Acne Solutions That Really Work
Acne is one of the world’s most common skin conditions, and can cause emotional and physical discomfort for men, women, and teenagers. We see many forms of acne and we strive to help each and every patient we see suffering with this condition. We have many tools available to us in the clinic such as dietary advice, skincare, TheraClear, laser, PDT, peels and doctors on site to arrange prescriptions when necessary. We even offer a service using our laser to zap away large, sore, red pimples- they start to dry out and fade within a few days.
Most of us know what it feels like to suffer from breakout and pimples. It can reduce someone’s confidence and affect their quality of life. We have various methods to treat acne, and they all start with a thorough skin consultation. We get to understand your medical history, lifestyle, family history of acne and any other factors that may contribute to your breakout. Once we have an idea about where your skin is at, we will recommend a regime of products to help bring the skin back to a state of balance. We will also talk to you about dietary factors that can positively or negatively impact your skin.
We then devise a treatment plan to bring your acne under control. We will customise your program depending on the type and severity of acne. Many of our patients begin a course of TheraClear treatments and see great improvements. The combination of IPL light and suction is able to reduce pimples and blackheads. Other patients may try our laser. We use a combination of Nd:YAG laser for pimples, and Er:YAG laser for blackheads and comedones (blackheads). Usually a course of treatments is required. We also have a unique service to spot treat active pimples. We use our Nd:YAG laser to actively target large pimples. The treatment takes a matter of minutes, and starts to clear away blemishes over night.
Other patients will benefit from a mixture of different treatments, including light microdermabrasion and skin peels between TheraClear or laser sessions. Because acne is a multi-factorial skin disorder, we see great improvements when we combine treatments together. We aim to find the right balance for your skin in terms of reducing oil flow, maintaining hydration, exfoliating away excess dead skin cells that cause blockages in the skin and balancing the skin so that you can maintain it at home.
We achieve great success in treating and managing acne. Schedule a consultation with us today to see how we can help you.
