Advanced Electrolysis

Advanced Electrolysis is used for the removal of cosmetic skin imperfections including red veins and skin tags.


Advanced Electrolysis treatment such as thread vein removal or skin tag removal, is a very simple procedure. You come into the clinic, we do a consultation, we check through your medical history and we usually put a little bit of numbing cream onto the area. It’s a very fine hot needle that we just apply to the area that needs treating and it will either cauterise the little blood vessels or it will just take off the skin tag. You’re probably only in clinic for no more than half an hour. I would encourage anyone to come along and have a consultation, anyone who’s interested in any of the treatments that we offer we are very happy for people to just come and have a consultation, we can talk about their requirements and we can just do a general chat so that we can make a nice personalised treatment for them.

What is Advanced Electrolysis?

Advanced Electrolysis is used for the removal of cosmetic skin imperfections by using a small current of electricity to cauterise the problem area on the skin. This procedure can remove blemishes such as: Red Veins, Milia (white spots often around the eyes), Skin Tags and Blood Spots (on the skins surface). Advanced Electrolysis is suitable for all skin types and is an extremely safe treatment with long lasting results. Your treatment will be carried out by our aesthetic nurse who has undertaken advanced training in this procedure.

What can be treated with Advanced Electrolysis?

  • Skin Tags
  • Millia
  • Thread Veins (Telangiectasia – on the face)
  • Blood Spots (Campbell de Morgan spots)
  • Sebaceous Hyperplasia
  • Syringoma
  • Seborrhoeic Keratosis
  • Small Xanthelasma

What does the treatment involve?

This will vary depending on the specific blemish or lesion being removed, but mostly the treatment involves the application of a mild diathermy electrical current into the affected area. The blemish will either be removed straight away or may take a few days to shrink away. In some cases, a topical anaesthetic cream or small injection to numb the area may be used if necessary.

How long does the treatment take?

You will initially have a full consultation  to include a medical questionnaire, and a thorough examination of the blemish to ensure that it is safe to be removed. Once this has been completed the actual treatment generally takes no more than 30 minutes.

If there is any suspicion that the blemish needs further examination, then you will be asked to see your own GP or you can be referred to our plastic surgeon.

How long will the effects last?

Most blemishes, once treated will not return. However, there is  always a risk that the blemish will re-grow, or others may appear in the same area. If this is the case, repeat treatments may be required.


Starts at £75. Treatment time is usually booked in 30 minute sessions.
