Advanced electrolysis is a minor cosmetic procedure which uses a thermolysis current and a very fine needle to either cauterise or lift away the superficial epidermis, depending on the blemish that is to be treated. This electricity causes the water molecules in the cells around the needle to vibrate, creating heat. Eventually, this heat damages and destroys the cells the treatment is targeting. This is usually a permanent treatment and takes very little time to perform.
Advanced electrolysis or ‘Short wave diathermy’ is ideal for treating over 21 different types of blemishes
anywhere on the face or body – this includes:
Thread Veins/Broken Capillaries
Moles- only with doctors’ consent
Before your treatment
Firstly you would be invited for a free, non-obligation consultation with our specialist Erika who will assess the treated area, explain the procedure, answer any questions you might have.
During your treatment
We will apply a numbing cream on the treated area and after we will use the heated, small needle over the blemish or within the skin to conduct the electrical current.
The results from electrolysis are permanent, however if you are suffering from a skin condition, the new blemishes/ broken capillaries might appear again.
Although you should be able to return to your usual activities after advanced electrolysis, if the treatment area is visible, you may want to arrange the procedure for when you have a quiet couple of days to give the scabs a chance to heal. You will be given your aftercare advise, including antiseptic cream. You will need to keep the treated area clean to allow it to heal without any complications or infection.
