LASER TREATMENTS

Acne

Throughout life, acne has physically and emotionally scarred millions. It is the most common skin condition with an incidence of over 90% in adolescents. Acne may however appear for the first time in the mid twenties, or even later, and persist in a significant number of people into their forties or even fifties.

The exact cause of acne is unknown, but the following factors are considered important

1. The sebaceous gland produces more oil resulting in a generally oily complexion.

2. The dead skin, near the pore through which the hairs emerge becomes sticky, partially or completely blocking the pore.

3. The bacteria P.Acnes multiplies in the retained oil causing inflammation (seen as pimples, zits or cysts).

4. Inflammation damages the cells that make collagen resulting in thinning of the skin and sunken scars. Occasionally collagen production increases, resulting in thickened raised scars.

Enhance use a co2 Laser to treat active acne and acne scarring. Our fully trained surgeons and nurse have years of experience, so you can rest assured you are in the safest of hands.

The treatment of active acne largely depends on the severity of the condition and often several treatments are recommended concurrently. A full medical assessment is essential as your treatment plan for active acne may include prescription medication, either topical or oral, co2 laser , medical grade cosmeceuticals, chemical peels or microdermabrasion.

Because we offer an extensive range of acne treatments we can truly recommend the most effective procedure for your skin. Whichever treatment we recommend, you can be assured we are not using it because it is all we have to offer but because it is the best choice for you.
