Acne

Acne is one of the most common skin diseases that exists and unfortunately, it appears to be on the rise...

It is a skin disease that involves the oil glands at the base of hair follicles which are stimulated by male hormones produced by the adrenal glands of both males and females. Hormonal changes lead to the skin becoming sensitive to a hormone known as DHT. The skin responds by increasing sebum production, decreasing natural skin cell shredding meaning dead skin cells clump together and form a plug in the pilo-sebaceous duct.

The skin bacteria start to digest the plug and produce by-products which cause inflammation. Bacteria is therefore not the cause of acne but it is their response to the changes in the skin which leads to spots. 

There are a variety of causes of acne. It can be an inherited condition or it can be caused by external factors, such as hormones, stress, medications, irritating cosmetic ingredients and many other factors.

Increasingly, we are seeing more and more adults suffer from ‘hormonally mediated’ acne, which often occurs to those in their late twenties and early thirties. This can have a big impact on self-esteem and confidence levels, but here at The Holderness Laser Clinic, we have a real understanding of the skin and the complex issues relating to acne. We offer a range of treatments what can really make a difference to your skin.

We have a range of home care products and clinic treatment protocols designed to treat and control the symptoms and causes of acne:

About Acne

At some point in our lives, we all get outbreaks of acne. It is one of the most common skin diseases that exists and unfortunately, it appears to be on the rise...

How does Ellipse laser acne removal treatment work?

The Ellipse operator guides the light from the flash-lamp to the treatment area. The unique Ellipse I2PL system carefully filters this light in two ways to ensure that only light with the correct characteristics (wavelengths) is allowed to reach your skin.

The light that is allowed through is absorbed by haemoglobin, which is the red pigment in blood. The light from the flash-lamp heats up the haemoglobin in the fine blood vessels that supply the sebaceous glands. This causes a minor injury to the sebaceous glands and slows down the overproduction of oil that leads to acne.

Can I be treated?

If you have permanent acne you will benefit from a treatment. The best results are achieved on inflammatory acne – best known as those red, aching, raised pimples. It is important your skin is relatively pale at the time of the treatment, as too much light will be absorbed by a dark complexion.

Does it hurt?

Many patients describe it as a warming sensation similar to the feeling one has after a day on the beach.

Do I need to take special precautions before and after treatment?

The light used is completely safe, visible light, so no special precautions are necessary. The unique Ellipse Dual Mode Filtering system removes unwanted wavelengths.

The Ellipse laser acne removal treatment is a combination therapy. In the clinic you will be given a glycolic cream or serum to apply every day in the acne-affected area. IT works by reducing the inflammation caused by acne, and by reducing (normalising) the thickness of the skin in the treated area.

Generally no post-treatment care is immediately necessary, but people with sensitive skin may benefit from applying an ice pack to the face immediately after treatment or applying the soothing gel.

What can I expect?

You may notice some general redness on the face following the treatment. If you have sun-damaged skin, some of the pigmented spots may turn darker and eventually disappear.

Because the bacteria are difficult to eradicate completely it is recommended that you continue using glycolic cream or serum for some months after the Ellipse acne treatment had ended. Should you suffer from a future acne outbreaks, the treatment with Ellipse can be repeated.

Although results vary from person to person, initial results from a recent clinical study show that 58% of acne lesions disappeared with the Ellipse treatment, compared to 33% improvement with topical cream alone. The technician will explain what results you can expect.

How can I be sure Ellipse is safe and effective?

Clinical trials documenting Ellipse’s safety and effectiveness are carried out by leading doctors prior to the release of the product. The results of these tests are then published in respected, refereed medical journals. You are welcome to view these scientific papers on the Ellipse website at www.ellipse.org. The settings used for your treatment will be based on the settings recommended by the clinicians who carried out the clinical trials.

How many Ellipse treatments do I need?

The number of treatments depends on the body site and the severity of the redness. Clinical studies have confirmed that 1-4 treatments usually are needed, and these are timed about one month apart.
