Advanced Aesthetic Procedures
(Blemish removal)

What are advanced aesthetic procedures?

 

At Bonds Aesthetics we use two main treatments to remove unwanted lesions.

These are CryoPen and Shortwave diathermy.

The CryoPen is an effective treatment against a variety of different lesions ranging from 1mm to 10mm.  These can include skin tags, seborrheic keratosis, warts and many more.   It allows for pinpoint accuracy, even around the eye area treating just the lesion and not the healthy surrounding tissue. 

The CryoPen is a comfortable and quick treatment which requires no down time

Short wave diathermy is a fast and effective treatment for Spider veins, blood spots, hyperplasia, seborrheic keratosis, skin tags, milia and many more.

Short wave diathermy emits an energy into the skin burning the cells.
