Red Vein Removal
Thread veins are the small red veins found on the cheeks and around the nose. They can vary in colour between red and purple.
They can be hereditary but many things can cause them, such as, dehydration, too much sunbathing, over exposure to the elements, washing with soap or general neglect of the facial skin.
The permanent removal of thread veins through electrolysis involves placing a very fine needle under the skin and then a small amount of heat is used to cauterise the dilated capillary. This results in the capillary drying up and then disappearing.
This process takes 15 minutes and several treatments maybe necessary, depending on the severity.

Thread veins are often seen on the face, cheeks and nose. They can be caused by excessive exposure to UV rays although some people are simply more susceptible to them and they can even be present from childhood. IPL therapy treats thread veins by emitting wavelengths of light that are filtered to target the haemoglobin in the thread veins or broken capillaries. The treatment causes the vein to break down over a number of days until it has disappeared.
For this treatment, as little as 1-3 sessions are usually needed with a 2-3 week interval.

Skin Tag Removal
A skin tag is a tiny tear drop shaped piece of skin that is typically connected to the underlying skin by a thin stalk. Skin tags look like tiny bits of “hanging” skin and typically occur in sites where clothing rubs against the skin or where there is skin-to-skin friction, such as the underarms, neck, upper chest, and groin.
Skin tags are typically flesh-coloured or may appear brown in light-skinned individuals. They may be smooth or wrinkled and range in size from very tiny (1 mm) to approximately the size of a grape. Very small skin tags may appear as raised bumps on the skin.
If a skin tag is twisted on its blood supply it may turn red or black. Skin tags may bleed if caught on clothing or are otherwise torn. Skin tags are not painful and are not associated with any particular skin conditions or symptoms.
Removal of skin tags is curative, although the individual may develop more skin tags at a later time. Avoid heat treatments and avoid applying creams or lotions for up to 12 hours after treatment.

Milia is a condition that is caused by dead skin cells getting trapped inside pores causing inflammation and a white or yellow head to form which contains a protein called keratin, the head is usually 1mm or 2mm wide and should be removed by trained professional.
They can often accompany dry skin and are often found on the cheek, forehead and around the eye area.
The process of milia removal involves a probe which is used to unroof the milia freeing the hardened entrails. This process should result in minimal or no scarring.
