Reduce the Appearance of Adult Acne

Adult acne affects a significant number of Irish men and women and cause painful and unsightly breakouts throughout adulthood.


The world-renowned Image Skincare range is now available at Thérapie clinics nationwide and one of the numerous treatments available is the Acne Lift Treatment.


A potent blend of Alpha and Beta Hydroxy Acids are applied to the skin to reduce inflammation and the appearance of acne.


Suitable for all kinds of adult acne, the Acne Lift Treatment at Thérapie improves skin texture after one 30 minute treatment.

What causes adult acne?

Adult acne is caused by an over-production of sebum, which is the oily substance produced in the sebaceous glands under the skin.


This can be related to a hormone imbalance, most commonly when there is a high level of androgen hormones or estrogen in the body.


Excess sebum clogs pores and traps dirt and bacteria which causes skin to become inflamed and lead to acne breakouts and scarring.


The Acne Lift Treatment at Thérapie helps unclog pores while using Alpha and Beta Hydroxy Acid to neutralize bacteria and minimize sebum production.

How can I reduce acne breakouts?

Acne sufferers can minimize the number of breakouts by adopting a healthy skin regimen to help keep skin clean and clear.


Wash your face both morning and night with warm, but not hot water which can cause the skin to become dry and irritated.


Avoid scrubbing which can disrupt the surface of the skin and cause blocked and already-sore pimples to become more inflamed.


It is important to wash away dirt and debris that has accumulated during the day, but make sure to use your hands instead of a cloth which can harbor bacteria and trigger a breakout.
