Acne FAQ's

What causes acne?

  1. Acne is a skin condition with many underlying factors, one being the over activity of a bacteria called P. acnes. This type of acne is often associated with inflamed cystic type spots. 
  2. Poor skin condition is the most common cause of adult acne; due to dehydration and accumulative damage
  3. Hormonal imbalances and a family history of acne are also strong influences

What treatments are available to treat acne?

  • Medical Grade Skin Care: a tailored home based skin plan can improve skin health, reduce inflammation and blackheads, and assist in skin healing.

  • Omnilux Blue: a medically proven light therapy where a special wavelength of blue light simulates your body to naturally recognize and destroy the acne-causing bacteria P. acnes (Research shows a 3 week course alternating with Omnilux Revive gave on average a 70% reduction in acne over 8-12 weeks)

  • Omnilux Revive: to reduce inflammation and improve healing and recovery (alternate with Omnilux Blue)

  • Natural Peels: to remove the dead layer of skin cells and improve normal oil flow, reducing blackheads and improving the health of your skin

Will I need an initial consultation? 

Yes, as with all of our services, you must have an initial-consultation before proceeding with your first treatment - regardless of if you have had this treatment elsewhere. This ensures you are fully educated and informed before proceeding with treatment. We are a best-practice clinic and consistently deliver optimal results by placing paramount importance on education and informed consent.
