Red blemishes: Active acne

take control of active acne

Laser treatment has made a big difference to our patients. Many of whom were painfully conscious of their active acne before coming to our clinic. We’ve always been a pioneer in treating red blemishes on the skin. So you can trust in both our state-of-the-art lasers and the care of our specialist consultants and nurses in reducing and taking control of your acne. Please book your free consultation below to find out how laser treatment can help you.

Is this the right treatment for me?

Laser treatment is suitable for almost anyone but isn’t advisable when your skin is tanned. We can certainly treat you if your skin is naturally dark. During your free consultation, we’ll discuss the options and estimate how much it will cost. If we don’t believe you can get the results you’d like, we’ll tell you immediately.

How many treatments will I need?

We recommend two treatments, 4–6 weeks apart. Some people like to repeat this every 6 or 12 months to keep on top of their acne. We’ll advise how many treatments you’ll need at your free consultation.

What happens during treatment?

Your consultant or specialist nurse will meet you and guide you through each stage of the treatment. We may begin with different small test patches of different laser settings to see which gives the best results and take photos to monitor your progress.

How does it feel?

Most people describe the feeling of the laser on the skin as like being flicked by an elastic band or a small pin prick. We use an air cooling system to make it more comfortable and anaesthetic cream if needed. Our qualified medical team are able to offer local/general anaesthetics.

How does it work?

Laser light targets the blood vessels, reducing the redness and also acts directly on the bacterium propionibacterium acnes, which is one of the main cause of active acne.

What happens afterwards?

Your skin may look red in places, or even have a slightly bruised appearance, but this usually fades in 2 or 3 days. The appearance of the treated area may continue to improve over the following 2–3 months. But don’t worry, we’ll explain all this and your aftercare at your free consultation.
