Parksville Thermocoagulation

If you’ve been living with an unwanted skin anomaly thermocoagulation can help. Skin tags, spider veins, ruby points, dilated capillaries, calcium deposits and cholesterol deposits can all be treated with this non-invasive, advanced treatment.

At Elegance Sculpting in Parksville, BC, we utilize the VascuLyse 2G thermocoagulation technology which uses an RF current generating heat energy to pin point and activate coagulation in the capillaries. By raising the temperature of the blood in capillaries, thermocoagulation causes them to coagulate and break down. During the body’s natural healing process, the treated area will scab and fall off within three to 21 days, taking the skin anomaly with it.

The number of treatments required is dependent on each individual and the skin anomaly they wish to remove. A complimentary consultation is included at the beginning of every thermocoagulation treatment to ensure your full comfort before committing to the procedure. This treatment is safe, effective and considered a lunch time treatment. To learn more, scroll down to our FAQ section or book your consultation by clicking below.

As with any new treatment, please consult your family doctor.

How many thermocoagulation treatments will I need?2022-10-25T15:20:27-04:00

The number of thermocoagulation treatments required varies based on individual and the skin anomaly being treated; however, typically our clients see optimal results with one to three treatments. During your complimentary consultation, our team will better be able to estimate how many treatments will be required. 

How long are thermocoagulation treatments?2022-10-25T15:19:00-04:00

Thermocoagulation treatments for skin  anomalies are extremely efficient, typically taking between five and fifteen minutes. Please note that your first treatment with the Elegance Sculpting team will be slightly longer to also include a consultation.

Does thermocoagulation hurt? 2022-10-25T15:17:34-04:00

This is a completely non-invasive procedure that is relatively painless. The mild energy currents may cause a slight pricking sensation, but is often not described as painful. 

Is there downtime associated with thermocaogulation? 2022-10-25T15:16:51-04:00

Thermocoagulation is considered a lunchtime treatment, meaning there is little to no downtime required. It is extremely important that the micro-crust or scabs that form are not touched or removed. They will fall off on their own within three and 21 days, when the body has completed the healing process. Please note, treatment areas closer to the heart, heal faster. For instance, skin anomalies on the legs will take longer to heal. If the treated skin anomaly is on the face, cleanse the area gently using fingers and a mild facial cleanser. You may still wear makeup over the treatment area, but be gentle. Avoid any facials until the natural healing process has been completed. If the treatment area feels irritated or hot, apply a cold compress. Refrain from any strenuous physical activity, tanning beds, saunas, swimming pools or baths for 48 hours to ensure optimal healing. Apply a moisturizing heading cream four to five times a day. As always, wear an SPF of 30 or more over the treatment area.

Our team at Elegance has completed the certifications with the strictest standards of hygiene and safety to ensure our clients have complete confidence before, during and after their treatments.

How does thermocoagulation work?2022-10-25T15:14:35-04:00

Using high frequency currents, our thermocoagulation VascuLyse 2G RF technology is able to pin point heat energy to unwanted skin imperfection. The thermal lesion produced from this process leads to the nearly immediate elimination of the imperfect (or vein) while leaving the epidermis unharmed. The dilated section of the capillary being treated is first coagulated to solidify the blood. With the blood for interrupted at the treatment section, it will be redirected to neighbouring capillaries. Post-treatment, clients are typically will see a circular red mark at the treatment site which will turn into a micro-crust. Once this micro-crust sheds (typically within three to 21 days, do not pick at it early), the skin will heal with little risk of scarring. This is a permeant treatment.
