  • Frequently Asked Questions

What actually happens in advanced electrolysis?

The procedure varies depending on the skin condition being treated.  The procedures are carried out using a fine needle to facilitate current in the area being treated.  You treatment procedure will be explained in full at the time of consultation.

Will my blemishes return?

The treated blemish will not return, once treated in full, but others may occur depending on the root cause.  We will advise you during the consultation.

How long does it take and how many treatments will I require?

Advanced Cosmetic Procedures are safe and effective and offer instantaneous results in many cases.  Length of treatment very much depends on the problem.  Your therapist will advise you of this, although it is difficult to state a definitive time. The area must not be overworked and your skin reactivity will be taken into account.  Spacing technique and treatment intervals will be carefully considered in a treatment plan by the professional as well as taking into account your requirements, needs and wishes.

How often will I have to have appointments?

This is dependent on how large an area is treated, and how well the skin heals.  Regular appointments are required dependent on skin healing, usually 3 weekly if skin heals well, although it is recommended that you always leave 4 weeks between the first 2 treatments as although on the surface healing appears complete, healing is still taking place in the lower levels of the skin.

In the case of broken capillaries, how long will it take before there are no visible capillaries?

Never.  There can be a 60 – 80% improvement but we can never promise 100%.  Clients respond differently and we need to take the following points into consideration:

  • How many blemishes are present
  • How dark and apparent these blemishes are
  • The condition of the skin
  • The healing of the skin
  • The length of the treatment sessions
  • The root cause
  • Skincare used at home

Is the treatment painful?

This is very much a personal opinion.  The benefits hugely out way any discomfort felt.  A feeling like pin pricks will be experienced.  Pain thresholds may be lowered at certain times in the menstrual cycle, if you are unwell, or when stress levels are high.

How will the skin look after treatment

This is dependent on the condition being treated, but often the skin will look red, possibly swollen a little and warm.  The area must not be touched and pin-dot crusts, or larger scabbing may appear, that should not be picked off but left to fall off in their own time – anything from 2 days to 2 weeks.  You may also experience an ‘itchy’ feeling which may be the body’s pain receptors responding to chemical substances such as histamine that accumulate in response to local trauma.

How much will treatment cost?

This varies on the time involved for the treatment.  Some Clients only have a singular lesion to be removed, whilst others have several.  We can advice on this at time of treatment.
