Blemish Free Smooth Skin
Advanced Electrolysis now called Advanced Cosmetic Procedures. This specialty treatment uses Short Wave Diathermy (High Frequency A/C) to treat unwanted skin blemishes and lesions.
ACP treatments are safe and effective and offer instantaneous results in many cases. Length of treatment very much depends on the problem and your skin specialist will advise you of this although it is difficult to state a definitive time. The area worked on must not be over-treated and your skin reactivity will be taken into account.
Spacing technique and treatment intervals will be carefully considered in a treatment plan by the professional as well as taking into account your requirements, needs and wishes.

Frequently Asked Questions
Red Veins and Rosacea
Small Blood Spots (Campbell de Morgan Spots or Cherry Angioma)
They present themselves as slightly raised or dome shaped red spots and are of unknown origin. They are mostly seen on the trunk in middle aged and elderly clients and are even more common in men than women. Larger ones (50p size+) will need more than one treatment. Smaller ones often disappear at time of treatment.
Skin Tags (Fibroepithelial polyp/papilloma)
Millia are small white lumps lying superficially under the surface of the skin. They are a retention of keratin and sebaceous material within the pilosebaceous duct, eccrine sweat duct, or the sebaceous collar surrounding vellus hair. Their exact cause is unknown although they are often related to diet with a high cholesterol count, excessive Vitamin C, too rich moisturising cream and are also associated with dry skin which can be acidic.
They can all be treated easily with ACP which gently dries them up so that the hard keratinised centre is broken down and this will then be absorbed by the skin following treatment. This is a much gentler way to treat them, as opposed to removing them with a microlance, which can damage the skin.
Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra
Seborrhoeic keratosis is a benign, asymptomatic mass, primarily caused by the ageing process. It is also known as seborrhoeic warts, senile warts, barnacles or basal cell papilloma. They have a thick wart-like surface and are usually colourless when they appear and become brown to black over time. Seborrhoeic keratosis can be confused with other skin conditions, so it is advisable to seek a GP’s advice before visiting an electrologist.
