What is Advanced Electrolysis?
Skin Tag and blemish removal by advanced electrolysis
Advanced electrology is also known as non-surgical blemish removal. The treatment uses electrical currents to safely remove red veins, red spots, skin tags and white bumps (milia).
Skin tags are harmless and benign skin growths that are most often found on the neck, under the bra and arm area and in the groin. They can appear in various colours from flesh to dark brown. They can be just slightly raised, or they will have a stalk or neck like a mushroom or they may have a flat neck.
Clients that develop several skin tags may have a genetic predisposition as this condition often runs in families. They tend to start appearing with age especially in people over 50 years of age. Friction is the likely contributing factor as they appear in the areas where clothes may rub, such as collar lines, bra straps, underarms and groin etc. Treatment with electrolysis is quick and easy and very successful. Very little evidence is left of the skin tags presence.
What happens in a treatment session?
The surrounding area is sterilised. A fine needle is inserted into the lesion to cauterise the blood supply, rendering the lesion dead skin. Most of the lesion will fall off at the time, but any remaining skin will continue to dry up and drop off, in the same way as a scab would. If the tag was attached over a large area, a small white mark might remain once the dead skin has dropped off; this will not normally return to your natural skin colour. Many can be treated at the same time.
Melanoma is caused mainly by intense, occasional UV exposure that may have frequently led to sunburn, especially in those who are genetically predisposed to the disease.
About 1 in 10 of people with a melanoma have family members who have also had one. There are several reasons for this. Fair skin is inherited; dysplastic naevi can run in families, as can a tendency to have large numbers of ordinary moles.
Melanomas may not cause any symptoms at all but tingling or itching might occur at an early stage. Some melanomas start as minor changes in the size, shape or colour of an existing mole whilst others begin as a dark area that can look like a new mole. Later on, a melanoma may feel hard and lumpy, and bleed, ooze or crust up.
All melanomas do not look the same, and there are several different types.
The ABCD system tells you some of the things to look out for.
A melanoma may show one or more of the following features:
the two halves of the area differ in their shape.
the edges of the area may be irregular or blurred, and sometimes show notches.
this may be uneven. Different shades of black, brown and pink may be seen.
most melanomas are at least 6 mm. in diameter.
Melanomas can appear on any part of the body, but they are most common in men on the body, and in women on the legs.
At first, a basal cell carcinoma comes up like a small “pearly” bump that looks like a flesh-coloured mole or a pimple that doesn’t go away. Sometimes these growths can look dark. Or the client may also see shiny pink or red patches that are slightly scaly.
Another symptom to watch out for is a waxy, hard skin growth. Basal cell carcinomas are also fragile and can bleed easily.
