Initially I was apprehensive and embarrassed however Vicki soon put me at ease. Talked me through the treatment and pain, a possible time frame was discussed and the openness and enthusiasm she showed was extremely encouraging. In combination with the lovely Linda, they both are a delight, a pleasure to see and chat to and I always look forward to coming. To top it all the electrolysis has been very successful.They are just lovely and I shall miss them when I no longer need to visit. They are absolute professionals.

In the UK, most people think that electrolysis is only used for hair-removal. However, a wide range of skin related problems can be treated using advanced techniques of electrolysis - known as Advanced Electrolysis (ACP) (or Advanced Cosmetic Procedures - ACP).
All of our Therapists who perform Advanced Electrolysis (ACP) have attended specialist, professional training courses and are fully accredited to treat the following conditions: Thread Veins, Red Veins, Broken Capillaries, Spider Naevi, Blood Spots (Campbell de Morgan spots), Skin Tags , Warts , Verucca, Milia and Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra.
Using a magnifying lamp, a minute, sterile needle is introduced either alongside or into the area to be treated. When in position, a tiny energy current is discharged precisely at the relevant point to have the maximum effect. It is a safe, comfortable and effective treatment, which is becoming increasingly popular for treating skin problems in both women and men.
The time taken to treat any of these conditions will depend on the size, number and nature of the problem. In addition, the clients' personal expectations can also alter how much is performed at any one session. It is important that the area treated is not 'overworked', therefore treatments are spaced out at regular intervals. The Absolute Aesthetics therapists will discuss these issues at the initial consultation and will keep the client informed regarding the progress with ongoing consultations at the start of the treatments.
These are conditions that are most commonly found on the face (particularly around the nose) and legs. They can be caused by many factors, including ageing, pregnancy, harsh weather and smoking. The needle is put on to the vein (not in) and then an electrical current is released. The current will cauterize the vein, killing the vessel wall and causing the blood to coagulate, come to the surface and then disappear.
Spider Naevus is a central, dilated blood vessel with capillaries radiating away from the centre (thought to be caused by squeezing in some cases). They are very often found in isolation or grouped together in areas such as on the cheeks.
Blood spots are bright red, vascular blemishes which develop on the body (very often on the trunk or torso) and develop naturally as the skin ages and cell renewal slows down. They are properly known as Campbell de Morgan spots.
Both of these conditions are treated in the same way as veins and capillaries (as outlined above).
Skin tags are very common and normally found around the bust, neck or areas of friction such as the underarm. They are harmless but can be both unsightly and irritating.
There are various types of warts, including common, plain, seborrhoeic (more common with age) and verucca, which can develop individually or in groups. All types of warts are benign and can be treated successfully.
Milia are very small, white, hard keratin-filled cysts which lie superficially under the surface of the skins, commonly around the eye area. Read more about Milia at our wesite dedicated to Milia - www.milia.co.uk
Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra is a very common disorder which develops, during adolescence on black skin, causing round shaped, black pauples on the cheeks neck and chest.
All of these conditions are benign and treated by gently inserting the needle into the area and then releasing the electrical current which kills it from the inside, allowing it to dry up and fall off.
