Let’s be honest, we’ve all covered up acne with makeup, tried all the creams and medicines and used some unorthodox home remedies too. Sometimes they help, although acne’s presence can still lead to feelings of low self-confidence and unattractiveness. We know. We’ve been there. So, let’s do something about it, together. We present the best treatments for acne and acne scars.
This is where light energy is aimed at acne cells, heating the area and destroying the cells. Red areas are considerably reduced and our clients are always happy with the wonderful results. The treatment lasts around 20 minutes and the number of sessions needed depends on severity, though 6 sessions every 3-6 weeks is usually recommended. Before your first, you’ll need a consultation to ensure suitability.
This great mask uses infra-red light and visible blue light to eradicate infection found under the skin and destroy acne-causing bacteria. The blue light also refreshes the skin by reducing inflammation. The mask’s red light can be used for skin rejuvenation and the purple for healing and aftercare – both good for emphasizing your skin’s healthy glow.
We also recommend a monthly Pro Facial, which opens up and cleans your pores by removing debris, oils and makeup that cause blackheads, whiteheads and other acne symptoms.
Acne Scar Treatments

Pore dimensions will decrease after 1 session and improvements continue for up to 6 months.
