Introduction to Acne

Acne is a disorder of the hair and oil glands found in the face and upper body. Also known as black heads, whiteheads, spots, pimples or zits. 

Our acne treatments are carried out using carefully selected, proven products. We use specialist products that only doctors can prescribe or administer. We know how to treat your skin and help you acheive the flawless skin you have always wanted. A multi-combination approach is often used in the treatment of acne, but this depends on your skin and your consultation.

 

“Our Acne treatments can be combined with a skin peel for brilliant results and a range of added benefits. To find out more please contact us.”

Our Acne Treatments

Microdermabrasion: this mechanical exfoliation technique helps to remove dead skin cells which prevents the blockage of the pores. This therefore allows sebum to be released and prevents the formation of acne lesions.

Chemical Peels: This is a chemical exfoliation technique which helps to remove dead skin cells. Specific types of chemical peels also have anti-inflammatory properties which can reduce the inflammation and appearance

Prescription Products: following consultation we can provide private prescription for a number of clinically proven treatments

Cosmecueticals: These are skincare ranges which have been proven popular with the treatment of acne. We use Neostrata and Obagi products as they have powerful potent formulations with high quality active ingredients specifically targeted at reducing the appearance and preventing the formation of acneic conditions.

At your Consultation

At your initial consultation, your skin care expert will give you a thorough examination in order to fully understand and assess your skin in order to achieve your desired results. You will be advised on the best possible course of treatments and products designed specifically for your condition or desired results. Our consultations are friendly, informative and completely confidential. Our aim is to ensure your skin received the exact treatment it needs. You will also be advised on the correct after-care regime in order to achieve long lasting results. As everyone’s skin is different, we will ensure that any treatment carried out is fully compatible with your skin and that you are completely comfortable with the advised treatment. Our expert will answer any questions or concerns you may have. We are completely committed to giving you the results you want. The average skin consultation lasts around 30 minutes and you are by no means obliged to purchase a treatment package.

Your Treatment

When you arrive for your first treatments, your practitioner will fully explain the treatment and procedures, detailing any products used in order to ensure you are completely comfortable before proceeding. Depending on the treatment, a small test patch is usually carried out in order to ensure skin compatibility and nothing has changed since your consultation. You are the priority at all times and our experts are there to ensure you are comfortable and receiving the right treatment. With a course of treatments you will gradually begin to see results, although this will be explained after your treatment. There is normally a gap of 2 to 4 weeks between certain treatments which helps achieve optimal results.
