Acne therapy

Acne therapy

The skin therapist treats all types of acne and acne scars, often in conjunction with the treatment provided by the dermatologist. The skin therapist also provides advice on self-care and proper acne treatment. What can the skin therapist do for you?

  • Manual cleaning of the skin: removing blackheads and pimples and, if necessary, application of a green clay mask to relax the skin;
  • Deep cleansing of the skin with peeling; mechanical exfoliation (exfoliation, microdermabrasion), chemical peel (containing glycolic acid, fruit acid and trichloroacetic acid). The aim is to remove dead skin cells that block the pores. Regular exfoliation of the skin prevents the occurrence blackheads, restores normal sebum flow, and stimulates skin cell renewal;
  • Advice on skin care, product use, etc.

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a mechanical form of exfoliation used to treat blemishes, enlarged pores, pigment spots, scars, residual acne and fine lines. Dermabrasion removes dead skin cells layer by layer, revealing a new, soft, smooth and glowing skin. This treatment stimulates the skin to generate new cells, increases the production of collagen and elastin (in the dermis), and also considerably improves the blood circulation in the skin.

After treatment, the skin may be slightly red and sensitive. You are advised not to expose your skin to the sun without sunscreen during the first two weeks after treatment.

Regular peeling prevents the occurrence blackheads, restores normal sebum flow, and stimulates skin cell renewal. Chemical peels consist of a combination of different ingredients, including acids, each with its own characteristic properties.
By using the right combination of ingredients, specific skin problems can treated effectively, efficiently and safely. As in microdermabrasion, the skin may be slightly red and sensitive after treatment.
You are advised not to expose your skin to the sun without sunscreen during the first two weeks after treatment.
