Diathermy is treating broken capillaries with a fine wire probe, results are instant! I use a galvanic current (not just heat method) which means less down time and damage to the superficial skin layers! I dot along the ‘river’ of blood and dry up the blood. Its such a simple treatment with a profound result within 2 treatments, though a bid result is shown in 1 treatment. A second treatment is done really to get any specks left over from the last treatment.
Big capillaries are worth treating 3 time due to the mass of size of the blood and the probe being so fine.
Down time, there really isn’t any down time to dithermy, the swelling goes down within an hour. There are a few specks of crusting though it’s hardly noticeable.
