Acne is the bane of many teenagers’ life and often adults’ too, with approximately 90 per cent of all teenagers suffering at some point. Acne can be a source of embarrassment and discomfort for many people. It is not caused by eating chocolate, greasy foods, or bad hygiene! While the physical appearance of acne is quite obvious, the emotional pain can be devastating, and long lasting. The important thing is to seek out treatment — the acne spots will eventually go, but untreated acne can lead to permanent scarring. If acne is treated during your teen years, there is a high likelihood that you will not suffer any long-term scarring.
The causes of acne can differ from person to person, so it is necessary to manage the acne condition based on how severe your acne is. The Galway Laser & Skincare Clinic offers an alternative to prescribed medications to address the problem. Highly experienced skincare specialists are on hand to offer skincare advice and to devise a personalised treatment programme. The specialists educate clients on their skincare needs, explaining how the skin works, how acne affects the skin, and the steps to address and improve the problem.
The clinic offers a number of options to address problematic skin, including take home products, in-clinic treatments, vitamin and mineral supplements, and laser treatments.
The Murad skincare products available at the Galway Laser & Skincare Clinic are the most effective acne products available without prescription. Dr Murad is a dermatologist and a pharmacist who has developed a skincare programme to target acne and problematic skin. Dr Murad looks at internal as well as external factors when addressing the acne bacteria. Using a combination of specialist vitamin supplements, products for home care, and a course of in-clinic treatments, the results are visible after only a few weeks. This skincare programme is clinically proven to reduce breakouts in 90 per cent of users in just four weeks, a combination of all methods results in very effective and maintainable solution to the problem.
The clinic also offers a skincare programme for adult acne and problematic skin types. One in five adults experience acne at some point in their lives. Experts now believe that the increased stress in our lives can be one of the main causes behind increased breakouts of acne in adults. Acne in men is sometimes confused with shaving irritation. While shaving itself cannot cause acne, not using the proper blade or shaving cream can cause your skin to become irritated or nicked. Skincare specialists will analyse the skin and give shaving tips to improve the problem.
The clinic regularly treats acne scarring with treatments such as microdermabrasion and laser treatments. However early detection and treatment of acne is the best way to avoid such scarring. The clinic is offering special discounts on all acne treatments for the month of April.
