Laser Care FAQs


 Q: What Is Acne?

A: Acne is a skin disorder resulting from the action of hormones and other substances on the oil/sebaceous glands and hair follicles. These factors lead to blocked pores and outbreaks of pimples/spots. Acne effects both males and females,of all ages. It usually occurs on the face, neck, back, chest and shoulders. Although it is not a serious health issue, it is a source of significant emotional distress. Severe Acne, when left untreated can lead to permanent scarring.

 Q: What are some of the causes?

A: There are several myths surrounding the causes of Acne. Diet is often blamed for acne breakouts, this is untrue. Poor hygiene is also wrongly blamed. Puberty, pregnancy, poly-cystic ovarian syndrome, medication and stress are all contributing factors. Prescription Drugs often mask the problem. Laser is the most effective treatment to target acne from the skins surface.

 Q: How will laser work for me?

A: Our Pulsed Light Laser helps slow down the production of sebum/oil to the skin. By regulating the oil, breakouts are slowed down and eventually ceased.

For agressive/chronic acne, we may recommend the use of the prescribed creams Differin/Adapalene for one month before commencing treatment with us.

Skin clears up very quickly, scarring is hugely improved and the overall appearance of the skin is remarkable.

 Q: How long does the treatment take?

A: The average treatment time takes 30 minutes.

 Q: Can I be treated?

A: Anyone over the age of 16 years, suffering from mild to moderate and even chronic acne can benefit from our laser. It is important to be pale for the treatment, as it is more effective.
