Electrocoagulation Frequently Asked Questions:
- What is Electrocoagulation?
Electrocoagulation is known also as electrolysis, thermolysis or diathermy (means “electrically induced heat”).
Electrocoagulation is a technique used for minor skin blemishes, outlined below, that uses the same probe as used for electrolysis to coagulate blood and diffuse blemish. Quantity and length of treatments is determined at a consultation. Proper before and after care is imperative due to the sensitive nature of the skin.
A needle is used to transmit current to tissues. Molecules within the tissue are caused to vibrate which lead to a rapid increase of the temperature, causing coagulation of the proteins/blood vessels/broken capillaries within the tissue (which literally cooks the veins or the vessels from inside out) and cause them to dissolve and disappear. In other words, the blood vessel absorbs the current and becomes heated and closes up. It is then gradually absorbed by the body and proceeds to fade away.
Same as for moles and skin tags the current causes cauterization to its root effectively killing and destroying the abnormal growth without damaging the surrounding tissues. In other words, it stops the blood supplies from flowing to specific area.
