Acne treatment

Acne treatment  is a personal journey that I will work through with you to help uncover your possible causes and triggers.  There is no “one magic pill” for everyone with acne.

Acne affects up to 85% of teenagers and approximately 50% of adults.  Some common triggers of acne breakouts are changing hormones in adolescence and adulthood, harsh cleansing routines, cosmetics, stress and some foods.

Acne forms when pores become blocked, either from a dysfunctional exfoliating system, too much sebum (oil) or when thick, sticky sebum gets trapped in the pores.  The acne causing bacteria Propionibacterium acnes (p.acnes) is present on our skin however it thrives in an environment without oxygen.  When our pores become blocked the bacteria multiplies rapidly causing inflamed red spots.

 

Acne treatments we offer at our New Plymouth clinic are:

 

HYDRO-DERMABRASION (MICRODERMABRASION)
30 min | $89
50 mins  | $139 (face and neck, or chest)

Experience the future in microdermabrasion. This is exfoliation technology at its finest, giving you brighter, younger and more beautiful skin.

Combining a diamond tip and liquid exfoliation, this treatment delivers exceptional results.  It nourishes the skin with intense hydrating, skin corrective infusions that are tailored to your individual skin concerns.  Hydro-dermabrasion gives immediately visible improvements with no downtime.

A full treatment includes a double cleanse, a peel (which is enhanced by using the bT-micro ultrasonic device) and an infusion of targeted, skin corrective ingredients to accelerate your results.  Perfect for all skin types.

To enhance your results I highly recommend adding on an LED treatment to Finish

This advanced light therapy restores the skin’s cells back to optimum health, reduces inflammation, speeds up healing and helps stimulate the production of collagen and elastin.

Blue Light Therapy is a must have for anyone wanting to clear inflammatory acne. It targets and kills the acne-causing bacteria, Propionibacteriumacnes (p. acnes).

Using the Red Light mode stimulates a chain of events to increase collagen production. This aids in skin tightening, and plumping up fine lines, giving you a refreshed and firmed complexion. Our light treatments also administer near Infrared Light that helps speed up the healing process, fights the signs of aging, and replenishes the skins cells, so they can work at an optimum level. A perfect skin pick me up for everyone.
