Distinction are one of a few salons in Scotland expert at this technique which can treat and remove a vast array of unsightly skin blemishes. The procedure is quick and efficient and usually causes clients the minimum of discomfort. Conditions we can treat include:

Red Veins
red veins glasgow Advanced Electrolysis use Short Wave Diathermy to reduce smaller red veins on the face. The blood flow is cauterised by a small electrical current. A small scab will form over the area which will take about 5 days to heal. 10 mins - £50
25 mins - £80
Skin Tags
skin tag removal glasgow Skin tags are an unsightly protrusion of the skin which is hormonally triggered and usually appear on areas of friction such as the neck, underarms, etc. They can be removed in one simple session using Advanced Electrolysis. From £39
Milia Milia are tiny white, hard lumps which form on the surface of the skin and are often associated with a drier skin type. They are hardened pockets of sebum (oil) with a layer of dead skin covering them. They do not come out easily and squeezing milia can lead to broken capillaries. Advanced electrolysis can be used to remove these with very little skin trauma. From £39
Syringoma This is a benign white bump, usually found on the upper cheeks and lower eyelids of young adults. Syringomas are completely harmless and are caused by the overgrowth of cells from sweat glands. Advanced electrolysis gently scrapes away these lumps. From £39
Blood Spots
blood spots This blood may show up just beneath the surface of the skin. Blood vessels can burst for many reasons, but it usually happens as a result of an injury. Bleeding into the skin can appear as small dots, called petechiae, or in larger, flat patches, called purpura. Advanced electrolysis involves a fine probe being inserted just under the skin and drying up the area. From £39
moles Moles are small coloured spots on the skin made up of cells called melanocytes, which produce the colour (pigment) in your skin. Most moles are completely harmless. However, they may be unsightly and affect your confidence. Moles can also be a nuisance, for example if they regularly catch on your clothing or you cut them while shaving. With advanced electrolysis, they are removed by applying a heat energy to the surface of the mole, which seals off their blood supply. Sometimes 2 or 3 treatments are required for each mole depending on size. From £39
Sebaceous Hyperplasia
sebaceous hyperplasia Sebaceous hyperplasia is the technical name for a benign bump on the skin that forms over time as a result of damage, leading to an ongoing problem with over-productive oil glands. These damaged oil glands can become enlarged and clogged in a very specific manner, displaying a soft or firm white or yellowish outer rim with a depressed centre. The depressed centre of these bumps is one of the primary ways you can tell you're dealing with sebaceous hyperplasia, and not with something else such as a whitehead (milia). It's not uncommon to have several of these bumps at once, sometimes spaced apart, but they can be clustered, too. Sebaceous hyperplasia is most often seen on the forehead and central part of the face, but can appear anywhere on the body, especially in areas where the skin has more oil glands. They are removed by gently scraping them away with the heat energy of electrolysis. From £39
xanthelasma These yellowish-white pads usually, but not always, appear around and under the eyes in the eye sockets. They are a build-up of fat cells under the skin and can be a sign of high cholesterol so if you have these it's worth getting your blood cholesterol checked. We use advanced electrolysis to gently scrape them away. From £39
wart A wart is typically a small growth that appears on a person's hands or feet or face and looks like a solid blister or a small cauliflower. They may also appear on other parts of the body. Warts have a rough texture and are caused by viruses, particularly one of several kinds of HPV (human papillomavirus). The virus causes keratin, which is a hard protein on the top layer of the skin, to grow too fast. Warts are not the same as moles. Moles are dark and may become quite large while warts are nearly always small and have the same colour as the person's skin. All types of warts are removed by inserting a little probe to the base of the wart (where the blood supply is), and passing heat energy to this area. This seals off the blood supply without which the wart cannot survive. This method of removal is so much more successful than freezing the wart off such as would be done at the doctor, or applying any of the products you can buy to apply to the wart. From £39
