Acne occurs when natural oil secreting glands (sebaceous glands) in the skin become inflamed and infected by bacteria. This typically occurs in adolescence with the hormonal changes associated with puberty and can affect up to 90% of teenagers. The most common areas for break out are the face, shoulders, back and chest.
However, acne is not however just a problem for teenagers; both men and women can suffer from its debilitating effects at various stages of their lives due to hormonal change.
A course of laser treatment can significantly reduce the condition and improve your appearance and confidence.

Once the pores become blocked they are colonised by anaerobic bacteria (these bacteria only thrive in an oxygen free environment). The reaction between the laser light and the bacteria destroys this oxygen free environment and therefore the bacteria can no longer survive.
The Nd Yag laser safely penetrates the skin to the optimal treatment depth to thermally and selectively destroy the over-active sebaceous gland. Additionally, the laser treatment also reduces the release of histamines which are the cause of the intense red inflamed appearance that so many acne sufferers have to contend with.
What to expect at your acne treatment appointments
Laser treatment for acne is simple, safe and clinically proven. The ND yag laser light is directed towards the affected area and then moves across it in brushstrokes. Your skin may feel warm during the treatment but there is no discomfort.
Once the bacteria are destroyed, your skin will soon clear and resume its normal appearance.
After the treatment
Laser treatments are at the leading edge of acne technology and we’ve seen some outstanding outcomes. However, for optimum results it is important to take care of your skin both during and after the treatment with a good skin hygiene routine. As part of our consultation we will advise you ongoing skincare and cleansing to ensure you see the best results.
Treatments should be scheduled 1 week apart; you will usually require 4+ treatments depending on the severity of the acne breakout.
