What is blemish removal and what are the benefits?
Do you have imperfections on your skin that you would like to get rid of? If you have skin tags, spider naevi, broken capillaries, blood spots, milia and seborrhoea keratosis, our treatments are just what you’ve been looking for! People are often willing to simply tolerate bothersome skin blemishes, unaware that there are short, affordable treatments available to rectify these issues. Non-surgical blemish removal is a safe and effective method of removing a variety of skin blemishes. Short wave diathermy current is utilised to remove and/or treat these skin flaws and imperfections. A very fine needle probe is used to pass the heat from the electrical current into the tissue. The needle used is very fine, and the treatment is localised to ensure a minimum of pain and discomfort during the procedure.
What does the treatment involve?
The length of the treatment depends upon the blemish to be treated and its severity. There is likely to be mild sensitivity in the area treated for a few days following the treatment. Some redness and mild swelling may also be evident. Scarring is minimal and, in many cases, there is none at all. Comprehensive after-care instructions will be discussed with you in order to minimise and manage any of these after-effects. Your practitioner will carry out a thorough consultation prior to proceeding and any potential contra-indications can be discussed at this point.
