Acne Treatment

Acne skin disorders for some people can fuel anxiety, depression and other emotional and psychological problems. Self-esteem and quality of life may also suffer. But there are now effective treatments available to treat acne.

Acne is caused by the enlargement and obstruction of sebaceous glands by bacteria in the skin. These multiply deep in the hair follicle and produce inflamed pus-filled spots and cysts, which can appear on the face, chest, back, limbs and virtually any other parts of the body. Acne should be treated as soon as possible as acne is more likely to go on to a scar if it is left untreated. Our cutting edge Laser treatment is an extremely popular choice for those who want clear healthy looking skin again with permanent results.

The Consultation – what to expect

Our Skin Experts are friendly and sympathetic and will provide helpful detailed information on the laser treatment during your Consultation and answer any questions you may have and recommend a course of treatments to your individual requirements and advise you on the after care. If you wish to go ahead with the treatment, she will book you in for the skin Test Patch which can usually be carried out immediately after your consultation. Our laser treatment for acne have been approved by our Medical Expert. Whatever your personal requirements may be, we can provide the leading experts, techniques, products and facilities for your treatment.

The Treatment – what to expect

When you come to see us for your first treatment, the Laser Practitioner will fully explain the procedure to you, ensure you are comfortable and provide you with goggles to protect your eyes. Cooling gel will be applied to the treated area to soothe the skin before the pulses of light are applied with the sapphire crystal. There may be a little stinging or tingling felt during the treatment, which most people find bearable. The time the treatment takes depends on the area being treated. The treatment is fast. The results are accumulative and you may start seeing results after just a couple of treatments. The frequency of treatment is usually every 4 weeks.

The Laser Treatment Clinic uses FDA approved advanced LTC Intense Pulsed Light system. In this sophisticated technology a sapphire crystal wavelength emits broad-spectrum light, which is applied to the surface of the skin. The energy travels harmlessly through the epidermis and dermis until it strikes the bacteria. Laser treatments target the porphyrins produced as part of the normal metabolism of acne bacteria, and rapidly destroys the bacteria without damaging the surrounding tissue on interaction. This destroys the acne bacteria in just a fraction of the time it typically takes for antibiotics to work, with extraordinary results. This treatment is generally three times faster than common antibiotics and topical treatments.

The skin may appear pink, red and/or swollen immediately afterward the treatment, however this should reduce over 24 hours. We recommend you have tan free (real or fake) healthy skin on the area you wish to have treatment and protect your skin by using sunscreen with an SPF of 40 or higher.

Our acne treatment is typically very effective and usually achieve a dramatic difference within the first few treatments, but multiple treatments are typically required for best results.
