ACNE TREATMENTS

How can acne treatments help me?

Although acne is a common skin condition that affects around 20 percent of young people, both boys & girls (adults and teens) can find the situation distressing. Depending on the severity of the acne, it may even leave you feeling self-conscious. As a result, you might choose to seek acne treatment at Vysana.

Acne treatments in the UK vary between injectable therapies, interventions such as micro-needling, skin-resurfacing and chemical skin peels. To ensure each patient remains safe, it’s essential to choose a treatment that’s appropriate for them. As such, patients who want to treat their acne with a cosmetic intervention should seek advice from a medical doctor with aesthetic training.

YOUR SKINCARE CONSULTATION

In some instances, medical grade skin care will resolve acne. As a medical doctor with additional training in Aesthetic Medicine, Dr Dhesi works with world-renowned skin care brands. Such brands include Alumier, Neostrata and Obagi.

Skin care consultations involve assessing the reasons behind a patient’s acne. While some may have underlying hormonal factors, others find their genes play a role. In some cases, men and women produce excessive amounts of androgens later in life; this leads to adult acne.

Depending on the reason for a patient’s acne, Dr Dhesi can recommend a bespoke skin care and supplement plan that maximises their potential for reducing it without any other interventions. Some ways to achieve this include:

Administering products with the right balance of active ingredients for the patient’s skin

Recommending acne treatment kits that the patient self-administers
Tailoring a supplement and skincare plan so that it matches the patient’s skin type; for example, oily vs dry

In some cases, using skin care to tackle acne vulgaris is not enough. If a patient is experiencing concerns such as scarring, they may start additional therapies.

WHICH ACNE TREATMENTS ARE AVAILABLE?

The Vysana team is skilled in delivering acne treatments in the UK that tackle the patient’s unique needs. As no two causes of acne are the same, establishing a bespoke package is essential for reducing acne vulgaris and its side effects.

  • CHEMICAL SKIN PEELS FOR ACNE - Micro-needling for acne involves using a device that features fine needles to make small puncture wounds in the skin. The puncture wounds are not visible, but they do encourage the body to initiate healing processes that can treat acne.

    When a qualified professional uses micro-needling for acne, they encourage collagen production in the skin’s surface and deeper layers. As well as improving the skin’s surface, this also results in the production of more Vitamin A. Vitamin A is a crucial component in combating the effects and causes of acne.

    In addition to addressing acne during a flare up, it is also possible to use micro-needling to treat acne scars. Over the course of several sessions, Derma needling draws collagen to the skin’s surface and encourages fresh cells to grow. As a result, acne scars look less prominent.

  • MESOTHERAPY AND DERMA NEEDLING FOR ACNE Using a chemical skin peel to treat acne comes with multiple benefits. They include:

    *Reducing the appearance of blemishes and scars
    *Evening the skin’s tone
    *Boosting the skin’s complexion
    *Achieving a more youthful look

  • DERMAL FILLERS FOR ACNE SCARRING - Depending on the nature of the scarring, using dermal fillers for acne scarring is very useful. Injecting dermal fillers beneath the epidermis where scarring occurs causes the skin to plump. When the skin plumps, it becomes more even, making it a useful acne treatment for scarring.

    Another approach involves injecting a dermal filler directly into the scar itself. While this is a refined technique, it has a similar effect on the method above.

    To see the full benefits of dermal fillers for acne scarring, most patients need more than one treatment.

Acne Peels

Dealing with acne can be a challenging experience, affecting not only your skin but also your self-confidence and daily life. If you're tired of using makeup to hide your spots and feeling unsatisfied with the results of over-the-counter acne treatments, a skin peel may be just what you need.

Our years of experience have led us to understand how persistent and recurrent mild to moderate acne can affect you. Not wanting to socialise, worrying about your skin everyday, experiencing the pain and discomfort almost every month when your skin flares up and then waiting for the acne marks to disappear before they possibly return again.

At Vysana Clinic, we understand the physical and emotional impact of acne on our patients, and we're committed to helping you find a solution.

Our expert, Dr Dhesi, will assess your skin and recommend a bespoke treatment plan that may include a course of chemical peels and skincare products from Get Harley.

What is a chemical peel, and how does it help with acne?

A chemical peel is a cosmetic treatment that uses non-toxic acids like lactic, salicylic, and glycolic acid to exfoliate and remove dead skin cells, oil, and other debris that can aggravate acne. By removing the top layer of skin, chemical peels reveal a smoother, fresher, and clearer complexion.

They also offer several benefits for acne-prone and acne-scarred skin, such as improving texture and skin tone, lightening dark spots, and preventing future breakouts by unclogging pores.

Which types of chemical peels are good for acne?

At Vysana Clinic, we offer several types of chemical peels that are effective in treating acne:
  • Glycolic Peel: This peel uses an alpha-hydroxy-acid derived from sugarcane to exfoliate the skin and reveal smoother skin.
  • TCA Peel: A medium-depth peel that targets deeper layers of the skin and is ideal for treating acne scars.
  • Salicylic Peel: This peel deeply cleanses the pores, reduces redness and swelling, and improves the appearance of acne scars.
During your consultation, Dr Dhesi and his team will assess your skin and recommend the most appropriate peel for your acne type and severity. He may also suggest combining the peel with other treatments.

Vysana is a medical clinic and this means that we can combine medical and prescription treatments to provide for optimal results. At Vysana we also have access to private referral pathways which means that if you need to see a dermatologist for prescription treatments that require hospital management we can confidently refer you and work alongside our consultant colleagues.

Transform your skin and regain your confidence with Vysana Clinic and Dr Dhesi.
