Acne is an inflammatory skin condition and disorder of the sebaceous glands, and can be caused by a number of factors including stress and hormones. Whilst the oil produced by the sebaceous glands normally lubricates the skin, it can sometimes get trapped causing the enlargement and obstruction of the gland and the appearance of a spot.
Traditional therapies have a variety of side effects and sometimes require months to take effect. Oral antibiotics can cause stomach upset, light sensitivity and yeast infections in women, and studies indicate about 40% of skin bacteria have become resistant to antibiotics.
Here at Renaissance we offer a range of acne treatments which can help to manage and successfully treat Acne and scarring, such as Salicylic/Glycolic resurfacing treatments, Medical microdermabrasion and IPL Laser. A combination of these treatments provides the best solution, along with a home skincare plan to enhance and maintain results. These carefully selected products and treatments will help to calm down break-outs and reduce the incidence of new ones, by controlling inflammation and reducing the production of sebum.
Image Clear Cell Range
The Image Clear Cell line will be prescribed during your initial consultation and will prepare the skin for further treatment. A highly effective line to fight acne, reduce inflammation, eliminate excess oil and purify the skin. Most of the Image Skincare Clear Cell products contain benzoyl peroxide, one of first proven and most popular treatments for acne. It kills acne-causing bacteria and also helps keep pores clean. Salicylic acid is also another spot-fighting ingredient found in many of the Clear Cell product line. This acid helps prevent pores from clogging up through its exfoliating properties leaving the skin clearer and smoother. Along with proven acne-busting ingredients, this range also contains soothing, natural ingredients such as green tea and chamomile, to help in the skin-healing process.
