If you have toenail fungus, you’re not alone. Nearly 70% of people suffer from one to 10 toes being affected by the condition. Once the fungus gets under a toenail, it’s difficult to treat. Topical solutions don’t always work and oral medications carry a risk of side effects and can be hard on the body. Fortunately, Dr. Jean Chapman has a laser that can effectively treat toenail fungus and is painless and side-effect free.
VascuTouch is a quick and effective treatment for the removal of superficial skin lesions. VascuTouch uses very low levels of Radio Frequency (RF) and will not cause scarring, hyperpigmentation, or damage to surrounding tissue. Within a few days, the blemish will heal and disappear. VascuTouch electrocoagulates the blood in tiny vessels which stops the blood from flowing. Regardless of where they are located on the body, they can be treated in minutes and within a few days, they fall off on their own. The vessel is then naturally absorbed by the body. One to three sessions can successfully correct most conditions, depending on how many broken capillaries or blemishes exist.
- Seborrheic Keratosis: A seborrheic keratosis usually looks like a dark waxy or wart-like growth. It typically appears on the face, chest, shoulders or back of the body. You may develop a single growth or cluster of them.
- Milium Cysts: A milium cyst is a small, white bump that typically appears on the nose and cheeks. Milia occur when keratin becomes trapped beneath the surface of the skin. Keratin is a strong protein that’s typically found in skin tissues, hair, and nail cells.
- Hemangioma (Cherry Angioma): Red moles, or cherry angiomas, are common skin growths that can develop on most areas of the body. They are usually found on people aged 30 and older.
- Skin Tags: Skin tags are harmless growths on the skin that can vary in number. They are usually the same color as your skin or slightly darker. These tiny pieces of tissue are composed of blood vessels and a type of protein fiber called collagen. They project from the surrounding skin on a thin or thick stalk. While most skin tags are small, pinhead-sized bumps, they may become as large as a grape. Skin tags can develop on any part of the body, but most commonly grow on areas of high friction.
- Syringomas: Syringomas are benign multiple skin-colored small lumps measuring 1 to 3 mm in diameter that appear mostly around the eye area. Syringomas are more common in women and most frequently appear during or after adolescence. Syringoma can also appear on the trunk, chest and abdominal areas of the body.
- Sebaceous Hyperplasia: Sebaceous hyperplasia is a very common condition that causes small bumps on the skin. The bumps are most often skin-colored, but can also take on a white to slightly yellow tint. They range in size from 1 or 2 millimeters to several millimeters in size. The surface of the bumps can be smooth, or slightly uneven and coarse.
- Facial Veins: Facial veins are often referred to as small spider veins, broken blood vessels, broken capillaries, rosacea veins or facial telangectasia. Facial veins are unsightly and can appear as tiny red threads on the nose and/or cheek area, or bluish veins around the eyes.
TCA Cross Acne Treatment
TCA (TriChloroacetic Acid) is the perfect procedure to treat all types of acne scars. The technique used is to place a small amount of high concentration TCA within in the affected acne scar. This results in a chemical reaction causing localized inflammation. This inflammatory process leads to new collagen fibers to be stimulated causing a change in the appearance of the acne scar.
