Acne & Acne Scars

Dubai skyline background

Acne- the medical term is acne vulgaris, while this is commonly known as pimples, this can also mean papules, pustules, comedones and even nodules or cysts. This is a disease that affects teenagers mostly, but it can also affect adults in their 30’s or 40’s. Acne can be caused by an imbalance in hormones, stress, which can result in oily skin or even dehydrated skin which can also be one of the causes in adult acne.

There are many treatment options available to anyone who suffers with acne. For a relatively simple result a doctor’s prescription after a thorough consultation may be the best course of action. However for a more cosmetic & long term result, Biolite offers a range of treatments for those who choose not to go on medication. See Acne Clinic. Book an appointment with the dermatologist.

Acne Clinic

At some point in our lives we all get outbreaks of Acne…

There are many myths about the cause of acne. Some people think that the incidence of acne is higher if you eat foods like chocolate or French fries. Others think that the presence of acne is due to poor hygiene. Neither is true. Acne is caused by the body’s increased production of the hormone androgen (produced by both men and women), which stimulates the sebaceous glands to produce more oil. The increased production of oil causes the pores to become blocked, so that the oil cannot come up to the skin surface. The acne itself is an infection caused by skin bacteria that feed on and break down this oil.

Steps

Step 1: Active Acne

  • Acne Treatment with a combination of light based treatments and peels for 6 – 8 sessions

  • The skin will appear smooth, clear and even toned

Step 2: Acne Scars

  • Treat deep tissue scars with a combination of E-Matrix and Derma Mesotherapy, along with a combination of serums to boost collagen formation within the deep scars
  • The treatment completes step 1 process, and improves almost all traces of pigmentation and scarring caused by the acne

Step 3: Maintenance

  • We will provide you with mild skin care to support the treatments, so as not to over stimulate the skin's oil glands and to balance moisture
  • We also provide mineral based SPF and cosmetics in order to conceal any acne scars during the treatment as the only safest option

Frequently Asked Questions

How does Ellipse treatment work?

The Ellipse operator guides the light from the flash-lamp to the treatment area. The unique ellipse IPL 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 hemoglobin, which is the red pigment in blood. The light from the flash-lamp heats up the hemoglobin 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. What ever your situation, we will work with you and provide the best acne treatment in dubai you can get.

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

The light used is safe, visible light, so no special precautions are necessary. Potentially harmful wavelengths are removed by the unique Ellipse Dual Mode filtering system. The Ellipse acne treatment is a combination therapy .In the clinic you will be given a tube of Differing cream or gel to apply once very evening in the acne-affected area and a course of peels is recommended. Peels work by reducing the inflammation caused by acne, and by reducing (normalizing) the thickness of the skin in the treated area. You will learn more from the doctor who will prescribe differing.

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, your doctor will probably recommend that you continue using differing cream for some months after the Ellipse acne treatment has ended. Should you suffer from a future acne outbreak; the treatment with ellipse can be repeated.

Benefits

Although results vary from person to person, initials results have shown to improve with the Ellipse treatment, compared to with topical cream alone. Please talk to your physician about what results you can expect.
