Laser treatment isn’t the only new weapon against acne .?
Did you know that eight in 10 teenagers will develop some form of acne?
It occurs more often in boys and some cases of this common skin condition will be more severe than others.
The most common causes are genetic, hormonal, environmental and dietary factors.
Acne typically affects areas of skin where there is an over-production of oil. Pustules and papules develop as a result of blockages in follicles caused by oil and dead skin cells. This is often compounded by bacteria, which leads to inflammation and can result in scarring.
The good news is that it can be treated but it is important to seek early professional advice to avoid scarring, especially for acne that has become inflamed.
Dr Eddie Roos and the staff at Cosmetic Elegance Clinic are especially conscious of the psychological effect acne has on young lives and tailor their treatments.
“We take a holistic approach to assessment and treatment,” Dr Roos said.
“We take into consideration a person’s skin type, acne, age group and lifestyle and develop a treatment plan accordingly.
“Not all acne is the same and not all skin is the same, so there is no one treatment that will work for everyone.”
Dr Roos emphasises the importance of committing to the program recommended by your Skin Care Consultant to ensure that you get the most out of the treatment. .
