Acne

 

DESCRIPTION

 

Dermalaser Medical Skin, Laser and Acne Clinic is the only clinic in Somerset West which has the Acleara Acne Clearing System. Our aesthetician is trained by our Dermatologists to help assess and treat acne with this system.

 

We understand how acne can affect your psychological well-being. The earlier the acne treatments commence, the less chance of it progressing and causing scarring, which no-one in this day and age should suffer.

Acne vulgaris is the medical name for acne and often begins in the teens but it is not uncommon in adults. There are many symptoms of acne in the various stages of acne:

Comedonal acne: Early stage of acne where the skin becomes oily and sticky causing blocked pores and multiple blackheads and whiteheads.

Papulopustular acne: Next stage of acne if not treated early. Red papules and yellow pustules and inflammation can be seen on the skin at this stage.

Nodulocystic acne: Advanced stage of acne if not treated in earlier stages with deeper red papules, nodules and cysts.

All acne is hormonal but genetics or hereditary predisposition may affect the severity of your acne. Testosterone over-stimulates the sebaceous glands causing the skin to become oilier. Excess oil causes the top layer of the skin to become stickier, which results in blocked pores and breakouts.

INDICATIONS

  • Mild, moderate acne

  • Adjunctive treatments for severe acne

  • Acne Scarring

 

TREATMENTS 

ACLEARA ACNE CLEARING SYSTEM

A breakthrough acne treatment that combines gentle vacuum therapy with pulses of specially-filtered light to help clear your pores and treat acne outbreaks and it helps to control acne-causing bacteria on the skin. This treatment can be used with or without conventional acne therapy such as antibiotics, oral contraceptives, and Isotretinoin, as well as a topical therapy. It is also a popular treatment when pregnant or breast-feeding when you cannot use medication.

ACNE PEEL

Lamelle Professional Beta Plus Peel

Salicylic acid is a lipid-soluble beta-hydroxy acid that is derived from the bark of a willow tree. The Beta Plus treatment, we’ve formulated it specifically to be effective at removing comedones (black and whiteheads) and congestion. It’s also extremely anti-inflammatory and calms aggressive inflammatory reactions in inflammatory acne.

DERMALUX LED LIGHT THERAPY

Our blemish-fighting Dermalux LED Blue Light (415nm) is clinically proven and medically certified to treat acne for both the face and body. Used to improve blemish-prone skin, prevent breakouts, balances oil production and improves skin clarity. 

DERMAPEN4 MEDICAL MICRO-NEEDLING (ACNE SCARRING)

Acne scars are made of fibrous tissue caused by skin damage. Dermapen4 creates tiny micro-punctures on the skin which the body treats as small wounds. It increases the production of collagen. The collagen breaks down the fibrous tissue and replaces it with regular tissue leaving your skin revitalized, smoother and blemish-free.
