Advanced Cosmetic Procedures

Blemish Removal using Advanced Cosmetic Procedures

Advanced Cosmetic Procedures (ACP) is a new adaptation of an existing well established and safety proven treatment, Namely Electrolysis/Diathermy or Thermocoagulation. Electrolysis in its usual form is best known as a permanent hair removal procedure which works by passing an electrical current into the root of the hair follicle and killing it. However, electrical current can also be used to remove skin blemishes such as Skin Tags, Milia and Thread Veins. The electrical current passes down a probe and into the skin where it effectively cauterises the blemish enabling it to be removed without surgery.

We are trained to provide you with the most up to date and safest way to remove Skin Tags, Thread Veins , Milia, Spider Vein, Campbell Morgan Spots, Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra,  Xanthelasma, Sebaceous Hyperplasia, Syringoma

Thread Veins (Telangiectasia) Treatment with Diathermy

Common on the face as we age, these are either broken or permanently dilated capillaries, which are the smallest blood vessels we have. They have very thin walls which constantly dilate and constrict. As we age, these vessels lose their elasticity and can become permanently dilated. Ageing, pregnancy, smoking, energetic sports, harsh weather and hormones are just a few of the many causes.

Diathermy coagulation does not use a laser therefore the risk of excessive exposure to light reduces the chance of any scaring etc; instead a very fine needle is used to isolate each vein or capillary, to cut off the blood flow so that it is no longer visible through the skin.

Spider Veins (Spider Naevus) Treatment

A spider Naevus is a central dilated blood vessel which has smaller capillaries coming from it, like the legs of spiders. They can be on their own or clumped in groups on the cheeks, legs and other areas.

Diathermy Skin Tags Removal

Skin tags are very common and are mainly found on the neck, under the arms and in women they are common under the breasts and the bikini line. They often appear with a neck somewhat like a mushroom and vary in size. They can be smaller than a grain of uncooked rice or larger than a broad bean. They are mainly caused by friction, for example around the neck where necklaces and collars rub the skin.
