Particularly common in teenagers, acne is a skin disease which occurs when hair follicles on the face or back become clogged with oil and dead cells. This leads to oily skin and the formation of spots. While acne doesn’t pose any serious health threats, it can knock confidence and can lead to scarring if not properly treated.
At the Light Touch Clinic we are pleased to offer INTRAcel, a combination treatment which can prevent future breakouts as well as tackling current acne lesions and scars.
We love INTRAcel at the Light Touch Clinic and have achieved some truly amazing results. Last year, we won the award for Best Non-Surgical Makeover at the MyFaceMyBody Awards for our fab transformation of local actress Aisling Knight using just three INTRAcel treatments. We are thrilled to have been featured in the Daily Mail for the fab, confidence-boosting results we achieved for one of our patients using INTRAcel.
How Does It Work?
INTRAcel uses a combination of radiofrequency and micro-needling to both reduce the appearance of current spots and scars and prevent future breakouts. Radiofrequency heat energy reduces the production of oil and bacteria on the skin, reducing the chance of future breakouts. Micro-needling causes trauma to the skin, promoting the production collagen to reduce the appearance of scarring.
To make the treatment as comfortable as possible, you will have a topical anaesthetic applied 1 hour before your treatment.
For the best results, you should complement your treatment with a good skincare routine. This will help existing lesions heal and better control oil levels to stop new spots from forming. To find out what skincare would be best for you, you should book a skin consultation with a medical practitioner or Fariba, our skincare expert. We often recommend TE pads from ZO Skin Health to help treat acne. This is a daily leave-on treatment which stops excessive oiliness in its tracks, controlling acne and combatting shine! Packed with maximum-strength 2% Salicylic Acid, TE Pads remove dead skin cells to prevent pores from clogging. TE Pads also have a special botanical extract blend which can help soothe inflamed skin and reduce any redness.
If you have any hyperpigmentation (dark marks where you had acne lesions), we have some fab products for that too! We have a range of skin brightening treatments from the ZO range for pigmentation problems!
To find out the best option for you, we recommend coming in for a consultation with one of our medical practitioners. They can put together a bespoke action plan of treatments and/or skincare to help you feeling and looking your best! Your consultation is also a fantastic opportunity to ask our experts any questions you may have about acne.
