Which Treatment is best for Acne?

Aug 21, 2023

Acne is a very common skin condition that most people are affected by at some point in their lives. Acne isn’t exclusively a teen problem or for those with excessively oily skins. Sadly, adults are presented with acne as well. In fact, mature skins can often be dry and sensitive whilst also suffering acne breakouts. 

What causes pimples on the face?

Acne can appear on the face and body and is caused when the tiny holes on the surface of the skin become blocked by dirt, oil and other impurities, which can then become infected by normally harmless bacteria living on the surface of your skin. It’s very important to have a routine of cleansing your face twice a day, using exfoliation, drinking water, avoiding sugary foods etc. However, we do need to be aware sometimes things such as hormonal changes or allergies may be the cause of an acne breakout. 

What is the fastest way to cure acne?

Acne and acne scarring is completely debilitating for some, however with the right guidance and tailored treatment plans that we can create especially for you, there is hope for improved skin. Unfortunately, investing in your skin is a journey and not a quick fix. It may involve a structured and tailored skincare regime using medical grade products and also in clinic treatments. In some cases, we may assess your skin and then advise you to make a dermatologist appointment if we feel medication such as antibiotics etc would be better suited to clear your skin. 

What are the top 3 best acne treatments?

At Inside Aesthetics we do believe in having a consultation with our skin specialist so we can provide you with a bespoke treatment plan. However, in our experience below are some treatments that could help treat acne: 

  • Chemical Peel:  At Inside Aesthetics we provide a range of medium depth and light depth chemical peels. We offer The Perfect Peel, VI Peel, Sacalyic and Mandelic peels and depending on your skin type, concern, lifestyle etc will allow us to decide which peel is most suitable for you. Chemical peels effectively exfoliate away the top layer of dead, dull skin and help to treat acne scarring, but they also help to kill skin bacteria therefore helping the acne breakouts.
  • Microneedling/Morpheus 8: are needling treatments that can be used once the active acne has been cleared. These treatments help acne scarring by tiny needles making small contact points in the skin which encourages the body to create a healing response and renew the skin. As your skin repairs, the production of collagen and elastin is triggered to give a plumping effect, helping acne scarring, ageing and wrinkles.
  • Medical Grade Skincare: at Inside Aesthetics we recommend ZO medical grade skincare. If you are suffering with acne we would offer a comprehensive skin consultation to provide you with products such as oil control pads, complexion mask, benzoyl peroxide, tretinoin etc. It is important to see a professional skincare specialist so they can continuously give advice and support you throughout your journey.
