Acne Awareness Month - 50% acne treatment

Posted 08/06/2023 | Advice


June is #AcneAwarenessMonth

Many of our patients come to us with concerns about acne, and we understand how it can impact you, your mental health & self esteem.

At Thames Skin Clinic, we have the knowledge, expertise and experience to be able to assist you on your skin transformation journey.

But first, let’s discuss what acne is…


What is acne?

Acne is a very common skin condition that affects many people of all ages. Contrary to popular belief you can develop acne at any stage of life, not just in your teenage years.

Acne occurs when pores are clogged by dead skin cells that are trapped by sebum production. Bacteria then gets into the clogged pores, where it then multiplies and causes inflammation. This inflammation leads to acne cysts or nodules which can be very painful depending on the severity.

Other symptoms include pustules, papule’s, comedones & oiliness.

Acne could be trigged due to external factors such as sweat or cosmetics, or even internal factors such as genetics, hormones, lifestyle and stress levels.

Smoking leads to an increased level of acne, and pregnancy can cause breakouts too.

Puberty is normally the main culprit, with as many as 80 to 90 percent of teenagers suffering from acne.

Eating lots of simple sugars in the diet can also contribute to acne outbreaks.

Despite the rumours, acne isn’t caused through ‘poor hygiene’ or ‘dirty skin’ & Dr Anna and her team are very passionate about spreading the awareness of this, to prevent bullying and the stigma around acne.

The areas that are most affected by acne are the face, back, and chest area.

When left untreated, acne can cause scarring, so it is best to treat acne early rather than trying to wait it out.

How does Cutera® Laser Genesis for Acne work ?

This 1064nm laser uses controlled heat to kill acne causing bacteria while simultaneously treating redness and early scars caused by acne in the skin. It is usually used on the face, and neck. This treatment is an effective and long-term solution to acne by treating the overactive sebaceous glands that when producing too much oil, clogs up the skin pores.

What can laser genesis treat ?

Unlike other superficial treatments, this procedure penetrates deep into the skin’s cellular layer and counters the overactive sebaceous glands, promoting new skin cell and collagen growth.

In addition, it helps to shrink skin pores on the cheeks, chin, nose, chin and forehead, as well as smoothen fine lines, rough skin, and reduce skin reduce a symptom common to acne.

This popular, no down-time laser not only helps improve acne breakouts, but also acne scarring and postinflammatory hyperpigmentation caused by the acne as well.

Please note – this treatment is also very good for collagen stimulation and patients that suffer from rosacea too. Offer available to ALL Thames Skin Clinic patients.
