Enjoy a clearer complexion with sk:n’s 360° approach to fighting acne
28th January 2014
Approximately 80 per cent of people between the ages of 11 and 30 are affected by acne.1
The condition most commonly appears during puberty and decreases overtime, however sometimes it can carry on long into adulthood. At any age acne can cause great distress, trauma and anxiety. If left untreated it can have a serious effect on self-esteem and can even lead to depression.
Acne sufferers are sensitive to certain hormones that cause increased oil production and a higher turnover of skin cells, leading to changes in bacteria and ultimately to outbreaks. While there is no cure for acne, treatments are available to help reduce outbreaks and their severity.
Whist there are a wide range of treatment options available to help deal with acne, from topical creams to prescription medication, it can be difficult to navigate your way through the endless sea of product and information. If you don’t want to be scrolling the internet for hours for the right advice or be overwhelmed at the beauty counter, there is a ‘third space’ where you can find a full range of clinically-proven solutions and expert advice all under the one roof. sk:n is home to the UK’s leading dermatologists, who can offer prescription medication, state-of-the-art technology and effective at-home products to help guide you to healthier, clearer skin.
sk:n clinics offer the most advanced treatments available in the UK for active acne. The 360° approach begins with an in-depth consultation with a qualified dermatologist who will prescribe a tailored treatment plan for individual skin needs. sk:n offer a wide range of acne treatment options including:
- Isolaz®: The world’s first aesthetic technology that combines broadband light with pore-purifying technology to deliver effective results. Isolaz® has been shown to deliver a 90 per cent total clearance rate for significantly clearer skin. A cleansing vacuum helps to extract blackheads and excess oil from deep within pores. Meanwhile, the innovative broadband light helps to thermally destroy acne-causing bacteria and reduce facial redness. Isolaz® is an easy and painless way to deal with acne. In a recent clinical study, 100 per cent of patients reported no pain during the treatment and described the sensation as being similar to that of a warm massage. Skin feels healthier and more radiant after just a few sessions
- Anti-blemish range: sk:n’s range of advanced anti-blemish products have been designed by a team of medical experts, including consultant dermatologists, and are clinically proven to reduce the effects of acne. The range helps to treat every factor that can contribute to oily, acne-prone skin. The products contain proven ingredients and a patented peptide, Oligopeptide-10TM, which has been clinically proven to reduce more than 42 per cent of acne in under six weeks2
