Problem skin and acne in particular is one of the most common skin concerns we see amongst our clients. Affecting both young and old, it’s a debilitating skin condition that can significantly impact our self-confidence.
Genetics and hormones are the primary causes of acne which is the result of overactive sebaceous glands and excess skin cell production. At the same time the skin becomes thicker as cells no longer exfoliate. This causes congestion which is responsible for the redness and inflammation that most often progresses on to cysts, blackheads and whiteheads.
At Artisan, we take a three-step approach to combatting problem skin, which we tailor to our client’s individual needs and skin condition:
Diagnosing the type of acne you have and assessing its severity will help us determine the best treatment program for you. We will carry out a thorough consultation with you prior to your treatment to understand your concerns and assess your skin’s condition. We’ll then tailor a treatment plan that will ensure you achieve the best results. Because acne is a stubborn and persistent condition, the most effective way to tackle it is via a number of treatments.
2. Skin Needling
Skin needling is an innovative way to restore and rejuvenate your skin. It penetrates the top layers of the skin with microneedles to create pin-point injuries in the deeper layers. This then triggers the body’s natural healing response and stimulates new collagen and elastin. This reduces wrinkles, acne and acne scarring, and other imperfections, while improving skin texture and tone.
3. LED light therapy
LED light therapy is perfect for reducing skin inflammation. The treatment features a blue light which specifically kills acne bacteria. We then use the red light for promoting healing and stimulating collagen; and infrared for reducing inflammation and stimulating collagen. By using different combinations of the LED treatment heads, we can deliver effective treatment protocols for acne, skin rejuvenation and wrinkle reduction.
Finally, medical grade skincare is another essential tool for treating and managing acne. Our extensive range of products can give you the most effective outcome depending on your individual needs.
