Cystic Acne Treatment Plan
Cystic acne happens when the infection goes deep into the skin and a big, red, tender bump develops under the dermis that is full of pus. If a cyst bursts, the infection can spread, causing more breakouts.
Here is how we treat cystic acne without the use of traditional medications
- First we use laser LHE to dramatically reduce Cystic Acne we use Laser LHE. A series of 8 treatments is required.*
- Later when the skin is less infected Acne Facials are performed to remove the sebum from the pores . When pores are empty bacteria has no place to multiply and the acne disappears.*
- To maintain good skin High Frequency treatments might be needed once or twice a week for some period of time.*
LHE ("Laser") Therapy
We are using with unique LHE Light and Heat technology to effectively treat acne.
This new generation of acne treatments technology effectively treats acne with minimal discomfort*. Using a unique combination of light and heat, Acne Clearance System optimizes the oxygen effect and quickly destroys Propionibacterium acne.
One treatment with LHE takes about 15 minutes and results in the reduction of bacteria and inflammation. Eight treatments can greatly reduce acne (individual results may vary). LHE is strongly recommended to treat severe and cystic acne, and very beneficial in treating less extreme forms of acne. A course of 8 treatments is required and is to be done twice a week.
Acne Facials with Extraction
Acne facials are designed to purify the skin and reduce excess oil secretion.
Treatment includes manual extraction of blackheads, milia and pustules. Proper removal of these lesions results in clearer, healthier skin with decreased chance of inflammation and bacterial spreading. Individually chosen masks and antibacterial ozone therapy are also applied.
Antibacterial Ozone Therapy
To reduce P.acne bacteria we are using High Frequency machine with ozone-producing current which speeds up the healing process and prevents new break-outs. A glass electrode is gently moved on top of your skin (either face, or back or chest), where the acne occur. You will feel a little “sparkle”, smell ozone and feel the warmth. This treatment is done after extractions and between Acne Facials. It is also a great “emergency” treatment if the pimple needs to be heal very quickly. Faster the acne heals less skin discolouration appears, so it also a great prevention tool to avoid scarring.*
Solux Light Therapy
Penetration of gentle blue light helps relieve irritation of the skin, reduces the inflammation, redness and sensitivity of the skin. To achieve results at least 10 treatments are necessary.*
Glycolic Acid Treatment
This treatment is extremely effective in reducing acne scars, minimizing size of the pores and reducing pigmentation spots.
It has to be done on healthy skin, where there is no longer infected acne. Alpha Hydroxy Acids work as exfoliants by speeding up the skin’s natural shedding process. AHA ( we use Glycolic Acid) improves skin texture and tone, helps manage oily and acne skin, unclogs pores, reduces skin discolouration . We are using 30% glycolic acid and within each visit we increase the time of application making sure that we achieve desired results without jeopardizing the health of your skin.
It is common to experience some tingling during the application and slight dryness and flakiness of the skin while using AHA, As new, healthier skin cells come to the surface, the flakiness will be replaced with radiant new skin. The texture will feel softer. The best results come with the course of 10 treatments done usually 1 week apart.*
