What is Active Acne

Posted on 09 Sep, 2015

Active 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.

Acne skin disorders for some people can fuel anxiety. Self-esteem and quality of life may also suffer. But there are now effective treatments available to treat active acne using marine fluid acne laser treatment.

We provide the most advanced acne treatment within the London area and all procedures are carried out by our trained staff from our Harley Street Clinic. As a professional and experienced clinic we are able to treat all skin types including Asian and Afro-caribbean skin of ages 16 year’s +

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, and ensure you are comfortable before proceeding with the active acne treatment.

The Laser Treatment Clinic offers industry leading treatment for acne with Marine Fluid treatment. The Marine Fluid treatment consist of  Intense Pulsed Light Laser with Marine Fluid skincare. Y0ur skin will first be prepared with Marine Fluid skincare. In this sophisticated technology the laser is applied to the skin which encourages skin rejuvenation, accelerating the micro-circulation process, which helps to raise the active metabolism of the skin cells. 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, in most cases we have found, with remarkable results.

You will feel pulses of a sharp hot sensation as the laser light is passed over the skin. After the treatment the skin may appear pink, red and/or swollen immediately after the treatment, however this usually reduces over 24 – 48 hours. Inflammation (active redness) is a consequence of fibroblast collagen resulting in more elastic skin. Your treatment will finish with an application of the Marine Fluid skincare. We highly recommend you use Marine Fluid skincare during and after you complete your treatments to achieve and maintain optimum results. The advantage of this treatment is that it works in harmony with the skin, and respects the biological structure of the skin tissue and offers a safe alternative to strong medications associated side-effects and harsh chemical peels or surgical lasers. With repeated treatments you should notice a steady improvement in the skin appearance. The frequency of treatment is usually every 2 to 4 weeks. Marine Fluid acne treatment is usually very effective and we can in most cases achieve a dramatic difference within the first few treatments. We have found that on average most people require between 6 and 12 treatments for the optimum results  however the results are individual in each case as everyone responds differently.
