Finding Acne Treatments That Work For You

Despite what most of us think, acne is a skin concern that can affect people of all ages, wreaking havoc on your complexion and self-confidence. But here’s the silver lining – with advancements in skincare technology, you don’t have to wage a solo battle against those pesky breakouts. At Skin Innovation Clinic, we’re armed with state-of-the-art acne treatments to help you reveal your best skin.

Let’s explore what acne is, its underlying causes and the cutting-edge in-clinic treatments that can bring you the clarity you’ve been seeking.

Understanding Acne

Acne doesn’t discriminate. It can affect people of all ages, genders and walks of life. Its main features include open and closed comedones (those pesky blackheads and whiteheads), papules, pustules, nodules and, in severe cases, cysts. These unwelcome visitors tend to take up residence in areas where sebaceous (oil) glands are in abundance, such as the face, forehead, upper back and chest.

The formation of acne is a complex interplay of factors. It often begins with the trapping of sebum (your skin’s natural oil) and dead skin cells within hair follicles. The presence of bacteria in the epidermis further complicates matters. Inflammation can also be a factor, leading to those red, angry breakouts and the possible need for acne treatments.

What Causes Acne?

Acne and acne treatments aren’t one-size-fits-all. Triggers can vary from person to person, but several common culprits are often at play:

Hormonal Imbalances
Fluctuations in hormone levels, especially during menstrual cycles, can trigger acne breakouts.

Cosmetics and Hair Products
Certain hair and cosmetic products can clog pores, exacerbating acne. Opt for non-comedogenic and oil-free options to minimise this risk.

Environmental Factors
Pollution and high humidity levels can contribute to acne by promoting the buildup of impurities on your skin.

While it’s not the sole cause, some studies suggest a link between high-glycemic diets and acne.

Emotional stress can wreak havoc on your skin, potentially worsening existing acne.

Our Top Acne Treatments

At Skin Innovation Clinic, we offer some advanced acne treatments. One of our top recommendations is an AlumierMD chemical peel. These peels are designed to rejuvenate your skin, unclog pores and tackle acne head-on through bespoke formulas that are tailored to your unique skin concerns. They are particularly effective for managing acne, even in its milder forms. Here’s what these peels can do for you:

AlumierMD chemical peels gently exfoliate dead skin cells, clearing the way for healthier, blemish-free skin to shine through.

Reduced Inflammation
This type of treatment can help calm the inflammation associated with acne, reducing the redness and discomfort often experienced during breakouts.

Targeted Treatment
Whether you’re dealing with occasional flare-ups or persistent acne, our experts can customise the strength and formulation of your peel to address your specific needs.

Another of our exceptional acne treatments is Hydrafacial. Renowned for its skin-rejuvenating capabilities, Hydrafacial offers a specialised booster called Britenol that can work wonders for acne-prone skin. Britenol is a game-changer for those dealing with acne-related pigmentation and uneven skin tone. Here’s why you’ll love it:

Pigmentation Correction
Britenol’s powerful blend of alpha-arbutin and Vitamin C targets pigmentation issues, helping to restore a balanced, radiant complexion.

Acne Management
Hydrafacial’s gentle exfoliation and extraction process can help clear pores and reduce acne breakouts.

This treatment is a non-invasive, pain-free treatment, making it suitable for most skin types.

For those battling not just active acne but the aftermath it leaves behind in the form of scars, SkinPen is a revolutionary treatment you should consider. This microneedling device stimulates collagen production and helps renew skin texture, making it an excellent choice for reducing acne scarring.
