Active Acne/Acne Scarring
Acne is a skin condition that has both physical and psychological affects. It can greatly decrease one’s self-image and confidence. It is an inflammatory condition of the oil producing sebaceous glands. If left untreated, acne can be quite painful and cause scar formation and skin discolouration (post-inflammatory pigmentation).
It is estimated that acne afflicts over 100 million persons worldwide. Approximately 30% of all individuals between the ages of 15 and 44 have active acne lesions at any given time. Traditional acne treatments, which include topical applications and oral medications, are expensive and known to have numerous side effects.
We offer several options for the treatment of Acne. Therefore an individualized plan dependent on several factors (severity and type of acne, medical history, skin type and patient’s lifestyle) will be developed by our team of skin care professionals. This plan may include chemical peels, microdermabrasion, SilkPeel Dermalinfusion, IPL Laser therapy, medical grade skin care products or any combination of those treatments. During your complementary consultation your options will be discussed with you in detail.
