Acne is a common disorder that can affect anyone but often presents in teens and young adults. It can be a persistent and upsetting condition. Acne can affect many areas of the body, including the face, neck, back, chest and shoulders as whiteheads, blackheads, papules, pustules, and nodules.
Causes of acne can be triggered by specific hormonal sensitivities. Patients who suffer from severe acne will likely already be seeing their GP and a specialist dermatologist, and treatments can range from lifestyle changes to topical and systemic medications.
we have many clients who present with acne scarring. We have introduced our medical-grade micro-needling system to our treatment list, in order to target and treat acne scars. Microneedling is a safe course of treatment that involves the use of high-speed microneedles into the outer surface of the skin. This creates small channels that allow serums to go into the lower layers of the skin. This combination of micro-trauma and application of serum into the skin forces the body to re-heal itself.
One of the biggest problems for acne sufferers is the scarring that can develop and remains long after their spots have gone. This is a result of the body's natural defense and healing mechanism, which can result in unsightly scars.
