Frequently Asked Questions
Electrocoagulation is highly effective for treating various skin irregularities such as couperose, spider naevi, dermatosis papulosa nigra, fibromas, and verruca seborrhoica. It is a precision technique specifically aimed at treating the concerned skin abnormalities without significant damage to the surrounding tissue. The effectiveness depends on various factors, including the type and extent of the skin abnormality, but many patients see significant improvements after the treatment.
Electrocoagulation can cause some discomfort or a sensation of warmth, depending on the treatment and the area being treated. The degree of pain or discomfort varies from person to person. Most patients find the treatment tolerable.
The recovery time after an electrocoagulation treatment is relatively short. Patients can often resume their normal activities immediately after the treatment. There may be some redness or swelling, but these symptoms usually disappear quickly. It is important to follow the aftercare instructions from the skin therapist for optimal recovery.
Electrocoagulation is effective for a wide range of skin abnormalities, but it is not suitable for all types of skin problems. The suitability of electrocoagulation for a specific skin abnormality is determined during the consultation. Some skin abnormalities may respond better to other treatment methods.
After an electrocoagulation treatment, it is important to allow the skin to heal quietly and not scratch the treated areas. Avoid intensive sports for the first 24 hours and sauna or swimming pool use for 48 hours. Keep the treated area clean and follow the specific aftercare instructions from the skin therapist. Protect the skin from sunlight and use a healing cream such as Hubislab K-cream if necessary.
