Two of the worst things about growing up? Bad breakups and bad acne. Not much we can do about the first nightmare but we can certainly help with the second one.
Acne occurs when too much sebum (an oily or waxy matter produced by sebaceous glands), mixed with dead skin cells, form a plug in the pores of our skin. The pores get blocked, bacteria sets in to create redness and swelling and pimples form. This may lead to pus-filled infections, breakouts, wounds, and scarring.
Acne doesn't cause major problems to our health but when it is highly aggravating and persistent, the stubborn scars and uneven skin caused by acne can do great damage to our self-esteem, long after we enter adulthood.
What we have assembled together is an arsenal of lasers, peels, and infusions to treat the problem, battle those scars and smoothen your skin. We may also prescribe oral medication and topical creams and gels to address the causes of the acne.
Acne Buster Programme
This is Halley’s acne “starter kit” for parents who are worried about their teen’s acne breakout and teens (or even the young at heart) who are at a loss with their oily, acne face.
The Acne Buster Programme ($390 incl. GST) comes with an Acne Peel that contains salicylic acid to unclog pores, followed by the Long Pulsed Laser to destroy overactive sebaceous glands and reduce acne inflammation. We complete the programme with a Low Level Laser Light therapy to kill bacteria. Book a consultation to find out more.
