Electrolysis

No marks, no scarring - just perfectly repaired skin

WHAT IS ELECTROLYSIS?

First developed in 1875 for in-growing eyelashes the technology known as Advanced Electrolysis or Advanced Cosmetic Procedures use the methods of ‘short wave diathermy’ (alternating currents at a high frequency and low voltage) or ‘blend’ (a mixture of A/C and D/C currents) to treat a wide variety of skin conditions as well as permanent hair removal.

What conditions does Electrolysis treat?

Advanced Electrolysis is a very effective technique to treat a variety of small skin conditions and abnormal growths efficiently. There will be no marks left on the treated skin or scarring. The skin condition will be gone forever.

THE CONDITIONS THAT CAN BE PERMANENTLY TREATED ARE:

Skin Tags

Skin tags are tiny pieces of extra skin that can be found on any part of the body, but are most common on the eyelids and neck, and in the armpits and groin, and under the breasts. Although skin tags are benign they can be annoying and unsightly especially if they catch on clothing or jewellery or interfere with shaving.

Seborrhoeic Keratoses

Seborrhoeic keratoses are raised, crusty pigmented lesions which usually occur on the face and trunk. Some people start to develop seborrhoeic keratoses in their thirties, and most people have at least a few by the time they are sixty. Like skin tags they are normally just a nuisance – they can rub on clothing, and their appearance can be distressing that they interfere with choice of clothing, sports like swimming, and intimacy.

Spider Naevi

Spider Naevi have a small (1mm) central dilated vessel with numerous tiny blood vessels radiating from it to resemble the legs of spiders. They are common in women, particularly during pregnancy and when taking the contraceptive pill and typically occur on the face, neck, upper trunk and arms.

Milia (Milk Spots)

Milia are small, white spots that usually appear around the eyes (and eyelids), on the cheeks, nose and chin. They are keratin filled cysts which are commonly associated with newborn babies but can appear in people of all ages.

Blood Spots

Campbell de Morgan Spots are benign proliferations of blood vessels resulting in small cherry-red spots up to about 5mm in diameter. They are usually multiple and most commonly occur on the trunk.

The results are very good.
