Advanced Cosmetic Procedures (Advanced Electrolysis).
Cosmetic treatment for your blemishes, skin conditions and growths.

A horrid wart, an unsightly mole or the appearance of thread veins may not be conditions you want to bother your local doctor with. Nevertheless, they can be bothersome to you. Advanced Cosmetic Procedures, otherwise known as advanced electrolysis, is a recognised treatment for these and a host of other cosmetic blemishes, skin conditions and benign growths. It’s a quick, safe and effective treatment, diminishing the appearance of your skin imperfections and bringing back your skin confidence. The treatment doesn’t involve injections or incisions.  There is no down time so that treatment can easily and conveniently fit around your busy life.

What are Advanced Cosmetic Procedures?

History

Advanced Cosmetic Procedures are well established originating in the early 1900’s. Heat was used to treat broken capillaries, warts, spider naevi, port-wine marks and even xanthoma (yellow pigmented spots on the eye lids). Advancements in the application of this technology means that we can treat many more types of skin blemishes. These include thread veins, blood spots, hairs in moles and mole reduction.  Skin tags, milia, seborrhoeic keratosis, plantar warts, verrucae, sebaceous cysts and sebaceous hyperplasia can also be treated.

Method

The procedures are carried out using a fine needle to facilitate current in the area being treated.  Your treatment procedure will be explained in full at the time of your consultation.

  • Frequently Asked Questions

Are advanced cosmetic procedures suitable for anyone?

This treatment is suitable for men and women, whatever your skin type.

Will I find advanced cosmetic procedures painful?

You are likely to experience a feeling similar to pin pricks on the treated area.  Your pain thresholds may be lowered at certain times in your menstrual cycle, if you are unwell, or if your stress levels are high.

Will advanced cosmetics procedures get rid of my blemishes?

Your treated blemish will not return once treated in full, but others may occur depending on the root cause.  We will discuss this with you during your consultation.

Will advanced cosmetic procedures damage my skin or cause scarring?

Your skin may look red, swollen and warm immediately after your treatment. You should not touch your skin, instead, allow any small scabs that may appear to fall off in their own time. You may also experience an itchy feeling. This is due to your body’s pain receptors responding to the treatment. We will discuss aftercare advice at your consultation and, if followed correctly, there should be no damage or scarring to your skin.  We are highly qualified and experienced therapists so you are in safe hands.

How many treatments am I likely to need and how frequently?

These procedures are safe and effective and can offer you instant results in many cases.  Your therapist will advise you how many treatments you might need,  however it is difficult to be very specific. Your skin must not be overworked and it’s reactivity will be taken into account.  With this in mind, we will carefully plan a schedule that is appropriate to your individual needs.

When should I come in for my treatment?

This depends on how large your treatment area is and how well your skin heals.  Regular appointments are usually every three weeks if your skin heals well.  However, it is recommended that you always leave four weeks between the first two treatments. This is because healing is still taking place in the lower levels of your skin.

What after-care do I need?

Care for your recently treated skin

DO apply witch hazel gel to the treated area three times in the first 24-48 hours after your treatment.

DO apply Aloe Vera gel twice a day between treatments to maintain moisture levels. We also recommend you use Environ AVST Gel .

DO bathe your skin with a cold or iced saltwater solution regularly in the hours following your treatment. This will cool your skin, reduce inflammation and speed up the healing process. (Add half a teaspoon of salt to 1 cup (250ml) of boiling water and chill.)

DO apply sun protection daily to prevent sunlight interfering with the healing process. We recommend you use Jane Iredale mineral make-up which will not cause any irritation while working as an anti-inflammatory.

Caution for long time skin healing

DO NOT touch the area with your fingers.

DO NOT pick any spots or crusts that may appear.  This will allow the natural healing process to take place. If spots or crusts do appear, do not apply any make-up on them other than Jane Iredale mineral make-up.

DO NOT expose your skin to the sun or sunbeds for two weeks after your treatment. If you are having an intensive course, we recommend that you avoid sun exposure on the area for the duration of your course. We appreciate that this may be difficult, so we recommend using strong sun protection and Jane Iredale mineral make-up to act as an effective sunblock.

And finally, DO NOT swim for 48 hours after your treatment.
