Advanced Electrolysis is minimally invasive so doesn’t cause any bleeding and only a small amount of discomfort should be expected. The surrounding tissue is left undamaged. Immediately after your treatment the targeted area may appear red and slightly swollen and may feel warm.
A crust may then appear on the surface of the skin and we advise all Advanced Electrolysis patients not to touch the treated area, but let the crusts fall off naturally, which should happen in the next week or so. If there is a sensation of itching this is to be expected and is the body’s healing response.
If you are prone to keloid scarring or inflammatory pigmentation, then this treatment is not advised.
A patient may require a number of sessions, depending on their specific skin condition and how large the treatment area is. We will advise you on what to expect at your initial consultation. Sessions are usually spaced a few weeks apart to allow the previously treated area to heal.
The body will naturally eliminate the skin imperfection and the risk of scarring after Advanced Electrolysis is minimal if the aftercare instructions are followed carefully.
