·       broken capillaries and blood vessels on the face and upper chest.

·         ruby points on the body

·         skin tags on the body

·         blotches on the face and upper chest

·         spider angioma

Q: What are broken capillaries?

A: Broken capillaries are tiny dilated blood vessels that are visible through the skin. They become more common as we age and our skin loses its elasticity. The factors that can promote their formation are: excessive exposure to the sun, drastic change in temperature, alcoholic beverages, hot and spicy foods…

Once they form, broken capillaries will not disappear on their own.

Q: Is it really permanent?

A: Treated capillaries or skin tags will not return. New ones may appear somewhere else.

Q: How does the electrocoagulation work?

A: It uses a mild current to induce coagulation within the distended capillary. The body then absorbs the unused capillary. This treatment is called Capillary Coalysis, the process by which unsightly, distended capillaries are absorbed and eliminated by the body.

Q: Is the treatment painful?

A: This non-invasive procedure is virtually painless. It uses mild currents that have been employed in the esthetic world for more than four decades.

Q: How long do the treatments take?

A: Sessions are between five and fifteen (15) minutes in length. Most conditions are effectively treated in one session.

Q: What is Spider Angioma?

A: Spider angioma is an abnormal collection of blood vessels near the surface of the skin. The appearance is often similar to that of a small spider web.

A spider angioma lesion typically has a red dot in the center with reddish extensions radiating out for some distance around it . Spider angiomas can occur anywhere but are most common on the face and trunk. Spider angiomas are very common and are especially prevalent during pregnancy and in patients with liver disease.

Q: Is electrocoagulation safe?

A: The treatment is performed by professionally certified technicians, who observe the strictest standard of hygiene. Skin reaction after the treatment is minimal and disappears after a few days.
