Moles, warts, skin tags and other so called ‘lumps and bumps’ can be both upsetting to look at and cause social and psychological unease for those whose face is blighted by such growths.
With increases in the occurrence of skin cancers we are well advised to seek professional, medical advice about any growths which appear over night or change dramatically in appearance. Thankfully though, most growths are benign and harmless, and removal is often quick and simple with reassuring cosmetic results.
Advanced Cosmetic Procedures (ACP) is a new name for "Advanced Electrolysis". ACP uses either Short Wave Diathermy or Blend to treat unwanted skin blemishes, such as warts, skin tags, moles and other benign growths, as well as thread veins and vascular conditions with no mark left on the skin.
Laser and light technologies have been developed to treat people with a variety of different skin problems including pigmented (skin colour, birthmark) and vascular (vein) problems.
The use of high frequency microwave energy has become available in the UK for the treatment of thread veins and other skin lesions through thermocoagulation. An example of this is Veinwave or Thermavein.
Plasma Sublimation or Soft Surgery allows the treatments of the signs of ageing and skin complaints, without actually cutting the skin. It can be used for non-surgical eyelid reconstruction (blepharoplasty), removing lines around the mouth, improvement in the appearance scars and treating a number of skin imperfections.
Radiofrequency or radiowave surgery can be used in Dermatology and Cosmetic Medicine for minor surgical procedures such as removing thread veins, warts, growths, birthmarks and moles.
