What is Electrolysis?
Electrolysis can be used for hair removal as well as the removal of small red facial veins, skin tags and white heads. Electolysis works by applying a minute current just underneath the skin surface along the affected area. The skin is blanched and the discolouration fades, the blood being reabsorbed by the body. The area may feel a little hot a few minutes later. Minute, honey-coloured crusts may form on the skin surface. These are often invisible, except on very close inspection. They fall off in about 5/7 days (face) and may leave a pink patch of skin which fades.
