acne treatment in salisbury

Acne Awareness Month

If you are suffering with acne you may not want to be reminded about it, however every June it is officially Acne Awareness Month, and this is now a global event which is recognised around the world.

What is the purpose of acne awareness month?

The idea behind Acne Awareness Month is to get more attention around this condition so people know they don’t have to suffer in silence. 

Acne has been around since time began, with historical mentions of this condition being found in ancient civilisations such as in Ancient Egypt. In fact, even King Tut was known to have acne and his tomb was filled with a variety of potions to treat this concern.

How to choose the right acne treatment?

Nowadays, we also have an array of treatments that can help eradicate acne and acne scars, but it can be hard to decipher which treatments are the best to help solve your specific acne concern.

At Fountain of Youth in Salisbury we provide medical skin treatments that are tried, tested and clinically proven to treat your acne. We work with each patient on an individual basis so that we can prescribe the right treatment that won’t just treat the cause, but also fit your lifestyle and budget!

Some of the acne treatments we have available in our clinic in Salisbury include:

Medical Grade skin care for acne

There are lots of over the counter cosmetic products that suggest they can treat acne, however, many of these products are not clinically or scientifically proven to get rid of this condition.

At Fountain of Youth we would recommend all our patients get the basics right with a medical grade skincare routine, and this is even more important for patients who have skin conditions like acne. 

Medical grade cosmetic products contain ingredients that are stronger than the ones you can buy over the counter and they have been clinically proven through trials and testing to get results. 

Because these products need to be prescribed, we would invite anyone who is interested in improving their skin care regime to make an appointment for a free consultation where we can explain which products would be best for your specific skin care concern.

Chemical Peels for acne treatment

Chemical peels are another solution for treating acne. At Fountain of Youth in Salisbury we use both superficial and medium depth peels to treat our patients who present with acne.

As the name of these peels suggest, peels work on different levels of the skin, one works on the top level and the other one works at a medium depth. When we are treating acne we have to be careful to not inflame the condition any further so we look at each patient on an individual basis, making sure that we choose the right peel to treat the type of acne each patient presents with.

Peels can be used in conjunction with medical grade skin care to help get rid of acne and improve the quality of your skin.

What about treating acne scars?

If you have had acne in the past you may still have the signs in the form of acne scarring. We can treat acne scars with dermal fillers or with radiofrequency microneedling treatment.

We are constantly looking at ways we can help you on your journey with acne. If you would like any more information about how we can help you to treat your acne, or if you would like any help with aesthetics or skin care we would be delighted to hear from you.
