Blood spots (vascular blemishes)
Skin tags - usually found around the neck, trunk and armpits

Warts - various types - plane, common, seborrhoeic and verrucas

What is Electrolysis (Electrical Epilation)?
Electrolysis (electrical epilation) and Advanced Electrolysis are methods by which it is possible to:
Remove unwanted hair permanently by a method of gradual destruction, and,
remove unwanted, minor imperfections (see below)
How is this achieved?
A short wave diathermy or blend current is applied via the tip of a small probe which cauterizes the minor imperfection (such as skin tag), without touching the surrounding skin.
Will it hurt?
The treatment is relatively brief and does not require the use of a local anaesthetic (which may give rise to over-treatment of an area if sensation is reduced). However, for very sensitive patients one may be used if necessary.
Can anyone do this treatment?
Tessa has many years experience (having qualified in 1990 after a two-year full time City & Guilds and IHBC course in Electrical Epilation and other treatments) and has perfected techniques for maximum results through clinical experience and Sterex training. The treatment is safe in the hands of a suitably qualified person, ask to see registration, insurance documents and qualifications if you are unsure.
The Clinic has full sterilising and autoclave facilities and uses Sterex sterilised one piece/one use needles.
