  • 9 out of 10 women say acne has a negative impact on self-perception
  • 36% of women over 25 say they get comments because of their skin problems

There are now professional beauty treatments which can be used to improve acne.

ClearSkin is a laser acne treatment available at Cosmedics’ Putney Beauty Salon. The revolutionary system uses non-ablative laser to destroy the overactive bacteria causing the inflammation within the skin, then exfoliates the skin to remove unwanted substances from the pores, leaving skin intensely clean. The laser also stimulates skin healing, leaving it healthier and more radiant.
