How are skin blemishes removed using Advanced Epilation?
All aspects of the treatment are undertaken using an electrolysis machine and fine needles. Depending on what skin lesion is being treated the procedure itself can differ slightly, but the concept is the same for all. For thread veins and spider veins, a very fine epilation needle is introduced into the skin. The needle receives a small electrical current that heats the needle allowing the vessels to be cauterized. For all other skin blemishes, the flat side of the needle is used to cauterize the area and remove by lifting off.
