Acne is an issue that affects millions of people of different ages. According to the NHS, about 95% of people aged 11 to 30 are affected by acne to some extent, and about 3% of adults have acne over the age of 35.
Acne can be an incredibly difficult condition to manage as it has a multitude of causes – from hormonal fluctuations, to excess sebum production, dead skin cells, and bacteria that can create blocked pores, blackheads, whiteheads, cysts and pustules.
While not harmful to the skin or body, acne can have detrimental effects to the mental health of the sufferer, especially if the face is the primary area affected. These effects can also be exacerbated by the challenges often faced in acne resolution – not all systems available for effective and long-term acne resolution are appropriate for everyone, as the management will depend on the cause.
The Skintique Acne Clinic in Leicester, have some of the best acne treatments available and include a range of effective, non-invasive, pain and downtime-free treatments that can get to the root of your skin concern. With these clinically-proven systems, you can enjoy long-term resolution of your concerns without the side effects and potential new issues often created by topical products, over-the-counter medication and prescribed antibiotics that may only provide temporary relief. Once Dr. Natalia Hancock and the Skintique clinic team have established the most beneficial treatment for you during your consultation, your individual requirements can be formulated into a tailored treatment plan that is unique to your skin’s needs.
AlumierMD Chemical Peels
AlumierMD offer an innovative selection of chemical peels, containing medical-grade ingredients to soften and brighten the skin. AlumierMD’s peels can be customised to alleviate specific skin concerns like acne, and enable enhanced exfoliation to reduce inflammation and encourage new cell stimulation. These peels are an excellent choice for loosening the build of up dead skin cells, removing bacteria, and controlling sebum production – all of which can contribute to acne if left unmanaged.
Fractora Ablative Radio Frequency by InMode
Fractora combines radio-frequency fractional technology with microneedling, and delivers heat energy into the deeper layers of the skin.This cutting-edge process encourages an inflammatory reaction in the skin, stimulating its production of collagen, and, in addition to firming the skin, reducing the size of oil glands to limit the production of sebum, for resurfaced skin and an improved complexion.
Skintique offer an extensive HydraFacial menu, with customisable facial treatments designed to rebuild and restore the skin from within, through the use of powerful clinically-proven ingredients.
These facial treatments can be tailored to address specific skin concerns such as acne, and combine innovative technology with an extensive six-stage process, essentially comprising six facial treatments in one procedure. These steps include exfoliation, detoxification and extraction – to encourage collagen production, draw out impurities and decongest the skin, and prevent the buildup of excess oil.
Plasma Shower with Plasma BT Technology
The Plasma Shower system utilises Plasma BT technology to sterilize and boost the skin through the administration of a stream of ionised gas with a plasma probe. The application of this ionised gas in targeted areas reduces the production of oil, eliminates the bacteria that can contribute to acne, and stimulates the turnover of skin cells for reduced inflammation, and improved overall skin appearance.
TheraClear with Vacuum and IPL Technology
The TheraClear acne system combines a filtered blue light IPL with an advanced vacuum to improve the condition and appearance of the skin from deep within. TheraClear’s filtered IPL destroys acne-causing bacteria and suppresses the oil glands that may be over-producing, while its advanced vacuum flushes out the skin, unclogging the pores of debris – such as dead skin cells or excess oil – that contribute to the development of acne.
