Effectively treating acne is the first stage to avoiding or preventing acne scarring in the future. Hervey Bay Skin use industry leading elos plus technology. Acne treatment combines two energies; photodynamic therapy with bi-polar radio frequency (RF). Post elos plus treatment, Dr Omowaire can prescribe Obagi medical grade skincare. This forms a complete acne treatment, specifically formulated for normal to oily skin to help treat acne where it starts.
Avoiding acne scars by effectively treating active acne is the preferred treatment methodology. If you currently have acne scars on your face or body, Hervey Bay Skin use industry leading Sublative treatment.

Many patients feel a warm, prickly sensation in the treatment area. Numbing creams can be used, if necessary, to reduce any discomfort you might feel.
Usually, 3 treatments are needed 4-6 weeks apart, but the total number of treatments will depend on the skin condition of the patient and how many areas need to be treated.
The full benefit of these treatments are seen up to 3 months after the final treatment. Acne may require maintenance treatments every 6 months. You may notice improvements in the appearance of fine lines, pore size, sun damage or broken capillaries and skin texture within a few weeks of treatment.
We recommend waiting one month between treatments as this allows your body to construct more collagen and elastin matrix in the epidermal and dermal layers.
The skin will have very tiny pinhole like marks, where the treatment occurred and the skin will have redness similar to a light sunburn. The skin is hot for 3 hours after the treatment, this will subside and the redness reduces within 24 hours. The small marks will show up as tiny micro scabs and can be covered with make-up. You can return to work the day after the treatment. Active exercise and heat needs to be avoided the day of the treatment.
Both are very safe. They have been tested in controlled clinical trials and has been shown to produce no serious side effects aside from some pain and redness, which calms down within a couple of days. There is no risk of scarring, infection, burns or changes in skin colour that can occur with lasers. This is the safest treatment for even the darkest skin types, as radiofrequency energy is “colour-blind”.
