Extractions and Removals
We offer a range of techniques to help extract or remove unwanted concerns from the skin. The concerns below can look very different, so if you have a skin concern and are unsure if it falls into any of these categories, please book in for a free consultation and one of our highly trained Therapists will access your concern.
Extractions and Removals
Here are Body TLC we are able to offer a range of tools to help remove unwanted skin concerns. We can utilize Lasers, Diathermy, Plasma, or extraction techniques.
Skin concerns that we can help with include, but are not limited to:
"I have had two verruca’s removed now at Body TLC. The first one was rather large and due to its position on the ball of my foot extremely painful, which is what drove me to find a removal method, the second was smaller and on my toe.
I found the process manageable both times. When the verruca itself was touched by the needle, I felt no sensation at all, I occasionally felt some pain if the needle touched healthy skin or flesh, but this was minimal. The therapist was very careful and checked in with me throughout the treatment.
Overall I would recommend this treatment for verruca’s as they can be cleared up very quickly and with little pain."
The Diathermy uses Radio Frequency channeled through a extra fine gold needle to separate the concern from the skin, cauterizing as it goes. In some instances a small scab may form. It is vital that any scab is not picked at, as this causes scarring. You may be left with slight redness immediately following treatment, but this will disappear fairly quickly.
Skin concerns which are normally removed using Diathermy include:
Diathermy Thread Vein Removal
With facial thread veins, we have found that Diathermy offers a better option. For some people, Laser treatment is not suitable; The face has very fine skin for which Diathermy is better suited. As with other removals, Diathermy uses Radio Frequency channeled through an extra fine gold needle, this needle is inserted into the vein and a short zap is given. This coagulates the blood in the vein and cauterizes it, so that the blood flow is pushed back to the deeper skin and a larger vein. This then leaves the visible thread vein to die and the top layer of the skin to heal.
There are a great deal of differing forms of acne, and of course differing stages, backgrounds, and medications prescribed by GPs and chemists. As such it is impossible to say without a consultation which, if any, method may be viable for yourself.
Consultations are free and there is nothing to fear with our friendly team, we truly have seen it all before, and our advice is always free without any nasty catches, so even if it is not possible to offer you treatment at the moment, we may still be able to offer you useful advice to help you manage or improve your condition.
Plasma is best known for its skin tightening abilities.
We offer treatments such as eyelid tightening and wrinkle reduction with Plasma here at Body TLC.
However, we can also utilize the power of plasma to help us remove unwanted lesions on the skin. Plasma is an element, the sun is basically an enormous ball of plasma! When the appliance is in close range of the lesion, a small electrical arc is extended (similar to a solar flare but in a teeny tiny scale). This arc makes contact to the skin lesions and evaporates the tissue in small, controllable doses.
This allows us to carefully remove benign growths or unwanted pigmentation, birthmarks, and beauty spots with ease. The result is fast and with only minimal discomfort.
Clients can be left with a small scab over the area of skin where the lesion once stood. You must follow the aftercare and importantly not pick the area, most clients fully heal within 7 days.
