Any annoying blemish, skin growth or imperfection can be treated and removed successfully and quickly. Using advanced electrolysis we can remove fibrous and vascular skin blemishes such as red veins, spider veins, blood spots, skin tags, warts, milia, pigmentation patches and many other marks or lumps and bumps on the skin.
A tried and tested method since the early 1990’s where you can achieve the confidence to face the world.
Many people, including doctors, do not realise the range of blemishes that can be removed by the electrolysist. Most believe that only a dermatologist can remove them. The demand for these procedures is very high as the medical profession is not only too busy but also very reluctant to do anything about benign lesions. They are seen purely as a cosmetic problem regardless of the psychological effect on the person having these unsightly marks on their skin.
Here is a more detailed description of some of the blemishes that can be easily and safely removed with Advanced Electrolysis:
Red veins are also called “thread veins” or “broken capillaries” or “Telangiectasis”. These are a permanent dilation of the small, superficial blood vessels on which are found on the face, neck, around the nose and on the chest of both men and women from the age of 20. They may appear individually or as a very fine network as wavy red lines (thread veins), “red spots” or red spots with red lines radiating from them (Spider Naevi).
They are removed with electrolysis using a very fine probe placed just under the skin’s surface and passing a tiny amount of heat (Short Wave Diathermy) through it to seal off the tiny capillary. This results in the capillary drying up and disappearing. The procedure is a little uncomfortable like a tiny nip or sting – a bit like tweezing a hair out.
These are a concentration of blood present on the surface of the skin and are usually bright red in colour. They may appear as smooth, tiny, red, circular or oval marks on the skin or they may appear as a round, raised lumps and vary in colour from bright red to dark purple. They usually range in size from a pinpoint to about one-fourth of an inch in diameter. They most often grow on the torso, arms, legs, and shoulders.
Cherry Angiomas are permanently removed in just one treatment.
This is a small, raised, centrally dilated blood vessel having the appearance of a blood spot, with smaller dilated capillaries radiating from it, rather like the legs of a spider. They are commonly found on the cheeks and upper chest area and are often caused by damage to the skin (squeezing) or an injury to the face or during pregnancy when hormonal changes occur.
A safe, fast and effective treatment using the tip of the finest, smallest probe is introduced along the line of the blemish and a tiny energy current (Short Wave Diathermy) is discharged. The current heats up and coagulates the tiny capillaries, its contents dispersed and destroyed by the heat and reabsorbed by the body.
The treatment itself can be a little uncomfortable but easily tolerated. Some clients report a slight burning sensation which lasts for just a few seconds.
The area will be a little red, warm and puffy and feel irritated for a few hours after the treatment. Tiny honey coloured crusts/scabs may form on the skins surface after 2 days which fall off after approximately 5 days and may leave a pink patch of skin which fades.
Treatment time and the number of appointments required is dependant upon varying factors such as the skin’s condition and size of the area involved. After some initial redness you will observe some improvement straight away. Over a period of weeks the thread veins will gradually fade, depending on their severity. The greater the area, the more treatments are necessary. This is discussed during the initial consultation.
In the case of Red Spots/Cherry Angioma, only one treatment is required to permanently remove the lesions.
Once capillaries have been successfully treated, it should not return. However it is important to realise that should your skin be prone to the formation of capillaries, others may appear in time.
Healing can take up to 6 weeks, and scabbing is a normal part of the process. The area may remain red and slightly swollen for several hours.
These instructions are designed to promote healing, to avoid irritation and to reduce the risk of infection.
They should be followed until healing is complete.
• If possible, rest after treatment without stimulation for 30 minutes.
• Avoid touching the area and keep it as dry as possible.
• Avoid make-up and moisturisers until the scabs start to form.
• Wash the area with lukewarm water only for the next 24 hours and pat dry. Apply Sterex Gel after each wash for 2 weeks.
• Avoid abrasion of any kind e.g. rough clothes, towels etc.
• Do not exfoliate the area until it is totally healed and the scabs have disappeared.
• No sunbathing or sunbeds. To expose the treated area to sun may result in pigmentation.
• No swimming for up to one month (or until the area is totally healed) as the strong chemicals may irritate the area.
• No impact/vigorous sporting activity for up to one month or until the area is totally healed.
• No hot baths, showers, saunas, steam or other heat treatment of any kind until the area is totally healed.
It is very important that you do not attempt to lift the scabs prematurely-this increases the risk of scarring, pitting or unsuccessful treatment.
A skin tag is a common, harmless and benign skin growth that looks like a small piece of hanging skin which affects both men and women from the age of 30. Although they vary in appearance, they are usually smooth or slightly wrinkled and irregular, flesh coloured or slightly browner. Early skin tags are as small as a flattened pin point bump that can grow up to as large as a grape. They typically occur on the neck, underarms, eyelids, under the breast and in the groin-in a location where the skin is constantly rubbed against skin or clothing.
The aim of the treatment is to cut off the blood supply to the growth so that it withers and dies. The tags turn a little darker in colour, shrink and form a small scab which drops of within 2-5 days (depending on the size).

Seborrhoeic warts are not true warts as they are not caused by a virus. They can vary greatly in appearance and can be any colour from skin colour to very dark brown. They are oval or round and can be anything from a couple of millimetres to a few centimetres across. Although raised above the skin they have a flat surface which usually has grooves in it, and are completely benign (non cancerous).
They can be dry and crumbly and occur with age – usually from age 40 onwards – and can appear on any area of the face or body. They can be hereditary and some people have a great many of them. They can also occur singly.
They are removed by applying the heat energy of electrolysis to the base and are gently scraped off. Sometimes a second treatment is required, especially with larger ones.

Age spots (also known as sun spots and liver spots), are harmless yellow or brown flat discolourations of the skin. They are mostly found on the back of the hands, forearms, face and shoulders in people above the age of 40. They are commonly a sign of sun damage by having the skin exposed to the sun over many years. They can be quickly and successfully removed. The aftercare and after effects are the same as “Skin Tag” removal.
These are tiny, hard, white dots located under the upper layer of the skin. They contain a build up of solidified sebum (the skin’s natural oil) from the oil glands and are often found around the eye area, on the cheeks, nose and chin. Some experts believe that milia are caused by sun induced changes as the skin ages or dry, dehydrated skin (due to poor skincare or facial products which are too strong). Others believe use of overly rich skin creams are the cause or a generic predisposition towards them. They are treated by applying the heat energy of electrolysis to them.
After treatment a tiny, pin-dot crust will form which will heal and fall away – usually within a few days – leaving no marking at all.

These are smooth, dome-shaped little dark spots on the skin which are actually just very small seborrhoeic warts/crusts. Dermatosis papulosa nigra affects up to 35% of blacks and an unknown proportion of Asians. Women are affected more than men. Dermatosis papulosa nigra usually begins in adolescence, and the number and size of lesions increase with age. They are easily removed using electrolysis to gently scrape them off leaving no mark.
The surrounding skin may appear red and feel warm for a few hours after the treatment. There is no scarring, no side effects on the skin and only a short healing time.
For 2-3 days after removal, bathe the area only in cool water and avoid the use of products on the skin e.g. soap, cleanser, moisturiser, perfumed products, make-up and deodorant as this may pose an infection risk. Each time the area is bathed, apply Sterex Gel as this is anti-bacterial and promotes the healing of the skin. Keep applying this over the treated area until the healing is complete.
