VascuTouch works via electrocoagulation to cut off the blood supply to vascular blemishes and surface irregularities such as broken capillaries and skin tags. It is a quick and easy way to remove such imperfections without painful cutting or freezing.
Before treatment, the surface of the skin is cleansed and prepped with an antiseptic and sometimes a topical anesthetic. A fine tipped sterile probe is placed on the skin’s surface on the vessel or blemish to be treated. There is no pressure or penetration of the skin during the treatment, but instead, a combination of direct current and radiofrequency ablation is used to coagulate the vessels supplying the imperfection.
With the proper aftercare, 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.
VascuTouch can treat:
- Broken Capillaries on the cheeks and around the nose
- Cherry Angiomas – Cherry angiomas resemble red dots or large red moles.
- Milia – small, hard white bumps that resembles a stubborn whiteheads
- Skin Tags – hanging moles which are mostly around the neck, under the arms, or on the back.
We cannot and will not remove moles, as this should be done by a dermatologist. If you have questions, we are happy to do a free consultation to discuss your concerns!
