Acne

There are many different reasons as to why people suffer from Acne during their life time.  Not just teenagers, some adults can also suffer a form of Acne too, even when they have never had Acne before. Over the last 5 years we have seen many clients with Acne come through our door, and all leave with less frequent, smaller or no more breakouts.  Using Radio Frequency, alongside Cosmeceutical Skin Care Solutions, Chemical Peeling and eventually, where appropriate, the Dermapen™ for Micro Needling there is little residual scarring, and a much healthier, smoother skin.

Here are some examples of how our Image peels work.  These pictures belong to one of our clients and are her own photos.  This client has kindly allowed us to use them.

At My Body Essentials we now have 3 ways in which we can start treating Acne and give back confidence to our clients.

  • Radio Frequency
  • Cosmeceutical Skin Care Solutions
  • Chemical Peeling
  • For Existing Clients only, Acne spot treatment

All 3 in their own right will help to reduce and slow down Acne breakouts, used together as a bespoke treatment plan, the results are awesome.

So how do each of these work?

Radio Frequency (RF)

As discussed on our Radio Frequency page, (RF) rejuvenates skin by creating a gentle heat, shrinking open pores, encouraging collagen and fibroblasts to renew and stimulating your lymphatic system to drain toxins, in turn this reduces poor skin tone, redness and smooths the deep scarring texture often left following multiple breakouts.   This rejuvenation effects the frequency of breakouts and the size of your spots.

Here is what the New England Journal of Medicine say about RF

Cosmeceutical Skin Care Solutions

“Over the Counter” products are licensed to deal only with your surface dead skin cells.  Cosmeceutical Skin Care is licensed to deal with and actually improves your deeper live skin cells.  We use Image Skin Care products.  The beauty of Image Skin Care is that their whole range can be mixed and matched in order to truly suit each and every individual.  Along with masks that feed and exfoliate the skin, the Clear Cell Salicylic Gel Cleanser is a great start.  A good SPF 30+ moisturiser is essential, for acne prone skin we recommend Prevention+ Matte. 

Chemical Peeling

Using the Image Skin Care I Peel range we have 2 levels available help to reduce Acne.  These are the Acne Lift Peel (Level 1) and the Beta Lift Peel (Level 2).  The Acne Lift will treat Acne grades 1 and 2, the Beta Lift treats the more advanced Acne grades 3 and 4.  We always advise at least one Acne Level 1 before receiving the Beta Lift Level 2 peel. These solutions target sebum and reduce redness, scarring, and smooths the skin.

Acne Lift Peel

The Acne Lift is a blend of AHA and BHA with anti-inflammatory agents to effectively treat all grades of acne.

Beta Lift Peel

This powerful non-blended salicylic acid treatment quickly and effectively targets moderate to severe acne.

Once the Acne breakouts are under control the use of Lightening Lift and Wrinkle Lift peels are used up to and/or including a Level 3 Perfection Lift depending on an individuals requirements.

Dermapen™ Micro Needling

Once the Acne breakouts are under control the use of the Dermapen™ for Micro Needling skin smoothing can be used depending on each individual’s requirements.
