Self-conscious about Acne or Scarring?
Acne or pimples are extremely pesky problems which seem to affect our appearance at the most inconvenient times!
If you suffer from adult acne, or if you are an adolescent going through hormonal changes then you will most likely feel self-conscious about the appearance and texture of your skin. As our body goes through hormonal changes our skin and pores seem to suffer. No matter whether you’re an adult or a teen this hard-to-hide condition can be extremely damaging to your self-esteem. In order to help you treat and avoid this condition Macquarie Cosmetic Medicine in Sydney can provide skin treatments to minimise pores and improve the health of your skin from beneath the surface.
What causes adult acne?
Adult acne is similar to acne during adolescence as it is still caused by excess oil, naturally large pores or bacteria on the skin. As you’ve grown up you may have noticed that you generally tend to get more blackheads, or you may have noticed pimples seem to strike in a ‘T’ formation on your face – which is extremely common. Some women also report an outbreak in their skin after they have either come off or start taking the pill. This can occur due to the skin adjusting to the hormone changes that the pill induces.
Everyone’s skin is different. However, Macquarie Cosmetic Medicine provides the best cosmetic treatments in Sydney and therefore can help you treat adult acne with a few simple procedures.
These procedures include:
- Karatolytic creams and lotions
Microdermabrasion can treat a number of conditions
Microdermabrasion is a treatment that can help alleviate signs of pigmentation, scarring, fine lines, enlarged pores and general signs of aging. Many people find this treatment gives their skin a youthful luminance and it is the perfect treatment to receive in between cosmetic laser therapy treatments such as the Fraxel laser.
Chemical Peels are perfect for reversing sun damage
Chemical peels involve using a light chemical application to stimulate the skin and revitalise the appearance and texture. Here at Macquarie Cosmetic Medicine in Sydney we use a range of chemical solutions which are customised depending on your skin requirements. The process of a skin peel normally takes eight days from when the first solution is applied. From this primary application the skin will begin to peel and renew itself, resulting in a luminescent and youthful glow.
Laser treatments are a non-invasive solution to textural and appearance problems
If you’ve been wanting to reclaim the smoothness and appearance of your skin then our cosmetic laser treatments would be perfect for you. Laser treatments can actually be combined with chemical peels for a more beautiful visage with better clarity and less appearance of imperfections such as acne. Laser treatment can also be used to remove scars, eliminate the appearance of veins, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and even remove tattoos!
In order to finish off your anti-acne treatment one of our doctors or clinicians may recommend Karatolytic creams. Karatolytic creams are specifically designed to emulsify lesions such as warts and acne and can be used in accordance with our treatments and cosmetic medical knowledge to treat your acne.
