Good skin is a pre-requisite at any age, and spots, rashes and redness can greatly affect confidence. One in five women between the ages of 25 and 40 suffer from adult acne(1), affecting thousands across the UK.
The Harley Medical Group is experienced in treating acne problems, with a number of clinically proven acne skin treatments available. As well as acne, the treatments can also help tackle rosacea, a condition which is commonly associated with adult acne causing a red rash with bumps to appear on the skin. Virtually pain-free, patients are not required to take medication with The Harley Medical Group’s non-surgical cosmetic procedures, which are non-invasive and require no recovery time.
The Group offers FDA-approved treatments including PPx/Isolaz which is the only approved laser treatment for acne. It is becoming increasingly popular, and effective; in a recent study 64% of people who did not respond to topical treatments, antibiotics or painful laser treatments had 75% clearance. A deep pore cleansing acne treatment, PPx/Isolaz leaves skin feeling cleaner, clearer and more radiant; and most patients see a very good result within five treatments (at weekly to three weekly intervals).
The expert team at The Harley Medical Group have also launched a skincare range, with products which can help tackle the effects of acne. Ultra Anti-Bac Cream incorporates a combination of natural ingredients formulated to help reduce skin breakouts and the appearance of pimples, pustules and comedones for oily skin types. It has also shown to have a potent regulating effect on elevated sebum production, with strong anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties resulting in improved complexion and skin tone.
Anti-microbial Cell Renewal Cream is a hard working blend of active ingredients containing a botanical seed extract that increases blood flow and helps to recover skin cell turnover. Natural willow Bark plant extract provides anti-microbial and exfoliating activity whilst smoothing the skin’s surface.
Alison Davidson, acne patient at The Harley Medical Group, says: “I suffered the occasional skin breakout as a teenager, but nothing can compare to the confidence-crushing of having adult acne. I was constantly self-conscious and would spend hours applying makeup to disguise my bad skin. Laser treatment, combined with the Microbial Cell Renewal Cream, has not only cleared up my acne, it has made my skin look glowing and younger – I am so relieved I had the treatment.”
