Could Witch Hazel Help Your Acne?

acne treatmentWitch Hazel for skin care was a top trending search in Pinterest in 2018. 

So what is it all about and why is it becoming so popular?

Dr Ross Perry, founder of Cosmedics Skin Clinics, explains:

“People find it effective to outbreaks of acne and general skin inflammation which are more common nowadays due to lifestyles, pollution and stress on the skin.”

“Witch hazel can be used on its own or as part of other ingredients within a skincare regime.”

However, he warns that this is not necessarily a miracle cure for acne for all patients;

“It can be a bit of trial to see what works and does not cause too much irritation. Each person can react differently so you need to careful when first trying it.”

Acne Treatments

For moderate or severe acne, it is worth considering a professional acne treatment – especially if it has gone on a long time and not responded to skin care lotions, creams or serums.

Cosmedics Beauty based in Harley Street and Putney offers a host of potential solutions to acne using the latest technology and products.

NEW Celluma LED Light Therapy

The latest acne treatment at Cosmedics Beauty, London uses no lasers nor chemicals to improve the skin.

Celluma uses selected LED (Light Emitting Diode) light waves to improve a range of skin conditions by stimulating the skin’s own healing and regeneration. In ‘blue light’ mode, LED works to destroy the bacteria known to cause acne and inflammations (P. Acnes).

This combines well with NIR (near-infrared) treatment, which works to reduce inflammation and accelerate the skin’s repair and renewal processes.


ClearSkinTM Laser Acne Treatment

The laser system is specially designed to tackle 3 of the problems that cause acne:

  1. excess sebum
  2. dead skin cells
  3. bacteria

ClearSkinTM can be used on mild, moderate and even severe acne. Results show an average 80% acne clearance and lasting results after a course of treatment.


Cosmeceutical Skincare

Professional skincare products offer formulations which are simply not available over the counter. With regular use, active ingredients can make a real difference to the appearance of the skin.

Exfoliation Treatments

Chemical peels or microdermabrasion can be very helpful in reducing the sebum where acne bacteria breed, as well as whisking away debris and dead skin cells. By stimulating the skin’s recovery, exfoliation helps the skin to heal itself, generating new skin cells for brighter and more radiant skin.
