Advanced Electrolysis Procedures

Advanced Electrolysis Procedures

Advanced Electrolysis is a quick and effective treatment to help reduce blemishes, skin tags, facial thread veins and milia.

There are a number of blemishes that can be safely and effectively treated using Advanced Electrolysis including:

  • Telangiectasia (thread veins)

 

  • Campbell de Morgans (blood spots)

  • Spider Naevi

  • Skin Tags

  • Hairs in moles

  • Milia/milk spots

 

Advanced Electrolysis is a quick procedure, leaving no marks and minimal pain. A tiny, sterile needle is carefully inserted into, or beside, the area that is being treated. A very small current of energy is passed into this part of the skin. This ‘dries up’ the vessels that feed into the area of concern, leading to a visible reduction in the appearance of the blemish.

What to expect during your advanced electrolysis treatment

Before treatment

Before Advanced Electrolysis treatment a consultation is recommended in order to assess the treatment area, medical history and patch test. This will also allow you to experience the feel of the treatment and review your skin’s response.

During treatment

During Advanced Electrolysis treatment the tiny needle will touch against or within the skin abnormality to cauterise and/or cosmetically reduce the vascular or abnormal growth.

After treatment

After Advanced Electrolysis, depending on the treatment area and size, you can expect some post treatment discomfort and scabbing as the area heals.

This is a temporary side effect. Results are visible immediately, with further improvements seen over a period of time, or following a series of sessions if required.

Many clients can return to work and resume their normal activities immediately after a treatment.

If the area being treated is on your face, you may wish to plan treatment around social events if you do not wish to attend them before post-treatment healing has completed.

Depending on your individual requirements, you may need to book more than 1 treatments, this will be discussed with you during your consultation.

Side effects

After Advanced Electrolysis, some people find the treated area can often scab and appear red. These side effects are short term and will fade in time.

A course of Advanced Electrolysis is often advised for telangiectasia so that treatments can be spaced out to prevent skin damage or hyper-pigmentation.

Some conditions can be quite resilient and more than one treatment may be necessary.
