Skin Biopsy

At The Physio Studio, Specialist Physiotherapist Michaela Smith is now able to offer Advanced Electrolysis assessment & treatments. 

This treatment is for skin surface lesions and although it does not sit under the scope of  'physiotherapy', it draws upon her existing needling skills, builds a different skill set and sees her work in a new therapeutic role.

 Advanced Electrolysis is thermolysis treatment using a sterile, disposable heated needle to remove or reduce common skin lesions.


We can offer the removal or reduction of:

  • Moles, (pigmented and non-pigmented)

  • Warts, (common, plane and filiform)

  • Blood spots

  • Skin tags

  • Seborrhoeic keratosis, a type of mole) 

  • Milia, (cysts like permanent whiteheads)

  • Sebaceous hyperplasia, (overgrown sebaceous gland)

  • Syringoma, (benign tumour of the sweat gland)

  • Telangiectasia (thread veins)

Michaela is certified by the BIAE (The British Institute & Association of Electrolysis) which is the only professional organisation to personally check the skills of all listed members through additional practical and written assessments, and require members to undertake annual Continuous Professional Development to update skills and knowledge.

For any questions about the techniques used in Electrolysis, please click the link to the BIAE website FAQ's page:

Your first consultation with Michaela would be an initial 30 minute assessment involving:

  • Examination of the skin lesion to decide what the lesion is and if it is safe & appropriate to remove.

  • Explanation of the procedure and expectation of results

  • Completion of the health form

  • Cautions and contraindications

  • Clear explanation of 'Do’s and Don’t's' before and after treatment

  • Discussion of use of topical local anaesthetic preparation for if treatment is undertaken at next consultation (the client has to purchase this themselves from a pharmacy and apply it before coming for treatment)

  • Aftercare advice -this allows the patient to prepare for, and time their treatments

  • Treatment plan, (ie whether it would require one 30 minute session, one 60 minute session or more than one).
