Acne vulgaris often referred to as acne is a common skin disease that affects most people at some point in their life. Acne does not just affect teens but can continue on into adulthood and can have a deep psychological effect on sufferers resulting in low self esteem and depression.
The scarring varies according to severity but isn’t always something easily disguised with make up due to the uneven skin surface that results. Acne occurs when sebaceous glands produce excessive amounts of sebum (naturally produced oil) which can then block pores /follicles within the skin. Blackheads and whiteheads may then form.
These can then become infected by bacteria causing inflammation and spots to develop. The areas most affected are the face, back and chest.

Skin Peels are a popular way of achieving a more youthful look without the need of invasive surgery. This works by removing the old, dead and dying skin cells and stimulating the growth of new cells for a healthier looking skin. Commonly used as a treatment for acne, hyperpigmentation, fine wrinkles and lines and sun damage these can improve skin appearance dramatically. Non toxic chemicals are used to remove the surface layer and promote cell renewal and collagen production. Remember the neck, decollete area and hands would also benefit from this form of treatment as they show signs of aging ahead of other parts as the skin is thinner there.
Microdermabrasion is basically exfoliation of the skin using microcrystals aiding in removal of dead skin cells, unclogging of pores and an increased circulation to the top layer of skin therefore increasing its oxygenation, improving its eliminatory function, ability to heal itself and reduction in the appearance of flaws. Products are provided for home use to assist in controlling the secretion of oil and thus fight against acne outbreaks. A 6 week treatment is normally advised.
Within a matter of weeks clients generally see a significant difference with scars fading and skin looking far healthier and this helps them to regain some of their lost confidence. Prices vary according to treatment but are affordable and worth every penny especially in those severely traumatised by the stigma of blemished skin.
