Electrolysis has been used for the treatment of thread veins, spider naevi & warts since the early 1900's. Today it has progressed a long way, with improvements in modern technology helping to provide a safe, comfortable & effective treatment that is still very much in demand.

Telangiectasia (Facial Thread Veins)

 

Although commonly known as 'broken capillaries', they are actually just permanently dilated. There are many causes, including ageing, hereditary predisposition, pregnancy, spectacles rubbing against the skin, smoking, energetic sports, exposure to harsh weather conditions, hormones and fragile skin.

 

They are treated using either a diathermy or blend electrolysis technique. Thread veins typically require 2 to 4 appointments at monthly intervals with each session lasting approximately 15-30 minutes, although immediate improvements are visible after the first session.

 

Thread veins may also be reduced elsewhere on the body, including the legs, using a blend electrolysis technique with some success.

Spider Naevus

 

These have a centrally dilated vessel, with smaller capillaries radiating from it like the legs of a spider. They can be found in isolation or gathered together in groups, such as on the cheeks and chest. We treat these with a low diathermy current or blend electrolysis technique. Although they often visibly reduce immediately, some will need further treatment.

Campbell De Morgans (Blood Spots)

 

These are bright red vascular blemishes that lie just under the surface of the skin. They are dome shaped and often found on the midriff, back and front, with most people over 40 having at least one. They are dispersed with a low diathermy electrolysis technique and generally disappear immediately, although some will turn a pale grey and disappear over a few days.

Skin Tags

 

These common blemishes are generally caused by ageing or friction, most often being found around the armpit, bust, neck, groin and eyelids. They often appear with a neck like a mushroom and vary greatly in size. Although viral in nature they only seem to spread on individuals and never between individuals; in this sense they are not contagious.

 

Treatment involves the use of a diathermy current to either destroy the blood supply so that they wither away over a couple of days, or if they are exceptionally large diathermy is used to lift them away immediately. A free follow-up consultation will be offered to ensure results, with free 'top-up' treatment being given should the tag need further work.

Milia (Whiteheads)

 

These are tiny white hard lumps containing sebum and keratin, laying superficially under the skin and usually found around the cheeks and eyes. The exact cause is unknown, but they are often associated with dry skins and the use of unsuitable skincare products. They are easily treated with ACP, a low diathermy current being applied to break down the fatty tissue, thus allowing it to be re-absorbed into the body.

Warts & Verrucas

 

There are many types of warts, including plane, common, verruca and seborrhoeic, all of which are easily treated with diathermy electrolysis. Seborrheic keratosis ('senile warts') are non-contagious but become increasingly common with age, sometimes growing up to 2 inches across.

Age Spots

 

These are caused by an accumulation of yellow pigment formed by ageing collagen cells. Superficial age spots are easily removed using diathermy electrolysis. A crust will form over the area, which soon drops off to leave a colour more closely matching that of the skin.

Moles

 

Hairs from moles can be treated, as can moles themselves. Using diathermy techniques the mole generally reduces in size and colour, becoming levelled with the skin.
