Specialist Perspective on Acne Solutions
The Acne Solutions Clinic is an ideal setup for patients who have mild outbreaks of acne and would like our specialist tips on how to care for their skin. Developing a very simple, gentle, but effective skin care program forms the basis of good skin. Additionally the right make up can make a huge difference. The trick is to balance good coverage and not block the pores. As part to the assessment, I end the consultation with a simple, painless chemical peel. I either use a glycolic peel, or if there are lots of clogged pores or blackheads, I use a salicylic acid peel. In some cases of acne, a little change can make all the difference.
This clinic is suited for patients who would like to undertake acne treatments without prescription medications, or patients who exhibit mild acne. Often a simple change of product, make up and simple chemical peels can reduce annoying breakouts without the need to see a Dermatologist.
The Acne Solutions Clinic give patients rapid access to see an acne specialist nurse who will discuss all aspects of your skin care, make up, and products. Patients will also receive a complimentary skin revitalizing chemical peel.
Assessing your acne and product review takes time. Our nurses will carefully examine your skin and determine the type of acne you have, and discuss any potential triggers or flare factors.
We will advise you on simple, gentle skin care, and will discuss the make up best suited for your skin type. The aim of this Clinic is to teach you correct methods to look after your skin, minimise acne breakouts and point you into the right direction in regards to achieving acne free skin.
As part of the Acne Solutions Clinic assessment we will provide you with a complimentary chemical peel, best suited for your skin and acne type. Chemical peels have little, if any downtime.
This is a Specialist Nurse led clinic for patients who suffer from mild to moderate acne, who often will benefit from advice on correct skin care and products. As part of our initial assessment we provide each patient with a complimentary chemical peel.
The Acne Solutions Clinic also offers the following services without the need to see a Dermatologist-
Chemical peels are a great method to unblock pores and refine your skin with little or no downtime. Ideal for blackheads
Omnilux Blue or Red light phototherapy can temporarily reduce outbreaks. A great non-medical treatment, especially useful in pregnant or breastfeeding women.
Our signature 8 week program for mild acne- combines LED phototherapy with a customised skin peel regime to achieve clearer more radiant skin, great for blackheads and unclogging pores.
Entry-level non laser Fractional Skin Resurfacing for acne scarring can be treated with the very latest Medical Grade DERMAPEN. Treatments start from only $240.
If your acne does not improve, or if you exhibit scarring, you may elect to see a dermatologist for further management. Specialist Dermatologists can tailor a solution based upon your acne, your previous acne treatments and most importantly your lifestyle.
A referral is required to see a Consultant Dermatologist - this can be obtained via a GP, or we can arrange a referral for you. Our nurses and staff will guide you through this process.
Radiofrequency is a safe and effective method of treating mild and early acne scars. Rolling, atrophic, and mixed scars respond best. This is a non-laser method of scar remodelling and works by gently heating and breaking down collagen scars. 4-6 treatments are ideal for best results.
Dermapen Fractional Resurfacing for acne scars
Dermapen resurfacing is a safe, non- laser method of skin resurfacing. It is ideal for rolling and atrophic scars. Skin needling is not as effective as Fractional Laser Resurfacing, however Dermapen treatments start at only $240 per session- a fraction of Fraxel Lasers. Dermapen provides entry level scar remodelling affordable to all patients.
IMPORTANT: If you have moderate to severe acne scarring, our Consultant Dermatologists can utilise a variety of treatments such as TCA Cross, Fraxel Laser, or other treatments to help remove scars. High-end procedures such as laser treatments and TCA Cross are not conducted via the Acne Solutions Clinic, referral to a Consultant will be advisable as some procedures are partially claimable via Medicare. Regardless of the severity of your acne scars, our Specialists will find an effective solution for your acne scars.
