What is involved in Sterex ACP?

During your consultation our experienced Medical Aesthetician will assess your suitability for treatment. They will advise the number of treatments and duration between treatments. Prior to treatment of some conditions it is necessary to have the all-clear from a Dermatologist. A test patch is not always necessary prior to treatment.

If topical anaesthetic is necessary you will be asked to attend 45 minutes prior to your appointment to have this applied.

During treatment the tip of a fine small probe (about the size of an eyelash) is used to discharge a tiny electrical current. This destroys the lesion or blemish which often disappears as it is being treated.

For some conditions only one treatment is necessary, however further treatments may be necessary depending on the severity of the problem.
