We’re pleased to announce that 171 Hair and Beauty Salon in the heart of Islington, London now offers a wide range of Advanced Cosmetic Procedures (ACP) to help remove unsightly skin blemishes that may have affected your confidence and well being.

Here’s a rundown of our Advanced Cosmetic Procedures (ACP) treatments: 

These are tiny white hard lumps containing keratin which lie superficially under the surface of the skin and can be easily treated with ACP techniques. Their exact cause is unknown although they are often associated with dry skin which can be acidic. Advanced Cosmetic Procedure.

Facial Thread Veins
These are not broken capillaries but rather permanently dilated capillaries. They have very thin walls which constantly dilate and constrict. As we age these vessels lose elasticity and become permanently dilated but can be treated with Advanced Cosmetic Procedure.

Blood Spots
These are bright red vascular blemishes which lie just under the surface of the skin. They are dome shaped or slightly raised and are frequently found on the midriff, back or front. Most people aged over 30 have at least one and they are more common in men and women. Advanced Cosmetic Procedure.

Spider Naevus
A Spider Naevus is a central dilated blood vessel with smaller capillaries radiating from it like the legs of a spider. They can be found in isolation or gathered together in clumps on areas such as the cheeks. This can be treated with Advanced Cosmetic Procedure.

Skin Tags
Skin Tags are very common and most frequently found on the neck and face. They often appear with a neck like mushroom and vary in size from a tiny speck, smaller than a grain of uncooked rice to the size of a larger pea or even larger. They are often found in areas of friction such as the underarm, groin, under the breasts or around the neck where necklaces may irritate.
