Advanced Cosmetic Procedures & Skin Treatments
Blemish Removal Using Advanced Cosmetic Procedures
Advanced cosmetic procedures is a new adaptation of an existing well established and safety proven treatment, namely electrolysis. Electrolysis in its usual form is best known as a permanent hair removal procedure which works by passing an electrical current into the root of the hair follicle and killing it. However, electrical current can also be used to remove skin blemishes such as skin tags, warts and thread veins. The electrical current passes down a probe and into the skin where it effectively cauterises the blemish enabling it to be removed without surgery.
This treatment has been successfully used for many decades having started in the early 1900’s where electrolysis was often used to treat broken capillaries, warts, spider naevi, port-wine marks and even xanthoma (yellow pigmented spots on the eye lids). So you can imagine how far theses simple treatments have progressed since then. There are unfortunately, many clinics who still charge hundreds of pounds for a single blemish removal, usually because they cannot offer advanced cosmetic procedures which are much quicker and more comfortable than surgery or cryo treatments. Here at The Evolutions Clinic we successfully treat many skin anomalies using advanced cosmetic procedures for a fraction of the costs charged by many clinics. Treatments include the following conditions but please also take a look at our gallery of skin conditions to help you identify your problem.
Thread Veins (Telangiectasia) Treatment
Common on the face and legs as we age, these are either broken or permanently dilated capillaries, which are the smallest blood vessels we have. They have very thin walls which constantly dilate and constrict. As we age, these vessels lose their elasticity and can become permanently dilated. Ageing, pregnancy, smoking, energetic sports, harsh weather and hormones are just a few of the many causes. Advanced cosmetic procedures may be used instead of sclerotherapy in many cases.

Blood Spots (Cherry Angiomas or Hemangiomas) Treatment
These are bright red vascular blemishes which lie just under the surface of the skin. They are dome shaped or slightly raised. They’re commonly found on the torso but can appear anywhere. Most people over the age of 30 have at least one, and they are more common in men. Advanced cosmetic procedures can usually remove these unsightly veins in a single appointment.

Spider Veins (Spider Naevus) Treatment
A spider Naevus is a central dilated blood vessel which has smaller capillaries coming from it, like the legs of spiders. They can be on their own or clumped in groups on the cheeks, legs and other areas. Read more about Spider veins>>
Skin Tags (Verruca Filiforms, fibroepithelial Polyp/Papilloma or Filiform Warts) Treatment
Skin tags are very common and are mainly found on the neck, under the arms and in women they are common under the breasts and the bikini line. They often appear with a neck somewhat like a mushroom and vary in size. They can be smaller than a grain of uncooked rice or larger than a broad bean. They are mainly caused by friction, for example around the neck where necklaces and collars rub the skin. Read more about Skin tags>>
There are various types of wart which all differ in appearance. We are able to treat all warts including common, plane, seborrhoeic (age related), verrucas etc. We have found in our experience that warts on the hands and feet respond better to freezing we we cn also offercan easily and successfully be treated with ACP techniques. Warts can develop either individually or in clusters. Seborrhoeic warts can grow up to two inches across and are sometimes referred to as ‘Senile’ warts, as they are more associated with age.

These are tiny hard white lumps containing keratin which lie just under the surface of the skin. They are easily treated with ACP technology. Their actual cause is unknown, but they’re often found on people with dry or acidic skin. Read more about Milia>>
Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra Treatment
This common disorder develops in adolescent black and Asian skin. They are smooth, dome shaped, brown to black papules. They are mainly found on the face, neck and upper chest areas. Read more about Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra>>
Mole Removal & Treatment
There are many types of mole and we must be very careful identifying the good from the occasional not so good. Moles can be treated by an ACP therapist, but larger moles may need more than one appointment several weeks apart depending on their type and depth. Hairs in moles are usually deep terminal hairs with a good sound blood supply. Repeat treatments using electrolysis is normally required. Read more about Moles>>
Cutaneous Horns Treatment
Composed of compacted keratin they most often occur on sun-exposed areas of the skin. They appear hard cone-shaped – although some are flat – and can be skin coloured to pink/red. They are caused by an overgrowth of the epidermis. A GP referral for professional medical evaluation is required as occasionally they can be a cause for concern. Read more about Cutaneous horns>>
Age Spots or Liver Spots Treatment
These dark areas of pigmentation are associated with ageing and exposure to the harsh radiation of the suns UV rays. They’re most common on the areas that are most often exposed to the sun such as the arms, legs, neck, shoulders, chest and facial area. Read more about age spots>>
Sebaceous Cysts (Steatomas) Treatment
Also know as keratin cyst, epidermal cyst or epidermoid cysts, these are usually small bumps that sometimes affect one’s neck, face, genital area and trunk. The cheese-like, oily substance is due to hair follicles that were once damaged and swelled up, or a skin trauma such as an injury. These are slow growing, painless lumps beneath the skin that become tender and inflamed. Read more about sebaceous cysts >>
Sebaceous Hyperplasia Treatment
A common condition of sebaceous glands in adults. Lesions may be single or multiple and appear yellowish, soft small raised lumps on the face. They can resemble small craters with a pore in the middle. They are most common on the whole facial area, in particular the forehead and upper cheeks.
These can be described as yellow flat plaques found on the upper or lower eyelids, most often near the inner part of the eye. The spots are deposits of cholesterol which are soft and painless and don’t interfere with vision. They are more common in women and men over forty and are sometimes a sign of raised cholesterol levels. Read more about Xanthelasma>>
Related to Xanthelasma, these are fatty deposits of material which lie under the skin surface. They can be very small or grow up to over 3 inches in diameter. They can appear anywhere on the body but are found more commonly on the elbows, knees, hands, feet and buttocks Read more about Xanthoma>>
