Skin tags are a common skin condition resembling a soft small piece of hanging skin. Derived from skin cells and composed of loose fibrous tissue they can present as either single or multiple. Their often hyper-pigmented colour makes them more obvious and although they are harmless they can be irritating and cosmetically unattractive and because of that skin tag removal is a much sought after treatment. They appear the shape of a lollipop or mushroom and vary in size - from a tiny speck, smaller than a grain of uncooked rice, to the size of a large pea, or larger.
They are found on perfectly healthy people and are not directly associated with any other major medical conditions although heredity also has its part to play. The cause remains unproven with ongoing discussions whether they originate from the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) continuing. Some people are more susceptible to skin tags, they are most common in older people, overweight people, can appear in pregnancy and individuals with diabetes.
They become particularly irritating when they develop in sensitive areas. Normally they appear anywhere on the body but are most frequently found on the neck where friction from necklaces, collars and scarves are to blame or under the arms where friction from arms rubbing and seams from clothes are the initiating factor. However they often appear in very sensitive areas such as under the breasts or near the groin, the genitalia and around the eye, even presenting between eyelashes and thus affecting vision.

Whatever we call them…sun spots, liver spots, brown spots, cafe au lait spots, hyper-pigmentation, lentigines or age spots, they are considered cosmetically unattractive. Age spot… the very name is indicative of getting older and less attractive. These unattractive mottled marks that often spoil our complexion are not just down to age however and are usually the payback for years of sun-drenched vacations and SPF-less sunbathing. UV exposure encourages dark-pigment-producing melanocyte cells into overdrive, and the melanin they make clusters into dark spots thus giving the mottled appearance that is so disliked by all genders.
Usually age spots are pretty harmless, appearing as flat, brown discolouration patches on the skin most often on the back of the hands, neck and face of people above the age of 40. They are not contagious and not usually serious or dangerous. However more skin cancer cases are being recognised year on year and basal cell carcinomas, squamous cell carcinomas and malignant melanomas are on the increase. It is not uncommon for actinic keratosis or other skin cancers to develop in areas where age spots are apparent and any suspect age spot could be a solar keratosis or a more serious skin cancer and it is wise to have them checked by a doctor if any are irregular, increase in size or change in colour, texture, itch or bleed.
Hair removal methods vary greatly and each of them require a different level of expertise or practice to perform. There are a number of at-home solutions such as depilation, razors and wax strips that are relatively easy to use but require the individual to follow instructions and may involve some practice. However, these methods do not guarantee permanent hair removal and recent trends show that more people are now looking to eradicate unwanted hairs for good.
Clients visit salons and clinics seeking professional advice regarding permanent hair removal. Electrolysis is the only method of permanent hair removal and can help them to eliminate hair from various parts of the body, most common of which are predominantly the face but also the legs, arms and underarms.

How to get rid of Milia is a question that many people ponder over if they are sufferers of these irritating small, hard, round white nodules slightly raised above skin level. They are called Milia plural or Milium singular and most people will experience at least one in their lifetime. Many people experience extensive milia as an ongoing condition and others experience them as an occasional minor skin complaint which occasionally seems to appear. Whichever category one comes under with so many of the population suffering them how to get rid of Milia is a common question.
They lie very superficially under the surface of the skin and are tiny white lipid-epithelium plugs – a keratin filled small cyst which is usually seen around the eyes, including the eyelid and between the eyelashes, nose and upper cheeks. Continue reading
Facial hair is a dual topic in the world of hair removal. Facial hair can be seen as a sign of adornment and men that choose to have facial hair in the form of a beard, moustache or both can shape, trim, shave into the form they are most comfortable with and this can include permanent hair removal from some areas. Conversely, in some societies facial hair can be considered offensive or a mark of a person that is lax with their grooming. In both these cases, facial hair removal is very sought after and more people of both genders are visiting salons and clinics seeking permanent hair removal. Electrolysis is still the only procedure to legally offer permanent hair removal.
Facial hair is a concern for many people for all walks of life and all genders including men for purposes of grooming, the trans community and women of all ages for many different reasons are always looking to remove facial (as well s body hair) that is deemed to be Continue reading
Advanced electrolysis successfully treats many skin imperfections including Telangiectasia, (thread veins) Campbell de Morgans (Cherry Spots), Spider Naevi, Skin Tags and Milia to name just a few of the 20+ blemishes that can be effectively and successfully treated with electrolysis.
In 1875 the very first treatment using electrolysis was recorded in the medical publication ‘The Lancet’ for the treatment of trichiasis (in-growing and distortions of the eyelashes). Since then, further developments have established its position as a successful and popular treatment for the permanent hair removal. Advanced electrolysis techniques were then developed for the treatment of minor skin conditions and imperfections such as thread vein removal.

Both warts and skin tags are minor blemishes that appear on the skin and both conditions can be effectively treated using electrolysis. Electrolysis is a quick, easy, safe and effective way of treating many skin conditions and has a proven record with warts and skin tag removal. Strictly speaking it is thermolysis or short wave diathermy which is used for their treatment. This is Radio Frequency which is also used for electrolysis permanent hair removal. Using electrolysis or thermolysis/short wave diathermy for treatment of warts and tags cauterises them from the skin which then heals very quickly leaving no mark on the skin.
There are many different types of wart:
1. Planter Warts which are usually called Verrucas and are contagious
2. Plane warts which are small viral warts
3. Filiform warts which are contagious and have finger like projections that stick up from the skin Continue reading
There are various types of warts that appear in different areas of the human body, for example: plane, filiform, raised, genital, seborrhoeic warts and verrucas. Most verrucas appear as small irritations on the foot and seem dry and crusty. They can present anywhere on and around the foot including the base, the toes and even between the toes. They vary in size considerably with some presenting as small 1 or 2 mm and others being multiple covering sometimes even up to half the foot. They can be itchy and irritating and are often very sore and painful. For some sufferers it can even prove difficult to walk. Verrucas are in addition considered ugly and carry a stigma for many women in particular. It is for these very reasons that they are unwanted and people will go to many lengths to get rid of them.
There are many wart removal methods intended for verrucas removal, some of which are old wives tales and some which are dangerous and some which, even though purchased in goodwill through chemists and chain stores, are ineffective at curing the problem. Duck tape, mastic tape, banana skin application, various verruca and wart removal treatments such as cryogenic treatment, laser wart removal Continue reading
Warts are probably the most loathed and unwanted common skin condition that the general public can catch. Wart treatment is very commonly sought after although successful wart removal treatment is not easy to achieve.
Warts are small lumps that often develop on the skin of the hands face, body and feet and vary quite considerably in appearance. Most are contagious but the seborrhoeic wart, (a very common brown crusty wart which appears predominantly on the trunk and face), is not contagious and is caused by a combination of hereditary reasons, sun damage and ageing. All warts are very effectively treated with electrolysis as a wart treatment although there are many other wart removal remedies with Continue reading
