What is Electrodessication using Skin Classic?

Electrodesiccation with Skin Classic is a cutting-edge procedure that utilizes high-frequency technology to dehydrate the top layer of specific skin irregularities, allowing new, healthy skin to shine through. It offers an affordable non-laser treatment option for minor skin concerns, delivering quick, precise, and effective results.

What does Skin Classic treat?

Skin Classic can effectively address various skin irregularities, including:

  • Broken capillaries
  • Flat hyperpigmentation
  • Skin tags
  • Milia
  • Clogged pores
  • Blackheads
  • Whiteheads
  • Active acne
  • Cholesterol deposits
  • Cherry angiomas
  • Sebaceous hyperplasia
  • Seborrheic keratosis
  • DPN (Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra)

Is there any downtime?

Yes, there is some downtime associated with Skin Classic treatments. After the procedure, you may experience mild redness and inflammation, with the extent depending on the treated area. Over the following 24-48 hours, a scab-like crust will form, naturally falling off in 7-14 days. In some cases, you may experience temporary swelling or bruising, especially after treating broken capillaries.

What is the recommended post-treatment care?

Until the scabs have naturally fallen off, it’s essential to follow proper post-treatment care, which includes:

  • Using a gentle cleanser, moisturizer, and daily SPF
  • Avoiding submerging the treated areas in water until after scabs have shed
  • Minimizing sweat contact on treated areas during exercise
  • Absolutely no picking at scabs
  • Wearing SPF daily to protect the newly revealed skin

What will my skin look like after the scabs fall off?

After the scabs have shed, your skin may appear pinkish or brownish for up to 6-8 weeks as it goes through the complete healing cycle. Consistent use of proper home care products and SPF will help normalize your skin tone during this period.

Can I wear makeup after the treatment?

During the healing process, you can use mineral makeup to cover the treated areas. However, full coverage makeup is not recommended. If you must wear a full face of makeup, be gentle when removing it.

What does the treatment feel like?

The Skin Classic procedure involves a mild stinging sensation when the probe touches the skin. There is no piercing or penetration into the skin; it feels similar to an ant bite. This superficial process makes 15-minute treatments tolerable and effective. If you experience minimal pain or inflammation after treatment, you may consider taking allergy medication or Tylenol in the evening.

How much does it cost?

The cost of Skin Classic treatments varies depending on the size and number of skin irregularities to be treated. Typically, irregularities the size of an eraser on a #2 pencil are priced at $30 each for removal. Multiple irregularities are common, and a personalized quote will be provided after assessing your specific skin concerns.
