Acne IPL/Laser Treatment


Acne can be caused by a variety of reasons, including changes in hormone levels, stress, poor skincare routine or habits. Your initial consultation with a practitioner will determine which of these is the cause of your acne.

Acne can occur as mild, moderate or severe acne depending on the type of blemishes your skin has:

  • Mild – blackheads and whiteheads
  • Moderate – blackheads, whiteheads, pustules and papules
  • Severe – Hard and painful nodules and cysts, often occurring on multiple areas of the body

The symptoms of acne are:

  • Excess oil
  • Increased skin cell turnover
  • Increased bacteria
  • Inflammation

Acne Treatment: Effective treatment uses a combination of Intense Pulse Light (blue), Salicylic Skin Peels and HydraFacial that help to destroy the bacteria and improve skin surface.

You will generally begin to notice a real difference just a few weeks after starting adult acne treatment as the acne begins to fade. The skin becomes smoother and clearer, and the scarring becomes significantly less noticeable. All of this will lead to an improvement in self-confidence and give you a new lease of life.

Michelle was great. She listened to what my concerns were and really understood what I was looking for. She ran through the treatments very clearly and helped me come to a decision about the best course to take. The treatment itself was very relaxing. Michelle explained what the treatments would feel like, so any odd sensations or noises didn’t come as a shock. Great experience. I will definitely return. Thank you.


I had my first appointment at Juliette Johns yesterday and I cannot fault the service I received. After walking in feeling very nervous and vulnerable all the staff made me feel at ease and relaxed with their calm approach and expertise. I am looking forward to starting the process in a few weeks time.


Juliette was friendly and honest. It is clear she values her customers and passionate about her work. She was clear in explaining the treatment, which was a great success. I am so happy with my results. Beautiful clinic.

Frequently asked questions


  1. Does the treatment hurt?

    The treatment is not painful and at most you may notice slight discomfort.

  2. Are there any side effects?

    Depending on your skin type and the area in question, there is redness and swelling, that feels like mild sunburn, for up to 2-3 days after treatment.

  3. What is the aftercare?

    Applying cool packs to the skin for the first few hours after treatment will help reduce any discomfort. Aloe Vera gel can also be helpful.

    Use SPF 50 and avoid sun exposure. This is essential to avoid the risk of hyper or darker pigmentation.
