VascuTouch is an “electrocoagulation” system, which quickly and effectively removes facial imperfections caused by sun damage, aging, genetics, medications, hormones, childbirth and skin trauma. VascuTouch is similar to traditional laser treatments in its results but does not cause bruising, scarring or skin discoloration. VascuTouch effectively treats a variety of skin conditions including broken capillaries, cherry angiomas (red dots or large red moles), milia (small, hard white bumps) and skin tags.
The VascuTouch procedure is safe and has been used for years. Because it is vessel specific and uses low levels of heat energy, it results in minimal skin reaction and the dermis is not affected. VascuTouch works through the combination of direct current and radio frequency ablation, which coagulates the skin imperfection. Most blemishes can be removed within seconds. Depending on the number of capillaries, milia and or skin tags, most conditions can be corrected in one to two 15-minute sessions.
Your Persona specialist will begin treatment by cleansing and prepping the skin and, if necessary, applying a topical anesthetic. A fine tipped sterile probe is then placed on the skin’s surface, above the vessel or blemish to be treated. There is no pressure and just a slight penetration of the skin during the treatment, while the blood in the tiny vessel is clotted or coagulated and stops flowing. Some patients say they experience a “pinprick” sensation, but most feel the procedure is comfortable and manageable.
