What is acne?
Acne is caused when tiny holes in the skin, known as hair follicles, become blocked. If the plugged follicle is close to the surface of the skin, it bulges outwards, creating a whitehead. Alternatively, the plugged follicle can be open to the skin, creating a blackhead.
The normal and harmless bacteria that lives on the surface of our skin can then contaminate and infect the blocked follicles which can in turn cause papules, pustules, nodules or cysts.
How can Amanda Pierce Aesthetics help?
Whilst acne tends to be associated with teenagers, it can strike at any age and lots of people suffer with adult acne. 80% of these sufferers are females- which is because the main trigger for acne is hormones. Any changes in hormones such as pregnancy, periods and hormone-disorders can cause an outbreak.
Here at Amanda Pierce Aesthetics, we have derived an intensive 8 week course to fight those breakouts. By combining DermaLux LED Photo Therapy, Easy Phytic Peels and a tailored at-home skincare kit we are confident that you won’t be disappointed in the results.
How It Works
- DermaLux LED Photo Therapy targets the bacteria that causes acne
- Easy Phytic Peels contain Glycolic Acid to help clear acne
- Tailored at-home skincare pack to suit your skin and fight acne
- In-clinic treatments once a week for the 8 week period
- No downtime
We have derived our intensive acne course in such a way that it not only treats the acne breakouts you currently have, but also helps prevent future ones from happening.
You will come into our clinic first for a consultation. We will discuss with you all of your skincare concerns and ensure that this treatment course is going to be the best option for you. We will then take into account a range of factors about your skin and put together a home-care kit that is personalised to you-showing you all the products and explaining how to use them.
For your first treatment, you will come along and have an Easy Phytic Peel followed by a session of DermaLux LED Light Therapy. The peel should not be washed off afterwards as it needs to absorb into the skin. There is no down-time to this peel. You will then repeat this every 2 weeks.
The weeks in-between your peel treatment, you will come along for a session of the DermaLux LED Light Therapy and it also gives you a chance to let us know how you’re getting on with the course. We even have cosy blankets to keep you warm during your treatment.
This will continue over a period of 8 weeks and you will be using your home-kit alongside this for the best results.
By the end of the 8 weeks you should have smoother, clearer and happier skin. You can then do maintenance treatments to keep on top of your skin or if your acne is severe you may want to consider another full course.
