It is suggested that up to 85% of us may get acne in one way, shape or form during our lifetime. Most of us will remember our puberty years when we would wake up to the horror sight of a pimple or two on our faces as we look in the mirror to get ready for school. However, for some it can be a more serious skin condition. It is also not restricted to teenagers with many adults carrying the issue into their 20’s and beyond. There are so many skin treatments available nowadays but one of them is particularly good for getting rid of acne. The Excel V by Cutera is used by clinics around Australia and gets some amazing results, even on those cases that may not have been treatable with other methods.

Why do we get acne?

A person’s genetics is the biggest factor when looking at why they might get acne, however there are many other contributors such as:

  • Puberty
  • Poor nutrition – a bad diet with lots of sugar and processed foods is the best way to bring on the pimples
  • Stress
  • Overweight
  • Pregnancy
  • Stress
  • During menstruation (yep, us girls will notice that pimples have a nasty habit of coming out at that time of the month).

Anyone with acne will know that there’s a plethora of treatment suggestions out there. However, not all of them work. Many of the more natural options such as tea tree don’t work on the more severe cases of acne, and it can be really devastating for the patient leading to social anxiety and self-image issues. Many of the treatments prescribed by doctors can be chemical based and antibiotics can have side effects. So, what is the solution?

Get rid of your acne with Excel V Laser Genesis laser therapy

Excel V is an advanced laser technology device that can be used for a variety of skin conditions including acne. It uses pulses of light energy to penetrate the skin to destroy the overactive glands and reduce inflammation associated with acne. It shrinks the oil glands producing the oil contributing to the outbreaks so is a long term solution. Not only that, it helps with the scarring often left by severe acne by stimulating the production of collagen and reducing both the redness and uneven skin tone that is a trademark of severe acne.

Even Kendall Jenner gets acne

Earlier this year Kendall Jenner made headlines not for the beautiful dress she wore to the 2018 Golden Globes but because of the acne she was obviously suffering from. Her dermatologist spoke out afterwards naming Excel V Laser Genesis as one of the treatments that works long term to combat acne.

So if you or someone in your family suffers from this extremely common skin condition, you might like to check out Excel V. It is available in clinics around Australia.
