Treatments Available from The Skintique Acne Clinic.
Acne is a skin issue affecting millions of people, particularly teenagers and sometimes adults, with around 80% of people being affected by acne at one time or another in their lives. It mainly affects women, with 35% of those between the age of 30 and 40 years. A large number of dermatology consultations are booked due to skin concerns around acne.
Acne is caused by the oil glands (sebaceous glands) located next to hair follicles releasing too much oil/sebum, which in turn can trap bacteria and skin cells. Everyone has sebaceous glands on their skin, however people who suffer with acne tend to have much larger glands which tend to release more oil into the skin. Some bacteria are able to thrive in these oily conditions and can cause inflammation of the skin along with pimples or spots.
Having acne is not actually harmful to the skin. However, it can be a highly emotional problem for many, as the face is the main area affected by acne. Symptoms of acne can lead to stress and anxiety, negative self-image and low self-esteem. Luckily, there are lots of treatments available to help clear the skin and get rid of the acne and the Skintique Acne Clinic in Leicester have some of the best acne treatments available.
Treatments for Acne
Many people will try over-the-counter medication, topical skin creams, prescribed antibiotics and occasionally somewhat dubious home remedies! While some of these might work in the short term for some people, most treatments for acne come with a whole host of nasty side effects including excessively drying the skin, mood swings, irritation and more. Here at Skintique Acne Clinic, we offer highly effective acne treatments to clear your skin for good, which gets to work from session one.
Clinical studies have found that the main cause of acne is down to blocked pores. There is only so much you can do with over-the-counter solutions for this, and the best acne treatment will remove sebum, kill bacteria and unblock your pores.
Our TheraClear system works through not only clearing any blockages in your pores, but by also destroying any bacteria present in the pores, making it an incredibly effective solution. Using different light treatments, we are able to target the sebaceous glands to kill the bacteria associated with acne, reduce the oil production by the skin and provide immediate relief from the pain of acne cysts.
Most clients will require a number of treatments to clear their acne, which we can recommend based on the severity of your acne. We believe that acne treatment should be non-invasive, non-painful and not require significant ‘downtime’. As with many acne treatments, there may be some redness directly after the treatment, but this is only temporary. The majority of other well known treatments such as Accutane, medications and antibiotics take many weeks or months to see any results – TheraClear offers visible improvements within a matter of days.
The Skintique Acne Clinic’s HydraFacial treatment helps to improve active acne by reducing the build-up of excess oils, bacteria, removing congestion over a course of treatment and exfoliating dead skin.
This incredible, non-invasive treatment detoxifies, rejuvenates and protects your skin for immediate results and long-term benefits without downtime or irritation.
Fractora is a superior solution that decreases wrinkles, improves complexion and reduces imperfections such as acne and acne scars. The treatment is minimally invasive with almost no downtime, and will improve skin complexion and texture for a more radiant and youthful appearance.
Visible results can be seen immediately, but typically after two weeks the most noticeable results appear. Improvements continue up to three months after treatment.
Our Acne protocols use a combination of different treatments to give you clear and healthy skin
