A Holistic Approach to Acne Treatment
Don’t Let Acne Get You Down – It Can Be Treated
Most people experience acne in varying degrees at some point in their life. There are a number of factors that contribute to the development of acne, the most common are genetic, hormonal, environmental and dietary factors. Not all acne is the same and not all skin is the same, so there is no one treatment that will work for everyone.

We have a holistic approach to the treatment of acne that includes looking at diet, skin care regimen and treatment. We look at the whole person and are especially conscious of the psychological effect acne has on young lives. Our treatment plans feature the very latest in scientific technology including: Dermasound facial treatments, microdermabrasion, IPL light therapy, copper bromide laser treatment, medication and dietary advice.
Acne typically affects areas of skin where there is an over-production of sebum (oil). Pustules and papules develop as a result of blockages in follicles caused by sebum and dead skin cells. This is often compounded by bacterium, which leads to inflammation and can result in scarring.
Acne is often erroneously addressed with over-washing and incorrect topical applications that irritate the skin. The relationship we have with our skin is something we all have to work at, but through constant care and good habits over the long term, beautiful clear skin can be more than just a dream.
There are three components to clearing acne:
• the treatment performed by your consultant,
• the prescription of skin care given to you, and
• compliance with your home skin care routine and dietary advice, which is given by your skin care consultant.
Laser and other light-based therapies are often used to treat acne and acne scarring. Light therapy targets the bacteria that cause acne inflammation whilst also improving skin texture and lessening the appearance of acne scarring. Similarly, laser treatment works by damaging the sebaceous glands, lessening the amount of oil they produce. Certain cosmetic procedures including chemical peels and microdermabrasion are considered effective acne management when used in combination with other treatments.
