care plan.
