About Acne

Acne can be a real spot of bother for people of all ages, and at some points in our lives we will all suffer from an outbreak. There are many myths about the causes of acne, most surround diet and hygiene, however neither are accurate, as acne is the skins natural reaction to a hormonal imbalance.

Acne is caused by the body’s increased production of the hormone androgen (a male hormone that is present in both men and women), which stimulates the sebaceous gland to produce more oil. The increased production of oil causes pores to become blocked and preventing the oil from coming up to the skins surface. The blocked pore causes bacteria to feed on and break down the oil, producing spots on the skin’s surface.  

Treating Acne With Pulsed Laser Technology

Our acne treatment gets straight to the root of the problem. This unique treatment uses specifically selected wavelengths and optimised pulse duration and shape. The light is absorbed by haemoglobin, the red pigment in the blood, which then heats the area producing a minor reaction to the sebaceous glands. This in turn slows down the overall production of oil that leads to acne, thus dramatically reducing the chance of spots and minimising the appearance of pores in general. 

A Fast and Non-Invasive Procedure

The best results are achieved on inflammatory acne, best known as the sore, raised, red pimples. The procedure is non-invasive since the applicator only lightly touches the skin’s surface, making it relatively painless. Tolerance of pain is very individual but it has been described by many as the warm feeling one has after a day on the beach.

Including consultation and preparation you should expect to spend 20 minutes in the clinic, making this fast and effective. A typical course of therapy will include four treatments, three weeks apart.
