How do these treatments work & what is Electrolysis??  

Hair Removal

Electrolysis treats each hair follicle individually with a very fine, disposable, sterile probe to destroy the hair follicle’s ability to reproduce, thereby eradicating or reducing hair growth on completion of a course of treatment depending on each clients medical back ground.

All areas, apart from the inside of the nose and inner ear, can be treated.

The most common areas for women to be treated are facial areas, (top lip, chin, neck, cheeks, eyebrows) breasts, abdomen, underarms, bikini line, legs, fingers and toes.

The most common areas for men are the upper arms, around the ears, top of the nose, eyebrows, top of the back, cheeks above the line of the beard, around the edges of the beard and any areas where ingrown hairs are causing problems

Trans-gender/transsexual females often require full beard, chest hair removal, legs and underarms

It is also safe to have this treatment during pregnancy, the treatment would be adjusted during this time. please make sure you notify us before the treatment

Thread Veins & Skin Tags

Electrolysis can be used for minor skin blemishes, such as warts, spider or thread veins, milia & skin tags. For both hair growth & removal of thread veins, the heat generated by an electrical current can be used. The equipment used for thread veins & skin tags is virtually the same as for hair removal, but the principle and technique is different.

An extremely thin sterilized disposable probe is used and this is connected to a special electrolysis unit which is capable of producing a tiny heat charge. The heated charge will be passed into the probe. The probe is then inserted into the spider veins, one by one, & the heated current is applied. There is a small amount of discomfort whilst this is taking place but it is not unbearable. The current produces enough heat to cauterize or seal the veins, which prevents any more blood flow through them. Once sealed, the vein is effectively useless, and may be simply reabsorbed  or removed by the body.
