Rediscover clear skin through our range of acne and acne scarring treatments
Acne is one of the most heart-breaking and hard-to-control skin conditions. It can make life truly miserable. It’s not just the physical, painful blemishes that sufferers must endure, but also the possibility of permanent scarring, pitting and pigmentation problems.
When we think of acne, we usually assume it only affects teenagers, where hormone changes result in the over-production of oil from the sebaceous glands. While it does blight this age group, it can also occur in later life. Adult acne – and the marks it leaves behind – is common among people in their 20s, 30s and 40s, appearing on the face, chest, back and shoulders. This can also be caused by hormone imbalances, but also by poor skin care regimes – such as using the wrong kind of moisturiser for your skin type. Removing hair from your face incorrectly can cause infected ingrown hairs that do not help with acne, this is why more and more people are having laser hair removal on their face and body.
There are two different types of acne: non-inflammatory, which is occasional (and manageable) black and white heads, and inflammatory – red, swollen, sore spots. It is typically the latter which causes so much anxiety and can scar.
Changes offers many acne treatments, ranging from medical skin care & skin peels, which can reduce scarring and hyper pigmentation (dark spots) that the condition has caused, to acne scar laser treatment, which can minimise, remove or even correct imperfections.
Alternatively, we offer dermal rolling, a treatment which improves the texture of scarred skin and dermal fillers, which can ‘plump out’ pitted skin.
To determine which treatment is right for you, book a consultation with one of our practitioners. They will examine your skin and be able to advise you on the best course of action for managing acne and/or reducing its effects. We can also advise on a skin care programme to keep you looking lovely.
