More Than Skin Deep
The effects of acne are much more than skin deep. With around 95% of Australians will be affected by some degree of acne in their lives, acne is one of the most common skin problems worldwide.
While most cases of acne resolve, approximately 5% of people will be affected severely, and may leave scarring on the skin. To treat acne, we combine the below treatments and products with assessing your diet, activities, current skincare routine and other lifestyle factors so we can break the acne cycle.
Treatments for acne and acne scarring include:
- Byonik laser
- Chemical peels
- Subcision to the scars
- Skin needling
These are the sorts of results you can expect when working with us
Frequently Asked Questions
What causes acne?
Our skin contains oil glands (called sebaceous glands), which produce a protective oil (sebum) for our skin. The sebum reaches the surface of our skin through tiny channels called pores. Our hair grows up through these channels too, and the oil uses the hair to reach the surface. When all goes well, the skin produces just the right amount of sebum to protect our skin. If the oil gets trapped in the pore, it allows bacteria that normally live on the skin to grow in the pore opening. When this happens, pores become blocked and pimples develop. Factors such as hormones, some medications and diet (to a degree) can exacerbate acne.
