Advanced Electrolysis (thermocoagulation) method in treatment of skin blemishes
Skin blemishes can be particularly inconvenient and distressing for both men and women, who may try to conceal skin defects, such as blood spots, seborrhoeic keratoses or unsightly skin tags.
Benign skin conditions are no longer treated under the NHS due to the lack of funding. However, if your lesion is growing, changing shape and colour and starts to bleed, you are advised to see you GP to rule out more serious conditions.
Over 20 different types of skin blemishes can be successfully treated or removed using Advanced Electrolysis which uses short-wave diathermy, i.e. the thermolysis method, to treat fibrous, viral and vascular lesions.
Diathermy or thermocoagulation is a tried and tested method that has been popular in various forms since the 1800's. This precision technique is used to coagulate certain cutaneous imperfections. It remains a safe and affordable way of dealing with skin blemishes. Often referred as Advanced Cosmetic Procedures, or Advanced Electrolysis, the treatment uses radiofrequencies to treat or remove unsightly lesions.
Thread veins, spider naevi, milia, epidermoid cysts, age spots, blood spots, seborrhoeic keratosis, warts, moles and many other benign lesions can be successfully removed. Most people only need one treatment. This treatment is performed by an experienced electrologist with special training in Advanced Cosmetic Procedures. A very fine probe is placed just under the surface of the skin and some heat energy is applied to cauterise and seal off the capillaries. 
There are some contraindications to the electrolysis treatment. ​Following the procedure, the treated area may scab and appear red, but this is temporary. Over the next few days the scab will disappear revealing new skin. Correct home aftercare is very important.

A consultation is required to assess client suitability. A thorough examination of moles is carried out  before proceeing with any mole treatment and a GP's consent may be sought for the removal of some moles. To find out more or to book a free consultation, please telephone 07753-423395.
