Skin Clearing Overview


Skin Clearing/Skin Classic Basics

Skin Clearing treatments are quick, cause little pain, and work strictly on the epidermis to address common skin irregularities.  
The Skin Classic precisely treats each irregularity, providing either permanent or semi-permanent results without the use of lasers, cutting, burning, or freezing.  The Skin Classic utilizes a lamprobe to transmit an electric current to desiccate the skin irregularity with little downtime and no damage to surrounding tissue. 


The skin classic machine effectively treats the following common skin irregularities. 

 

Skin Tags

Keratosis

Hyperpigmentation

Milia

Cherry Angiomas

Sebaceous Hyperplasia

Broken Capillaries


Skin clearing treatments are not without risk, though they are generally well tolerated.  Some clients may experience the following.  A consult is recommended prior to booking this service.


Discomfort:  Skin Clearing treatments may cause mild discomfort during the procedure.

Wound Healing: The treatment will result in crusting (which is normal and expected), and may also include swelling.  It will generally take about a week for the crusts to slough off, and up to a month or longer for complete healing.  The client is expected to wear SPF on the treated areas during the healing process.

Infection:  As with any treatment, infection is a risk, though it is very rare with this type of treatment.

Pigment Changes:  During the healing process, there is a possibility that the treated area can become either lighter or darker in color compared to the surrounding skin. This is usually temporary, but, on a rare occasion, it may be permanent.


Skin Clearing treatments are not for everyone.  Please see a list of contraindications below.


Pregnancy

Melasma

Pace Maker

Major Autoimmune Disorders

Accutane Users

Elderly - Healing times can be lengthy


Aftercare Instructions:  Please keep in mind that you will have crusts, and will be required to wear SPF during your healing process.  It's best to schedule when you don't have events coming up.


Until the thin crusts fall off, keep area as clean and dry as possible. There may be redness around treated areas. Do not try to remove crust as it will come off naturally. Don't pick or scratch.  Try to avoid saturating the area.  Pat dry and do not rub after cleansing. 
 Do not apply heavy makeup for at least 24 hours as it may irritate the treatment sites.  
No tanning for 30 days after treatment. Avoid suanas and swimming until after scabs have fallen off. 
Wear sunscreen of at least SPF 25 daily to protect your new skin.  
During the healing process, a gentle cleanser, moisturizer, and SPF are all that are recommended.  After the crust falls off you can return to your regular skincare regimen.  Compliance with the aftercare guidelines is crucial for healing, prevention of scarring, hyperpigmentation and hypopigmentation. 
Client may need to return to the office in 14 days so that we may observe the treatment site.
