Advanced Cosmetic Procedures(ACP) treatments using electrolysis are becoming increasingly popular as knowledge about these fantastic treatments increases.

A wide diversity of skin blemishes can be quickly and easily treated with immediate and effective results offering an eventual blemish free smooth skin.

Allow your skin specialist to care and support you in a practical sense by removing any unsightly skin blemishes that may have affected your confidences and wellbeing recently or throughout your life.

as far back as the early 1900’s electrolysis was being used for the treatment of port-wine marks, broken capillaries, spider naevi, warts and even xanthoma(yellow pigmented spots or plates found on the eyelids).

Today it has progressed a long way and with ongoing improvements and modern technology it is a safe, comfortable and effective treatments still very much in demand with the clients of today.

Facial Thread Veins

These are not 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 ageing, hereditary pregnancy, the rubbing of spectacles, smoking, energetic sports, temperature extremes and harsh weather exposure, hormones and skin fragility. They are commonly seen in a maturing ‘English rose’ complexion.

BLOOD SPOTS

These are bright red vascular blemishes which lie just under the surface of the skin. They are dome shaped or slightly raised and are frequently found on the midriff, back or front. Most people aged over 30 have at least one and they are even more common in men than women.

SPIDER NAEVUS

A Spider Naevus is a 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 in clumps on areas such as the cheeks.

SKIN TAGS

Skin Tags 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, smaller than a grain of uncooked rice, to the size of a large pea or even larger. They are often found in areas of friction such as the underarm, groin, 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 ACP techniques. Their exact cause is unknown although they are often associated with dry skin which can be acidic.

WARTS

There are various types of warts, including plane, common, seborrhoeic and verrucas. All can be easily and successfully treated. Warts can develop individually or in clusters. Seborrhoeic warts become more common with increasing age and can grow up to two inches across.

DERMATOSIS PAPULOSA NIGRA

Is a common popular disorder which develops in adolescence on black skin and is identified by smooth, dome shaped, brown to black papules seen mainly on the cheeks, neck and upper chest.

MOLES

Hairs from moles (and moles themselves) can be treated by those trained in ACP techniques. Once treatment has started the mole may reduce in size and colour. Hairs in moles are generally deep terminal hairs with a very rich blood supply. Repeat treatments, as with electrical epilation are required.

Ask your skin specialist for advice about electrolysis for many other treatable skin conditions such as: sebaceous cysts, age spots, xanthelasma and other blemishes.

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

Your questions answered

The tip of the finest, smallest probe possible (about the size of an eyelash) is introduced along the line of the capillary and a tiny energy current is discharged. This ‘dries up’ and destroys the vessel which often disappears as it is being treated. Further treatments may be necessary depending on the severity of the problem.

In the case of skin tags the current destroys the vessels ‘feeding’ the blemish ‘starving’ it of nourishment resulting in its eventual demise.

The treated blemish will not return but others may occur depending on the root cause. Your skin specialist will advise you during consultation.
ACP treatments are safe and effective and offer instantaneous results in many cases. Length of treatment very much depends on the problem and your skin specialist will advise you of this although it is difficult to state a definitive time.

The area worked on must not be over treated and your skin reactivity will be taken into account. Spacing technique and treatment intervals will be carefully considered in a treatment plan by the professional as well as taking into account your requirements, needs and wishes.

The method chosen is a decision the skin specialist will make and will be determined by the blemish(es), condition of the skin, client compatibility and equipment.
You pay for the length of time you are treated with a minimum of 15 minutes. The price varies depending on the clinic, area and equipment.

The skin specialist will be pleased to offer you a consultation and price estimate.
