Advanced Electrolysis

Electrolysis is most commonly thought of as a hair removal technique.  However, the needle and electrical current can also be used in a slightly different way to remove a wide range of skin blemishes, including skin tags, warts, verrucas, thread veins, blood spots and milia (white spots).  This is known as Advanced Electrolysis (or electro surgery).

Treatment is usually fast and effective and it is becoming an increasingly popular choice for both men and women.

Depending on the size and severity of the veins and blemishes, we will either treat you in the clinic or we may refer you to a specialist.

Frequently Asked

What will happen during the treatment?

Using a magnifying lamp, we will insert a tiny, sterile needle into the skin blemish then pass an electrical current through it.  This kills the tissue and cauterises the veins.

Is electrolysis painful?

No.   Most patients say they feel a sensation of heat, rather than pain.
However, anaesthetic cream may be applied on more sensitive areas (if preferred).

Will the blemish go immediately?

The time taken to treat any of these conditions will depend on the size, number and nature of the problem.  Some blemishes will be gone in one treatment.  Others will require a longer course.
Your experienced practitioner will be able to advise you.
