Advanced Electrolysis

How does it work?

Many of us suffer with minor skin blemishes that can affect our confidence. These issues are much more common than many people would think, due to a combination of factors including ageing, UV Damage and certain health conditions.
Electrolysis has been used for more than 100 years to treat problems such as broken capillaries, spider naevi and warts. It has progressed dramatically with the ongoing development of modern technology and is a simple and safe technique. Electrolysis  is used to successfully remove, visibly reduce and improve the appearance of unwanted skin blemishes, offering immediate and effective results.

What concerns can be treated and what kind of results can be expected?


• Red Veins and Spider Naevi
Fading begins about three weeks after treatment, with the broken capillaries beginning to disappear. Typically up to three treatments may be required, although there may be a noticeable difference after just one treatment.
• Skin Tags
These small blemishes are cauterised and removed instantly, with small red marks or scabbing appearing after treatment. These will disappear after 7-10 days.
• Milia
The current cauterises the blemish and the milia is reabsorbed back into the skin. Results can start to show up to a month after treatment.
• Warts/Verrucas
Often two treatments are needed, taken eight weeks apart, to remove warts and verrucas.
• Seborrhoeic Keratosis
The current is used to lift away and cauterise and scabs will appear for up to two weeks. Once these have healed, you will see that the blemish has been fully removed.
• Sebaceous Cyst
These cysts can be quite persistent, depending on their size and the area to be treated. Several treatments maybe needed to reduce or remove the cyst.
• Syringoma
The current applied will shrink the blemish. Small crusts and swellings will then appear, taking up to two weeks to heal.  Several treatments may be needed, depending on the area to be treated.
• Xanthelasma
The current shrinks the blemish, small crusts and swellings will appear which will take up to 2 weeks to heal.  Several treatments may be needed depending on the area to be treated.
• Age Spot Removal
These blemishes are lifted away and cauterised, leaving small scabs that will disappear over a couple of weeks.
• Mole Reduction
The mole is reduced by half its size in a single treatment and will continue to reduce as the scab forms and disappears. One top-up treatment may be necessary

What does the treatment feel like?


Electrolysis clients generally describe the treatment as mildly uncomfortable, with a warm stinging sensation which they find to be easily tolerable.


Consultation and Aftercare


A consultation is given before any advanced electrolysis treatment; this entails a short questionnaire about any health issues that may affect the treatment. We also diagnose the blemish and fully explain the treatment needed, how it will be done, the time it will take and any aftercare required. This is so all our clients are fully informed about the procedure and feel comfortable and relaxed when they go ahead with the treatment.
We give all our clients an aftercare cream to take home and advise them on how to treat their skin for the following couple of weeks.  How many treatments will be needed, and how often these need to be carried out, will also be discussed.
Clients often ask what the down time is for the procedure. This does depend on the blemish you are having treated. Generally allow two weeks after the treatment for swelling, redness and scabs/crusts to disappear, with results being more easily visible up to a month later. This can be discussed in detail at your consultation.
