Blemish removal


Advanced Cosmetic Procedure ( Blemish removal using diathermy)


A safe and effective treatment that involves the successful removal, and visible reduction of many unwanted skin blemishes or lesions using electrical current. It is commonly referred to as advanced electrolysis, thermolysis, or short-wave diathermy.

These include:

  • Telangiectasias (broken capilarries) (*no varicose veins)

  • Skin tags

  • Spider naevi (spider veins)

  • Cherry Angioma (cherry spot, blood spot)

  • Seborrheic Keratosis

  • Milia


Short wave diathermy is also known as electro-coagulation or high frequency. The current is conducted into the skin through a very fine needle, which produces heat that coagulates and destroys targeted tissue.



How long is the treatment?

The length of the procedure depends on the blemish you wish to remove and that is discussed during the initial consultation.


How many treatments will I need?

Treatment is safe and effective. The number of treatments will also depend on the blemish and how many there are to be treated. The skin must not be over-treated so you may need more than one treatment to achieve desired results. This will also be discussed and agreed upon during the consultation.


Will my blemishes return?

The blemish that is treated should not return. You may find blemishes appearing in other places but that depends on the root cause of the problem.


Does it hurt?

You will feel a slight heat sensation and a small amount of discomfort during the treatment.


How will the area look after the procedure?

Immediately after the treatment, the treated area may appear slightly red and swollen, it may also feel a bit warm.

It is extremely important to follow aftercare instructions to ensure that the treated area heals properly and to avoid risk of infection and scarring. Crusts may appear on the treated area, these seal the skin and prevent infection. DO NOT RUB OR PICK these during the healing process.

*For the first 7 days after treatment please avoid:
- hot baths
- sauna and steam rooms
- swimming pools
- getting treated area wet
- excessive sweating (eg. Gym, excessive exercise, running )
- any products or creams other than provided after the treatment
- applying make up in the treated area
- facial treatments

- scrubbing or rubbing the treated area with flannels, sponges or towels (take great care when drying face )

DO NOT pick any scabs, allow them to fall off naturally to avoid scarring.
