Acne is a skin condition that affects many people. It is a chronic inflammation of the sebaceous glands and hair follicles that can lead to pimples, blackheads and other blemishes on the skin. There are several treatment options that can help reduce acne, including IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) , Celluma LED therapy & acid (peel) treatments.

Acne can be a sensitive issue for many people. It occurs when hair follicles become clogged with oil and dead skin cells, leading to the formation of pimples and blackheads on the face, neck, chest and back. While acne is most common in teenagers during puberty, it can affect people of all ages. The causes of acne are complex and multifactorial. Although it is not a life-threatening condition, it can cause psychological distress and scarring, which is why we offer a friendly and welcoming atmosphere where individuals can feel comfortable discussing their concerns.
Our practice team specialises in the treatment of acne and is therefore a one stop shop for clients with moderate to severe acne.
Over the years, various treatment options have been developed to treat acne, with varying degrees of success. Three of our popular methods are IPL (Intense Pulse Light), Celluma LED therapy and chemical peels.
Acne treatment that is highly effective in reducing acne and the associated scarring. For this treatment, we can offer both intense pulses of light with IPL, Celluma light therapy, and acid (peel) treatments.
IPL (Intense Pulse Light) and Celluma LED therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses light energy to reduce and prevent acne breakouts by destroying bacteria and reducing inflammation. It involves exposing the skin to a combination of light impulses (specific wavelengths) that penetrate deep into the layers of the skin to kill acne-causing bacteria and reduce oil production.
Non-invasive treatment options for acne
Acne is a common skin condition that affects both teenagers and adults. For those looking for non-invasive treatment options, there are several options available. One such option is IPL light therapy, which uses intense pulsed light to fight bacteria and reduce inflammation in the affected area. This treatment can also help reduce the appearance of acne scars.
Celluma LED therapy is another non-invasive treatment option that uses low-level light therapy to stimulate cellular activity and reduce inflammation. This treatment can be used on all skin types and has been shown to be effective in reducing acne breakouts. Chemical peels are another non-invasive option for treating acne. These treatments use various acids to exfoliate the skin, remove dead skin cells and clear clogged pores.
Chemical peels can also help to improve the texture and tone of the skin, making it smoother and more radiant.
IPL light therapy, Celluma LED therapy and peels are effective, non-invasive treatments for acne. IPL light therapy uses a broad spectrum of light to target acne-causing bacteria, reduce inflammation and stimulate collagen production. The light penetrates deep into the skin and destroys the bacteria while leaving the surrounding tissue undamaged. This treatment is effective for all types of acne, including cystic acne.
Celluma LED therapy, on the other hand, uses specific wavelengths of blue and red light to treat acne. Blue light kills the bacteria that cause acne, while red light reduces inflammation and promotes healing. The treatment is painless and can be used on all skin types. Both IPL and Celluma LED therapies require multiple sessions to achieve optimal results. However, they are safe and effective alternatives to harsher treatments such as oral medications or topical creams with potential side effects.
Chemical peels are a type of non-invasive treatment for acne that use specific acids to remove the outer layer of skin. They work by sloughing off dead skin cells and unclogging pores, which can help reduce the appearance of acne and prevent future breakouts. This process unclogs pores, removes blemishes and encourages the growth of new, healthier skin. Chemical peels come in varying strengths depending on the ingredients used and the depth of the peel. They work by sloughing off dead skin cells and unclogging pores, which can help reduce the appearance of acne and prevent future breakouts. There are different types of chemical peels, including glycolic acid, salicylic acid and lactic acid peels.
Each type has its own benefits and precautions, depending on the skin type and severity of acne. Glycolic acid peels are particularly effective in treating mild to moderate acne, while salicylic acid peels are better for oily or combination skin types. Lactic acid peels are gentler than other types and may be more suitable for sensitive skin.
IPL Celluma LED therapy uses light energy to reduce and prevent acne breakouts, while chemical peels remove dead skin cells, clean clogged pores and promote the growth of new, healthy skin.
Both forms of light therapy and our peels have their advantages and disadvantages. IPL treatments can be effective in treating severe acne and can also improve other skin problems such as pigmentation spots or scars. LED therapy, on the other hand, is a gentle and painless treatment method that can be used on all skin types.
However, it is important to note that treatment results may vary from person to person and may depend on various factors such as the severity of acne, skin type and the individual’s skin reactivity to the treatment. Some people may also be allergic to certain components of the treatment, so it is important to have a personal, informative consultation beforehand.
