Skin Doctor SA can help you treat acne and acne scars

If you are concerned about the appearance of acne or acne scars, Skin Doctor SA in Semaphore can provide treatment to help resolve acne and reduce scarring. Dr Ron Louis is a medical practitioner with over 28 years’ experience treating a wide scope of skin concerns. Dr Ron Louis will listen to your skin concerns and help tailor a treatment program that is suited to your skin.

The cause of acne

Acne often begins presenting symptoms during adolescence, due to hormonal changes. The hormonal changes can enlarge and obstruct the sebaceous glands of the skin, which can then rupture into the surrounding dermal tissue. The rupturing causes inflammation, which can also be worsened by bacteria.

Ultimately this process causes painful, pustular inflamed lesions that can occur on a number of areas on the body, however they predominantly appear on the face.

Treating acne

When it comes to acne treatment, Dr Ron Louis has three main goals. These three steps involve resolving the underlying cause of the acne, preventing the inflammation and repairing the scarring. It is our belief that there is no one product of treatment that will ‘fix’ severe acne, rather a combination of treatments and products that can help make drastic improvements.

Skin Doctor SA is committed to staying up-to-date with the latest technologies in acne treatment. We have a range of state-of-the-art light-based treatment systems to treat acne in varying ranges of severity.
