Advanced Cosmetic procedures

Today electro micro surgery has progressed a long way and with ongoing improvements and technology it is a safe, comfortable and effective treatment increasingly in demand. Probably the least invasive, minimal and effective method of treatment for such a wide variety of blemishes electrolysis has to be the most sensible and safe choice. Results are often instantaneous, pleasing and life enhancing.

How it works

Using a magnifying lamp, the tip of the finest, smallest probe possible (about the size of an eyelash) is introduced along the line of the capillary and a tiny energy current is discharged, this then dries up and destroys the vessel which often disappears as it is being treated. In the case of Skin Tags the current destroys the vessels feeding the blemish thus starving it of any nourishment resulting in its demise.

Thread Veins / Red Veins / Broken Capillaries

These conditions are most commonly found on the legs and face, particularly around the nose and cheeks. They can be caused by many factors, including ageing, pregnancy, harsh weather and smoking. The fine probe is put on to the vein (not in) and then an electrical current is released. The current will cauterise the vein, causing the blood to coagulate, come to the surface and then disappear.

Spider Naevus / Blood Spots (Campbell de Morgan spots)

Spider Naevus is a central, dilated blood vessel with capillaries radiating away from the centre. They can be found in isolation or grouped together in areas such as the cheeks.

Blood spots are bright red, vascular blemishes which develop on the body (very often on the trunk or torso) and develop naturally as the skin ages and cell renewal slows down. They are known as Campbell de Morgan spots.

Skin tags / Warts / Milia / Dermatosa Papulosa Nigra

Skin tags are very common and usually found around the neck, bra strap area, eye lids or areas of friction such as the underarm. They are harmless but can be both unsightly and irritating. There are various types of warts, including common, plain, seborrheic (more common with age) and verruca, which can develop individually or in groups. All types of warts are benign and can be treated successfully.

Milia are very small, white, hard keratin-filled cysts which lie superficially under the surface of the skin, commonly around the eye area.

Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra is a very common disorder which develops during adolescence on black skin, causing round shaped, black papules on the cheeks neck and chest.

Age Spots

The term ‘age spot’, or lentigines, refers to the brownish spots that, over time appear on the face and body as a result of over exposure to the sun. As we age our skin is subjected to more and more sun damage. Our skin produces ‘melanin pigment’ which absorbs sunlight and helps naturally to protect our skin from UV rays. However, as we age, our skin’s natural ability to fend off UV rays from the sun begins to deteriorate, and as a result, we see the development of age spots. These age spots can be effectively removed and treated with electro micro surgery.

How long will the treatment take?

The time taken to treat any of these conditions will depend on the size, number and nature of the problem. Skintalks will advise during the consultation if a blemish can be treated in one session or if a course of treatment is likely to be required. The area must not be over treated and your skin reactivity will be taken into account.

During the consultation process all potential risks and side effects will be discussed in full.

An individual treatment plan will be developed to meet your specific needs.
