WHAT HAPPENS DURING MY TREATMENT?


We cleanse the skin and apply a gentle fruit enzyme peel prior to the treatment to remove the build up dead skin cells that cause congestion. A high frequency current (thermolysis) is then performed over the treatment area this instantly eases the sensation of pressure and pain experienced by the patient suffering with severe cystic acne.




IS THE TREATMENT PAINFUL?


There's a tiny sting followed by a quick shock of heat as it delivers energy into the sebaceous gland. It is not painful but there is numbing cream if required.




WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER MY TREATMENT?


After the treatment you may experience some erythema to the area that was treated but subsides very quickly after the treatment. You can return to your usual daily activies.




HOW MANY SESSION WILL I NEED?


Depending on the severity of acne, we recommend anything from one or two treatments for milder cases to a series of six to 10 once a month for more severe cases.




WHAT PRECAUTIONS SHOULD I TAKE PRE AND POST CARE?


Pre treatment care: We recommend wearing a daily sunscreen prior to your treatment to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. If your skin is peeling or sunburnt, we recommend that you wait a few weeks for the peeling or burn to subside. Please do not use any prescription Vitamin A for 1 week prior to your treatment.

Post Treatment: We recommend no harsh acids or scrubs for at least 5 days post treatment. Your dermal therapist will guide you on a recommended skin care program for your skin concerns. Sunscreen must be worn for a minimum of 14 days post treatment to prevent post-inflammatory hyper pigmentation.

We always recommend the daily use of SPF 30 sunscreen to prevent the skin becoming sun damaged. Please apply at least once every two hours when out in the sun.
