WHAT CAN BE TREATED
Red Thread Veins, Skin Tags, Milia and sebacous cysts are just a few of the types of Skin blemishes can be treated with advanced electrolysis using a method of cautery. A topical anaesthetic can be applied to the area to reduce sensitivity.
HOW IS IT TREATED
It’s a relatively simple procedure that often only requires the one treatment. A finely tipped electrical device - Thermolysis (electrocautery / Advanced Electrolysis) is applied to the base of the skin tag, this will cauterise the blood & nerve feed to the tag. It will shrivel, darken in colour & drop off within 3 - 7 days. Larger tags may take longer. However, you must allow for your own healing capabilities.
WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER TREATMENT
The tag will shrivel, darken in colour & drop off within 3 - 7 days. Larger Tags may take longer. However, you must allow for your own healing capabilities. Once tag has dropped off you will be left with a paler/pinker patch of skin where it once was until this skin ages to blend with your skin tone. In some circumstances the tag may need a 2nd treatment - this is unusual.
CAN YOU WEAR MAKE UP FOLLOWING TREATMENT
The treated tag is now a sealed crust. You can apply make up almost immediately as it is not an open wound. However, be cautious not to remove crust prematurely as healing is taking place, removing the crust prematurely may result in scarring.
It is possible to remove tags from delicate eye area & other body sites.
