Research suggests that when correcting the skin, we aim to regulate with a neutral consistent simple skin care routine to ensure it is a habit we can continue with always. The skin works to change and regulate over a 6-12-week period with results by 6 months. Sometimes when we are managing the environmental impact on our skin and the bodies influence, we need a little more help.

Treating acne means we need to address the hormonal influence on excess oil production, increase cell turnover and reduce potential skin bacteria leading to inflammation. Hormones are difficult to target with topical skin care and skin treatments so in this situation we recommend a holistic approach and speaking with a great naturopath who can help with interventions to target your inner health. There are lots of people who are knowledgeable but we do recommend utilising people who are specialists in their chosen fields and naturopaths are the specialists in the natural approach to inner health.

Treatments

In conjunction with regulating your inner health and external skin care you can look to the following skin treatments to help improve acne.

1. Chemical peels   Salicylic peels are key in helping to break up oil within your pores. For this ability we often choose a course of 4-6 at 2-4 weekly intervals to increase cell turnover and break up the oil plugging your pores. Used in conjunction with your cosmeceutical skin care improvement should be noticed upon completion.

2. Microdermabrasion – Is a great surface treatment to encourage cellular renewal of the skins surface. This will help to lighten and brighten the skin complexion over a period of time. Utilising this treatment with your active cosmeceuticals can assist in maintaining your overall skin health.

3. Laser –  Research is suggesting that light therapy is showing promising results in targeting P.acnes the bacteria responsible for the inflammatory response we see with the progression of congestion. For this to be effective P.acnes needs to be present and this isn’t always the case. Light therapy in particular LED, has other benefits so it will always be worthwhile and if it helps your acne that’s great. Keep in mind that results are still up for debate, however it does make us feel great, so give it a go, just don’t persist for years on end, take the next step below.

Reviewing your skin every step of the way, you make assessment as to whether you feel your skin care and skin treatments are working for you. Again sometimes we need something a little more and it is at this point around 6-12 months of trying active cosmeceuticals and medical grade skin treatments that we recommend you speak with your GP or Nurse Practitioner for referral to the ultimate skin specialists our DERMATOLOGISTS.
