Acne & Congested Skin
Managing the symptoms of Acne & Congested Skin often requires more than one type of treatment over a period of time. The types of treatment offered aim to address the various factors that cause acne. This includes:
- Moderate chemical peeling – to unblock and decongest
- Topical homecare of Retinoids – to subdue sebaceous glands
- Laser or light therapy (laser genesis) to destroy bacteria and reduce inflammation
- All the above also promote wound healing to reduce scars and blemishes
What will it do for me?
Waking up every morning to find yet another spot has appeared can be very demoralising and can knock a dent in your self confidence.
Managing and reducing the breakouts will put you back in control and restore a smoother clearer skin.
Clarifying Acne Treatment: A special mixture consisting of a unique blend of deep penetrating Alpha and Beta Hydroxy acids, Retiniol and antiseptic ingredients, this detoxifying epidermal treatment cuts through excess oil to decongest pores and clarify oily blemish prone skin.
One treatment will result in improvement and can be repeated as necessary every few weeks.
LIGHT/LASER Therapy : Various types of therapeutic light sources can have a beneficial effect on reducing bacteria deep in the sebaceous glands and help improve scars and inflammation.
This type of light therapy delivers low energy, is very comfortable and does not require ‘downtime’ afterwards. You can have this alongside a Purity treatment.
HOMECARE: Skincare that contain ingredient blends specially formulated to reduce breakouts and best manage and minimise breakouts when they do occur. The potent formulas produced by Cosmedix and Image skincare brands can effectively keep you in control of your skin on a daily basis.
Acne is a symptom caused by hormone imbalance where the male hormones are activating the sebaceous glands. Some people find out what the triggers are for their breakouts, often stress, but for a lot of people it is unexplained.
Treatments on offer here can result in significant improvements, but does not eliminate the root cause.
Other solutions such as Contraceptive pill and Medical treatment such as Roaccutane are options to consider, but require a consultation with a medical professional.
