Acne vulgaris- commonly known as acne or pimples, can also mean papules, pustules, comedones, nodules or cysts. While it most commonly affects teenagers, it can appear or last in people well into their 20's, 30's and 40s. Acne can be caused by stress or hormonal imbalance resulting in either an excess or underproduction of oil in the skin at any age.
Alas, many treatment options are available, starting with a comprehensive consultation to discuss the best course of action through various treatment options and prescription of medications where required.
Treat active acne with a combination of light-based treatments and peels in 6-8 sessions, between 2-4 weeks apart.
This will inhibit fresh acne, tighten open pores, repair skin and kill underlying bacteria.
Aim- skin will appear smoother, clearer and more toned
Treat deep scars with serums to boost collagen formation within the deep scars and resurfacing laser therapy.
Advise mild skincare to support treatments aimed to balance your skin and minimise the chances of overstimulation of oil glands.
Medical peels are a popular treatment for acne prone skin and can help reduce the appearance of acne scars, control breakouts, and reduce inflammation. Peels work by using a chemical solution such as glycolic acid or salicylic acid to remove the outermost layers of dead skin cells. This helps to reveal brighter, smoother skin.
Micro-needling using niacinamide and EGF (epidermal growth factor) is an effective skin treatment for treating acne-prone skin. It works by stimulating the production of collagen, elastin, and other beneficial molecules in the skin to improve its overall tone and texture while reducing the appearance of acne scarring.
Enlighten 3 non-ablative resurfacing is an effective treatment for reducing the appearance of acne scarring. The procedure works by using pulsed light technology to penetrate the skin's surface and target areas that are affected by scars. This encourages collagen production and skin rejuvenation, making the appearance of the scars more even and less noticeable.
