Thermocoagulation - Imperfections

The following skin imperfections can be treated:

We always begin with an initial consultation where we study the skin imperfections before treating. We explain the procedure to the client, how long it will take and recovery time. We always take the time to answer all the client’s questions and make sure the client is completely comfortable about the process. The client will then make his/her decision. If we detect a suspicious skin irregularity, we will recommend a consultation with a dermatologist.

We would like to remind you that thermocoagulation is a purely cosmetic treatment, not medical.
