A COMPREHENSIVE APPROACH TO THE TREATMENT OF ACNE AND SCARRING AT MORETON AESTHETICS


Acne. Not just something that happens to teens.

Acne can have a massive effect on our self-esteem. Let’s find out why it happens and what we can do to reduce it.


GET YOUR GLOW BACK.


Let’s look at the causes of acne, effective home skin careclinic treatments, and acne scarring.


UNDERSTANDING THE CAUSES OF ACNE


In the simplest terms, acne is what happens when a hair follicle gets blocked.

Acne is a multifaceted condition, influenced by various factors.

The most obvious are hormones, for example in teenagers, and hormonal changes over a women’s monthly cycle. Some women may also experience acne in pregnancy. Acne can also have a familial tendency.

Other causes can be linked to use of some cosmetic products, stress, medication, smoking and diet.

 

At Moreton Aesthetics, I go beyond surface-level treatments, delving into the root causes of skin conditions. From hormonal imbalances to lifestyle triggers, my approach is personalised to address your unique concerns.


WHERE CAN YOU GET ACNE?


We usually associate acne with faces. In fact, acne can occur anywhere on the body, including the chest and back.


TYPES OF ACNE


  • Blackheads – these are black because of oxidation of a substance called melanin.

  • Whiteheads – may be firmer than blackheads.

  • Papules – small, tender red bumps.

  • Pustules – like papules, but with a white centre due to a build-up of pus.

  • Nodules – large hard lumps beneath the surface which can be painful.

  • Cysts – a severe type of acne; large pus-filled lumps which have a high risk of scarring.


LIFESTYLE CHANGES FOR ACNE: EMPOWERING YOUR SKIN JOURNEY


In addition to advanced clinic treatments, I advocate for holistic lifestyle changes that complement my clinical approach. From dietary modifications to stress management, small adjustments can significantly impact acne outcomes.

EFFECTIVE HOME SKINCARE


There is no substitute for a good home skincare routine.

You will hear many ingredients batted around, including azaelic acid, retinoids (think retinol, tretinoin, isotretinoin) and benzyl peroxide, to name a few.


It is important to understand what will work for you and this is where the consultation appointment comes in, so together we can formulate a treatment plan that enhances your clinic treatments.

ADVANCED TREATMENTS TAILORED TO YOU


Whilst it may be really tempting to pick the spots, this can increase the risk of scarring.

Ditch sunbeds (and the risk of skin cancer!) and look towards LED therapy instead.


LED THERAPY FOR ACNE

Embrace the healing power of light with advanced LED therapy, using the DermaLux FledMD. Clinically proven to reduce inflammation and promote skin rejuvenation, this non-invasive treatment is an integral part of our comprehensive acne care.


CHEMICAL PEELS FOR ACNE

Uncover a revitalised complexion with customised chemical peels. Targeting acne-prone skin, these peels exfoliate, renew, and stimulate collagen production, addressing both current breakouts and the aftermath of acne.


MICRONEEDLING TO REDUCE THE APPEARANCE OF SCARS

For microneedling, I use the award-winning SkinPen Precision device, which is clinically proven to reduce scarring, including those left by acne.
