ADVANCED COSMETIC PROCEDURES COURSE (ACP)

Course Objectives

Blemish Removal is done using a technique known as of Advanced Cosmetic Procedures (ACP or Advanced Electrolysis). Electrolysis was first invented in 1875 for its use on an in-growing eyelash by a Dr Charles Michel (an ophthalmologist from Missouri USA), electrolysis is achieved by applying a tiny probe (size of any eyelash) which directs a small current, which then removes/treats and cauterises the blemish.

As Advanced Cosmetic Procedures (ACP) uses electrolysis for cauterisation, this makes it suitable for removal or treatment of a wide diversity of skin lesions and blemishes, which can be done quickly, easily, some immediately or a others in a few sessions without cutting, stitching or leaving any marks or scars.

The practitioner must also be able to distinguish blemishes and other non-treatable skin abnormalities such as chloasma (butterfly mask of pregnancy – disappears post pregnancy), vertigo (no pigmentation at all – white patch/area) or ephilides (freckles).
