Acne

Acne is a very common chronic inflammatory skin condition that normally occurs in teenagers and young adults, and results in oily skin and the development of blackheads, whiteheads and pus-filled spots on the face, back and chest.

CAUSES OF ACNE & ACNE SCARRING

  • Hormonal changes or imbalance
  • Excess sebum production
  • Family history of Acne
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome

Acne is believed to occur when the sebaceous glands of the skin produce too much oil (sebum) which, along with dead skin cells, blocks the pores in the skin resulting in blackheads or whiteheads. Pus-filled spots can then occur when particular strains of a bacterium normally found on the skin called Propionibacterium acnes become enriched in the oily environment triggering inflammation.

Treatments for Acne

Acne Facial

Our Acne Cleanse Facial includes a number of techniques and technologies such as Exfoliation, Chemical Peeling and LED Light Therapy. This treatment is gentle on the skin yet effective in reducing Acne.
We recommend a course of 6 sessions, once a week.

What is involved in the Acne Facial

CLEANSE - we begin with a cleanse or double cleanse to remove makeup, oil, dirt and any residue.

EXFOLIATION we then gently exfoliation using our specially developed AHA Smoothing Cream rather than a physical exfoliation to prevent irritation or discomfort.

CHEMICAL PEEL the skin is then prepped and the Chemical Peel is applied.

SERUM a specialist serum is then applied to soothe and hydrate the skin.

LED Light Therapy we use a mix of RED, BLUE, GREEN and WHITE Light for Product Absorption, Anti- Inflammation, Anti- Bacterial, Accelerate Healing, and Drainage. FACE MASSAGE then facial is finished by massing in the correct Face Cream and SPF (Sun Protection) Cream.

Dermapen Microneedling

Dermapen can help with mild Acne and is great for Acne Scarring.
However we cannot go over Live Acne with the Dermapen due to risk of spreading bacteria.
