How Does Diathermy Work?

Short wave diathermy involves the passage of a high frequency current at alternative levels over the area of the skin which requires treatment. The local concentration of current passes through the skin and renders the broken vessel underneath obsolete. Essentially, it blocks the flow of blood into the capillary and thus it fades away instantly. At Dublin Vitality Center, the method of Diathermy is short wave method. This means that it combines a cutting waveform with coagulation to allow greater hemostasis during cutting.

The presense of broken veins and capillaries are one of the very notable and unsightly signs of aging. Over the years and through various lifestyle indications, these small red veins become apparent especially around the nose and cheeks. Women can cover then with makeup but they are still noticeable. Men do not have this option.
