Acne Treatment


What can you expect?


For acne treatment, a consultation is required in advance in which we ask questions about medical conditions, medication use, allergies, as this can affect the safety and effectiveness of the treatment. We determine which treatments are suitable for your skin type and skin problems. During the consultation you can also discuss any questions or concerns. We not only treat the symptoms, but also look for a solution to prevent new impurities.

Treatment Plan

We offer a variety of services for treating acne, reducing acne scars and improving skin quality. A personal treatment plan is drawn up. The following treatments can be used or combined during the treatment plan:
  • Acne Facial: We always start with a deep cleaning to manually remove inflammation and impurities. At the same time, we can see how the skin reacts to active ingredients. The treatment is for getting to know the skin and restoring the skin barrier before we move on to one of the deep facials.
  • Plason Facial: Uses revolutionary plasma technology. This is a non-invasive treatment that produces plasma, which is used to sterilize the skin and kill acne bacteria. Plasma targets only the bacteria responsible for acne, thereby helping to reduce inflammation and improve skin texture.
  • Aquapeel: This treatment uses a combination of vacuum, peeling and infusion of moisturizing products. This technique is suitable for reducing acne because it cleanses, exfoliates and refreshes the skin, which helps reduce inflammation and control acne.
  • Peels: We offer different types of peels for the treatment of acne and acne scars. These peels work by removing the top layer of the skin and stimulating the production of new skin cells. This improves the texture and color of the skin.
  • Microneedling: Microneedling is a treatment that is very suitable for reducing acne scars. This treatment uses tiny needles to make microscopic holes in the skin, which encourages the production of collagen and elastin. This process helps improve the texture and firmness of the skin, resulting in a reduction in the appearance of acne scars.
  • LED Light Therapy: LED (Light Emitting Diodes) Light Therapy is a proven effective treatment for acne. It uses specific wavelengths of blue light, red light and Near-infrared light to reduce sebum production and inhibit the growth of acne-causing bacteria, calm inflammation and speed up skin recovery. This treatment is painless and requires no recovery time.
Our skin specialists guide you during the treatment plan to choose an appropriate treatment. If necessary, the acne treatments can be combined with additional medication through the general practitioner or dermatologist.

Product advice

Skin care products play a vital role in controlling and reducing acne. Certain products can exacerbate irritation and inflammation, while others help reduce acne. We give personal product advice based on skin type and acne severity.

Using the right at-home products, along with treatments and knowing your personal triggers, help reduce acne and improve the overall health and appearance of the skin.
It is important to have regular consultations with your skin specialist for product advice and to make any necessary adjustments to your skin care routine.


Sometimes post-treatment acne can temporarily worsen before improving, which is known as a “purging.” This happens due to side-effects of the treatment, such as skin irritation, dryness or redness. It is important not to pick at the skin.

Follow the skin specialist’s instructions carefully and discuss any side effects. We can recommend adjustments to reduce side effects and promote skin regeneration.

Know that the results of acne treatments take time before the first results become visible. The goal is first to control the active acne before we move on to the treatment of residual spots and any acne scars. After each treatment, we evaluate how things are going and whether we need to adjust the treatment plan. If you are concerned about skin changes, consult your skin specialist for further evaluation and recommendations.
Acne is a common skin problem caused by blockage of the sebaceous glands. It can lead to inflammation, pimples and scars. We have different treatment methods available to treat acne.

In addition to the treatments, it is also important to have a healthy lifestyle and skin care routine. Together with the skin specialist, a personal treatment plan is drawn up to reduce the risk of developing or worsening acne.

Frequently asked questions

Acne is caused by a combination of factors, including blockage of the sebaceous glands, inflammation and bacteria. This can cause pimples, blackheads and pimples.

The sebaceous glands in our skin produce sebum to keep our skin supple and hydrated. But when the sebaceous glands become clogged, the sebum cannot find a way out and can lead to the development of acne.

In addition, hormonal changes, such as puberty or pregnancy, can increase sebum production and make acne worse. Other factors that can influence acne include genetic predisposition, stress, or the use of certain medications.

Bacteria, such as Propionibacterium acnes, can also contribute to acne breakouts by multiplying in the clogged sebaceous glands.

For this reason, it is important to combine a healthy skincare routine with treatments to control acne.

A good skin care routine helps reduce, or prevent worsening of acne. Below are some tips on product use and acne:

  • Cleansing: It is important to cleanse your skin daily with a gentle, non-comedogenic cleanser. This helps remove excess sebum, dead skin cells and other impurities.
  • Exfoliation: Exfoliating regularly removes dead skin cells, which helps prevent clogging of pores.
  • Hydration: It’s important to apply a moisturizer or serum to keep your skin hydrated. To keep the skin in good condition, drink at least 2 liters of water per day.
  • Protect: UV rays from the sun can dry and irritate the skin, which can increase sebum production and bacterial growth. This can lead to a worsening of acne. It is important to choose a product with a high SPF and broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection. In addition, SPFs sometimes contain ingredients that irritate the skin, such as chemical filters or alcohol. It is important to choose products that are suitable for sensitive skin and target acne treatment.
  • Products: Avoid using cosmetics, skincare or make-up that clog pores. These are often products that are occlusive (block pores) or contain comedogenic ingredients. Our skin specialists can provide personal product advice about which products may be suitable for your skin.

It is important to remember that a skin care routine alone is not always enough to treat acne. Treatments help to get acne under control, towards beautiful skin.

Several types of acne lesions are common including: comedones (white and black blackheads), papules (red pimples) and nodules (large cysts) and pustules (pimples). It is important to get the correct diagnosis of the type of acne in order to receive the most effective treatment. We can help determine the specific form of acne and draw up an appropriate treatment plan.

The sebaceous glands are located in the deeper layers of the skin and produce oil, known as sebum, to protect and moisturise the outer layers of skin. When the sebaceous glands become overactive, this can lead to an increase in sebum production and clogging of the pores. This clogging of the pores can occur at any time, but acne usually starts during puberty when the skin undergoes all kinds of changes due to hormones during puberty.

Below are the main causes of acne:

  • Hormones: Changes in hormones, such as during puberty, pregnancy, or menopause, can lead to an increase in sebum production, which can cause acne.
  • Genetics: Acne is a congenital condition and heredity plays a role in developing it.
  • Clogging of pores: The skin makes natural oils that clog the pores and lead to the growth of bacteria, which causes acne.
  • Inflammation: When bacteria gets into clogged pores, it can cause inflammation, which makes acne worse.
  • Nutrition: A diet high in sugar, dairy products and refined carbohydrates can lead to acne.
  • Stress: Stress can lead to changes in hormones and a decrease in the immune system, which can make acne worse.

Reimbursement for acne therapy

Acne treatments by skin specialists and skin therapists can be reimbursed by the additional insurance, depending on the specific policy. Acne therapy is not included in the basic insurance. It is important to check the reimbursement and conditions with your health insurer before treatment.
