What can be removed with Advanced Cosmetic Procedures [ACP]?

What are they and what causes them?
These are all vascular [blood] blemishes. Red veins appear as small red lines, blood spots are round, red lumps, while spider veins have a central red spot with red lines leading out from them like the legs of a spider.
They can all be hereditary or are sometimes caused by damage to the skin such as squeezing a spot or an injury. Blood spots sometimes appear after a general anaesthetic. Red veins can be caused by exposure to harsh conditions such as wind and sun or smoking, washing with hot and cold water, poor skin care, pregnancy, certain medicines and many other causes.

How are they removed?
They are removed with electrolysis using a very fine probe placed just under the skin’s surface and passing through a tiny amount of galvanic energy combined with a little heat to seal off the tiny capillary. This results in the capillary drying up and disappearing. The procedure is not painful at all but may be a little uncomfortable like a tiny nip or sting – a bit like tweezing a hair out.

"I decided to get some red vein treatment done using advanced electrolysis. I had broken capillaries on my nose and cheeks and I felt very self conscious about them. The procedure itself was very straightforward. I had 4 treatments done ad notice a he difference. I was extremely pleased with the results and have recommended it to lots of other people."  Nicole, Glasgow
