What is Advanced Electrolysis?
Advanced Electrolysis (also known as Advanced Cosmetic Procedures) is a comfortable and effective treatment. This versatile method can treat a variety of skin blemishes, from skin tags and age spots, to facial thread veins, warts and milia, as well as vascular conditions.
Indications for Advanced Electrolysis
There are over 21 different types of blemishes that can be safely and effectively treated using Advanced Electrolysis including:
• Campbell de Morgans
• Spider naevi
• Minor telangiectasia on the legs
• Skin tags
• All types of warts including common, seborrhoeic, plantar (verruca)
• Age spots
• Dermatosis papulosa nigra
• Small sebaceous cysts
• Sebaceous hyperplasia
• Sebaceous naevi
• Molluscum contagiosum
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.
Advanced Electrolysis is suitable for most skin types. If you are in generally good health, there are few reasons why you should not be able to undergo this treatment.
During Advanced Electrolysis treatment, an anaesthetic cream is sometimes first applied to the area to be treated to make the treatment as comfortable as possible. Your practitioner then touches the needle against or within the skin abnormality to cauterise and/or cosmetically reduce the vascular or abnormal growth.
After the treatment
After Advanced Electrolysis, depending on the particular skin condition being treated and the size of it, 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 of our clients return to work and resume their normal activities immediately after a treatment.
