How does the TC3000 thermo coagulator work?
The thermo coagulator is uniquely in its use of microwaves to heat the veins, by utilising a very high frequency energy pulse. This pulse produces a thermal lesion, resulting in the instant disappearance of the vein. The vein is thermo coagulated with no risk of lesion to the epidermis. The skin remains intact. After treatment, a "papula" may appear which progresses to tiny crusts resembling scratches. It will disappear after a few weeks.
This principle is not related to electro coagulation. The TC3000′s thermo coagulation stems from innovations in the fields of electronics and IT, produces perfectly targeted, effective and risk-free results. Unlike any other treatment, the TC3000 can be used on any part of the body, even knee and ankle. No bandages are required and the patient may resume everyday activity immediately after their treatment of 15 minutes. Below you can see how the TC3000 works on the TC3000 demonstration video.
What Equipment is used?
The TC3000 has 2 major parts: the generator and a needle holder with needle.
The generator creates the impulse. The impulse can be set at between 0.2 seconds and 1 second in 0.1 second increments. The power can be set at between 30% to 60% in 5% increments. The combination of these two settings means that highly accurate doses of energy can be delivered. The power and impulse values are accurately maintained by a microprocessor and displayed on a LCD screen. The values can be digitally adjusted using the remote control in case the machine is on the other side of the patient. No unreliable and wear-prone turning knobs are used.The ultra-fine needle has a diameter of 0.075 mm allowing for accurate operation and is protected by a specific isolating sheath. The vein is thermo coagulated without damaging the epidermis and surrounding tissue. Needles are made of nickel. In case of a nickel allergy, there are also gold needles available. The needles are disposable and can be used for a complete session. The combination of the generator and insulated needle makes it possible to deliver a very precise amount of energy to the right place.
