What skin blemishes does Advanced Electrolysis treat?2023-06-20T08:29:26+00:00

Outlined below is a brief description of some of the blemishes that can be easily and safely removed with Advanced Electrolysis:
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.

There are numerous causes including: ageing, hereditary, pregnancy, the rubbing of spectacles, smoking, energetic sports, temperature extremes and harsh weather exposure, hormones and skin fragility.

Spider Naevus
Central dilated blood vessel, with smaller capillaries radiating from it like the legs of a spider. They can be found in isolation or gathered together in clumps on areas such as cheeks.

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. They often appear with a neck like a mushroom and vary in size from a tiny speck, smaller than a grain of uncooked rice, to the size of a large pea or even larger.

Cherry angioma
Also known as Blood spots or Blood moles, Campbell de Morgan spots and Cherry spots. They are most commonly found on the torso but can occur anywhere on the body. These are bright red vascular blemishes which lie just under the surface of the skin. They are usually dome shaped or slightly raised. Most people aged over 30 have at least one and they are more commonly seen on men more than women.

There are various types of warts, including plane, common, seborrhoeic and verrucas. All can be easily and successfully treated. Warts can develop individually or in clusters. Seborrhoeic warts become more common with increasing age and can grow up to two inches across.

Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra
This is a common disorder which develops in adolescence on black skin and is identified by smooth, dome shaped, brown to black papules seen mainly on the cheeks, neck and upper chest.

How long will it take and how many treatments will I require?2023-06-20T08:28:37+00:00

Advanced electrolysis is a very safe, comfortable and effective treatment and offers instantaneous results in many cases. The time taken to treat any of these conditions will depend on the size, number and nature of the problem. The area work must not be over treated and your skin reactivity will also be taken into account. Spacing technique and treatment intervals will be carefully considered and a treatment plan will be recommended.

Will my blemishes return?2023-06-20T08:27:27+00:00

The treated blemish will not return but others may occur depending on the root cause. You will be advised more specifically, during your consultation.

How does Advanced Electrolysis work?2023-06-20T08:27:00+00:00

The finest,tiny probe is used to apply a small amount of heat to the unwanted lesion. This coagulates (cooks) the targeted area, destroying the cause. The procedure is superficial, effective, and has a very low risk of any side effects. However, it is possible for the treated area to look worse before it looks better. Effects of this treatment can be seen immediately, however on occasions may take up to four weeks.

What is Advanced Electrolysis?2023-06-20T08:26:29+00:00

As far back as the early 1900’s electrolysis was being used for the treatment of port-wine marks, broken capilliaries, spider naevi, warts and even xanthoma (yellow pigmented spots or plates found on the eyelids).
Today it has progressed a long way and with ongoing improvements and modern technology it is safe, comfortable and effective way of removing skin blemishes.


Advanced electrolysis - thread veins

The treatment was quick, with minimal discomfort and the results have been unbelievable, - well worth it!. I no longer need to apply heavy make-up in attempt to disguise the red thread veins on my nose and cheek area.

Mary, aged 49 – Luton
Advanced electrolysis - milia

I had treatment for some milia around my eyes and mouth area. The treatment was affordable, comfortable and effective. The milia have completely disappeared. Advanced electrolysis really is the answer.

Peter, aged 44 – Milton Keynes
Advanced electrolysis - skin tag

I noticed that I had developed several skin tags under my arm and breast area. They started out quite small but unfortunately seemed to get progressively larger over time. I was feeling more and more conscious of them and they were often irritated by certain items of clothing. In one session the skin tags had been completely removed, I was left with no marks or scars. I am so delighted with the result. Thanks again!

Mandy , aged 31 – Leighton Buzzard
Advanced electrolysis - skin tag

I had 3 small skin tags under my right eye. They bothered me as they were so close to the eye that I kept getting mascara on them which made them look like big black spots. I had a 15 minute session of advanced electrolysis on them at Bodilight. The treatment was a little bit uncomfortable, but tolerable. The skin tags fell off one or two days after the treatment, leaving a small red blemish that disappeared after about a week. I am very impressed with the treatment and would recommend it to anyone that wishes to get rid of these annoying skin tags.
