Both the male and female get acne in fairly equal numbers. Younger males are more prone to severe, longer-lasting forms of the skin condition. Many females can suffer from "hormonal acne" — their outbreaks are tied to the hormonal changes related to their menstrual cycle. While hormonal acne typically starts between the ages of 20-25, it can strike teenagers as well. Hormonal acne is sometimes persistent in women over the age of 30.
Acne is a common, chronic skin condition caused by inflammation of oil-producing sebaceous glands. Acne problems usually begin between the ages of ten and thirteen, and can persist for five to ten years. Acne and pimple breakouts are very common on the face, but can also occur on the neck, chest, back, shoulders, upper arms and legs, as well as the scalp.
IPL Acne Treatment is an intensive pulse light system which is now revolutionizing the treatment of acne. The IPL Acne Treatment destroys the most common bacteria that cause acne — without drugs, without pain and without downtime.
Our Lynton Intense Pulsed Light system is one of the most powerful on the market and it releases strong yellow, green and red light that is emitted in a series of short pulses. The yellow/green light destroys the bacteria that live in the skin and cause acne, while the red light directly targets the overactive sebaceous glands that cause outbreaks of pustules. This targeted eating deep in the skin causes shrinkage of the inflamed sebaceous glands and helps to prevent over-production of excess sebum.
The IPL skin treatment offers a solution that:
Until now there were very few options, if any, for acne treatment. Clients often schedule appointments during their lunch hour and have the freedom to return to routine activities.
Almost everyone can be treated, apart from black skin type or tanned individuals( you need to stay out of the sun 4 wks before treatment). Pregnant women or people taking the acne treatment Roaccutane should not be treated.
This will be assessed at your free consultation. Each client is treated individually so a suitable bespoke package will be discussed to achieve the optimum results.
Cost will depend on the severity of the acne. We offer a free consultation and this will be assessed and discussed within that time. We aim to provide bespoke packages for each of our clients so optimum results are achieved.
The procedure is pain free and non invasive. We can use different settings to suit each client. We use cooling packs and cooling gels before and after treatment.

About thirty minutes in total, hence it has often been referred to as the lunch time peel.
Yes, work or other normal activities may be resumed immediately.
There is a mild degree of tingling or a slightly itchy sensation while the Anti Acne Peel is in contact with the skin. Upon neutralizing the peel, the skin feels fresh and smooth without discomfort.
You may go outside, but sunscreen must be worn for at least a few days after the peel as your skin will likely be a little more sensitive to sun exposure.
This is a difficult question to answer and depends on your skin and what you are looking to improve. Individually skin care programs will be designed to suit you by our highly trained professionals.

Instant Vascular results with our latest Radio Frequency technology!
Radio frequency treatments safely and effectively treat many different conditions such as Rosacea, Melasma, Thread Veins, Cherry Hemangiomas, Milia, Acne, Skin Tags, Sebaceous Hyperplasia, Frown Lines, Cholesterol Deposits, Pigmentation etc.
All the different conditions vary on how they respond to the treatment. Thread veins respond instantly but it may take several sessions to get all of them. With our treatment you are not going into the deeper layers of skin to remove tissue. You are simply touching the epidermis and allowing the current to attract to the water in the milia, sebaceous hyperplasia, cherry hemangioma or acne.
This dehydrates the problem area causing the body (over a few days) to exfoliate the dried skin. The down time is minimal and the treatment can be permanent. (please look at laser treatments for more information on some conditions).
What the client feels during the treatment is a slight heat sensation - depending on their pain tolerance. However sometimes we apply an OTC (over-the-counter) topical anaesthetic (depending on the area) before the treatment... (not to anaesthetise but to desensitise the area). It takes about 10-15 minutes to work.
