Anne Michelle is very fastidious in her work. She takes great pains to ensure her clients are fully informed and feel relaxed. An initial consultation takes around 30-40 minutes, during which she will talk to the client about the problem area/s they want treated, discuss the background to the issue and any family history, ascertain what treatment they may have sought already, explain the process and how the equipment works and advise them of what to expect after the treatment.
After cleansing the skin tag area and sprayed on anaesthetic for comfort. The base of the skin-tag is treated with the Electrolysis probe. It is a warm prickling sensation. Anne Michelle dabs on some aloe vera then a spray bandage to keep the area clean and protected. The skin can be warm and red for 30-40mins. Your given a pocket sized after-care card. 7-10days the tag will have shrivelled and dropped away.
Initially, we’ll numb the wart. Treat the wart like its a tree with roots that spread out under it. Finishing with a cooling aloe vera and spray bandage to keep it dry for the next few days. The wart will go white. Then dark. Then drop away in 10 days to 2 weeks. Gone.
Electrolysis works by passing a low-level electrical energy pulse through a tiny needle into the hair follicles on the skin’s surface. There are diﬀerent forms of electrolysis – Anne Michelle uses thermolysis and galvanic electrolysis. The former method heats moisture in the hair follicle to the point where it electively quarterizes the follicle, while the later alters the chemical structure of the moisture in the follicle, creating a caustic solution that destroys the hair germ cells around the follicle.
The process is completely safe and relatively pain free. If you’ve ever had IPL laser treatment, you will know it can be very painful – particularly in more sensitive areas of the body! But because electrolysis is so targeted and uses such a low current, discomfort is minimal. Anne Michelle has also found that by employing both thermolysis and galvanic methods, she achieves a far more eﬀective result, with the greatest comfort level for her clients.
