Advanced Cosmetic Electrolysis

Advanced Cosmetic Procedures (ACP) treatments using electrolysis are becoming increasingly popular as knowledge about these fantastic treatments increases.

With advanced cosmetic electrolysis, a wide diversity of skin blemishes can be quickly and easily treated with immediate and effective results offering an eventual blemish free skin.

See below for details of conditions that can be treated:

Thread Veins

Thread Veins:

These are 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, sun damage, hereditary, pregnancy, trauma (e.g. the rubbing of spectacles and smoking), energetic sports, temperature extremes, harsh weather exposure, hormones and skin fragility are also common causes. They are also commonly seen in a maturing ‘English Rose’ complexion.


Blood Spots:

Bright red, superficial vascular blemishes these are often dome shaped or slightly raised and are frequently found on the midriff. Most people aged over 30 have at least one and they are often more common in men than women.

spider neavus

Spider Naevus:

A spider naevus is a 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 such as the cheeks.

Skin Tags

Skin Tags:

Skin tags are very common and most frequently found on the neck and face. 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. They are often found in areas of friction such as the underarm, groin, under the breasts or around the neck where necklaces may irritate.



These are tiny, white, hard, round spots containing keratin which lie under the surface of the skin. Their exact cause is unknown although they are often associated with dry, dehydrated skin.

Seborrhoeic Keratosis

Seborrhoeic Keratosis

These are benign proliferation of epidermal cells with a ‘stuck on’ appearance and ‘lip’ or distinctive edge.

They often appear in the 40+ age group, they are non viral even though they are part of the wart family.

They can grow in groups, merge into each other or be singular. They are quite common with increasing age. They are usually brown because of melanin and so can be mistaken for moles.

Common warts:

These are common on hands and fingers but can occur elsewhere, they are viral. They are raised dome shaped, have roots and rough surface.

Plantar Warts:

More commonly known as Verrucae. These are found on the soles and toes of the feet. They are notoriously resilient to methods of removal. A verruca starts as a tiny pink blemish, it may be speckled with black dots, becoming dark with a crumbly layer of skin. They vary in size from a pinhead upwards.

Sebaceous Cysts:

These cysts are usually found on the face, neck and trunk of the body. They are slow growing, painless lumps varying in size from a small pea up to a clenched fist size or larger. They can become inflamed and tender. Skin trauma can induce a cyst as can genetic links.

Sebaceous Hyperplasia:

This is a disorder of the sebaceous gland, these present as a milky yellow donut shaped lesion. They can be single or multiple. This is a common, non contagious benign condition. Usually found in middle age to older patients.


This is a deposit of fatty materials commonly found on the eyelids. The exact cause is unknown.

Hairs in Moles/and/or Mole Reduction

This treatment is only offered after a thorough consultation and supported by a doctor’s letter of approval.
