At Safiya’s Retreat, we can care for and support you in a practical sense by removing any unsightly skin blemishes that may have affected your confidence and well-being recently or throughout your life.


ACP uses electrolysis, which is suitable for a wide diversity of skin blemishes that can be quickly and easily treated with immediate and effective results offering an eventual blemish free smooth skin.


As far back as the early 1900’s electrolysis was being used for the treatment of port-wine marks, broken capillaries, spider naevi, warts and xanthoma – yellow pigmented spots or plates found on the eyelids.

Facial thread veins

These are not broken capillaries but rather permanently dilated capillaries.

They have very thin walls which constantly dilate and constrict.

As we age, these vessels lose their elasticity and can become permanently dilated.

There are numerous causes including: ageing, hereditary, pregnancy, the rubbing of spectacles, smoking, energetic sports, temperature extremes and harsh weather exposure, hormones and skin fragility. They are commonly seen in a maturing ‘English Rose’ complexion.

These are bright red vascular blemishes which lie just under the surface of the skin.

Skin Tags are very common and most frequently found on the neck and face. They often appear with a neck like a mushroom and vary in size from a tiny speck, smaller than a grain of uncooked rice, to the size of a large pea or even larger. They are often found in areas of friction such as the underarm, under the breasts or around the neck where necklaces may irritate.

Moles

Our Specialist can significantly reduce and more than often remove moles. Hairs from moles can also be treated.
The size and appearance of unsightly moles can be visibly reduced and improved using Advanced Electrolysis techniques. However, for the patients safety, it is essential to ensure that the mole is a perfectly normal healthy mole before treatment can commence.
Healthy moles are often pigmented growths or small blemishes on the skin that commonly appear in the first few decades of life in almost everyone. The average young adult has about 25 moles. Unusual or atypical moles can signify an increased risk of melanoma although malignant melanomas can arise from both existing moles or from healthy skin.
The ABCDE rule helps recognise suspicious moles.
A — Asymmetry,
B — Blurred Borders (irregular, or jagged edge)
C – Colour variation
D – Diameter larger than 5mm (1/4 inch),
E — Elevation (especially when uneven)
E – Evolution (changes over time).
Referral to a GP may be necessary prior to treatment.

Hair in Moles (per 15 mins)£85

Moles as well as the hairs emanating from the mole are all treatable. A GP’s letter stating that it is OK for us to go ahead with the treatment without any chance of a malignant transformation may be required. Usually the moles reduce in size after each treatment. The hairs from moles are very vascular and will need repeated treatment.
