Hairs from moles (and moles themselves) can be treated by those trained in ACP techniques. Once treatment has started the mole may reduce in size and colour. Hairs in moles are generally deep terminal hairs with a very rich blood supply. Repeated treatments, as with electrical epilation are required. Moles respond extremally well to electrolysis and treatment is very effecive visibly reducing the size and often lightening the colour of the mole.
Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra
This a common popular 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.
Although these are classifies as part of the wart family, they are not contagious and very common on the head, face and body. Associated with increasing age, mature skins, sun damage, they often have genetic links. Growing up to 2 inches across they are often dry, crusty and considered cosmetically unattractive.

Skin Tag Removal
Skin Tags are very common and most frequently found on the neck and face. They often appear with a neck 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. They are often found in areas of friction such as the underarm, groin, under the breasts or around the neck where necklaces may irritate.
Spider Naevus Removal
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.
Yellowish deposit of fat underneath the skin, usually on or around the eyelids. While they are neither harmful nor painful, these minor growths may be disfiguring and can be easily removed.
Thread Veins Removal
These are permanently dilated capillaries. They have very thin walls which constantly dilate and constrict. As we age, these vessels loose their elasticity and can become permanently dilated.There are numerous causes including: aging, sun damage, hereditary, pregnancy, trauma e.g rubbing of spectacles and smoking. Energetic sports, temperature extremes, harsh weather exposure, hormones and skin fragility are also common causes.
Blood Spots Removal
Bright red, superficial vascular blemishes these are often dome shaped or slightly raised. Most people aged over 30 have at least one and they are more common in men than women.

Your questions answered:
What actually happens in advanced cosmetic procedures?
The tip of the finest, smallest probe possible (about the size of an eyelash) is introduced along the line of the capillary and a tiny energy current 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 problem. In the case of skin tags the current destroys the vessels ‘feeding ‘the blemish ‘starving’ it of nourishment resulting in its eventual demise.
Will my blemishes return?
The treated blemish will not return but others may occur depending on the root cause. Your skin specialist will advise you during consultation.
