If you ever felt embarrassed by what you feel are unsightly skin blemishes on your face or body. We will discuss your concerns, explain the process used, the likely effects of treatment and your home care requirements.

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, injury), exposure to harsh weather, hormonal changes and skin fragility are also common causes.

Blood Spots
Bright red, superficial vascular blemishes. These 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 consists of a central dilated blood vessel, with smaller capillaries radiating from it like legs of a spider. They can be found in isolation or gathered together in clumps on areas such as the cheeks.
Skin Tags
Skin tags are often found in areas of friction such as underarm, groin, under the breasts or around the neck where necklaces and collars irritate. They often appear with a stalk like a mushroom and vary in size from a tiny speck, smaller than a grain of uncooked rice, to the size of a large pea or even larger.
Milia
These are tiny, white, hard, round spots containing keratin which lie superficially under the surface of the skin. Their cause is unknown although they are often associated with dry, dehydrated skin.
Warts
There are various types of warts including plane, common, filiform and verruca’s and all can be easily and successfully treated using electrolysis. These types 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. They are very common on the head, face and body, associated mainly with increasing age, mature skins and sun damage. They also have genetic links. Growing up to two inches wide, they are often dry, crusty and considered cosmetically unattractive.
Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra
This 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 nd upper chest.
Hairs in Moles
Hair in moles can also be treated and once treatment has started the mole may even reduce in size and colour. These hairs are generally very deep terminal hairs with a rich blood supply which require repeat treatments.
Mole Reduction
Moles respond extremely well to ACP. Treatment is very effective in visibly reducing the appearance of the mole if pigmented, often lightening it too.
