Acne is a stressful and challenging part of adolescence that can sometimes continue into adulthood. Acne vulgaris is a skin disease that 85% of Australians will experience in their lifetime. It is caused when hair follicles become blocked by dead skin cells, excess oil production (sebum) and bacteria, which leads to inflammation. Features include blackheads, whiteheads, pimples and cysts. Other causes of acne include fluctuating hormonal levels, stress and even genetics.

The good news is we offer several professional treatments and products that help can clear your skin from acne. To help you narrow down the best acne treatment in Brisbane for you, we’ve listed three that will give you the best results.

Facial Peels

Facial peels or chemical peels are an extremely effective and beneficial way to target numerous skincare concerns, including acne. They are loved for their convenience of no discomfort, no required aftercare and minimal downtime. This acne treatment takes roughly 45 minutes at our Brisbane clinic, so it is perfect for your lunchtime break. CBB Blvd offers peels of different intensities to cater to every skin type.

Jessner Peel

For clearing up acne, we highly recommend the Jessner Peel which is a mild to moderate peel which is designed to improve skin congestion. The Jessner Peel contains cleansing AHAs such as Lactic and Salicylic Acid and a highly effective organic compound with antiseptic and disinfecting properties (Resorcinol).

These ingredients work by deeply exfoliating and penetrating the skin to:

Combining this acne treatment with Red Light Therapy available in our Brisbane clinic will greatly fast-track your results.

Red Light Therapy is the best complimentary acne treatment that supports your skin’s recovery. It is affordable, non-invasive and 20 minutes in a regular session is all it takes to improve your skin. Aside from helping to fight active acne, the red light from the LED panels stimulate:

– Cellular renewal;
– DNA repair;
– Fast healing;

BBL Laser for Face and Body

Acne doesn’t always appear on our face. It can crop up on different areas of the body where there are clogged pores. The chest, upper back and shoulders are all areas at risk of developing acne due to their high count of sebaceous glands. Our BBL Laser treatment is the world’s most advanced and powerful IPL laser that treat several concerns, such as unwanted hair, fine lines and wrinkles, and acne.

The shorter wavelengths of the BBL Laser, in the blue-light spectrum, attack acne-causing bacteria on the surface and in the sebaceous gland. The advanced, dual broadband light technology, painlessly administers violet light deep under the skin to activate a porphyrin. This will kill acne-causing bacteria and smooth the skin. BBL Laser is capable of dramatically improving skin texture and lessen the appearance of scars, for those who are experiencing acne or those who have acne scarring.

BBL Laser will penetrate the skin without causing surface damage to:

– Targeting and destroying bacteria
– Reducing redness
– Lightening the appearance of acne scarring
