What is the Secret to Acne Free Skin?

age spot 1Blemish free skin is something that many of us dream of, yet most of us don’t possess. Acne and subsequent scarring is something that many of us struggle with, and it can be extremely difficult to control. So what treatments are out there that can help you keep acne and acne scarring at bay? Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic has put together its guide to the best acne treatments that can help you.

Nlite laser

The first step on the road to creating healthy, acne-free skin is to tackle the condition itself. There are many treatments that can offer patients a way to fight the bacteria that causes acne; at Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic, we offer Nlite laser treatment.
Nlite laser treatment works as an effective solution to acne by penetrating the skin with high-energy beams that can transfer energy into different areas of the facial tissue in order to tackle a number of facial issues. Nlite laser treatment kills the bacteria in the skin that contributes to the development of acne, whilst also reducing the production of sebum from the sebaceous glands, resulting in a visibly improved appearance to acne prone skin.

Fractional laser resurfacing

When tackling the tricky issues of acne scarring, Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic offers a number of treatments to help you: one of these is fractional laser resurfacing. This treatment aims to improve the appearance of a number of skin imperfections such as acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, age spots and sun damage. At Canterbury Skin and Laser, we use the Lux 1540™ Fractional device to perform the treatment. This is a 1540 nm erbium glass fibre non-ablative laser that delivers the rejuvenation results that patients are looking for through micro-beams.

 
The Lux 1540™ can penetrate up to 1mm into the skin, whilst keeping the skin’s surface intact, meaning patients can achieve the rejuvenated results they want with no exterior damage.

Dermaroller treatment

The secret to resilient skin is high levels of collagen, but; this can be hard to maintain as we get older or following skin damage. A great way to combat the look of acne scarring is through the growth of new collagen, which can be achieved through dermaroller treatment.

 
Dermaroller is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that aims to improve the appearance of various forms of skin damage (including acne scarring) as well as the signs of ageing. The treatment achieves this by creating number of punctures to the surface of the skin in order to stimulate the body’s collagen production. This new found collagen growth can vastly improve the appearance of acne scarring, as well as restoring a youthful volume to the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

Chemical peels

If your acne condition has left you with not only scarring but also an uneven skin tone, a chemical peel might be the solution for you. Chemical peels aims to improve the appearance of a number of skin imperfections including acne scarring, uneven skin tones, age spots and deep set wrinkles. The treatment does this by applying a layer of a chemical solution to the face that effectively peels to damage layers of skin and reveal the youthful and blemish-free skin that lies beneath.

 
At Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic we offer two levels of chemical peels to combat your skin complaints (superficial and medium). Which strength of chemical peel is right for your needs will depend on the condition of your skin and the level of results you are aiming to a achieve, which can be discussed in more detail during a consultation.
