Thermo Coagulation is the term used for the heating of tissues for various different purposes. At Essence Of L Medi Spa Thermo Coagulation is used in the treatment of skin tags (Acrochordon) , Whiteheads (Milia) and Facial thread veins (Telangiectasia).
Skin Tags are soft flesh coloured or deeply pigmented harmless skin growths which are raised above the surrounding skin. They may have a thin stalk so that the skin tag hangs from the skin. They can range in size from 1mm to 1cm and can vary quite a bit in appearance. They are most commonly found on the eyelids, neck, beneath the breasts, under the arms and groin area. It is thought that they are caused by friction, hereditary factors, where there is a thickened skin due to sundamage and people who are overweight tend to aquire more of these. They are treated very easily and successfully with Thermo Coagulation.
Facial thread veinsor otherwise known as telangiectasia appear most commonly as a result of medication, hormone changes during pregnancy/menopause, post Radiation therapy, Hereditary or sundamage to the skin over time. They appear as bright Red or Purple little lines or dots on the skin. A Spider telangiectasia, also known as a Spider Naevus is a telangiectasia with a red central feeding vessel with little branches of vessels radiating outwards from the centre. Thermo Coagulation is excellent for the removal of Facial and Spider telangiectasia.
Milia are small spherical, pearl like bumps which are visible through the epidermal (surface) layers of the skin tissue. The cause is thought to be due to an accumulation of dead skin cells below the epidermis. This can happen as a result of sun damage where the skins surface has become thickened, or the use of heavy oil based cosmetics which creates a film over the skins surface or blocks the pores of the skin. I have perfected my own method of treating Milia over the years using Thermo Coagulation.
