Acne is a common and challenging skin condition. We use the latest ClearSkin Er:Glass (erbium glass fibre) laser to treat the skin. ClearSkin is the first laser that combines a non-ablative laser with contact cooling and vacuum technology to treat acne vulgaris safely and effectively. The non-ablative 1540nm Erbium Glass laser penetrates the skin, destroys the P. Acnes bacteria, causes thermal damage to the sebaceous glands and reduces sebum production but leaves the skin intact. The vacuum extracts accumulated sebaceous material from the pores. The contact cooling protects the skin, reduces pain and hence the treatment is safer and more effective. It is a non-ablative laser which means it uses a wavelength that heats up the water in the tissues but does not cause it to evaporate (ablate).

Clearskin Acne Treatment Treatment Info
The laser treats all forms of acne vulgaris including papules, pustules and nodules. It also treats blackheads, oily skin and open pores.
The ClearSkin laser also rejuvenates the skin by stimulating collagen production and hence improves:
- Acne scarring
- Lines and wrinkles
- Crepey skin
- Sun damage
- Sun spots
Before any treatment a patch test is done 24 hours before a treatment.
During the treatment, the hand-piece is passed across the treatment area several times in different directions so that the whole area is covered evenly.
The laser has a cooling system to minimise any discomfort.
The treatment is suitable for all skin types.
For acne, acne scarring and other skin conditions, we recommend a course of 6 – 12 treatments. Treatments are done every 2-3 weeks apart. The maintenance treatment is done 6 monthly.
There may be mild redness, swelling and skin irritation in the treated area. However, this can be significantly reduced and healing enhanced by having Dermalux LED Light Therapy immediately after the laser treatment.
We recommend the following:
- No exercise for 24 hours.
- No hot baths for 24 hours.
- No heat treatments to your face for up to 7 days.
- Avoid UV exposure after treatment.
- SFP and antioxidant protection to be worn after treatment.
We cannot carry out the treatment if you have:
- Tanned skin
- Hypopigmentation (vitiligo)
- Inflammatory skin condition (such as eczema or active herpes simplex) at the treatment site
- Skin cancer or other cancer (including being on cancer drug therapy)
- History of keloid scars
- Pregnancy or breast-feeding
Your results can be enhanced by using cosmeceutical skincare as well as high level, broad spectrum sun protection to reduce photo-damage.
"HYDRAFACIAL – ‘I felt that my face was glowing!’
I hadn’t heard of HydraFacial before but after looking at the leaflets, videos, testimonials and celebrity endorsements, I decided that I would like to try it.Before the treatment itself, I had a computerised skin analysis. After this, the benefits of the HydraFacial treatment, advanced skincare products from ZO as well as the six stages of the HydraFacial treatment were explained to me. I found the treatment very relaxing and almost fell asleep. The treatment also included the award-winning Dermalux light therapy which further stimulates collagen production. After the 20-minute lie-in under the red, blue and yellow lights I felt refreshed, and felt that my face was glowing!Friends and family complimented me. I felt radiant and confident. I whole-heartedly recommend this treatment.Barbara"
"VISIA SKIN ANALYSIS
During my first consultation at the clinic, I was offered a computerised skin and complexion analysis called Visia. The therapist talked me through every step of the process. All I had to do is to remove my make up, before placing my chin and forehead to the platform. The machine then took 3 photos from 3 different angles.After a couple of minutes, the therapist showed me my pictures on the big screen. It was painful but informative experience. I was able to see in detail lines, pores, pigmentation, redness and also acne bacteria. You could zoom in to the tiniest parts of my face and view a 3D animation. Then my skin age was compared to my actual age. I was relieved when there was only a difference of a year! It was also possible to make my skin look 5 years younger or older and see the changes that take place – a really interesting feature! It was even possible to measure my eyelash length!All in all, it was an interesting and informative experience and it will allow me to see any changes after any skin regimes and treatments. I would highly recommend the Visia Skin Analysis to anyone who wants to look after their skin.Barbara"
" I’M SO PLEASED WITH THE RESULT, IT’S SUCH A BIG DIFFERENCE!
I had these dark patches due to sun damage for a long time. During summer, they became darker and bigger, really noticeable. health + aesthetics is local, and I’d also done some research, checked out the Facebook page, reviews, and looked at the website and everything looked professional, so I booked the consultation.At my first consultation, I was advised to follow a strict skincare regime. We started off with a low strength and then gradually it got stronger and stronger. I had to persevere with it because my skin started to be flaky, red and itchy.So, every 6 weeks, I went up to a stronger product I went through the same process but I had a check-up and Visia photos taken, so it was obvious that it really worked. Not to mention that my whole face and skin started to look and feel fresher. I also had a course of HydraFacial treatment that gives an instant glow and your skin looks and feels fresh. I appreciated that everything was explained really well, I could see the changes on the screen as well as in the mirror.All in all, it’s been a really positive experience. It made me feel better about my look. It definitely makes me look younger. I would definitely recommend health + aesthetics basically to anyone who has any kind of issues with their skin. I didn’t think that a product use could have such a huge impact. It’s worth coming for the consultation to see what solutions there are out there and to get advice on your next steps. I feel more confident, the way I look. I’m so pleased with the result, it’s such a big difference!Joanne (42)"
