Treatable Skin Blemishes
These are 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, sun-damage, hereditary, pregnancy, trauma e.g. the rubbing of spectacles and smoking. Energetic sports, temperature extremes, harsh weather exposure, hormones and skin fragility are also common causes. They are commonly seen in a maturing 'English rose' complexion.
Bright red, superficial vascular blemishes these are often dome shaped or slightly raised and are frequently found on the midriff. Most people aged over 30 have at least one and they are often more common in men than women.
A Spider Naevus is a central dilated blood vessel, with smaller capillaries radiating from it like the legs of a spider. They can be found in isolation or gathered together in clumps on areas such as the cheeks.
Skin Tags are very common and most frequently found on the neck and face. They often appear with a neck like a mushroom and vary in size from a tiny speck, smaller than a grain of uncooked rice, to the size of a large pea or even larger. They are often found in areas of friction such as the underarm, groin, under the breasts or around the neck where necklaces may irritate.
These are tiny, white, hard, round spots containing keratin which lie superficially under the surface of the skin. Their exact cause is unknown although they are often associated with dry, dehydrated skin.
There are various types of warts including plane, common, filiform and verrucas and all can be easily and successfully treated using electrolysis. These types of warts can develop in clusters and are highly contagious.
Although these are classified as part of the wart family they are not contagious and very common on the head, face and body. Associated with increasing age, mature skins, sun-damage they also have genetic links. Growing up to 2 inches across they are often dry, crusty and considered cosmetically unattractive.
Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra
Is a common papular disorder which develops in adolescence on black skin and is identified by smooth, dome shaped, brown papules seen mainly on the cheeks, neck and upper chest.
Hairs from moles can be treated by those trained in ACP techniques. Once treatment has started the mole may reduce in size and colour. Hairs in moles are generally deep terminal hairs with a very rich blood supply. Repeat treatments, as with electrical epilation are required. Moles respond extremely well to electrolysis and treatment is effective visibly reducing the size and often lightening the colour of the mole.
Ask our electrolysis specialist for advice about electrolysis for many other treatable conditions such as:
Age Spots/Pigmentation marks
Campbell de Morgans/Cherry Angiomas
Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra
Hairs in moles
Skin Tags or Paillomas
(Note: Some blemishes require a GP's written consent prior to treatment)
Your Questions Answered
How long is a treatment and how many will I require?
ACP treatments are safe and effective and offer instantaneous results in many cases. Length of treatment very much depends on the problem and our electrolysis specialist will advise you during consultation.
The area must not be over-treated and your skin reactivity will be taken into account. Spacing technique and treatment intervals will be carefully considered in a treatment plan by our specialist as well as your requirements, needs and wishes.
How are thread veins treated?
The tip of the finest, smallest probe possible (about the size of an eyelash) is introduced along the line of the capillary and high frequency energy 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.
How are skin tags treated?
There are a number of different techniques depending on the location and size of the tag. Results are effective, instantaneous and permanent for the tags treated although more tags may appear in time.
Will my blemishes return?
The treated blemish should not return but others may occur depending on the root cause. Our electrolysis specialist will advise you during consultation.
Mixing electrolysis methods.
The method chosen is a decision the electrolysis specialist will make and will be determined by the blemish(es), condition of the skin client compatibility and equipment.
