01/02: Thread Veins These are 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: sun damage, ageing, smoking, alcohol, hereditary, sports, temperature extremes/harsh weather exposure, hormones and skin fragility.
03: Blood Spots These are bright red vascular blemishes which lie just under the surface of the skin. They can become dome shaped and raised and are most common on the torso. Most people aged over 30 have at least one and they are more prevalent in men than women.
04: Sebaceous Cysts Sebaceous Cysts are usually slow growing, painless, freely movable lumps beneath the skin varying in size from a small pea to a clenched fist size or larger. Occasionally a cyst will become inflamed and tender. Electrolysis treatment is a very safe, effective, quick and affordable method of treatment. Sebaceous Cysts most often arise from swollen hair follicles. Skin trauma can also induce a cyst to form. A sac of cells is created into which a protein called keratin is secreted. These cysts are usually found on the face, neck, and trunk of the body.
05: Spider Naevus This is a central dilated blood vessel with similar capillaries radiating from it like the legs of a spider. They can be found in isolation or gathered together on areas such as the face and décolletage.
06: Skin Tags These are very common and most frequently found on the neck and face. They often appear with a stem like a mushroom and vary in size from a tiny speck, to the size of a pea or larger. They are usually found in areas of friction such as the underarm, folds of the skin, under the breasts or around the neck where necklaces may irritate.
07: Milia These are tiny white hard lumps containing keratin which lie superficially under the surface of the skin and can be easily treated with electrolysis. Their exact cause is unknown although they are often associated with dry dehydrated skin.
08: Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra These smooth, dome shaped brown to black papules seen mainly on the cheeks, neck and upper chest are a common disorder which often develop on dark skin types in adolescence.
09: Warts & Verrucas There are various types of warts including plane, common, seborrhoeic and verrucas. Warts can develop individually or in clusters. Seborrhoeic Keratosis are benign skin lesions which develop as a result of UV damage and skin aging and can grow up to two inches in diameter. All warts can be easily and successfully treated using electrolysis.
10: Moles Hairs in moles can be removed with electrolysis and the size and colour of moles can be visibly reduced. Hairs in mole are generally deep terminal hairs with a very rich blood supply. Repeat treatments are required.
Note: Some blemishes require a GP’S written consent prior to treatment.
