Most of our clients comment that Diathermy was not as bad as they had heard. The best way we can describe the sensation, is to compare it to the sensation of a hair being plucked out or a pin prick. This is not a comfortable sensation but most would agree that it is hardly unbearable.

Does Diathermy damage the skin?

Immediately following treatment, there may be a slight redness and/or swelling which usually disappears within a few hours. Occasionally, small whiteheads or tiny scabs may occur.
