Acne

Effectively clears acne and reduces severity of future break-outs for clearer, healthier-looking skin

Free skin consultation

Why wait any longer?

Are you a teenager or adult who suffers from acne, including regular breakouts and scarring? Have you tried oral and topical treatments with limited success?

Although acne is a common complaint, we recognise that how it makes you feel is unique to you, especially as it may be damaging your self-confidence or even your happiness. Laser technology means that we are now able to treat acne by going straight to the source of bacterial porphyrins beneath your skin.

Laser acne treatments can help clear acne lesions and reduce the severity of future break-outs, and are particularly effective when used in conjunction with other treatments. This procedure doesn’t require any downtime, which means you can return to work or school immediately after your appointment.

The results tend to be dramatic and long-lasting, giving you a smoother, clearer complexion and restoring that all-important self-confidence in how you look.

  • Smoother, clearer complexion
  • No downtime
  • Free of the prolonged dryness, several redness and mental depression often associated with oral and topic treatments
  • Reduce and improve the appearance of acne scars

How does it work?

We use a handheld device to pass a laser beam over the acne-affected areas of your skin. This laser purifies your pores, tackling the bacteria that cause acne, as well as promoting the growth of new healthy skin cells and collagen to drastically reduce the appearance of acne scars and reduce the severity of future outbreaks.

What happens during the treatment?

During the procedure, we will give you protective eye shields to wear. A numbing gel is then applied to the areas to be treated. Using a handheld device for correct positioning, the laser is delivered in short bursts to protect your skin. Many people say this treatment is painless but you may feel a slight pinprick sensation, similar to having a hair plucked.

The treatment takes approximately 30-60 minutes.

When will I see results?

With laser acne treatment, the results are cumulative. You might see improvements after the first treatment and the number of lesions and severity of breakouts should certainly reduce over a month’s course of treatment.

Some patients continue to see improvement for a further two months after their last treatment, especially if they are also using traditional oral and topical acne products.

How often can I have it done?

We would usually recommend a course of two treatments per week for four weeks. However, we will carefully analyse your skin and discuss this with you, suggesting a different treatment schedule if we think that would be best for your individual case.

What can I expect immediately after treatment?

Immediately following your treatment, you may experience some redness and slight swelling; this will usually dissipate within one to three days. You can apply make-up to the treated area immediately if you feel this is necessary.

It is extremely important that you apply a moisturiser and SPF15-30 sunscreen every day. We also advise you to avoid sun exposure on a daily basis to prevent sun damage.
