Acne is one of the most common skin conditions in humans. Our skin therapists will take a look at the personal situation of the patient during the intake. In that way a fitting solution can be found for the acne treatment. Our skin therapists work with the Sebacia Acne treatment and regular acne therapy.
Why an acne treatment?
There is no standard treatment for acne. Acne is a condition that takes a custom plan. Acne that consists mostly out of blackheads, asks for a different approach then acne that consist out of deep infections. The skin therapist will discuss with you what the best approach is for your situation. Acne often does not go away by itself and patient can experience this as such a problem that effects their quality of life.
Acné Sebacia laser treatment with golden micro particles.
Overactive sebacious glands is often a problem that results in infections. The Acné Sebacia treatment is a relatively new method from the united states that usesselective photothermolysis with golden micro particles. The treatment in short: golden microparticles are massaged into the skin by way of ultrasound, after which immediate lasering follows. The laserlight guides the particles towards the sebacious glands. The golden microparticles are light sensitive and end up in the sebacious glands.
How does it work?
The golden micro particles heat the sebacious glands, which results in the reduction of activity by the sebacious glands. With acne a common cause is the hyper activity of the sebacious glands, which results in serious infections. Apart from that, the heat of the laser will kill bacteria that result in acne vulgaris. The beautifull part of this treatment is that on average it only takes 3 treatments with an interval of more or less a week. That is significantly less than a normal acne treatment trajectory, which takes six or more months on average. This method is applicable both to light and dark skin types.
The treatment has been performed for a longer amount of time in the United States, and is FDA approved. Sebacia has started in Europe in 2019, In England, The Netherlands, Germany and Poland.
Regular acné treatment
In regular acne treatments, our skin therapists usually combine in-depth cleansing with chemical peelings. The in-depth cleaning of the skin consists of the removal of blackheads, accumulation of sebum, millia and zits. A small needle can be used to make tiny perforations in the skin. This way the sebum can be easily removed from the skin. The goal of the treatment is to prevent infections and to reduce scar forming. Because of the resilience of acne, an in depth cleaning can be combined with a treatment performed by a dermatologist. For example using the right medications like certain antibiotics. After an in depth treatment, a peeling is often applied. We use chemical peeling of Toskani and Eneomey:
Salisylic acid peeling of 10%-20%-30% concentrations. This peeling has an anti-bacterial and anti-infectional function and reduces sebum production.
Glycolic acid peeling in 10%-20%-30%-50%-70% concentrations. This peeling has an anti-bacterial and anti-infectional function and reduces sebum production.
Mandalic peeling in 30% concentration. This peeling stimulates the formation of collagen.
Lactic acid peeling in 30% - 40% - 50% concentrations. This peeling is suitable for a sensitive to dry skin and works well with hyper pigmentation.
Purifying peeling. This peeling contains among other things salisylic and azelaic acid. This peeling regulates sebum productions and size of the pores.
Lumilight peeling. This peeling contains among other things glycolic, kojic and mandelic acid. This peeling mostly influences the hyper pigmentation that can develop after infections in the skin.
Rejuv peeling. This peeling contains among other things glycolic acid and retinol. This combination of acids makes this peeling suitable against acne scarring, wrinkles and skin aging.
