Acne is one of the most well-known skin complaints. Blackheads and pimples are the main symptoms of acne. If you suffer from acne, you have often already tried everything to combat the acne, inflammation and pimples. Nothing helps enough. That is of course a pity. Especially because acne can be treated if you individually look at where the triggers of acne lie. In combination with sufficient medical knowledge and the most optimal techniques, we can achieve good results.
While hormonal changes during puberty are a major trigger, acne can manifest itself at any time. Especially at a later age, many people have to deal with acne on the face or on the body. It is a skin condition that can have a lot of influence on your life and self-image. Beautiful skin gives confidence. Do you want to master acne?
Our acne treatments aim to get the formation of blackheads and pimples under control and to repair the skin damage caused by acne such as a coarse skin structure, spots, redness and scars as much as possible. Our skin therapists not only treat the symptoms, but also look for a solution to prevent new impurities. Careful compliance with personal advice regarding the daily care of your skin and if necessary adjustments in your lifestyle are important parts in the fight against acne. The treatment that is used against acne is to cleanse the impurities, in combination with a professional medical peeling from Dermaceutic and an IPL or Hydrafacial treatment. A personal treatment plan is always drawn up. If necessary, the acne treatments can be combined with additional medication via the general practitioner or dermatologist.
The treatment plan is always twofold. In addition to the medical peels from Dermaceutic that we perform in practice, it is also essential that you get started with the recommended exfoliating products from Dermaceutic for at home (at least 2 to 4 weeks before the first treatment). By using the exfoliating products at home, the dead skin cells are removed and the skin thins. This makes the skin more permeable and the peeling reaches the deeper layers of the skin better, so that the most optimal result is achieved faster and the treatment is more effective. The skin will also recover faster after a treatment and the results of the treatment will be maintained for longer, so that maintenance treatments are needed less often. We believe that you can get acne under control for 60%, as soon as you know your personal triggers in combination with the right home products. The skin therapeutic treatments are the other 40%, which give you a big push in the direction of beautiful skin.
Chemical peels are liquids that consist of natural acids. At Skin Project, working with medical peels based on Glycolic Acid, Salicylic Acid, Lactic Acid, Mandelic Acid or Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA).
These ingredients provide a deep cleaning of the pores and tackle the acne bacteria (p.acnes) and inhibit sebum production. The active ingredients in a peel also stimulate and accelerate cell renewal of the skin, preventing new blockages, impurities and inflammation. The depth into which the peeling penetrates depends on the type of ingredients we use. We determine this together by tailoring it to your individual wishes. There is a suitable peeling for every skin
With our IPL (Intensed Pulsed Light) treatment of the InMode system, we tackle acne from the inside and from the source: the sebaceous glands. During the IPL treatment, the light destroys the bacteria that cause acne. The inflamed sebaceous glands also shrink due to this treatment, which reduces the overproduction of sebum. This makes the IPL treatment a very effective treatment for inflammation and redness. The treatment is suitable for the face, but also for pimples on the back and chest.
The Inmode is CE and FDA certified, which monitors the safety of the equipment.
Hydrafacial offers a three-step treatment that deeply cleanses and exfoliates the skin, while saturating it with antioxidants and hydration. When the skin is thoroughly cleaned deep into the pores and then saturated with antioxidants, the skin will also produce less sebum for protection due to less oxidative stress. The antioxidants will also reduce inflammation in the skin resulting in less redness. LED light therapy is used to inhibit sebum production and kill the bacteria that cause acne.
Skin Project also offers treatments that can be combined with each other, e.g. an IPL treatment in combination with. with a chemical peel. These treatments are intended to improve the redness, structure and flexibility of the skin, by activating cell renewal and collagen production in the skin. The effect and results have been extensively researched and scientifically proven.
What effect can you expect?
You will notice that thanks to the treatments and the use of the right skin products, the acne will be reduced. Multiple treatments are needed to stabilize the acne in the skin. Depending on your skin condition, we usually start with 3 to 5 acne treatments. A treatment lasts on average 45 to 60 minutes. After each treatment, we evaluate how things are going and whether we can adjust the treatment plan if necessary. If necessary, we will adapt your plan to your skin requirements. The basis is always first to stabilize the active acne and then move on to the treatment of residual spots and any acne scars.
After the active treatment process, we look at how you can best maintain your skin. Both with a home treatment and with (any) skin therapeutic treatments on a maintenance basis.
Important to know
It is possible that the acne gets worse after the treatment, before it gets better. After the treatment, the skin may look red. The skin may also slightly flake or peel. It is important not to scratch the skin. If desired, we can also advise you on the right post-treatment creams and foundation, which ensure that the recovery of the damaged skin is accelerated. Initially we will plan the treatments every 3 weeks so that the acne does not have a chance to develop. worsen. When the acne stabilizes, we can extend the period between treatments.
