Before Facial Hair Removal Treatment:
- You will have to choose carefully the practitioner you are going to have the consultation with. Always look for an accredited professional who has received formal training like the Sterex VTCT Electrolysis Qualification (link to: http://www.sterex.com/training-courses/) or who is a member of a professional association.
- Before the scheduled consultation bear in mind that in order for electrolysis hair removal to be successful the hair has to be a few mm in length so do not pluck the hair in the area that you would like treated. Don’t use any wax or tweezers. If the hair is bothering you and you would like to temporarily get rid of it, then the best recommendation is to cut or if really necessary - shave. This way the hair follicle would not be disturbed, the hair not encouraged to grow and the electrolysis facial hair removal will be possible. Continue reading
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.
Sterex Electrolysis International Limited is a major manufacturing British, Birmingham based company who offer courses on how to achieve skin tag removal using electrolysis. Their courses feature skin blemish removal of 20 different irritating skin lesions including skin tag treatment. Sterex offers regular award winning training Continue reading
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.
The summer season is almost upon us and with warmer weather and lighter clothing comes the concern about hair removal. We start being self-conscious about the hair on our body that could be easily hidden during winter with long sleeves and thick leggings.
However, summer is not only the season when you are happy to be rid of the winter coat and gloves, but also it is when you start planning vacations and especially escaping to a beach paradise. Tanning in the sun and swimming would be even more enjoyable if you did not have to worry about hair removal.
Usually, some of the preferred methods for quick resolution of this concern is using depilatory creams, razors and waxing. However, none of these methods guarantee lasting results and you will have to carry one of these products in your luggage and maybe worry if you will go through airport security with a sharp object or a tube that looks bigger than 100ml of liquid.

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
