 Understanding and Treating Acne at South William Clinic

Acne affects millions of people worldwide, including a significant number in Ireland.
While typically associated with adolescence, acne can persist into adulthood or even emerge for the first time in adult years. Recent studies indicate a notable prevalence of adult-onset acne in Ireland, affecting up to 40% of women and 20% of men between the ages of 25 and 40. This rising trend highlights the importance of comprehensive and individualised treatment approaches.

At South William Clinic, we understand that acne is a complex condition and provide a comprehensive approach to treatment. Our strategy goes beyond traditional prescriptions, such as isotretinoin or antibiotics, by diving into the root causes and contributing factors of acne. This comprehensive method ensures not only effective clearance but also sustainable skin health.

Holistic Assessment and Personalised Care
Our initial assessment involves a thorough functional evaluation of each patient. We
consider lifestyle factors, dietary habits, gut health, and the potential need for
supplementation. Emerging research highlights the connection between diet and
acne, suggesting that high-glycemic foods, dairy, and certain dietary fats can
exacerbate the condition. By addressing these elements, we aim to reduce systemic inflammation and improve overall skin health from within.
Moreover, we meticulously review each patient's skincare regimen. South William Clinic offers a diverse range of tailored skincare products designed to meet the specific needs of different skin types and acne severities. This personalised skincare strategy ensures that patients receive optimal care suited to their unique skin profiles.

Advanced In-Clinic Treatments
To expedite the clearance of acne, we incorporate advanced in-clinic treatments.
One effective method is intralesional injections, which directly target inflamed cysts
and nodules, providing rapid relief and reducing the risk of scarring. Medical-grade
peels are another cornerstone of our treatment protocol. These peels exfoliate the
skin, unclog pores, and promote cell turnover, helping to clear existing acne and
prevent future breakouts.

Furthermore, we are proud to champion cutting-edge laser treatments such as BBL
(BroadBand Light) Forever Clear. This innovative technology uses specific
wavelengths of light to target acne-causing bacteria, reduce inflammation, and
stimulate the skin's natural healing processes. The result is clearer skin with fewer breakouts and improved texture.

Addressing Acne Scarring
Our commitment to patient care extends beyond acne clearance to include
comprehensive scar management. Acne can leave behind various types of scars,
from shallow depressions to deep, pitted marks. Radio frequency and microneedling is a great treatment to plump out scars. We also utilise resurfacing lasers that promote collagen production and skin remodeling. This treatment gradually improves skin texture, minimises scar appearance, and helps patients achieve smooth, clear skin. At South William Clinic we regularly combine treatments such as radio frequency, microneedling and laser in order to optimise the results.

Long-Term Care and Support
At South William Clinic, our treatments are not just about immediate results but
about long-term skin health. We provide ongoing support and guidance to help
patients maintain their results and protect the investment in their skin. Our
specialised team educates patients on effective home care practices, including
appropriate skincare routines, sun protection, and lifestyle adjustments that support
healthy skin.

We believe in developing a lasting partnership with our patients. Our approach
ensures continuous monitoring and adjustment of treatment plans as needed,
helping patients navigate their skincare journey with confidence. We understand that managing acne is a dynamic process, and we are dedicated to being there every step of the way, from initial consultation to long-term maintenance.

At South William Clinic, we offer more than just a solution to acne; we provide a
comprehensive, personalised, and holistic approach to skincare. By addressing the
underlying causes of acne and offering advanced in-clinic treatments alongside
tailored skincare regimens, we help our patients achieve and maintain clear, healthy
skin. Our commitment to long-term care ensures that our patients not only reach
their desired outcomes but continue to enjoy the results for years to come.
