This high-tech treatment can offer incredible results and a permanent reduction in hair growth. An electronic current is applied into each hair follicle, with a very fine needle-shaped electrode or metal probe, to destroy the hair at the root. Multiple sessions are required to catch all of the hairs at the critical growth period.
Skin Tags 15 mins £30
Skin tag removal by electrolysis is a basic procedure that offers dramatic results. It is a highly effective way to get rid of skin tags on your face and body. Since these protrusions of the skin’s surface can appear on any part of the body; it is best to have them removed for a better appearance. Removal will also rid you of the irritation they cause, as they are likely to break open and tear, causing pain and bleeding. Through electrolysis you can experience freedom from skin tags. They are easily and conveniently removable; the procedure is fast and permanent.
Milia 15 mins £30
Electrolysis is one of the most effective treatments available for permanent milia removal. The procedure is not painful and feels like pin pricks .Simply, we use a fine probe to send a current into the milia. This current breaks down the fatty tissue (or keratin buildup) so that it can be reabsorbed into the skin.
While treated milia will not return, new spots can still form. So, even after treatments, it is important to use preventative measures to ensure that your milia does not make a reappearance.
Blood Spots £30
These are bright red vascular blemishes which lie just under the surface of the skin. They are dome shaped or slightly raised and are most common on the trunk or torso and particularly the midriff back or front. Most people aged over 30 have at least one and they are even more common in men than women.
The Danné Alkaline Wash system is a remarkable treatment designed to reduce fine, downy hair. This type of hair is very difficult to removes the hair growth is usually dense and would take a long time to treat with electrolysis and is also not suitable to be treated with IPL or Laser. The advantage of Alkaline Wash is that you can remove large areas of hair in one treatment with no discomfort as with other hair-removal systems. It also works well when combined with electrolysis and laser, which are suitable for the stronger hairs.
After the first treatment, the hair will grow back at its normal rate, but as treatments progress the regrowth rate will become slower, usually resulting in a permanent loss over a period of time.
The treatment takes approximately half an hour and a patch test is carried out on the area to be treated, which ensures that your skin is suitable for the Alkaline Wash treatment. The treatment is completely pain-free however in some cases the area can appear red and warm which is normal and will subside in a short period of time.
All areas of the face and body may be treated as long as the hair is fine and downy. The treatments will be approximately 2 weeks apart to start with and then go onto a month apart and then longer periods of time as the hair starts to reduce in growth.
A full consultation and patch test will be carried out at least 24 hours before treatment. You must inform your therapist if you become pregnant or if you take any medication or vitamins in-between treatments.We also use HAIR V GO as alternative which we have found to be much more gentle.
VPL(tm) technology is a revolutionary new technique, pioneered by Energist, for hair removal and all aspects of skin rejuvenation. Using short pulses of light energy, which can be varied in number, length and frequency, the VPL(tm) systems emit light across a range of wavelengths, allowing a greater range of more gentle treatments to be performed on virtually all hair and skin types.
The safe and effective VPL(tm) technology helps to remove and improve the effects that age, hormonal activity and over-exposure to the sun can have on the skin. Using short, safe, controlled pulses of filtered light to help remove unwanted hair and skin perfections, and to improve texture and tone, VPL(tm) leaves skin clearer and smoother.
Treating a wide range of conditions from unwanted hair, to active acne, thread veins, fine lines and wrinkles, age and sun spots and rosacea, VPL(tm) technology is the way forward for beauty salons and clinics.

VPL/IPL Hair Removal
The latest in Variable Pulsed Light technology for permanent hair reduction! Rid of unwanted & irritating hair quickly, safely & effectively using this clinically proven system that is specifically designed with variable setting to treat different hair types anywhere on the face & body.
VPL™ uses short, safe, controlled pulses of filtered light to remove unwanted hair quickly and effectively. Carefully filtered pulses of light are absorbed by melanin, the pigment found in hair. This absorption process produces heat, which heats the hair, damaging the follicle along with its ability to regenerate. Hundreds of hair follicles are treated with each pulse, making VPL™ a fast and effective way to treat unwanted hair.
Over a period of treatments the damage caused by the red light can inhibit growth completely.
The Energist VPL treatment has been clinically proven to remove hair from all parts of the face and body.This treatment is perfect for men and women.

AHA Peel & Vitamin C Treatment £30 Per Treatment £150 Course of 6
Prior to any IPL/VPL skin rejuvenation treatment it is highly recommendedto prepare the skin with an AHA Prrl & Vitamin C treatment. This removes the horny layer of skin enabling the treatment to go deeper into the epidermis therefore making the treatment more effective.
VPL/IPL ACNE Treatment £75
Acne is caused by excess sebum, an oil naturally produced by the body which clogs up pores and causes irration. Over long periods this can also result in acne scarring.
Energist VPL improves both active acne and scarring by destroying the bacteria that causes the irration. Acne is healed significantly following a course of treatment and skin texture and tone is improved as the Energist VPL initiates further collagen production.
Light energy stimulates the fibroblast cells in the skin which are responsible for the production of collagen. New collagen naturally migrates outwards of the skins surface resulting in fine lines & wrinkles being soothed, a reduction in pore size & gives overall smother skin texture. The collagen stimulating effects also make this and effective treatment to rid of acne scarring & due to the antibacterial producing effect of the yellow head that is used, this treatment is excellent for the treatment of acne management.
VPL/IPL Sun Damage/Pigmentation/Age Spots £75
Conditions which usually appear in later years. These are all caused by an excess amount of melanin, the pigment which determines our hair and skin colour.
Melanin absorbs the light energy from Energist VPL and heats up quickly whilst the surrounding skin remains cool. The heat means that the particles of melanin break up into smaller particles, that are then removed by the body's natural waste processes, leaving the skin clear and smooth.
Collagen Booster/Anti-Ageing £130
Collagen is the substance in our bodies that keeps our skin looking youthful and smooth. As we age, our bodies naturally produce less and less collagen, resulting in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
The light from Energist VPL stimulates cells in the body called fibroblasts to produce more collagen. The new collagen moves outwards to the skin's surface resulting in a smoother texture, smaller pore size and reduced fine lines and wrinkles.
Conditions where small veins become visible on the skins surface.
Light energy is absorbed by the blood vessels that make up these imperfections. This absorption process breaks down the vessel walls. Effective Energist VPL treatments allow the body to recognise these broken vessels as waste and removes them naturally.
