What Is A Acne Clear v2?

Laser treatments can provide a highly effective solution for eliminating persistent acne.

Topical and antibiotic treatments provide popular and effective alternatives, but laser acne treatments (Acne Clear) can achieve quick results without the need for drugs.

Laser treatments target the porphyrins produced as part of the normal metabolism of acne bacteria, creating an organic ‘singlet oxygen’ molecule that rapidly destroys the bacteria without damaging the surrounding tissue on interaction. This naturally destroys the acne bacteria in just a fraction of the time it typically takes for antibiotics to work, with extraordinary results after eight brief treatments over a period of four weeks. This is three times faster than common antibiotics and topical treatments.

Whatever your personal requirements, Laser Acne Treatments at the Cadogan Clinic provides the leading experts and techniques at its state-of-the-art, purpose-built, central London facility.

Frequently Asked Questions

Outcomes and results vary by case and the status of the existing acne, when treatment is sought. It is most common for your acne to be fully cleared, although some particularly stubborn cases can require ongoing treatment

During the teenage years it is common for acne to disappear on its own. Adult acne is much less likely to clear on its own without treatment.

Given the material risk of scarring, we always recommend you get your acne looked at by a professional dermatologist or seek medical advice.

There are highly effective treatments for reducing the appearance of acne scars, sometimes completely. This depends on the type of scarring however.

Acne Clear treatment is not painful. When you come to the Cadogan Clinic for your acne treatment initial consultation, your experienced aesthetic practitioner will explain the procedure to you. The practitioner is there to guide you along your journey and answer any questions you may have. He or she is your partner in the procedure and wants to make sure you are as comfortable before, during, and after the procedure as you can possibly be.

Before the treatment gets started your practitioner will give you a special pair of goggles to wear to protect your eyes from the light of the laser. A cooling gel may be applied to the treatment area, to soothe the skin before starting the acne laser treatment. This gel will also help minimize any tingling sensations or dryness after the procedure is over. During treatment, your practitioner will check with you to ensure you are staying comfortable and keep you apprised of how much time is left.

The Acne Clear laser system uses an intense blue wavelength of light to destroy the bacteria known to be a cause of acne. This system targets the bacteria and dead cells that have built up both on and below the surface of your skin.
It is an effective procedure and appears to improve acne vulgaris with a reduction in inflammation and the number of pustules and papules in some individuals. It is even more effective in combatting acne when used with other acne treatments as recommended by your Cadogan Clinic aesthetic practitioner.

Immediately following your acne laser treatment, you may notice some mild redness and very slight swelling, although this is very easily concealed and settles within 24-48 hours. Your Cadogan practitioner will recommend that you use daily broad-spectrum sunscreen protection following your acne laser treatment to maintain optimal skin health.
