What is the Skin Classic?
Skin Classic uses high-frequency technology that dehydrates the top layer of the particular skin irregularity in order to allow new, healthy skin to glow! It is an affordable non-laser treatment for minor skin irregularities. The treatments are quick, precise, and effective.
What does the Skin Classic treat?
Broken capillaries, flat hyperpigmentation, skin tags, milia, clogged pores, blackheads, whiteheads, active acne, cholesterol deposits, cherry angiomas, sebaceous hyperplasia, seborrheic keratosis, and DPN (Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra).
Is there any down time?
Yes there is. After the treatment, you will be slightly red and inflamed depending on the extent of the treated area. 24-48 hours after, a scab-like crust will form over the area. This will fall off on its own in 7-14 days. In some cases, swelling or bruising may occur right after treatment. Pinpoint bleeders are also normal post treatment on broken capillary treatment.
What is home care for post treatment?
Until your scabs fall off you’ll need to use a gentle cleanser, moisturizer, and SPF daily. Gentle cleansing and patting the skin dry after is best. In shower, avoid letting the water submerge the treated areas until after the scabs have come off. If you exercise, be sure to keep excess sweat off the treated areas. NO PICKING at your scabs. SPF is an absolute must to protect that new baby skin that forms after.
What will my skin look like after the scabs fall off?
The skin may look pinkish or brownish for up to 6-8 weeks as the new skin goes through the complete healing cycle. Skin tone will begin to normalize with the use of proper home care and SPF.
Can I wear makeup after?
During the healing process, the treated areas can be covered with mineral makeup but full coverage is not recommended. If you must wear a full face of makeup, please be very gentle in your makeup removal process.
What do the treatments feel like?
There is a small stinging pain associated with the touching of the probe to the skin, but there is no piercing or penetration into skin. Feels like an ant bite. This process is superficial and makes 15-minute treatments tolerable and effective. You may take allergy meds or tylenol the evening after your treatment if inflammation or minimal pain occur.
How much does it cost?
if you think about the size of an eraser on a #2 pencil, that size is $30 to remove. Normally people have more than one to treat and you will be quoted you a price once I assess your skin irregularities.
