Raising awareness amongst healthcare professionals?

You may have heard some debates recently in the news about the impact of acne and acne scarring on a person’s confidence. The debates centre around if we are doing enough for acne sufferers to help regain confidence and get their skin back on track. There have been complaints that the NHS doesn’t offer enough successful treatment options for teenage acne, or adult acne. There have also been reports of more severe side effects (although these are rare) from the use of Isotretinoin, commonly prescribed for acne treatment.

SkinBase can help

We want to help educate people on the accessible (and affordable) treatment options available. With the help of a qualified therapist, SkinBase IPL and MD treatments offer fantastic results on acne and acne scarring. These treatments can transform your life and your looks. Each person’s skin is assessed on a case by case basis but changes to both lifestyle and skincare routine as well as a course of treatments can see vast improvements to the condition of your skin, dealing with any scarring and pigmentation issues too.

Let us clarify, however, for some people Isotretinoin is absolutely the right treatment, but for others, a less drastic non-invasive treatment could resolve your skin issues and help to rebalance the skin without the need for further treatment.

 SkinBase MD

Not a lot of people know about the positive results that a course of SkinBase Microdermabrasion (MD) treatments can bring for acne and acne scarring. This is not just an anti-ageing facial. Many clients that have suffered from acne and acne scarring have had their lives turned around for the better after completing a course of MD facials. This 30-minute facial is fast, effective and pleasant to receive. The treatment is performed every 7-10 days and an improvement can be seen after each visit. Acne is improved and acne scarring fades, skin tone is more even and surface pigmentation diminished. A course of 6-20 treatments may be required depending on the extent of the acne/acne scarring.

SkinBase IPL

During an IPL treatment, yellow, green and red light is emitted in a series of short pulses. This destroys the bacteria that live in the skin and cause inflammation. The red light directly targets the overactive sebaceous glands that block pores and cause outbreaks of pustules. Collagen production is stimulated in the area, helping to improve the appearance of acne scarring. We have seen some staggering results with SkinBase IPL treating acne and this treatment is revolutionising acne treatment. Results are long-lasting. A course of 3-4 treatments is recommended at 2-3 week intervals to achieve the best results. Find your nearest SkinBase Therapist.
