Find your confidence in clearer, brighter skin with Arasys Acne treatments. Treating acne is often a long journey that can take its toll, but our aim is to get you to a place where you’re happy with the way your skin looks.
Acne is caused by the body’s increased production of the hormone androgen (produced by both men and women) which stimulate the sebaceous glands to produce more oil. The intense pulsed light system releases carefully filtered light that is emitted in a series of short pulses. The light destroys the bacteria that live on the skin and cause acne and directly targets the overactive sebaceous glands that cause outbreaks of pustules. This results in the shrinkage of the inflamed sebaceous glands thus preventing over production of excess sebum.
You may experience a warming sensation, but overall there is no discomfort experienced, apart from some redness on the face following a treatment. In order to establish the amount of treatments required a consultation will be necessary. With all our procedures a thorough consultation is required to identify your expectations and provide you with a complete explanation of the treatment process and outcome.
A medical history is taken to confirm suitability for treatment and if you wish to proceed a written informed consent is obtained. Prior to undergoing any treatment a test patch is performed which takes a few minutes. This patch test is to confirm that there will not be any skin reaction to the treatment.
Our acne treatments usually works well in conjunction with our medical microdermabrasion. This will be discussed at your consultation.
