Acne Treatment Heathfield, East Sussex
Most of us experience acne to some extent during our lives. For many people, it is a short-term annoyance, but others develop more long-term and more severe acne. Acne occurs when one of the skins natural oils – sebum – is unable to leave the skin because the hair follicle is blocked. This may result in a blackhead, or a whitehead, and can lead to the growth of bacteria below the surface of the skin.
Inflammation can occur, and the rupture of an inflamed area can lead to scarring. Medication can help to reduce acne.

How long does it take?
The AW3® applicator that guides the light to the skin targets the area in a flash of light. It takes approximately 5-10mins to treat the full face. Including consultation and preparation, it should take no longer than 15 mins. A typical course is between 4-6 sessions three weeks apart.
Does it cause pain?
Although the AW3® technology produces less pain than most systems on the market, tolerance to pain varies from individual. No anaesthetics are required, and many patients describe the discomfort as a warming sensation similar to the feeling after a day on the beach.
What can I expect?
You may notice some initial redness on the face following the treatment. If you also have sun-damaged skin, some of the pigmented spots may turn darker
and eventually disappear. The bacteria are difficult to completely eradicate, your doctor will probably recommend that you continue using adapalene cream for a few months after the AW3® acne treatment course. Should you suffer from a future acne outbreak, the treatment can be repeated as a top-up. Although results vary from person to person, the AW3® system achieves superior results compared to any other device of its type.
