Vascutouch - Laser alternative
Vascutouch (vascular/skin blemish treatment)

treats these superficial irregularities rapidly. A topical anesthesia
may be used for some skin treatments. $230 *complimentary touch up visit included *
Conditions treated w/ Vascutouch
Facial Spider Veins (Telangiectasia):
are small dilated blood vessels near the surface of the skin.
They can develop anywhere on the body but are commonly seen on the face around the nose, cheeks, and chin.
Spots (Cherry Angiomas):
commonly found on the cheeks, nose, and chin.
They are tiny red or purple “dots” and can be either flat or raised.
skin tag is a small growth on the skin that is usually
benign(harmless). It may have a short narrow stalk which connects it to
skin. They are usually small but may grow up to a half-inch long.
tags are usually harmless and do not need treatment. A person may
decide to have a skin tag removed if it is irritating them or they do
not like the way it looks. If so the skin tag may be removed by:
- Surgery: removed using a scalpel or surgical scissors.
- Cryotherapy: freezing it.
- Cauterization: burning it off.
white pearl looking balls that are just under the surface of the skin.
These are actually small micro cyst’s that are filled with oil. If they
have been in the skin a long time, they harden and will need to be treated with the VascuTouch.
A bump that forms on the skin that leads to an over productive oil gland. These glands become enlarged and clogged and usually display a soft or firm rim with a depressed center. They can be white or yellow and are usually shiny. They can be single or in clusters. The symptoms of this condition are 1–5 mm papules on the skin, mainly on the forehead, nose and cheeks, and areas of the face that are very oily. The papules may be cauliflower-shaped
Closed Comedones (clogged Pores):
an “undergrounder” early will bring it to the surface quickly or will
dissolve it in the skin so it never comes to the surface. This is
effective for treating those blemishes.
A pustule is a small elevation of the skin containing cloudy or purulent material. These can be either white or red.
Chloresterol Deposits (Xanthoma):
A deposit of yellowish cholesterol-rich material that can appear anywhere in the body in various states. They are cutaneous manifestations lipids that accumulate within the skin.
Patch of thick, scaly, or crusty skin. These growths are more common in fair-skinned people and those who are frequently in the sun. They usually form when skin gets damaged by ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun or indoor tanning beds. They may be dark, light, tan, pink, red, a combination of all these, or have the same color as the surrounding skin
. They are commonly found on the face, ears, neck, scalp, chest, backs of hands, forearms, or lips
(these are pre-cancerous and have up to a 20% risk of progression to squamous cell carcinoma, so I would have them looked at by a dermatologist prior to treatment)
How does the Vascutouch work?
A combination of Direct Current and Radio Frequency ablation is used to coagulate the skin imperfection.
How many treatments will I need?
Usually one to two treatments are all that should be needed. I provide a complimentary follow up 4-6 weeks post the Initial treatment. If it is decided after that then a second round can be scheduled.
What can I expect after the treatment?
Immediately after slight inflammation and redness occurs. This could last for 24-48 hours. Darkening of the vascular blemishes can be expected for
approximately 1 week. Gentle care is required in the area treated for
several days following the treatment. Avoid excessive exercise, exfoliation, facial manipulations and temperature influxes (sauna). Topical
skin irregularities can form a light crust or scab for several days up
to a week after treatment. Skin tags will turn black and “Fall off’
within a week.
Vascutouch is an
inexpensive way to treat minor skin surface irregularities. Radio
Frequency technology is used to treat conditions such as: cystic and
popular acne, clogged pores, cholesterol deposits, milia, cherry
angiomas, facial spider veins and capillaries, small fibromas, and skin
Before & After
Amber Self, And her team at Bloom Skin Spa are truly amazing!! I've
gone to Bloom on several occasions and every time, left more than
satisfied. Over a year ago, I struggled with embarrassing skin tags on
my face, neck, arms, and chest. I was recommended to try Vascutouch.
Vascutouch is a little hidden gem of a machine that completely banished
my skin tags!! Within a couple weeks after the Vascutouch treatment, my
skin tags fell off without notice and scarring! It did not hurt and
having Amber administer the procedure was very relaxing!! 3/8/2015
I had a stubborn issue on my cheek that wasn't being addressed, until I
was educated on the benefits of Vascutouch. After almost 2 years of
being reminded of the the problem, it's finally been resolved!
also had several other areas with varying issues that I hadn't even
noticed, such as a few small Broken Capillaries, they are gone also.
I'm very pleased!
“Vascutouch and Ultherapy far exceeded my expectations. I’ve never been under
anesthesia, or in the hospital and would never consider having surgery
for cosmetic reasons. Bloom Skin Spa opened my eyes to the possibilities
of getting incredible results without going under the knife. I am so
pleased with the results - no down time, bruises, scars. And the results
only seem to improve over time!”
