Advanced Cosmetic Procedures

Using advanced electrolysis, I can perform the reduction and removal of the following skin blemishes.

Cherry Angioma (Campbell de Morgan)

A common skin growth that can appear on most areas of your body, the broken blood vessel inside the cherry angioma gives the reddish appearance. Some may be smooth with your skin while others may be slightly raised. It usually takes one treatment of advanced electrolysis to clear, although deeper coloured lesions may take more then one session, there will be an improvement after one session.

Telangiectasia (Thread veins)

These are small permanently dilated blood vessels which are visual through the skin, there are many causes for this such as ageing, smoking, alcohol consumption, genetic factors, exposure to harsh weather etc. Using advanced electrolysis I will use a little heat to seal off the tiny capillary. This results in the capillary drying up and disappearing. Very small thread veins will usually only need one treatment however bigger veins may need more then one treatment.

Skin Tags

Small flesh coloured or brown growth that hangs off the skin, very common in areas of friction. Skin tags can snag on clothes or jewellery becoming sore. Skin tags are removed quickly and easily with advanced electrolysis, heat energy is applied to the stalk of the skin tag and it will come off at the time of treatment, no further appointments are usually needed.

Spider Naevi

Type of telangiectasia (thread vein) found underneath the surface of the skin, often containing a central red spot with fine radiating vessels coming outwards like a spiders legs.

Milia

Very small, raised, pearly white or yellowish lumps which occur in the top layer of the skin, this occurs when sebum (oil produced by the skin) becomes trapped in a blind duct. Milia is more common in dry skin and the exact cause is unknown but may be due to excess vitamin C in the diet, too rich cream on the face or be the result of injury to the skin. Once treated with advanced electrolysis a small pin dot crust will form on the milia which will heal and fall away within a few days.

Warts and Verrucas

Common warts can be single or occur in groups on the skin, they have a thickened rough surface which may have black dots in it (black dots are tiny blood vessels). Plane warts have a flat surface and are skin coloured or brown, both types of warts can appear anywhere on the body. Verrucas are just warts but they occur on the soles of the feet, these can be painful as you are constantly putting pressure on them by walking. Using advanced electrolysis warts are treated by inserting a little probe into the base of the wart (where the blood supply is) and passing a heat energy to the area, sealing off the blood supply to the wart. Electrolysis is a much more successful treatment then freezing the wart off or applying products to the wart.

Seborrhoeic Keratosis

Benign growth caused by a build up of ordinary skin cells. Can become more raised and larger over time, they may itch, become inflamed or catch on clothing. Seborrhoeic keratosis have a rough surface and range in colour from golden brown to almost black. They can be dry and crumbly and have a "pasted on" appearance. They are removed by using the heat energy from electrolysis to gently scrap them off the skin, a second treatment may be required on with larger ones.

Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra

Small dome shaped little spots on the skin, these are actually very small seborrhoeic keratosis on the face, they usually occur on darker skins. Gently scraped off the face using advanced electrolysis, leaving no mark.

Sebaceous Hyperplasia

The sebaceous glands become enlarged, producing yellow, shiny bumps on the face. Usually occurring on the forehand, nose and cheeks as these are the areas with the most oil glands. Advanced electrolysis is used to gently scrap them away.

Syringoma

Little bumps caused by the overgrowth of the sweat glands. Most commonly appearing around the eyes, can be mistaken for milia but these are softer and more oval in shape. Using advanced electrolysis these are gently scraped away from the skin.

Xanthelasma 

A build up of fat cells under the skin, appearing around and under the eyes. These may indicate high cholesterol. They are gently scraped away using advanced electrolysis.

Moles

Moles are a collection of skin cells, blood vessels and sometimes pigment cells gathered together. Moles can be treated very well using advanced electrolysis, the mole will have to be stable if it is to be treated. Heat energy will be applied to the surface of the mole, this will seal off the moles blood supply, more then one treatment may be needed depending on the size of the mole. Doctors note required for treatment of moles.
