Managing outbreaks of acne can be a draining and time-consuming process. Acne is a condition that affects both teenagers and adults and is one of the most common skin disorders treated by medical professionals throughout the UK. As an adult, suffering from these breakouts can be embarrassing, however, as a teenager, this embarrassment can be more severe and will often lead to anxiety and loss of confidence.
TheraClear acne treatment is a multi-step procedure that is different from prescription medications and other solutions. TheraClear treats acne by addressing its many different causes and symptoms, offering long-lasting results that can empower you to feel confident and happy with your skin.
TheraClear can be a useful tool for eliminating blackheads, inflammation, hyperpigmentation, redness and cystic acne – it can also help prevent excess sebum production which thereby reduces the chances of future breakouts.
How Does It Work?
TheraClear treatment works by extracting all of the surplus sebum from your pores. A broadband light, often used in Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy, then flashes on the skin and destroys the compounds that cause acne. The combination of these two methods results in a fast and visible reduction of acne in all target areas.
TheraClear is an effective treatment as the vacuum it uses is able to remove sebum trapped deep within the skin, something which cannot be achieved via traditional methods of treatment. TheraClear can be utilised regardless of skin type or age and can be an effective tool in treating a range of skin conditions.
Unlike other acne treatments, TheraClear is pain-free with little to no pain relief required at any stage. It also guarantees no downtime, so you can go back to work or whichever activity you have planned just minutes after your treatment has finished.
Am I Suitable For Treatment?
When it comes to acne, there are various different methods that are available when considering treatment. These methods vary in effectiveness from patient to patient, yet TheraClear is an advanced treatment that is suitable for almost all ages and skin types.
As with any light-based treatment, there is always a small risk of inflammation – this is why a consultation must be undertaken prior to the start of your treatment. During this time, our professionals will determine if your skin is suitable for treatment, discuss the results you can expect to achieve and answer any questions you may have.

TheraClear is virtually pain-free with no anaesthetic or pain medication required during treatment. However, as with any light-based treatment, there is a small risk of inflammation which can cause slight discomfort for certain patients.
There is a high chance you will be able to see visible results after just one treatment. For most patients, significant results start to become apparent after two or three treatments.
Each patient and skin type requires a different number of treatments, however, the average patient usually has between six and eight treatments which are usually spaced approximately a week apart.
After TheraClear treatment, there is little to no downtime and a very small risk of inflammation. There is also a minor risk of bruising but this is very rare and most symptoms normally clear in one to two days.
