Questions and Answers About VascuTouch
Q How long does the treatment take?
A Most blemishes are removed in seconds. Depending on the number of capillaries most conditions can be successfully and permanently treated in one ten to fifteen minute treatment.
Q Is the procedure safe?
A Typically, telangiectasias are very superficial and can be treated with a sterile, disposable probe. Electrocoagulation has been used safely for years to remove vascular blemishes.
Q Does it hurt?
A Some experience a “pinprick” sensation that can be mildly uncomfortable. However, when a topical anesthetic cream is applied to the area most of the discomfort is taken away.
Q What other methods can be used to treat vascular blemishes?
A Many physicians use a hyfrecation device. A hyfrecator applies a high voltage of RF (radio frequency) current to the surface of the skin. This method tends to be very painful and often scars surrounding tissue. Another method is laser treatment. Though painful and very expensive, the appropriate laser can be quite effective in treating vascular blemishes.
How Is It Done?
The surface of the skin is cleansed and prepped. A fine tipped sterile probe is placed on the surface of the blemish. Low level RF and DC current is passed through the probe to the vessel. 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.
What About “Post” Treatment Care?
The VascuTouch electrocoagulates each tiny vessel and the blood stops flowing. You need to pay attention not to disturb the treated vessels for 24 hours. Undue stress could cause renewed blood flow and the vessel will not dry up and be absorbed. With proper care, the treated vessel will tend to look darker the next day. This is normal and a good sign that the vessel was properly treated.
Yes!Skin tags, no matter where they are located on the body can be treated in minutes with the VascuTouch and fall off within 3 to 4 days.
What Are Vascular Blemishes?
Broken capillaries and spider veins are classified in medical terminology as “telangiectasias”. There are many different names associated with these lesions, including “Blood Mole”, “Blood Dot”, as well as the cosmetic/aesthetic term, “Couperose Skin”. Blood moles resemble a red dot or patch and can appear nearly anywhere on the body. Capillaries under the eye or around on the nose as well as as the neck or upper chest are vascular blemishes treatable with the Vascutouch.
How Did I Get Them?
Heredity seems to be the most popular theory. It is noted that those with fair skin have a higher incidence of telangiectasia while more olive complexions have fproblems. Other contributing theories include age, hormones, sun exposure, alcohol consumption and other predisposing medical conditions. Trauma to the skin may also cause telangiectasia to develop. Whatever their origin, these vascular blemishes can be removed easily and permanently with a device called VascuTouch™.
