What is acne (acne vulgaris)?

  • Acne is a condition caused by skin cells that do not shed properly and plug pores, causing oil and bacteria to be trapped inside. As oil and bacteria accumulate, the skin becomes inflamed and swells outward forming whiteheads, blackheads and pimples.
  • It is sometimes referred to as acne vulgaris, good acne skincare is vital along with any acne treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Selston Cosmetic Clinic's American FDA approved state of the art laser system delivers green laser light through the skins surface triggering the body's natural bacteria fighting defences. These defenses kill the problem causing bacteria, significantly reducing the severity of current and future breakouts.

This procedure normally takes around 40 to 60 minutes.

Clinical data suggests that most patients find their acne will improve after the completion of about four treatments, two a week for two weeks. While many patients continue to improve in the months following treatment, some patients experience a plateau in their improvement. Repeated treatments in the distant future may be necessary to maintain results.
  • Most clients experience minimal discomfort; some may experience a minor stinging sensation of the skin as the Laser pulses are delivered.
  • We can offer topical anaesthetic cream to make treatments more comfortable.
  • Our advanced Laser system is equipped with a cooled sapphire window on the tip of the Laser scope to further protect and cool the skin.

Dr Bassi and his aesthetic team will discuss your medical history, including any drugs you are currently taking. The treatment area will be cleaned and a thin layer of gel will be applied. Your practitioner will glide the laser handpiece over the treatment area in a brushing motion as the laser light is pulsed through the skin.

Your face may appear slightly flushed and swollen, though these effects usually subside after a few hours or very rarely for a few days. Oil free sunscreen should be applied daily and if you wish, make-up may be applied immediately after treatment, as the skin's surface is not actually damaged by the laser.

Selston Cosmetic Clinic Experienced Aesthetic Team , headed by Dr S R Bassi Asst Member of the British Association of Cosmetic Doctors (B.A.C.D) and Member of the British Medical Laser Association (B.M.L.A) will discuss your requirements and expectations and advise a personalised treatment plan. We, along with our clients are delighted with the result this cost effective treatment can achieve.
