Acne – Laser Treatment
The body produces a hormone called ‘androgen’. This stimulates sebaceous glands to produce an oily substance called ‘sebum’. Over production of sebum can cause pores to block, resulting in breakouts from oil being trapped. Inflammation can be caused as a result due to the bacteria being trapped with the mixture of hair and sebum in the skin.
Ellipse Laser successfully treats Acne by reducing the blood supply to the sebaceous gland, which slows down the production of sebum. This happens by short, safe busts of intense pulsed light being directed at the skin. The wavelengths used are absorbed by the haemoglobin in the fine blood vessels that supply the sebaceous gland.
ClearSkin by Harmony XL lasers is for the treatment of active acne; the laser tip operates with integrated suction and contact cooling. The wavelength of the laser achieves deep penetration and the selective targeting of water-containing tissue to induce a rise in dermal temperature. In acne treatment, the dermal heating achieved disrupts the sebaceous glands while involution of the glands induces a long-term remission of the acne.
Obagi Clenziderm is a prescription strength homecare system consisting of 3 products to be used morning and night. Results can be seen just after 1 week.

The wavelength of the laser achieves deep penetration and the selective targeting of water-containing tissue to induce a rise in dermal temperature. In acne treatment, the dermal heating achieved disrupts the sebaceous glands while involution of the glands induces a long-term remission of the acne.
Results can start to be seen after a few sessions but continue to improve over the course of treatment
Results are long lasting if a good home care routine with tailored skin products are followed
We recommend one treatment every 6 months after completing a course of treatment to maintain the results
The treatment isn’t recommended before going on a sunny holiday due to the skin being temporarily light sensitive after the treatment, meaning the risk of sunburn increases

From the moment I called to make my initial consultation the staff were friendly and very helpful directing me to the right practitioner. I saw a lady called Harriet who put a programme in place for my skin. She was great! After just 2 weeks I can see such a huge improvement and even my husband has notice! I have tried and tested many products an treatments in the past but nothing has ever worked. Im a very happy customer!
