Advanced electrolysis is a specialised technique we can use alone or in combination with skin peels, IPL and laser treatments to work towards a flawless complexion.

How does advanced electrolysis work?PlusMinus

Advanced electrolysis can be used in several different ways, depending on the skin condition it is being used to treat.

We use a small probe and use a heat current to coagulate the blood within the vessel. Often the results are instant, but sometimes more than one treatment is needed. This is the process used for red veins and cherry spots.

Skin tags appear due to friction and often are for use on the underarms, neck and chest. We use the same process to cut the blood supply to the excess skin.  The skin tag will darken and fall away from the skin without causing trauma to the surrounding area. The same process is done for Seborrheic warts and DPNs. Milia are small hard white bumps under the skin that form from excess minerals. A good skincare programme can help prevent these; however, to remove them we use a small probe and electrical current to melt the mineral.

Alternatives to this treatment would be to lance and extract them, but this causes more unnecessary damage to the skin. Nowadays, Advanced Electrolysis is the preferred method.



Will advanced electrolysis work for my skin condition?PlusMinus

At DestinationSkin we can treat facial red veins, cherry spots, skin tags, seborrhoeic warts, Milia (milk spots) and Dermatosis Papulose Nigra with Advanced Electrolysis. We are able to treat all skin types using advanced electrolysis.

What areas of my body can be treated?PlusMinus

Almost every area of the body can be treated with advanced electrolysis, excluding the areas close to the eye and very intimate areas.

What results can I expect?PlusMinus

For facial red veins, the capillaries may disappear or appear diffused after a few minutes.

The general area will flush red and can last for a couple of hours.

For cherry spots, we recommend one to three treatments, every four weeks.

For skin tags and Milia, you will need one or two treatments. Usually one is enough but sometimes you may need treatment again after four weeks if the skin tag or milia is very large. Often if you have one milia, you will have more, we can spread treatments across appointments to achieve the desired results on all of the affected areas.

Pre-treatment advicePlusMinus

Prior to your treatment ensure sun exposure is kept to a minimum and you advise your clinic if you have had recent sun exposure. Do not use any active skincare products, including retinol, glycolic, salycylic acid products for 1 – 2 weeks prior to the treatment. Do not have any facial treatments or skin peels, for 1 – 2 weeks before treatment.

When planning your appointment ensure you have no events where the area to be treated will be exposed for 1 – 2 weeks after treatment. We recommend that you use aloe vera or witchazel to help heal and hydrate the skin. SPF is also recommended, such as Heliocare, to protect the treated skin from UV rays.

Milia’s are often caused by excess mineral in your skincare regime. The practitioner can advise you on what products can be used to prevent further milia’s from occurring.
