Adult Acne is now affecting 25% of men a recent study showed. At Advanced Laser Light we try to successfully treat, clear and prevent acne by controlling the factors that contribute to acne. With our combination of treatments specifically for acne we can tailor make a program for each individual.
What is the cause of acne?
Acne is caused by an increased production of the hormone androgen, which stimulates the skin to produce more oil, dead skin accumulation, bacteria and inflammation.
What Treatments are there available?
From Our experience, we offer two types of treatments, which can be done singularly or in conjunction with each other for more effective results, depending on the severity of the acne, which will be assessed at consultation stage.
1 Acne Laser Treatment
The heat from the applicator, heats the haemoglobin in the skin, this slows down the production of oil in the sebaceous glands and kills any bacteria in the skin.
2 Dermalogica MediBac Facial
Tailored made to treat each individual area of the face the Dermalogica treatment targets current blemishes and congestion while preventing further breakouts.
How does the Laser Acne treatment work?
The heat from the applicator, heats the haemoglobin in the skin, this slows down the overproduction of oil in the sebaceous glands that leads to acne.
How long does an Acne treatment take?
A full-face treatment takes 20-40 minutes.1-5 treatments may be required leaving the correct time between the treatment, determined after each result.
Does it hurt?
Pain threshold varies from person to person, with clients generally experiencing a hot, sharp pinch for a fraction of a second.
You may notice some general redness in the area following the treatment, which disappears relatively fast. Maintenance treatments can be required should you suffer from future breakouts. Although results vary from person to person, a recent clinical study showed 85% of acne lesions disappeared within a course of treatments.
Should I come for a consultation beforehand?
At Advanced Laser Light a consultation is necessary before any treatment to assess what exactly the clients needs are. In our consultation we will have an in-depth look at the skin as well as looking at aspects of your lifestyle that could be contributing to your skin problem. Having done all this we can recommend a treatment plan that is specific to your needs. If you are suitable for the treatment and time allows, treatment can be carried out the same day.
