Acne is a general term for eruptive skin disease. There are many types of acne including blackheads, whiteheads, papules, pustules, and cystic. Acne generally occurs in teenagers and young adults, Sometimes it is resistant in adult females due to hormonal changes and persistent though it can affect anyone.
Though the exact cause of acne has not been determined, research has shown that four key elements contribute to acne. They are: excess oil, clogged pores, bacteria, and inflammation. During adolescence, the body begins to develop more sebum oil, which is produced to ensure our skin does not dry out. When sebum cannot flow freely to the skin, clogged pores result. Bacteria already found on the skin’s surface, flourish in the excess oil, and causes inflammation.

The number of treatments necessary varies from person to person. A specific number of treatments during active acne cannot be guaranteed as acne is a complicated condition with physiological and psychological components. However, most clients achieve a significant reduction in the severity and frequency of outbreaks in 6 sessions. Typically course of 3-6 IPL Acne scarring sessions will significantly improve the skin texture and scarring appearance. Glycolic Peel can be done on its own as a course of 6 treatments with monthly maintenance thereafter. Deep Skin Exfoliation is recommended twice a month for this skin condition.
Another successful treatment for Acne Scarring offered in our clinic is Fractional Laser. This treatment can provide drastic results improving the appearances of the scars. Fractional Laser creates new collagen and elastin to be generated and deposited called collagenesis, however the added benefit of new capillary growth is also a result which can improve blood supply to the area which helps create healthier existing skin as well as provide a healthy foundation for the new skin. The physical nature of “skin-needling” breaks up this fibrous and uneven scar tissue and stimulates the growth of new tissue. While each patient is different and conditions will vary, the typical treatment regimen will consist of 3-6 treatments.
