Nuisance skin tags, milia, veins, and moles can be targeted with our Diathermy treatment.
What is Sterex Diathermy?
The diathermy machine uses a fine needle to treat the area of concern, by sending a electrical current to the area being treated, ensuring safe effective treatment to the blemish, to reduce or cauterise it. We use short wave diathermy to treat skin blemishes.
Your consultation is a two step process, our skin technician will want to examine your concerns and discuss how to get the best possible results for you.
At this stage we will give you a comprehensive breakdown of the machine we use, the treatment, your expectations, timescales & risks.
Skin concerns can usual be treat on the same day and once you and our skin technician are happy, they will proceed with the treatment.
This treatment is quick and slightly uncomfortable (numbing cream is optional). Some skin concerns such as moles (must be checked by GP first) may require more than one treatment.
At the final stage our skin technician will talk to you about post treatment care.
Treated areas may be red and the area may feel sore and sensitive. The effects will last up to a week and the area will scab over as it heals.
No hot showers/swimming/sauna for 48 hours
Avoid picking any small scabs that may form - this will disrupt the healing process
Apply witch hazel twice daily for 3 days post treatment
