The Rise of Advanced Electrolysis: Fast, Effective and Affordable Removal of Moles, Red Veins, Skin Tags and Blemishes

Many people suffer needlessly from warts, skin tags, moles, red veins, milia and other skin imperfections, unaware that these can be removed quickly and cost effectively by ‘Advanced Electrolysis’ aka Advanced Cosmetic Procedures.

In fear of incurring high private dermatology costs, pain and scarring, those suffering from unsightly blemishes and bumps often make do with cover-up cosmetics or skincare products that offer only limited results. Many people are unaware that for just a few seconds of mild discomfort – no anesthetic required – a raft of unwanted bumps and blemishes can be immediately, safely and permanently removed.. This often has life-changing results.

Advanced Electrolysis works by sending a tiny current through the tip of an eyelash-sized probe onto the blemish. Red veins and skin tags will disappear immediately, whilst moles and warts whose blood supply has been cut off, tend to fall off in time. Treatment times and costs vary, but customers are often pleasantly surprised at how quick and affordable the process can be.

Perhaps due to a long-standing association with hair removal, many people, including some doctors, are unaware of the diverse types of blemishes that can be addressed by Advanced Electrolysis. As you would expect, the treatment has come a long way since it was first introduced as a method of hair removal over 100 years ago. Today, highly advanced equipment, rigorous industry standards, specialist professional training and international knowledge-sharing have dramatically expanded the capabilities of electrolysis around the world.

To ensure a safe, reliable and professional Electrolysis and Advanced Electrolysis service for the British public, the BIAE (British Institute and Association of Electrolysis) demands exceptionally high standards of its member practitioners, each of whom must pass rigorous practical and theoretical assessments. In Scotland, around 20 electrolysists are registered members of the BIAE, ten of whom are employed at About Face in Glasgow. About Face also offers Scotland’s only specialist ‘Advanced Electrolysis’ service.

Recently, Electrolysis and Advanced Electrolysis have been overshadowed in the press by IPL/laser treatment, promoted as the newest form of hair reduction and skin rejuvenation. With Electrolysis being the only permanent form of hair removal available on the market today, and Advanced Electrolysis offering much more extensive and dramatic skincare treatment, any misconception that IPL is a replacement for Electrolysis will be short-lived. The important message for customers is that individual consultation is needed before any course of action (whether Electrolysis, Advanced Electrolysis, IPL or a combination) is decided upon.
