Skin Tag: Results from Michelle

Skin tags are soft, skin-coloured growths on the skin. They are very common and are usually small and harmless. They can vary in colour and size, from a few millimetres up to 5cm wide.

Skin tags are usually found on the neck, armpits, around the groin, or under the breasts. They can also grow on the eyelids or under the folds of the buttocks. Whilst they are harmless, they can catch on clothes and objects, making them uncomfortable. Electrolysis is one of the best removal methods for skin tags, making removal of them easy, quick and simple.

This is the result of one of our skin expert Michelle’s treatment of this client, with the image showing directly after treatment. This took just one ACP treatment.

Why hot stone massages are up to ten times more effective than traditional massage…

Hot stone massage utilizes heated volcanic basalt stones to relax muscles deeply, enhance circulation, and improve digestion, offering significant benefits over traditional massages which rely only on manual manipulation. This technique is especially effective in relieving muscle pain, stress, arthritis, improving sleep, boosting immune function, and managing chronic conditions. By also aiding in detoxification and energizing the body, hot stone therapy promises a rejuvenative holistic well-being experience. Engaging in best practices before, during, and after sessions maximizes these benefits.

Why dermaplaning is a threat to your skin barrier and long-term skin health

Dermaplaning, while offering an immediate glow by removing dead skin cells and peach fuzz, also strips away healthy skin layers, compromising the skin's barrier function. This leads to increased sensitivity, dryness, and vulnerability to environmental damage such as UV rays. Long-term effects include heightened risk of sun damage, exacerbation of skin issues like acne, and premature aging. Home dermaplaning poses risks of infection and scarring. It is advised to consider safer, long-term skincare alternatives and, if still chosen, to opt for professional handling to mitigate risks. Prioritising skin health yields lasting benefits over superficial quick fixes.
