Information on Treatments for Acne

It is commonly believed that, in order to get the better of spots and acne breakouts, it is necessary to use strong, alcohol laden products to dry the skin out. Unfortunately, these same products can often make the situation progressively worse by stripping the skin of its natural oils and encouraging the sebum glands to work even harder to replace it. This, increased production of sebum provides the perfect environment for further bacterial growth.

At The Bournemouth Laser and Skincare Clinic, we believe in a gentler approach using a variety of treatment creams and lotions, non-laser treatments and peels.

Our products consist of Vitamin A based creams and gels, to reduce sebum production. We also have excellent Vitamin C based products to deal with the excess pigment production that occurs following breakouts in people as well as products containing Salicylic acid, Hyaluronic acid to hydrate the skin and Glycolic Acid which is the simplest of all the Alpha Hydroxy Acids. Glycolic Acid is believed to have the greatest penetration potential due to its small molecular size. As a result, Glycolic Acid is believed to provide the greatest benefits for skin care in comparison to other cosmetically used AHAs (lactic, malic, citric, tartaric, etc).

We begin with a consultation during which we look at the current skin management regime, including all the products that the client is using. Whilst some products may be good for continued use, it is not unusual to discover that some products are not appropriate, or could be replaced with something much milder and more "skin-friendly".

The client's full medical history is taken and an examination of the skin carried out, to assess the current situation. If the client has a particularly sensitive skin, we may try some products on the skin at this stage, to test for skin reaction, whilst we complete the consultation process.

We then inform the client about the products and treatments which would be of benefit. These might be a mixture of a home care regime and in-clinic procedures. The treatment regime is always individualised for each client; what is perfect for one client with acne might be unsuitable for another.

Full costing for all products, non-laser and laser treatments are explained during the consultation and the client is under no pressure to make any decisions at the time; we always encourage people to go away and consider the information before embarking on any course of treatment.
