Acne Treatment

I have a selection of tried and tested products and supplements which target acne successful. Correct home care is an essential part of achieving the results. It may be necessary to include a tried and tested supplement which targets acne, with excellent results.

What causes acne?

Acne is multifaceted and the cause can be a single reason or a combination of the following most common reasons:

  • Hormonal
  • Food Intolerances
  • Vitamin deficiencies
  • Essential Fatty Acid deficiency
  • Stress related
  • Keratinisation (surface dead cells)
  • Incorrect skin care
  • Plus many more less common reasons…

LED light therapy

The LED light is a low level light which does not harm the eyes. The light absorbed by the skin energises skin cells and can be clearly seen in treatments for:

  • Skin rejuvenation, toning, tightening and texturing
  • Acne
  • Post care healing
  • Collagen stimulation and wrinkle reduction

I often use the LED light at the end of a facial to help product penetrate, calm the skin or to kick start collagen production which tightens acne scars.

IPL acne treatment

A normal hair and sebaceous gland can become blocked. Bacteria called P. Acnes live on the sebum and produce fatty acids. An infection sets in and causes inflammation – i.e. a spot!
 
Acne treatments with the Ellipse Intense Pulse Light is very effective especially for stubborn or long term acne. The light from the flash-lamp heats up the haemoglobin in the blood vessels that supply oxygen to the sebaceous glands. This causes a minor injury to the sebaceous glands which slows down production of sebum. The light eradicates bacteria immediately.
Three or four treatments are necessary 3 weeks apart.
