Skin Legions Removal

We can remove skin tags, moles, millia, red veins, keratosis and warts using either advanced electrolysis or the plasma pen.

How Does Plasma Energy Work?

There are 4 commonly known states of matter which consists of solid, liquid, gas and plasma.

Plasma comprises of an ionised gas charged with equal amounts of negative and positive charged electrons when it hits the atmosphere, in the air to create a small electrical arc, similar to a very small bolt of lightning, and hits the skin, it evaporates any liquid in the skin at the exact point of contact and burns the lesions on impact, therefore it is crucial to carry out treatment with control, precision and accuracy to avoid the risk of damaging the tissue.

The plasma pen will deliver millisecond pulses of energy to the skin which converts into thermal energy.

Skin Tags

What do skin tags look like?

Skin tags are made up of loose fibrous tissue and hang from the surface of the skin. Skin tags vary in size and shape from a grain of rice to a pea. They are commonly found on areas of friction such as the neck, under arms, top of the thighs and bra line.

What causes the skin tags?

Commonly found near the bra line or collar line areas which are mainly caused by friction, sun damage and sometime inherited through genes.

How is skin tag treated with the Plasma pen?

Skin tags are sliced off with the plasma energy in seconds which does not cause any pain, bleeding or damage to the skin or tissue.

The skin tag can only be sliced off with a Plasma pain if it is hanging, the flatter ones are treated and left to shrink, get darker and will fall off within 5 days.

Milia

What do Milia look like?

Milia is raised under the skin, they are clear or white spots that look like clusters or white heads but cannot be squeezed out.

What does Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra look like?

DPN are harmless and tend to affect people with a darker skin tone. They look like small dark black bumps that usually appear on the face or neck.

What are the main causes of Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra?

Common only in darker skin, and usually caused by extreme sun damage. *For some people this is hereditary

What are the main causes of Milia?

Milia is generally found around the face and is caused by a combination of things such as overproduction of sebum in the skin, residue of mineral oil, lanolin from cheap skincare products and poor skin cleansing routine. When the pore is full and cannot cope the material goes out of the pore and to a nearby space under the skin, where the material oxidizes, goes hard and forms the white pus.

Milia cannot be squeezed like pustules and comedones because they not in a pore and are trapped in the skin outside of the pore.

Milia around the eyes are usually caused by a dairy intolerance or eye products that are oil based.

What should you do to avoid having Milia?

Stop using products high in mineral oil, lanolin, and heavy moisturisers. Keep the skin oil free, use salicylic acid based products and exfoliate the skin regularly.

Thread Veins

These are 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: ageing, sun-damage, hereditary, pregnancy, trauma e.g. the rubbing of spectacles and smoking. Extreme sports, extreme temperatures, hormones and skin fragility are also common causes. They are commonly seen in a maturing ‘English rose’ complexion.

Blood Spots

These are bright red, superficial vascular blemishes that are often dome shaped or slightly raised and are frequently found on the midriff. Most people aged over 30 have at least one and they are often more common in men than women.

Spider Naevus

A Spider Naevus is a central dilated blood vessel, with smaller capillaries radiating from it like the legs of a spider. They can be found in isolation or gathered together in clumps on areas such as the cheeks.

Warts

There are various types of warts including plane, common, liliform and verrucas and all can be easily and successfully treated using electrolysis. These type of warts can develop individually or in clusters and are highly contagious.

Seborrhoeic Keratosis

Although these are classified as part of the wart family they are not contagious and very common on the head, face and body. Associated with increasing age, mature skin and sun damage they also be hereditary. Growing up to 2 inches across they are often dry, crusty and considered cosmetically unattractive.

Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra

Is a common papular disorder which develops in adolescence on black skin and is identified by smooth, dome shaped, brown to black papules seen mainly on the cheeks, neck and upper chest.

Moles

Hairs from moles can be treated by those trained in ACP techniques. Once you start treatment the mole may reduce in size and colour. Hairs in moles are generally deep terminal hairs with a very rich blood supply. Repeat treatments with electrical epilation are required. Moles respond extremely well to electrolysis and treatment is very effective, visibly reducing the size and often lightening the colour of the mole.

Your Questions Answered

(1) How long is a treatment and how many will I require?

ACP treatments are safe and effective and offer instant results in many cases. Length of treatments depend on the area that needs treating and will be advised during your consultation. The area must not be over-treated and your skin reactivity will be taken into account. Spacing technique and treatment intervals will be carefully considered in a treatment plan by the professional as well as your requirements.

(2) How are Thread Veins treated?

The tip of the finest, smallest probe is introduced along the line of the capillary and high frequency energy is discharged. This ‘dries up’ and destroys the vessel which often disappears as it is being treated. Further treatments may be necessary depending on the severity of the area being treated.

(3) How are Skin Tags treated?

There are a number of different techniques depending on the area and size of the skin tag. Results are effective, instant and permanent for the tags treated.

(4) Will my blemishes return?

The treated blemish should not return but others may come through depending on the area.

(5) Mixing electrolysis methods

The method chosen is a decision the electrolysis specialist will make and will be determined by the blemish(es), condition of the skin, client compatibility and equipment.
