What is Vasculyse?
If you have been bothered by vascular lesions or small skin irregularities like skin tags, keratosis, cholesterol deposits or milia, vasculyse treatments offer a solution for you. Vasculyse uses RF energy to gently and precisely treat and remove these small blemishes through thermocoagulation.
Enjoy a more even skin tone free of vascular lesions and small skin irregularities.
If you are bothered by any of the following conditions, vasculyse treatments are a good solution for you.
- Dialated capillaries
- Cherry angiomas
- Spider angiomas
- Skin tags
- Cholesterol deposits
During an initial consultation we will determine if you are a good candidate for treatment.
What to Expect
During treatment, a small probe that conducts the RF current is applied to the lesion. Most people experience little to no discomfort. Treatments are performed in 15 minutes or less depending on the size and number of lesions being treated.
Prior to your treatment:
