Treatment of millia, skin tags, moles, broken capillaries & cherry angiomas.
What is Diathermy?
Diathermy is a medical technique that involves the use of a high-frequency electrical current to produce intense heat to a specified treatment area. This intense heat is able to destroy unhealthy or unwanted tissue such as skin tags and moles or can be used to clot blood which effectively reduces the appearance of broken capillaries.
The device itself is a small handpiece that delivers the electrical current through a probe the size of an eyelash. This means that the treatment is very precise and only the targeted tissue is affected, therefore the risk of scarring or post-inflammatory pigmentation is very unlikely.
Is It Painful?
The discomfort of the procedure depends on the area being treated and the type of lesion being treated. Raised lesions such as skin tags may feel like a slight stinging sensation, whereas flat lesions or sensitive areas can feel a fair bit warmer.
Most people, however, are able to tolerate the discomfort fairly well and in cases of severe sensitivity, a topical numbing agent can be applied prior to treatment.
What can I expect following the procedure?
Following a diathermy treatment, most lesions will immediately appear white or grey, with the surrounding skin appearing pink. Then in the days after treatment, lesions can darken or appear to become dry or scab-like. This skin should not be picked at or irritated. The affected tissue generally dries up and falls off after 7-10 days. If all aftercare instructions are followed, the treated area should look completely untouched and clear of any blemishes.
