Electrolysis

Electrolysis is considered a safe and effective method of reducing unwanted hair.

The electrolysis process involves inserting a thin metal probe into the hair follicle using Diathermy and Galvanic. Once accomplished, electricity is delivered through the probe to the hair follicle, as a result disables the hair. Many factors like medication, hereditary, illness and hormones and stimulate the hair growth so most if not all clients will be required to return for several treatments, the amount needed can vary from client to client. This treatment is great for those clients that have those few irritating hairs remaining after laser or IPL.

A full course of treatment is neccessary.

How does Advanced Electrolysis work?

A small probe is used to apply a tiny amount of heat to the unwanted lesion. This coagulates the targeted area, destroying the cause. Advanced electrolysis is a superficial treatment with effective results and has a very low risk of any side effects. When treating some of the conditions they can look worse before they get better. Effects of this treatment can be seen immediately, however on occasions may take up to four weeks.

 

How long will it take and how many treatments will I require?

In some cases, the results can be instant, others can improve after one treatment within a week to 4 weeks after healing, others you may need a few treatments to see the end results. The time taken to treat any of these conditions will depend on the size, number and nature of the problem. We cannot over work an area due to skin reactions which is why sometimes a few treatments are required.

 

What skin blemishes do we treat?

 

Telangiectasia / thread veins

These are not broken capillaries but rather 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

 

Skin Blemishes

Blemishes are marks or areas of discoloration on the skin. They can be raised off of the skin or flat, and come in a range of colours. Since there are many different types of blemishes with many different causes, the treatment for each is a little different. Your therapist will advise through consultation if it is a blemish we can treat.

 

Spider Naevus

Central dilated blood vessel, with smaller capillaries radiating from it like the legs of a spider. Thread veins and spider naevus have many causes including: ageing, hereditary, pregnancy, the rubbing of spectacles, continuous nose blowing, smoking, energetic sports, temperature extremes and harsh weather exposure, hormones and skin fragility.

 

Milia

These are tiny white hard lumps containing keratin which lie superficially under the surface of the skin and can be easily treated with ACP techniques. Their exact cause is unknown although they are often associated with dry skin which can be acidic.

 

Skin tags

Also known as Filiform warts or Fibro-Epithelial Polyps. Skin tags are very common and most frequently found on the neck and face. They are often found in areas of friction such as the underarm, under the breasts or around the neck where necklaces may irritate.

 

Cherry angioma

Also known as Blood spots or Blood moles, Campbell de Morgan spots and Cherry spots. These are bright red vascular blemishes which lie just under the surface of the skin.

 

Warts and Verruca’s

There are various types of warts, including plane, common, seborrhoeic and verrucae. Warts can develop individually or in clusters. Hard, grainy growths.

 

Is there anything that I should or should not do following electrolysis?

In order to achieve optimum results, it is critical to adhere to the following advice for a minimum of 24hrs following treatment:

  • Avoid exercise as this produces added heat to the skin
  • Do not use a steam room or sauna
  • Avoid sunbathing (including the use of sun beds)
  • Make-up should not be applied
  • Avoid contact with water (not applicable after hair removal)
  • Avoid alcohol or perfumed based products on the area
  • Prevent stretching and touching the treated area
