ADVANCED ELECTROLYSIS

Advanced Cosmetic Procedure (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 me to care and support you in a practical sense by removing any unsightly skin blemishes that may have affected your confidence and wellbeing recently or throughout your life.

As far back as the early 1900s 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 treatment 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
  • 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 most common on the trunk or torso and particularly 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, 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 to 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.
