Acne is the most common of skin diseases, affecting 85 per cent of Australians aged 15-24 years old.
Acne usually clears spontaneously for many people by their mid 20s. However, for some it is a far more serious problem with the possibility of permanent physical, mental and emotional effects.
Adolescent boys and young men (13 – 25 yrs old) have higher levels of androgens (hormones that rule the development of the sexual organs) than females so they are more likely to have acne and unfortunately, are also more likely to have severe acne. Acne in guys usually settles during their early 20s.
Females are more likely to suffer with ongoing acne. In some cases, this means acne can be hanging around even in your 30s and 40s. Females can also develop acne for the first time after puberty.
At Botanique we take a holistic approach to treating all forms of acne. This includes assessing the skin as well as lifestyle such as diet, sport, stress levels, etc to determine the treatments and products that will best assist in improving the condition.
Of course everyone wants to get rid of their acne as quickly as possible which is why the “quick fix” sounds so appealing. The reality is treatment of acne takes time and patience. In mild cases that may mean a week but for the more severe forms of acne, it may require a few months to clear your acne. The upside is you’ll see results on the way. Please discuss options with us before you spend large amounts of money on an advertised ‘quick fix’ and/or products that will do more harm than good to your skin.
A variety of in salon treatments are available including:
- LED Therapy
- Collagen Induction Therapy (for scarring)
- Ongoing facial treatments and prescribed, affordable home care products
- Extractions using appropriate equipment
- High Frequency….and much more.
