Before and After
What Is Skin Classic?
The Skin Classic uses high frequency electrical currents also known as electro-desiccation. Electro-desiccation dehydrates and dries out the top layer of the minor skin irregularity in order to allow new skin to grow and replace it.
Is It Safe?
Yes. Skin Classic can safely and effectively eliminate skin irregularities from almost anywhere on the body.
Who Is The Treatment For?
The Skin Classic is an award-winning laser alternative treatment for common skin irregularities such as broken capillaries, cherry angiomas, keratosis, skin tags, hyper-pigmentation, milia, and sebaceous hyperplasia.
How Does It Work?
The Skin Classic utilizes a lamprobe to transmit an electric current to effectively vaporize and dehydrate the skin irregularity with little downtime and no damage to surrounding tissue.
What Are The Advantages?
It is a highly effective treatment that is safe for all skin types for correcting a variety of irregularities. It is a non-invasive remedy that can reduce or diminish spots and imperfections that have not responded to alternative methods.
What Areas Can I Treat?
Red Facial Veins
What Are Skin Classic Post-Procedure Instructions?
After treatment it is common to feel irritation as well as redness. Some crusting may form on the areas treated. If the area is still irritated by the end of the day, a clean baggie of frozen peas works well. The peas defrost quickly so usually no chance of skin damage.
IT IS IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER
Wash with gentle cleanser and fingertips
NO TERRY CLOTH
Use moisturizing SPF of 30 or more everyday
Do not get areas wet: eg wash face at vanity... shower with back to water if face was treated, keep hands out of water if hands were treated, etc. (crusts will become soggy and slough too quickly... crusts are natures Band-Aids.)
Crusts will slough in 5-7-10-14 days depending on individual (hands on the longer side)
Do not use any harsh or anti-aging products while crusted
Absolutely no picking or scratching!!
No procedures in the areas of treatment for 30 days
After crusts have sloughed and skin is smooth, you may resume your skin regime as suggested by your therapist
Areas may continue to be pink until completely healed
Continue to wear SPF of 30 or more... FOREVER! EVERY 2 HOURS ;)
How Many Treatments Do I Need?
How Soon Will I Receive Results?
5 to 7 days on the face and 10-12 for the neck and body.
Is It Expensive?
Treatment to remove an irregularity starts at just $50.
Is It Pain Free?
There is some minor discomfort associated with the Skin Classic treatment; on a scale of 1-10, most patients put the treatment at a 3-5 depending on the area treated and irregularity. Numbing cream can be added to your treatment if you wish for an additional $50.
