Acne Vulgaris is very common with around 9 out of 10 teenagers developing some degree of acne and conditions range from mild to very severe.
In most cases, acne lasts around 4 or 5 years, however sometimes it can continue to be a problem into and through the adult years.Acne may also present itself in later life even when there has been no history of spots in the teenage years. This is known as ‘Late Onset Acne’. We understand that living and coping with acne and any resultant scarring can have a negative impact on your social, personal and professional relationships as well as reducing your own self-esteem. The aim of all our acne treatments are to:
- Unplug blocked pores
- Kill or reduce bacteria
- Reduce skin inflammation
- Prevent sebum being made

What treatment will I have?This depends on how severe your acne is and what treatments you have had before. Above all we are a medical facility and will give you the treatment that is best suited to your condition.
Does the treatment hurt?Patients say the AFT420 treatment feels like a small elastic band against their skin and most people can tolerate this with no problems. Those having N-Lite Laser treatment say they feel a slight warming and tingling sensation. The medical skin peel may leave your skin feeling sensitive but you will be told what products you can use to calm the skin.
How many treatments will I need?This depends on the severity of your acne. Some people notice a dramatic difference after just one treatment whereas others will need some top-up treatments before the acne is gone completely.
