How can you help manage active acne?
If you’re troubled with breakouts then we can support you with salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide skin care products, which are good for clearing whiteheads and pustules, and an oral supplement called Accumax, which when used with a recommended healthy eating plan, helps promote healthy skin. We would also recommend that smokers should stop - as smoking has been linked to increased adult acne breakouts.
If you have chronic acne you should always consult your GP first, who can check for underlying health issues. GPs often prescribe Roaccutane as an acne treatment which has many negative side effects. So, if you wish to avoid Roaccutane - then we can help manage your acne symptoms.
Our help would be a combination of skin care, supplements and professional chemical peels combined with Dermalux. For women experiencing adult acne caused by hormonal changes associated with perimenopause we can prescribe Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) to reduce the effects of hormonal imbalances.
What about acne scarring?
The most important aspect of managing active acne is to reduce the formation of acne scars. Once you have clear skin - the last thing you want are scars as a constant reminder of past problems, particularly as acne scars are very hard to conceal with makeup.
For clients who do have acne scars we can help significantly reduce the scarring with microneedling treatments.
