Zits, spots, pimples, acne... Whatever you call them, they plague many of us from our teens into adulthood. A common, yet often chronic skin condition, acne affects approximately 80% of adolescents and up to 20% of adults. We’re all subject to the dead skin cells, dirt, and oily secretions which clog the skin pores, allowing oil and bacteria to build up in the sebaceous glands of the skin. It is this build-up and inflammation that results in pustules, pimples or other irritations.
While the bad news is, there is no cure for acne, scientists are attempting to discover one daily. The other good news is you can control and reduce the condition significantly by using medication from your GP and having regular skin care treatments here at CoLaz.
We help you find the acne skin treatment that is best for you according to several factors. We tailor our treatments to the type of acne you have, as well as the cause and severity of your skin problem. The wrong treatment can often do more harm than good. That’s why we recommend that you consult with one of our skin specialists to begin your journey to soft, smooth, blemish-free skin today.
To reduce acne, it is important to understand the four main stages of how acne occurs:
- Through oily skin - Pores becoming blocked - Bacteria formation - Skin inflammation
Our trained skin specialists at CoLaz will help minimize these problem stages substantially by using specialized products and treatments suitable for your skin.
At CoLaz, we use several treatments to fight acne. Your skin specialist will determine the best treatment for you during a one-on-one consultation, which will include the following options:
Intense Pulsed Light Therapy (IPL)
Alongside IPL hair removal, this is also one of the most successful acne treatments,working best in cases of mild to moderate inflammatory acne. High-intensity pulsed light targets affected areas and permeates tissue to destroy harmful bacteria and help prevent future breakouts.
And, since IPL is completely safe and non-toxic, it delivers drug-free results without side effects, pain, photo sensitivity, or downtime.
Light Emitting Diode Therapy (LED)
LED therapy is a very popular way of treating moderate to severe acne since it is both non-invasive and painless. Our treatments utilize red lights, blue lights, or a combination of both to neutralize acne-causing bacteria. All to stimulate tissue healing and skin repair.
The energy produced by the LED’s reduces inflammation, replenishes damaged or dead cells, and stimulates collagen production, thus preventing future breakouts. A great solution long-term.
Top benefits include the treatment’s suitability and safety for all skin types.And though it is more expensive than other treatments, many people have reported significant results.
Fine crystals lightly abrade the skin to gently remove the top layer and shed the dead cells that can clog pores and build up. Microdermabrasion is also extremely effective in clearing away acne-causing bacteria and stimulating the production of collagen without damaging your skin.
It is most successful for mild to moderate acne conditions, though not recommended by acne dermatologists for treating severe levels of acne.
Chemical peels, again, are another common treatment of mild to moderate acne. Peels are used to remove dead cells by exfoliating the top layer of skin. Since they penetrate deep into the pores, they can unclog hair follicles, destroy bacteria, and stimulate the production of collagen and new cells all at the same time.
There are different types of peels available, but some can cause redness, irritations, and temporary photosensitivity. We advise a consultation with one of our expert skin care specialists before you set up your appointment.
Dermapen (Micro Needling Treatment)
This automated needling treatment naturally stimulates collagen and elastin drastically better than traditional micro-needling.
It gives skin strength and structure while helping to replace dead skin cells, so you get a young, healthy look without the often-painful side effects of traditional micro-needling.
