Raising awareness amongst healthcare professionals?
You may have heard some debates recently in the news about the impact of acne and acne scarring on a person’s confidence. The debates centre around if we are doing enough for acne sufferers to help regain confidence and get their skin back on track. There have been complaints that the NHS doesn’t offer enough successful treatment options for teenage acne, or adult acne. There have also been reports of more severe side effects (although these are rare) from the use of Isotretinoin, commonly prescribed for acne treatment.
SkinBase can help
We want to help educate people on the accessible (and affordable) treatment options available. With the help of a qualified therapist, SkinBase IPL and MD treatments offer fantastic results on acne and acne scarring. These treatments can transform a client’s life and looks. Each person’s skin is assessed on a case by case basis but changes to both lifestyle and skincare routine as well as a course of treatments can see vast improvements to the condition of acne prone skin, dealing with any scarring and pigmentation issues too.
Let us clarify, however, for some acne sufferers Isotretinoin is absolutely the right treatment, but for others, a less drastic non-invasive treatment could resolve skin issues and help to rebalance the skin without the need for further treatment.
Not a lot of people know about the positive results that a course of SkinBase Microdermabrasion (MD) treatments can bring for acne and acne scarring. This is not just an anti-ageing facial. Many clients that have suffered from acne and acne scarring have had their lives turned around for the better after completing a course of MD facials. This 30-minute facial is fast, effective and pleasant to receive. The treatment is performed every 7-10 days and an improvement can be seen after each visit. Acne is improved and acne scarring fades, skin tone is more even and surface pigmentation diminished. A course of 6-20 treatments may be required for acne sufferers depending on the extent of the acne/acne scarring.
