Acne treatment is a key focus at Skin Enhance and Wellness, particularly during Acne Awareness Month in June. I am committed to delivering science-backed treatments that effectively clear and promote healthy skin. Acne, characterised by comedones, papules, pustules, and cysts, commonly affects the face, neck, chest, back, and shoulders. Key factors contributing to acne include follicular blockage by dead skin cells, excessive sebum production, and inflammation due to C. acne bacteria.

Adult acne presents unique challenges, often triggered by hormonal fluctuations, stress, unsuitable skincare products, high-glycaemic foods, and environmental factors. Understanding these triggers is crucial for tailoring effective acne treatments. At Skin Enhance and Wellness, my treatment approach targets reducing sebaceous gland activity, lowering bacterial levels, correcting abnormal keratinisation, and minimising inflammation to achieve clear, healthy skin.

At Skin Enhance and Wellness, I offer targeted medical-grade skincare and chemical peel treatments for effective acne management, though numerous other treatments are also available for acne management.

Medical-Grade Skincare for Acne Treatment

Obagi Medical Skincare

Obagi Medical has been a trusted name in acne treatment for over 35 years. Renowned for its clinically proven, gold-standard ingredients designed to correct pigmentation and other skin issues. The Obagi Clenziderm System, a powerful three-step regimen containing salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide is a prescription-only product. These ingredients work together to penetrate deeply into the follicles, effectively treating acne at its root. The system’s ability to reach the deeper layers of the skin sets it apart from other formulations, making it highly effective in clearing acne fast. Given the potency of these products, a face-to-face consultation is required to ensure they are suitable for your skin type and needs.

Here’s why I chose Obagi Medical Products

AlumierMD Skincare

Combining professional chemical peels with customised home skincare regimens, AlumierMD addresses a variety of skin concerns. After an initial consultation, a bespoke skincare plan is created for each patient, allowing you to purchase genuine AlumierMD products from the online portal. 

ESK Skincare

ESK (Evidence Skincare) products are formulated based on independent scientific studies published in renowned medical journals. Each ingredient is carefully selected for its proven effectiveness, ensuring optimal results. ESK’s commitment to using high-quality ingredients in precise concentrations makes it a trusted choice for acne treatment and improving skin health. Their formulations are tailored to deliver the best possible results without compromising on quality, making them a valuable addition to my treatment offerings.

Chemical Peels for Acne Treatment

How Chemical Peels Work for Acne

Chemical peels effectively treat acne by improving skin health and reducing symptoms through various mechanisms. Initially, a peel exfoliates using a specialised acid solution that breaks bonds between dead skin cells, clearing the skin’s surface and unclogging pores. This process encourages the shedding of outer layers, preventing future breakouts. Moreover, active ingredients like salicylic acid and glycolic acid penetrate deeply to combat bacteria and inflammation. They promote cell turnover and renewal, not only treating existing acne but also preventing future blemishes. Thus, peels result in smoother, clearer, and more radiant skin.

At Skin Enhance and Wellness, I offer several types of chemical peels to cater to different skin needs:

BioRePeel3 Face or Body with Complimentary LED Therapy

The BioRePeel is a cutting-edge, two-phase medical-only chemical peel that exfoliates the skin’s outermost layers, promoting cell turnover and renewal. This process purges impurities such as trapped sebum, dead skin cells, and debris from pores. BioRePeelCl3 blends TCA 35%, lactobionic acid, salicylic acid, tartaric acid, and citric acid with enzymes, vitamins, and other components for diverse skin benefits. Its exfoliating action not only boosts cell turnover but also deeply revitalises and stimulates the skin, effectively combating skin ageing and acne scarring.

The inclusion of LED therapy enhances the treatment’s effectiveness, targeting acne and reducing inflammation.

Obagi Medical Blue Peel Radiance

The Obagi Medical Blue Peel Radiance excels as an acne treatment by exfoliating dead skin cells, unclogging pores, reducing inflammation, and revealing glowing skin. It contains 20% salicylic acid, 2% glycolic acid, and 2% lactic acid, making it effective for both facial and body use. These potent ingredients deeply penetrate to clear acne and enhance skin smoothness and radiance. Customisation of the Blue Peel Radiance’s strength is possible by adjusting the number of layers applied, tailored to individual skincare needs.

AlumierMD Radiant 20/10 Peel

The Radiant 20/10 Resurfacing Medical Skin Peel suits oily or combination skin types well. It combines 20% lactic acid, enhancing skin tone and texture, with 10% salicylic acid, which breaks down sebum in pores and reduces inflammation. This peel exfoliates dead skin cells, accelerates cell turnover, and enhances skin tone and texture. Moreover, it diminishes acne pimples and reduces fine lines, large pores, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage, revealing clearer and more radiant skin.

AlumierMD Glow Peel

The Glow Peel, a half Jessner Peel, combines 7% lactic acid, 7% salicylic acid, and 7% resorcinol to create a powerful resurfacing solution. This formula effectively minimises fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation issues like age spots and uneven skin tone. By exfoliating dead skin cells and stimulating cell renewal, the Glow Peel improves skin texture and radiance. Pre-treatment with home serums is necessary for certain skin types for at least two weeks before the Glow Peel. Its strength can be adjusted by varying the number of layers applied to meet individual needs.

NeoStrata ProSystem Prescription-Strength Retinol Peel

The NeoStrata ProSystem Prescription-Strength Retinol Peel is an advanced, physician-strength treatment specifically for acne sufferers. It includes 3% retinol and a unique Retinol Boosting Complex™, offering a potent solution for achieving clearer skin. Patients typically see visible results within 2 to 3 treatments. Besides clearing acne, the NeoStrata ProSystem Retinol Peel enhances skin laxity and achieves a brighter, more even, and clearer complexion.

Chemical peels can provide dramatic improvements in skin health and appearance. While some peeling or flaking is common post-treatment, it is essential to prepare the skin with medical-grade products to minimise potential side effects and enhance results. I will guide you through the preparation and post-care process to ensure the best possible outcomes.
