Say goodbye to acne with ClearSkin™
Acne is caused when the pores in your skin become blocked with dead skin cells, oil, dirt and bacteria. Each of these pores is where a hair follicle lives, alongside a sebaceous gland which produces natural oils (sebum) which travel up the hair and help to keep your skin lubricated and soft – a natural moisturiser. Acne occurs because some people produce too much of this sebum – hormones during puberty, pregnancy and the contraceptive pill can also trigger or aggravate this increased oil production. A combination of too much sebum, dead skin accumulation and acne causing bacteria – propionbacterium acnes (p.acnes) – conspire to clog everything up so the oil cannot escape, and a pimple or pustule appears.
If this wasn’t bad enough, often these spots go on to cause scarring in the skin which can look like small, sunken craters. Active acne in combination with acne scarring can be socially debilitating for many people and sufferers often have low self-esteem. Knowing that there is a solution can be life-changing.
CLEAR MY SKIN NOW!
ClearSkin is the first technology in aesthetic medicine to combine an 1540nm wavelength erbium glass (Er:Glass) non-ablative laser with contact cooling and vacuum technology, which is delivered all at the same time to target acne with long-lasting results. It can be used on the face, as well as other acne-prone areas of the body, such as the back. It’s suitable for all skin types and both men and women.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The laser light penetrates deeply into the skin and targets the sebum producing sebaceous glands to reduce the over-production of oil. The heat that the laser produces also destroys the p.acnes bacteria which are causing the acne. While this is going on, the vacuum cleans the area by extracting all the dirt and debris that is clogging up the pores. To protect the skin from any damage during treatment, contact cooling is added. This makes the treatment comfortable and almost painless.
TALK TO ME ABOUT SCARRING?
The added benefit from ClearSkin treatment is that whilst we use it to target active acne, the heat generated by the laser also stimulates the production of new collagen in the skin which has an effect on reducing acne scarring and rebuilding the skin’s surface. As well as treating your acne, you can expect to see a smoother complexion with no side effects and lasting results.
