Signs and Symptoms

Acne is a common skin condition that affects a large proportion of the population. It is characterised by redness, papules, whiteheads, pimples, and blackheads. The condition is often painful due to inflammation of the skin and lesions that occur as a result of picking at the affected areas. While most commonly seen in adolescents, it is becoming more prevalent in adults.

In the majority of cases, even after the acne has subsided, the skin is left with scars and marks. An increasing number of people are seeking acne treatment in Melbourne because this skin condition is not only physically damaging, but it can also be psychologically traumatic.

Why Do I Have It?

There are several different types of acne but the contributing causal factors remain the same. These are thought to be: hormones, genetics, diet, psychology and bacteria.

Hormones

Hormonal changes mostly occur during puberty, though they can happen at any time. These changes can cause the levels of oil, sebum, and moisture in the skin to become imbalanced – and this imbalance can result in acne.

Genetics

Some people are simply more genetically predisposed to the condition than others.

Bacteria

As acne often involves open lesions and wounds (as a result of burst pimples or picking), it is a breeding ground for bacteria. Bacteria can cause excessive inflammation and often requires a longer acne treatment program

Diet

Although evidence for a strong link between acne and diet isn’t conclusive, it is believed that diet plays a role in enhancing its symptoms. High fat and high sugar diets can cause the skin to become excessively oily, blocking pores and resulting in pimples.

Psychology

Increased levels of stress can cause acne flares.

Signs and Symptoms

Stretch marks are a type of scarring that can occur anywhere on the body, but typically occur on the stomach, hips, lower back, thighs, breasts, and upper arms. These streak-like scars vary in size and quantity, and can range in colour from white to pink and red to purple.

While they don’t tend to cause pain, they can be a source of discomfort and embarrassment due to their unsightly appearance, leading many to seek out an effective stretch mark treatment in Melbourne. Although stretch marks can fade over time, they won’t disappear naturally. Fortunately, professional stretch mark removal can be successful and effective in helping to minimise their appearance.

Causes

These marks seem to occur when the skin is rapidly stretched, causing the dermis to tear and separate. This rapid stretching can be attributed to changes in weight or rapid growth, which may occur during 

  • Puberty 
  • Weight gain.
  • Pregnancy – this usually occurs during the last trimester, with marks forming on the stomach, hips, breasts and thighs.
  • Bodybuilding – Due to the rapid growth of muscle mass.

They may also appear after you have lost weight and toned up your body.

Treatment Solutions

Skinsitut Peels

A controlled destruction of the outer skin layers (epidermis and upper dermis) is achieved, which is followed by skin repair and regeneration.

DMK Enzyme Therapy

Properly formulated enzymes can remove dead protein, toxins and other effluvia from the epidermis using a process called ‘reverse osmosis’

LED Light Therapy

Red Light therapy uses a 633nm wavelength to boost and bring more blood and nutrients to the area. It also stimulates vital collagen and elastin production.

Acnelan

Trying to find a safe & effective solution for acne can be hard. Acne is a hormonal condition with many causes, making it complicated to control – especially for severe or extreme cases.

I had micro needling done with dermal clinician Megan. She is very personable, professional and passionate about her work. She gave me a thorough briefing of the procedure and answered all of my questions during the consult. The treatment went very smoothly and I knew I was in safe hands. Looking forward to the results!

Mal was simply the most amazing and best consultation I've ever had here! She takes great care, eases you in the process as it is a bit scary, and very professional. The treatment has worked really well for me so far. I have an Indian dusky skin tone and had many queries and doubts going in. However, all my doubts were clearly answered and I would highly recommend the clinic to anyone looking for laser treatments! The place is very clean, organised, has great ambience and offers great services!
