Advanced Cosmetic Procedures
At SkeenDeep, we offer non-surgical procedures also known as advanced electrolysis, electro-desiccation, or thermolysis.
These procedures are increasingly popular as a wide variety of skin blemishes can be successfully treated without the use of a 'knife' offering quick, immediate and effective results and leaving blemish free, smooth skin.
To perform these treatments we deliver an alternating current to the target area of skin through a very thin probe or needle. The electrical current is conveyed into the skin lesion, cauterising the blemish and enabling it to be removed without surgery.
Conditions treated through advanced cosmetic procedures include:
- Age Spots and Pigmentation Marks
- Common Warts (Verrucas)
- Seborrhoeic Keratosis or Senile Warts
- Spider Naevus and Thread Veins
Age Spots and Pigmentation Marks:
Also known as solar lentigo or liver spots . These are light brown to dark brown pigmented ﬂat patches. They commonly occur on the face, scalp, hands, neck and chest. With age, they can increase in size and number.
Moles are very common with an average young adult having up to 25 moles. There are several types of moles some of which may be cancerous. Your mole will be assessed by the doctor and treated/advised accordingly.
(Also known as Verrucas)
Warts are caused by a virus called Human Papilloma Virus. They appear as rough lumps on the skin which can be skin coloured or slightly pigmented. They can be painful especially if on soles of the feet.
(also known as Senile Warts)
These are light brown to almost black cauliﬂower looking lesions which can appear on the head, neck and trunk of the body. They are a often a natural side effect of ageing or can be caused by sun damage and hereditary issues. They are harmless but can be removed for cosmetic reasons.
Spider Naevus and Thread Veins:
Both Spider Naevi and Thread Veins are closely related and caused by small dilated blood vessels under the surface of the skin.This gives the appearance of a red face. Spider naevi normally have a central red spot from which thread veins radiate like a spider's web.
Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra:
A common harmless disorder more common in darker skin. Dermatosis Papulos Nigra may be hereditary and can increase with age.
Areas commonly affected: cheeks, neck and upper chest.
A fleshy benign skin coloured growth. These growths occur in common in areas of friction such as the underarm, neck, groin but they may appear anywhere, e.g eyelids, face etc.
Tiny Keratin Filled Cysts:
These cysts are commonly found on the face, especially on eyes.
Yellow, ﬂat plaques usually found on the eyelids. The exact cause is unknown although it is thought to be associated with high cholesterol levels.
Small round, domed shaped, translucent papillose. Syringoma are benign and commonly appear under the eye.
(also known as Campbell De Morgans or Blood Spots)
Cherry Angiomas or blood spots are shiny, bright red blemishes which can vary from the size of a pin head to a 50 pence piece. They
can appear ﬂat, raised or dome shaped.
Cherry Angiomas are common on the trunk of the body especially over the age of 30. They are also more common in men than women.
This is skin infection caused by a virus called pox virus usually affecting children but can infect adults as well. They are small white or pink umbilicated papules which can be anywhere on the skin. They usually resolve themselves spontaneously but it may take up to 2 years. Treatment prevents spread, itching and secondary infection.
A pronounced and circular papule or nodule arising from a swollen hair follicle or a sweat gland. These can become inﬂamed and/or infected. The size can range from a pea size to a small clenched ﬁst. Advanced electrolysis can be used to treat a manageable sized cyst.
This is a common non-contagious, skin condition due to enlargement of sebaceous glands. They are usually skin coloured and soft in appearance and are often found on the face.
