What is Advanced Electrolysis?
Advanced Electrolysis (also known as Advanced Cosmetic Procedures) is a comfortable and effective treatment. This versatile method can treat a variety of skin blemishes, from skin tags and age spots, to facial thread veins, warts and milia, as well as vascular conditions.
There are over 21 different types of blemishes that can be safely and effectively treated using Advanced Electrolysis including:
Campbell de Morgans
minor telangiectasia on the legs
all types of warts including common, seborrhoeic, plantar (verruca)
dermatosis papulosa nigra
small sebaceous cysts
Advanced Electrolysis is a quick procedure, leaving no marks and minimal pain. A tiny, sterile needle is carefully inserted into, or beside, the area that is being treated. A very small current of energy is passed into this part of the skin. This ‘dries up’ the vessels that feed into the area of concern, leading to a visible reduction in the appearance of the blemish.
Your Advanced Electrolysis Experience
Before Advanced Electrolysis
Before Advanced Electrolysis treatment a ‘test patch’ may be required, especially before treatment of a larger area; this test will be in an area which is not too noticeable in the rare case of adverse reaction. This will also allow you to experience the feel of the treatment and allow your practitioner to assess your skin’s response.
During Advanced Electrolysis
During Advanced Electrolysis treatment an anaesthetic cream is usually first applied to the area to be treated to make the treatment as comfortable as possible. Your practitioner then touches the needle against or within the skin abnormality to cauterise and/or cosmetically reduce the vascular or abnormal growth.
After Advanced Electrolysis
After Advanced Electrolysis, depending on the particular skin condition being treated and the size of it, you can expect some post treatment discomfort and scabbing as the area heals.
This is a temporary side effect. Results are visible immediately, with further improvements seen over a period of time, or following a series of sessions if required.
Many of our clients return to work and resume their normal activities immediately after a treatment.
If the area being treated is on your face, you may wish to plan treatment around social events if you do not wish to attend them before post-treatment healing has completed.
Depending on your individual requirements, you may need to book 2 or more treatments; this will be discussed with you during your consultation.
Advanced Electrolysis Side Effects
After Advanced Electrolysis, some people find the treated area can often scab and appear red. These side effects are short term and will fade in time.
A course of Advanced Electrolysis is often advised for telangiectasia so that treatments can be spaced out to prevent skin damage or hyper-pigmentation.
Some conditions can be quite resilient and more than one treatment may be necessary, your practitioner will advise based on the response noted.
