I love acne! Pimples, spots, zits - whatever you call it, I love it... treating it that is. As someone who suffered from acne for most of my adult life, I understand very well the impact it can have. I remember days in my twenties when my skin was so bad I'd avoid saying hello to people because I felt too embarrassed.
I guess that's one of the reasons why I now really love treating people with acne. These days there really are some fantastic solutions for acne, from our Aspect Dr skin care (which is what cured my acne, after years of trying every skin care under the sun) to prescription skin care and our Dimalux LED light therapy. Reducing refined sugars in your diet can also help, as can Fish Oil supplements.
At Skin Resus we have a zero tolerance approach to acne and aim to see skin clear (ie no new acne outbreaks) within 4 weeks. We usually see an improvement within 2 weeks. The first place to start is with a free consultation with one of our Registered Nurses. We'll assess the severity and discuss treatment options. Mild acne will usually respond to our Aspect Dr skin care - usually the Problem Skin Kit + Multi B (Niacinamide) Serum. For moderate acne one of our Doctors will usually prescribe Duac Gel combined with a course of Dimalux LED light therapy. This is 2 sessions (1 red light, 1 blue light) per week for 4 weeks. For those with severe acne who are at risk of scarring, our Doctors may refer to a dermatologist for Roaccutane.
Before and After Acne Treatment at Skin Resus
We regularly see really great results with these approaches. If you suffer from acne or know someone who does, come in and talk to one of our team and let's clear it up! We can also help where acne scarring has occurred, with treatments such as IPL, MicroPen skin needling and Fraxel and Erbium Lasers.That's a whole other story so I'll write about that in my next blog.
