The battle with unwanted hair, and the removal of it, is for many an ongoing one and most people think about how to remove
hair effectively and permanently at some point.
Waxing and shaving, the most popular methods of hair
removal, offer good results, but are unfortunately not good permanent hair removal methods. The effects from these procedures
are only temporary, meaning that they will get rid of hair effectively, but the hair will always grow back within a matter
of days or weeks. Maintaining the hair removal can result in a costly, continuing process.
is one form of permanent hair removal which really does give permanent results and some say is therefore the best hair removal
method. Electrolysis is able to get rid of hair by completely destroying the hair follicle, so that it will never grow back.
Advanced Cosmetic Procedures (ACP) using Electrolysis
are becoming increasingly popular as knowledge about these fantastic treatments increases.

affected your confidence and wellbeing recently or throughout your life.
Many people do not realise the range
of blemishes that can be removed by an Advanced Electrolysist. Most believe that only a dermatologist can remove them. Many
individuals are alarmed when they see an unusual growth and find it far less frightening to ask their electrolysist for advice
The demand for these procedures is very high due to the psychological effect on the person
having the unsightly marks, lumps and bumps on their skin.
Here is a more detailed description of some of the blemishes that
can be easily and safely removed with Advanced Electrolysis:
not broken capillaries but rather 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, hereditary, pregnancy, the rubbing of spectacles, smoking, energetic sports, temperature extremes and harsh weather
exposure, hormones and skin fragility. They are commonly seen in a maturing 'English Rose' complexion.
These are bright red vascular blemishes, which lie just
under the surface of the skin. They are dome shaped or slightly raised and are most common on the trunk or torso and particularly
the midriff back or front. Most people aged over 30 have at least one and they are even more common in men than women.
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
on areas such as cheeks.
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, under the breasts
or around the neck where necklaces may irritate.
These are tiny white hard lumps containing keratin, which lie
superficially under the surface of the skin and can be easily treated with ACP techniques. Their exact cause is unknown although
they are often associated with dry skin, which can be acidic.
There are various types of warts, including plane, common, seborrhoeic
and verrucas. All can be easily and successfully treated. Warts can develop individually or in clusters. Seborrhoeic warts
become more common with increasing age and can grow up to two inches across.
|Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra
This is a common disorder, which develops
in adolescence on black skin and is identified by smooth, dome shaped, brown to black papules seen mainly on the cheeks, neck
and upper chest.
Hairs from moles (and moles
themselves) can be treated by those trained in ACP techniques. Once treatment has started the mole may reduce in size
and colour. Hairs in moles are generally deep terminal hairs with a very rich blood supply. Repeat treatments,
as with electrical epilation are required.

treatable skin conditions such as:
Sebaceouscysts, Age Spots,
Xanthelasma and other
Note: Some blemishes
require a GP's written consent
prior to treatment.
