Acne is caused by the body’s increased production of the hormone androgen, which stimulates the sebaceous glands to produce more oil. The increased production of oil causes the pores to become blocked, so that the oil cannot come up to the skin surface. The acne itself is an infection caused by skin bacteria that feed on and break down this oil.
As the bacteria multiply, waste products and sebacic acid are created, and the sebaceous gland becomes inflamed – causing what is known as a blackhead, a whitehead or a pimple that occur on the face, neck, chest, shoulders, back. Untreated cases of acne leads to formation of visible scar on the surface of the skin.
Until recently, clients with persistent, moderate acne have been treated with only topical or sometimes systemic antibiotics. Recent studies have demonstrated, however, that certain discrete spectra can trigger endogenic porphyrins that naturally destroy P. acnes bacteria — and in just a fraction of the time it typically takes for antibiotics to work.
Our Acne treatments offer you a package of highly effective topical home care products, salicylic peels, to tackle excess oil production. This is combined with a course of microdermabrasion treatments or laser therapy. We offer effective treatment for acne scar like micro-needling. The procedure stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and creating smoother, brighter, healthier, younger-looking skin.
Using a precision engineered hand held device, 192 micro-needles are quickly rolled over the skin to part the pores on the top layers with minimal trauma to the skin, this action encourages the skin to naturally regenerate and repair itself. New collagen is formed, new skin cells are generated and blood supply is enhanced. Visible results will appear after around 6 weeks and provide long lasting natural results.
This treatment is fantastic for all skin types and offers real results for troublesome acne scars, open pores, premature ageing and pigmentation. A single session will promote a youthful radiance and smooth out skin texture, however, a course of 3 or 5 sessions offers a significant improvement to deeper lines and prominent scarring.
Most cases of acne respond well to our six-week treatment regime. Your skin specialist will discuss the effects of your treatment with you.
Within a few weeks, you will start to see real and exciting results. As your acne fades, your new skin will look smoother and clearer.
