How does ACP with advanced electrolysis work?

Advanced Cosmetic Procedures (ACP) used with electrolysis effectively removes unwanted skin blemishes such as skin tags, warts, moles, red veins, mila and much more. Blemishes and marks can be unsightly and even disfiguring, affecting your confidence and self-esteem. With ACP and electrolysis, they can be efficiently and quickly removed, with little or no residual marking on the skin.

Advanced electrolysis uses a very fine needle to produce a heating effect in the structure of the skin, cauterising and removing the skin imperfection. You may feel a slight stinging sensation, but the treatment is quick with no prolonged pain.

Where can ACP with advanced electrolysis be used?

Red thread veins – commonly found on cheeks, nose, upper chest and upper back. Dilated capillaries often caused by sun, smoking, UVA and UVB, extreme weather conditions or hereditary reasons

Spider veins – a collection of vessels often surrounding a central ‘blood spot’. Commonly found on cheeks, nose, below eyes, upper chest and back of hands

Blood spots – flat or protruding bright red spots which can be found anywhere on the face or body

Milia – tiny white pearly cysts commonly found on cheeks and under eye area

Keratosis – benign, oval-shaped, slightly raised and textured lesions. Can be either coloured or pale, and commonly found on the body and/or face

Skin tags – soft and can be wriggled around, varying in size, shape and colour. Commonly found on the neck, underarm, groin and eye area. Often increase with age and friction.

Seborrhoeic warts – benign growths, often hereditary, which occur in middle age. A crumbly, oily texture, found on the head, trunk and extremities

Age spots and pigmentation marks – normally found on the face, arms and hands. Generally sun-induced, hereditary and particularly common on sun-sensitive individuals

Moles – please note, a referral letter from your GP will be needed for all mole reduction treatments


Advanced electrolysis is usually described as mildly uncomfortable, and shouldn’t hurt. You will experience a warming and stinging sensation, which is pleasant to some people and easily manageable to most.

After your advanced electrolysis treatment, you will likely notice redness and swelling in your skin for the first 24 hours. Your skin will also develop some fine crusts in the treated area. These are completely normal and a sign your skin is healing after treatment. It is important you don’t touch or pick off the crusts or scabs as this could affect your results. This healing stage could last from 5-14 days.

The length of time before you will see results will vary depending on your individual skin and area treated. Generally, the scabs and crusts on your skin will fade after two weeks, with your end result visible after one month. At your initial consultation, we discuss this in detail with you and give you an idea of your timescales.

It is essential a thorough consultation and possible patch test is taken to gather the correct information and discuss the possibilities of this fantastic treatment.
