Short Wave Diathermy
Short wave diathermy is a quick and easy way to remove little skin blemishes and thread veins
During this treatment, we use a fine, hair-like needle to conduct a tiny energy current into broken capillaries, causing them to dry up, collapse and disappear.
We can also use this method on a skin tag and easily cauterise if off from the healthy skin.
After the treatment, your skin will be slightly pink from the heat and may be a little puffy in areas, although this will settle in a few hours. On day two or three post-treatment, you may notice tiny scabs forming but they will quickly fall off.
The number of treatments you will need will depend on the problem and how your skin reacts. We will be able to give you a much better idea about the technique we plan to use and treatment intervals after your initial consultation.
