Acne Treatment ProgramsAcne is a widespread skin condition and its various forms can affect people of almost all ages. Treatment options vary depending on age, sex, severity, skin type, other medical conditions and any other current medication.

It is best to make a medical appointment for assessment. Treatment options will depend on the individual but can include topical skin treatments, nutritional supplements, antibiotics and /or hormone management. We also perform a number of in clinic treatments to reduce acne and acne scarring.

Clinic Treatments for Acne

  • Microdermabrasion – is a skin surface treatment and its primary action is exfoliation of dead skin cells and suction. It helps the clearance of acne prone skin by clearing pore congestion and helps improve the skin’s appearance by minimising pores and clearing blackheads. By removing the dead skin cells, topical products used in the treatment of acne can be easily penetrated in the skin, allowing maximum effects and results.
  • IPL Skin Rejuvenation – This light treatment will kill harmful bacteria causing acne. It also decreases redness and inflammation in the skin and reduces oil flow and pore size.
  • LED Blue Light Therapy – This no-invasive treatment kills the bacteria that causes acne and decreases sebum production.
  • Jessner Peel – The Jessner Peel is a mild to moderate form of peeling for skin rejuvenation. Its strength can be increased by layering the applications. This is dependent on the patient’s skin type, skin condition, and desired outcome. One of the main ingredients of Jessner is salicylic acid which removes congested sebum and dead skin cells. The Jessner Peel is recommended for skin that suffers from blackheads, acne, congestion, sun damage and pigmentation.
