What is Acne?

Acne is a very common condition and about 9 out of 10 teenagers will develop some degree of acne. In most cases, acne lasts about 4 or 5 years before resolving, however unfortunately it can continue to be a problem into and through the adult years. Acne may also present itself in later life, and is commonly known as ‘Late Onset Acne’, when there has been no history of spots in the teenage years. Acne ranges from a mild, to very severe condition, the effects of which cannot be underestimated. The severity is medically scored on what’s called the ‘Leeds Scale’ from 1 to 12.

What is Rosacea?

Rosacea is a common skin disorder and although it can be found in people of all ages, it does tend to occur more frequently on more mature skin.

Rosacea cannot be cured but it can be controlled. Untreated, its red-faced, acne like effects can result in psychological problems that can effect social and occupational activity. Rosacea is usually apparent due to redness on the cheeks, nose, chin or forehead, Small, visible blood vessels on the face, bumps or pimples and sometimes watery or irritated eyes can all be signifiers of this condition.

At Heath Counts we understand that living and coping with Acne and Rosacea can have a negative impact on your social, personal and professional relationships as well as reducing your own self-esteem. Our aim is to give you as much relevant and accurate data as possible to enable you to make an informed choice whether to go ahead with the N-Lite Pulsed Dye Treatment.


Treatments to help you

The N-Lite is effective from a multi-pronged approach, not only by killing acne bacteria instantly, but also by improving scarring by stimulating new collagen growth below the skin and breaking down the pigment which causes the redness and post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. In terms of using the correct wavelength of light to undermine acne and rosacea, the N-Lite is second to none, since both Dermalux lamps and IPL are much weaker light source and the wavelength to which acne bacteria best responds is 585nm. The N-Lite is also excellent at promoting a strong healing response in the skin. It will also stimulate new collagen to grow which will gradually smooth out skin and fill in atrophic depressions.
