VascuTouch will effectively treat a variety of skin conditions. VascuTouch is a new “electrocoagulation” system, which will quickly and effectively remove unsightly facial growths caused by sun damage, aging, genetics, medications, hormones, childbirth, skin trauma and alcohol consumption. VascuTouch produces comparable results as traditional laser treatments, without bruising, scarring, skin discoloration or higher treatment cost. Whatever their origin, vascular blemishes are easily and permanently removed with the VascuTouch.
- Broken Capillaries: Broken capillaries are small facial veins commonly observed on the cheeks and around the nose
- Cherry Angiomas: Cherry angiomas resemble red dots or large red moles. They are also known as blood blisters and are usually found on the torso.
- Milia: Milia are a small, hard white bump that resembles a stubborn whitehead. Milia are usually located on the forehead.
- Skin Tags: Skin tags are hanging moles which are mostly around the neck area.
- Sunspots: Sunspots are small brown spots caused by repeated exposure to UV rays.
Is the procedure safe?
Yes, this procedure is very safe and has been used safely for years. This treatment is self limiting and vessel specific, resulting in minimal skin reaction and because low treatment energy is used, the dermis is not affected and scarring or other major reactions do not occur.
How does the VascuTouch work?
A combination of direct current and radio frequency ablation is used to coagulate or melt off the skin imperfection.
How is VascuTouch procedure done?
The surface of the skin is cleansed and prepped with a microdermabrasion, and, if necessary, a topical anesthetic is applied. A fine tipped sterile probe is placed on the skin’s surface, above the vessel or blemish to be treated. There is no pressure or penetration of the skin during the treatment. The blood in the tiny vessel is clotted or coagulated and stops flowing.
With the proper “post” treatment care the vessel is naturally absorbed into the surrounding tissue and typically within three to four weeks will disappear. Skin tags are treated in minutes with the VascuTouch and fall off within three to four days.
How long does a VascuTouch treatment take?
Most blemishes are removed in seconds. Depending on the number of capillaries, most conditions can be corrected in one or two 15 minute sessions.
Does it hurt?
Some experience a “pinprick’ sensation that can be mildly uncomfortable. However, when a topical aesthetic cream is applied to the area most of the discomfort is taken away.
What about “post” treatment care?
Pay close attention not to disturb the treated vessels for twenty-four hours. Undue stress could cause renewed blood flow and the vessel will not dry up and absorb. With proper care the treated vessel will look darker the next day. This is normal and a good sign that the vessel was properly treated. Topical healing cream and sunscreen is also recommended.
