ADVANCED ELECTROLYSIS

A wide variety of skin blemishes can be treated by Electrolysis, results are immediate & effective.

THREAD VEINS
These are non broken capillaries but rather permanently dilated capillaries.  They have very thin walls which constantly dilate and constrict.  As we age, these vessels lose their elasticity and can become permanently dilated.

There are numerous causes including sun damage, ageing, smoking, alcohol, hereditary, sports, temperature extremes/harsh weather exposure, hormones and skin fragility.

SPIDER NAEVUS
This is the central dilated blood vessel with smaller capillaries radiating from it like the legs of a spider.  They can be found in isolation or gathered together on areas such as the face and décolletage.

SKIN TAGS
These are very common and most frequently found on the neck and face.  They often appear with a neck like a mushroom and vary in size from a tiny speck, to the size of a pea or larger.  They are usually found in areas of friction such as the underarm, folds of the skin, under the breasts or around the neck where necklaces may irritate.

MILIA
These are tiny white hard lumps containing keratin which lie superficially under the surface of the skin and can be easily treated with electrolysis.  There exact cause is unknown although they are often associated with dry dehydrated skin.

WARTS
There are various types of warts including plane, common, seborrheic and verrucas.  Warts can develop individually or in clusters and all can be easily and successfully treated using electrolysis.  Seborrheic Keratosis are benign skin lesions which develop as a result of UV damage and skin ageing and can grow up to two inches in diameter.

BLOOD SPOTS
Found on the abdomen, these are bright red dome shape blemishes.

MOLES
Hairs in moles can be removed with electrolysis and the size and colour of moles can be visibly reduced.  Hairs in the moles are generally deep terminal hairs with a very rich blood supply.  Repeat treatments are required.

Note: Some blemishes may require a GP’s written consent prior to treatment.

What happens during the treatment?

Tiny probe (about the size of the eyelash) is the vehicle through which a burst of energy is released into or onto the blemish depending on the procedure.  Generally, this has the result of cauterisation or coagulation on skin tissue and produces fast effective results.  Our specialist will advise of the exact treatment technique for each blemish and guide you step by step through the procedure and the aftercare involved.  Repeat treatment may be required for some procedures.

Will my blemish return?

The treated blemish will not return but others may occur depending on the root cause.  Our therapist will advise you during consultation.

How long does it take and how many treatments will I require?

Electrolysis treatments are safe and effective and offer instantaneous results in many cases.  Length of treatment very much depends on the problem and your electrolysis specialist will advise you of this.  The area must not be overrated and your skin reactivity will be taken into account.  Spacing treatment intervals will be carefully considered in a treatment plan by our specialist as well as taking into account your requirements, needs and wishes.
