Lynette D. Jones Esthetics
The Skin Classic direct high frequency technology is an affordable non-laser treatment for minor skin irregularities such as telangiectasis (broken capillaries), cherry angiomas, keratosis, fibromas, skin tags, hyperpigmentation, milia, sebaceous hyperplasia, and acne. Skin Classic treatments are quick, virtually painless, and work strictly on the epidermis to address common skin irregularities as the skin ages.
The Skin Classic precisely treats and/or removes each irregularity permanently, or semi-permanently, without the use of lasers, cutting, burning, or freezing which can affect areas of the skin not being treated. The Skin Classic utilizes a lamprobe to transmit an electric current to effectively vaporize and dehydrate the skin irregularity with little downtime and no damage to surrounding tissue.
What will my skin look like post treatment?
The area treated may appear red with some inflammation. The redness should reduce within a few hours. The lighter the skin tone, the longer it may take for the redness to subside. There may be some scabbing depending on the irregularity and the area of the body being treated.
What happens if the treated skin irregularity is still present 30 days later?
Some areas may need more than one treatment.
Why can’t you treat my broken capillaries on my legs?
Lower extremities are not recommended for treatment using the skin classic. Saline injections and laser therapy are the recommended treatment for these areas.
What do I do if it’s taking longer than expected to heal?
Be patient continue to use the recommended aftercare. Don’t pick or touch the treated area and allow the scab to fall off naturally. It’s nature’s band aid!
Is it safe to treat pigmented lesions/age spots?
I strongly encourage you have your doctor examine any spot that is questionable or suspicious. We will not treat any lesion that we feel is not safe to do so.
What Does The Skin Classic Treat?
The Skin Classic is an award-winning laser alternative treatment for common skin irregularities such as broken capillaries, cherry angiomas, keratosis, skin tags, hyper-pigmentation, milia, sebaceous hyperplasia, and acne.
Telangiectasis (Broken capillaries)
Broken capillaries are small, dilated blood vessels near the surface of the skin or mucus membranes. They can develop anywhere on the body but are commonly seen on the face around the nose, cheeks, chin, and chest. They can be caused by environmental damage such as sun or cold exposure and may increase as we age. Trauma to the skin such a contusions and surgical procedures are also a factor as well as radiation therapy.
Cherry Angiomas are small clusters of capillaries at the surface of the skin that form a small round dome, orpapule, which is often flat topped. The color typically ranges from bright red to purple. When they first begin to appear, they are almost flat and appear as small red dots. These dots can grow over time up to a centimeter or more in some cases. Larger cherry angiomas may be thick and raised. These are found in various areas of the face and body and are typically caused by aging, pregnancy, genetics, and excessive sun exposur
Sebaceous Hyperplasia is a disorder of the oil glands and is a common, benign condition mostly found in adults of middle age or older. These lesions can be single or multiple and appear as a yellow, soft, small papule on the face. They are round and the oil surrounds the pore giving it a “donut-like” appearance. Typically, these occur on the nose, cheeks, and forehead. Occasionally, sebaceous hyperplasia appears on the chest or other parts of the body as well.
Brown Spots, or Lentigo, are small, pigmented spots that occur on the skin and have a clearly defined edge, surrounded by skin that appears normal. These are benign and restricted to the cell layer directly above the deepest membrane of the epidermis, which is where the melanocytes that make up these spots normally reside. Unlike freckles, these will stay stable in their color regardless of sunlight exposure. The most common, benign, sun induced lesion is a solar lentigo (actinic lentigo, senile lentigo, sun spot, liver spot). They occur in sun exposed areas appearing on the face, arms, tops of hands, and chest. The spots are typically smaller than 5mm in diameter and can be flat or depressed and may be split by fine wrinkles. The lesions are usually brown in color and may range from yellow-tan to black. Older lesions are often darker brown or black and can slowly increase in number and in size. It is most commonly found in individuals aged 30-50 years old. Increased exposure to sun and artificial sources of UV light can cause these to appear at an even younger age.
A seborrheic keratosis is a non-cancerous (benign) skin. tumor that originates from cells in the outer layer of the epidermis, also known as keratinocytes. Like liver spots, seborrheic keratoses are seen more often as people age. These lesions can be slightly elevated and have a waxy or scaly appearance like a scab from a wound. They can appear round of oval, ranging from very small to more than one inch in size. These growths can appear in various colors, ranging from light tan to black, and have been often described as having a “pasted on” appearance. Seborrheic keratoses are commonly found on the face, chest, shoulders, and back. Although typically painless, they can become irritated from clothing or jewelry that causes friction. While seborrheic keratosis is non-cancerous, basal cell carcinoma can sometimes be found in the same location and sometimes can progress into basal cell carcinoma.
Skin Classic Treatment for Minor Skin Irregularities
The Skin Classic is a direct high frequency (electrical energy) device that rapidly treats minor skin irregularities and epidermal conditions. It works by dehydrating and eliminating the top layer of a skin blemish so that new healthy skin can grow.
Common irregulars that the Skin Classic device can treat include:
- sebaceous hyperplasia
- spider naevi
- cherry angiomas
- skin tags
- clogged pores, blackheads
- cholesterol deposits
- acne pimples
Skin Classic treatments are quick and do not penetrate the skin. Small skin tags or blood spots disappear immediately and hyper pigmented areas such as liver or “age spot take only a few seconds. There is minimal discomfort for the client and healing time is short, from a day or two to a few weeks for larger skin abnormalities such as fibromas.
ARE THEY SAFE TO TREAT?
In most cases, skin growths are non-cancerous and can be safely treated. The treatment is performed by a professional, certified technician who has been trained to identify the different types of skin growths appropriate for treatment. All treatments are performed using the strictest sanitary procedures.
IS THE TREATMENT PERMANENT?
Yes, once a skin growth has been treated, it does not return. However, if your skin is prone to these types of growths, new ones may appear elsewhere on your face and on other parts of the body.
WHAT ARE SKIN GROWTHS?
Skin growths are accumulations of various types of cells that look different from the normal surrounding skin. They may be raised or flat and range in color from dark brown or black to flesh-colored or red. They may be present at birth or develop later as we age.
EXAMPLES OF MINOR SKIN IRREGULARITIES
Cherry Angioma/Blood Spot
Cherry angiomas, or blood spots, are clusters of capillaries that form in round dome. They are usually bright red but can also be purple or brown. Cherry angioma removal is fast and nearly painless.
Skin tags are often considered small fibromas because they are frequently attached by a thin stalk. In addition to being unsightly, skin tags can be painful when irritated by jewelry and clothing. Skin tag removal is nearly instantaneous with the Skin Classic.
Milia are smallcysts that develop when keratin gets trapped beneath the skin’s surface, often found around the eye area. Milia removal is fast and safe with the Skin Classic.
Fibromas/Pigmented Skin Growths
Fibromas are benign fibrous tissue growths. They be raised or flat and can be darker in color. Fibromas may look like moles;however, fibromas are composed of fibrous or connective tissue and moles are composed of clustered melanocytes. If you are not sure which you have, you can always schedule a consultation with Lynette. Fibroma removal takes only moments with the Skin Classic
Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra (DPN)
Dermatosis papulosa nigra (DPN) is a harmless skin condition that tends to affect people with darker skin. It consists of small, dark bumps that usually appear on your face and neck. While some people only develop a few bumps, others have many.
Did you know that one of the causes of Sebaceous Hyperplasia is caused by chronic sun damage? Sebaceous hyperplasia usually appears as soft, yellowish papules with a cauliflower-like or doughnut-shaped appearance ranging in size from 2 to 3mm. Although it is sebaceous, this type of skin condition cannot be removed by manual extraction.
