If you live in Chiswick and are searching for acne treatments, we can help you. Our team of experts lead by dermatologists will help advise you on your acne and devise a treatment plan best suited to you.
What Causes Acne?
Acne can develop when our hair follicles get blocked. This happens when the sebaceous glands attached to the hair follicles produce too much sebum (a natural oily substance). In teenagers, this is caused by an increase in the hormone testosterone. The majority of adult acne occurs in women and can be caused by pregnancy, menstrual cycle, or polycystic ovaries.
How to Become Acne Free
There are various ways to get rid of acne. As well as washing daily with an antibacterial cleanser and using benzoyl peroxide cream, you can also try laser treatment. Regenlite laser treatment is an effective acne treatment which has been shown to help up to 87% of acne vulgaris cases. Each treatment only takes 10 to 15 minutes every four weeks, after which our experts will reassess your acne.
How to Get Rid of Acne Scars
A revolutionary new way to reduce acne scars is Dermaroller. This is a sterile roller with lots of tiny pins on it, which you gently roll across the skin. This causes tiny punctures in the skin, stimulating the skin to make its own collagen, a part of the skin which keeps it firm and elastic. By stimulating the skin to make more collagen, acne scars are visibly reduced.
