‘Advanced Cosmetic Procedures’ or ACP is a new adaptation electrolysis which in its usual form, is best known as a permanent hair removal procedure. It works by passing an electrical current into the root of the hair follicle and killing it. This same principle can effectively be used for skin blemish removal. Skin tags, milia and blood spots, as well as a host of other blemishes, can be removed using this method. The electrical current passes down a probe and into the skin where it cauterises the blemish enabling it to be removed without surgery.
This treatment has a long history and established safety record for skin blemish removal. ACP has been successfully used for many decades. Electrolysis has a long history and was used as far back as 1875 to treat broken capillaries, warts, spider naevi, port-wine marks and even xanthoma (yellow pigmented spots on the eyelids).
We can treat many skin blemishes that are not treatable on the NHS because they are considered cosmetic. Treatment is completely non-surgical, quick and relatively painless. For many skin lesions and blemishes, only one visit is necessary though we may ask you to come back for a review to check the final result.
