skin blemish removal
Diathermy / Short Wave Electrolysis
Thermolysis electrolysis, also known as diathermy or short wave, uses a tiny AC electrical current. This procedure uses heat and cauterisation to treat skin blemishes.
Our therapists are trained by STEREX, the world leader in electrolysis. See our treatments below:
- Skin Tags £35 (10 Mins) £45 (15 mins)
Skin Tags are benign, innocuous growths which vary in size, shape and attachment. They are often found in areas where there is friction, such as where the skin creases or clothes rub. Skin tags (technically known as fibro-vascular papilloma) are increasingly common as we age and affect almost half of the population. While they are benign and do not pose any direct risk to your health, skin tags can easily be removed if they are impacting on your self esteem or mental well-being.
- Thread Veins (face) £35 (10 Mins) £45 (15 mins)
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: sun-damage, hereditary, ageing, pregnancy, physical trauma (e.g injury to the skin), exposure to harsh weather, hormonal changes and skin fragility.
- Spider Naevus £35 (10 Mins) £45 (15 mins)
A spider Naevus consists of a central dialated blood vessel, with smaller capillaries radiating from its legs like a spider. They can be found in isolation or gathered together in clumps on areas such as the cheeks.
- Milia £35 (10 Mins) £45 (15 mins)
These are tiny, white, hard, round spots which lie superficially under the skin and which contain keratin. Their cause is unknown although they are often associated with dry, dehydrated skin.
- Blood Spots £35 (10 Mins) £45 (15 mins)
Bright red, superficial and circular 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 found in men than women.
