Achieve clearer, healthier, acne-free skin.
At Illuminate we have a range of treatments that will help you regain control over your acne inflicted skin.
What causes Acne?
The causes of acne are multi-factorial and different for each person. The main contributing factor to acne is excess oil/sebum production, which is caused by hormonal influences on sebaceous glands. The increase of oil/sebum production leads to dead skin cells which physically block pores, which in turn causes blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, and deeper lumps called cysts or nodules.
What are the treatment options?
Even though we cannot completely cure your acne, our treatments will dramatically improve your facial appearance by preventing new spots forming, improving those already present and preventing scarring*.
Come meet the Illuminate team
Our acne management program consists of advising you on the correct treatment that will help prevent further breakouts and leave your skin healthy, bright and refreshed. We create a personalised treatment plan for each patient to help treat acne in the most effective way.
If your acne condition is limited mainly to whiteheads and blackheads, you probably have mild acne, especially if the lesions do not cover large areas of the face or body. We will suggest use of a gentle cleanser and mild moisturiser. Keep cosmetic use to a minimum and avoid oil-based cosmetics, which may clog the pores.
Microdermabrasion and Chemical Peels
These treatments are the most effective for acne and unblocks the hair follicles whilst also preventing future follicles from blocking. Microdermabrasion is a well-established method for skin resurfacing and rejuvenation. It is a safe, controlled and painless procedure where a stream of micro-crystals are delivered onto the skin’s surface, gently exfoliating your skin. This strips away the dead and flaking skin cells on the epidermis leaving new and healthy cells on the surface while stimulating the production of collagen.
Moderate to Severe Acne
If you have large, deep, solid and painful lumps or cysts under your skin, you may have moderate to severe acne. For patients with moderate to severe acne, we suggest IPL Laser treatment as the most effective procedure*.
