Advanced electrolysis (cosmetic) treatments have traditionally been available from experienced BIAE members to remove a variety of cosmetic skin blemishes/imperfections quickly and expertly. Unlike electrolysis permanent hair removal, these treatments generally require only one appointment and take advantage of the very precise needle control required by electrolysis. (Some skin imperfections may require more than one treatment). Only those who have undertaken specialist advanced training are able to perform these treatments.
All those trained in advanced electrolysis will be able to remove skin tags, milia, thread veins (Telangiectasia) and blood spots (Campbell de Morgan spots).
Those with a higher level of advanced training such as the BIAE Advanced Electrolysis qualification may also be able to remove age spots, warts and verrucae, Sebaceous Hyperplasia, Syringoma, Seborrhoeic Warts, Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra, Xanthelasma and perform cosmetic mole removal (technically moles are not removed by electrolysis, the overgrown tissue is treated and ‘shrunk’ down). Permission from your GP may be required for some of these treatments, please check with your electrolysist.
Skin Tags: Commonly found on the neck, underarm and groin area
Blood Spots: Also called Campbell De Morgan spots or Cherry Angioma
