Electrocoagulation, sometimes called thermocoagulation, is an aesthetic technique that has been around for 60 years and is used to eliminate circulatory anomalies and skin irregularities through the use of a high-frequency, ultra-fast current.
Electrocoagulation is a permanent, non-invasive method that uses high heat produced by a high frequency electric current through a device called an HF Electrocoagulator.
This precise and meticulous technique is used to coagulate small capillaries or certain superficial skin imperfections in order to blur their appearance or eliminate them completely.
Electrocoagulation consists of depositing a thin filament on the surface of the skin, without pricking, providing a heat effect that effectively and painlessly destroys the following skin irregularities:
The skin is carefully removed.
The practitioner then gently applies the tip of the electrocoagulation stylet on the beginning of the vessel or on the skin irregularities and then triggers the radiofrequency current for a few seconds. He moves the stylet regularly in order to coagulate the vessel or cauterize the imperfection.
When the radiofrequency current is triggered, the patient may feel a localized heating or tingling sensation at the location of the stylet.
This treatment is effective, with rapid visible results. The treatment is fast, precise and without scars. In 15 minutes, up to 15 skin imperfections can be removed.
BEFORE : Avoid the sun one month before the treatment to avoid a pigmentary rebound (Hyperpigmentation). It will therefore be necessary to apply a sun cream (index 50+) during the day.
If your skin is damaged in the area where you need to have the treatment, it will be necessary to wait for the skin to be repaired.
PENDANT : This procedure is slightly painful. However, to reduce the pain, an anesthetic cream can be applied for 1 hour before the procedure, on the area to be treated.
The procedure lasts on average between 15 and 20 minutes.
APRÈS: You will have to apply for at least 5 days repairing cream to help your epidermis to remake itself quickly.
The sun is contraindicated as well as UV rays at least during the month following the last treatment. It is absolutely necessary to apply a sun cream (index 50+)
SUITS : There is no social eviction to be expected.
Your skin is slightly red and a tingling sensation may persist for a few hours.
In the 24 hours following the session, it is also possible to observe a slight swelling of the treated area or a feeling of heat.
Generally small Croutelles the size of a pinhead occur and disappear in 4 / 5 days without leaving a trace. It is absolutely necessary not to scratch them.
A period of 8 weeks is necessary for the complete healing of your skin.
It is important to know that the rate of reappearance of acrochordons, even after they have been removed, is high.
For couperose, a treatment every 3 weeks is recommended. This treatment is effective, with rapid visible results. On the other hand, a maintenance treatment should be performed every 2 years on average in order to maintain the results, as it does not prevent the appearance of new dilated vessels.
*The expected results may vary depending on each individual.
