Advanced Cosmetic Procedure (ACP) treatments using electrolysis are becoming increasingly popular as knowledge about these fantastic treatments increases. A wide diversity of skin blemishes can be quickly and easily treated with immediate and effective results offering an eventual blemish free smooth skin.
What actually happens in advanced electrolysis?
The tip of the finest, smallest probe possible (about the size of an eyelash) is introduced along the line of the capillary and a tiny energy current is discharged. This ‘dries up’ and destroys the vessel which often disappears as it is being treated. Further treatments may be necessary depending on the severity of the problem.
In the case of skin tags the current destroys the vessels ‘feeding’ the blemish ‘starving’ it of nourishment resulting in its eventual demise.
An information leaflet on ACP will be handed out at your consultation.

These are not broken capillaries but rather permanently dilated capillaries. They have very thin walls which constantly dilate and constrict. As we age, these vessels lose their elasticity and can become permanently dilated.
There are numerous causes including: ageing, hereditary, pregnancy, the rubbing of spectacles, smoking, energetic sports, temperature extremes and harsh weather exposure, hormones and skin fragility. They are commonly seen in maturing “English rose” complexion.
