Acne (Skin Breakouts) & Acne Scarring Treatments

Acne (skin breakouts) is a skin condition or disease caused by the body’s inflammatory defences being unable to deal with a combination of oil overproduction and a concentration of bacteria on and near the skin surface.

When this occurs, an outbreak can result in a wide range of symptoms such as blackheads, whiteheads, redness spots, unsightly and painful pustules, painful to touch nodules, and even cysts. Furthermore, unless there is an early and effective intervention, it may not be possible to prevent a possible acne scar.

 

Anyone may experience some form of acne during their lives. A rough estimate is that 80% of people between the ages of 11-30 have been affected by it. Typical triggers are hormonal changes, and this is why acne is more likely to manifest in those going through puberty or pregnancy (but not always).

 

While acne associated primarily with the teenage years, it can also affect children and older people. Most people will have had occasional mild acne breakouts at some point in their lives, with many individuals experiencing extra severe episodes.

 

Affecting anyone of any age, sex or race, Acne (skin breakouts) and Acne scarring are not usually harmful. However, they can often cause the affected person to feel embarrassed by these if they are very apparent, leading to a lack of self-confidence.

 

Our clinic aims to manage most acne problems using appropriate treatments and skincare products while avoiding the more radical step of oral medications. Because there is no known absolute cure, we are dedicated to improving and managing acne symptoms.

 

Controlling repeated outbreaks allows our clients to go about their lives with as little concern and worry about their skin as possible. With this troublesome, persistent condition being properly controlled, a client’s confidence in their personal appearance can be demonstrably restored.

 

With it, they can expect more enjoyment in life. Fortunately, over recent years, a growing number of successful treatments for acne sufferers have been introduced.

Frequently Asked Questions

Several treatments are available at Dr PJ Aesthetic Clinic based on acne’s severity and the scar’s depth. You will require a personal consultation with a specialised aesthetician before a treatment plan is drawn up. Some of our most popular Acne and acne scar treatments are IPL Acne Treatment, HydrO2 Facial (3D Clear Skin HydraFacial), Microdermabrasion, Acne-Clearing LED (Celluma) Light Therapy, Acne-Clearing Microdermabrasion Plus LED Light Therapy, Carbon Peel (Q-Switch Laser), DermaPen, Environ Acne Cool Peel, Lanèche Glycopeel Facial (50%), Glycolic Acid peel, Salicylic Acid Peel, Skin-lightening, Anti-Acne Products.

In recent years, the number and variety of acne treatments have increased significantly. The best treatment can only be determined in a private consultation; however, great care will be taken to recommend an expert course that benefits your skin′s appearance and contributes towards your health to improve your confidence. Of course, the severity of scarring and the client′s acne will help determine the best course of action. A personal consultation with a specialist acne aesthetician will be required to create a bespoke, practical approach.  

There is no cure for acne at this time, but the symptoms can be dramatically alleviated, and significant improvement can be achieved by following our treatment plan. During your specialist consultation, options will be discussed, and our aesthetic acne specialist will recommend the best treatment for your specific condition and the positive, realistic expectations you can anticipate.

Large blemishes on the skin can remain once acne has subsided. These can be made worse because of the unconscious picking the spots which can leave crater-like dimples, lumps, and bumps. This situation can be made substantially worse for the sufferer if the areas are scratched or picked at while the disease is still active. Acne scarring is the most common complaint by teenagers.

It is by far much more effective and more comfortable to treat scars while they are still fresh and before they have ″matured″ and getting difficult to be treated.

There are some medications such as oral Isotretinoin (Roaccutane) which would contraindicate immediate acne treatment.  For instance, if you have used oral Isotretinoin (Roaccutane) recently, you may be advised to wait approximately six months before beginning a course of treatment with us.

Because of the extensive range of treatments and the unique nature of each client′s skin, our aestheticians will approach your case on an individual ″address and treat″ method.  This method frequently achieves the best overall result. We appreciate the serious psychological effect caused by severe acne scars on patients.  As a result, while we will strive to find rapid improvement methods, we also want this to be the best long-term solution for you and reaching this goal takes commitment and time.
