Acne Treatment; covering other skin treatments such as spots, acne scars, acne, oily skin, oily T-zone and more.
Acne is a chronic inflammatory skin condition that affects nearly everybody at some point during their life. It is a common problem affecting men and women of all ages and can be embarrassing, inconvenient or unsightly for some. Acne can occur anywhere on the body but mainly affects the face, neck, chest and back.
Acne is a result of inflammation and or infection of the sebaceous glands of hair follicles. These glands lie under the surface of the skin and are attached to hair follicles which open to tiny pores on the skin’s surface. The sebaceous glands produce oil (sebum) and are responsible for keeping the skin and hair soft and supple. When the pores become blocked, comedones (whiteheads/blackheads) are seen and if sebum clogs up the pores, spots result and are seen as pimples or pustules. The blocked pore may become infected with the otherwise harmless skin bacteria, C. Acnes. This may initiate an immune response leading to inflammation and redness in the surrounding area. The end result being larger spots that are pus-filled which may go on to develop into nodules and cysts.
Conventional Treatments for acne include:
- Topical creams such as Benzoyl peroxide, Azelaic acid, Salicylic acid.
- Hormonal control e.g. the Contraceptive Pill

Acne Scarring Treatments
|The dermaroller is an innovative hand held piece of equipment designed to rejuvenate the skin and is becoming increasingly popular in anti-ageing treatments. It is a hand held roller with sterile needles embedded around it. The dermaroller is passed across the area to be treated causing controlled micro-punctures in the skin. The controlled trauma is enough to stimulate the wound healing process and for the skin to remodel itself generating collagen and elastin. As the skin regenerates and repairs itself, new cells are formed with enhanced blood supply leaving a softer, smoother skin with lasting results. Find out more…|
