Discover the best acne treatments available at Me Clinic

If you’ve tried over-the-counter acne products for several weeks and haven’t noticed the improvements you hoped for, a Me Clinic practitioner can help in a number of ways.

  • Stop the progression of acne
  • Avoid scarring or other skin damage caused by acne
  • Make acne scars less noticeable

In less severe cases of acne, your practitioner may recommend medications that reduce oil production in your skin. Medication can also treat bacterial infections and swelling. The type of treatment will be prescribed according to a patient’s age, type of acne, the severity of acne symptoms, and the patient’s preferred treatment plan. All this will be discussed with your Me Clinic practitioner during your initial consultation.

Me Clinic has more than 35 years of experience in treating a wide range of skin conditions. We are a leading skin clinic in Australia with premises in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, the Gold Coast, and major regional centres.

Causes of acne

The pores in your skin are connected to oil glands (sebaceous glands) that produce a substance called sebum. The sebum can build up, and when the build-up combines with dead skin cells the result is blackheads, whiteheads or blind pimples. With further skin debris and bacteria accumulation, the area can become inflamed and turn into acne.

How do we treat Acne?

We offer a comprehensive suite of treatment options for effectively dealing with acne and other debilitating conditions. Me Clinic procedures for targeting severe acne include:


What to expect when having an acne treatment 

A no-obligation consultation with one of our experienced physicians, clinicians, or an Aesthetician is the first step. Your skin will be assessed for the most suitable treatments.

Common topical prescription medications

  • Retinoids and retinoid-like drugs are available as creams, gels, and lotions.
  • Antibiotics with benzoyl peroxide kill excess skin bacteria and reduce inflammation.
  • Azelaic acid and salicylic acid creams or gels.
  • Dapsone gel.

Non-invasive cosmetic procedures

  • LED (light-emitting diode) light therapy.
  • Chemical peel using salicylic acid, glycolic acid or retinoic acid.
  • Drainage and extraction using special tools to gently remove whiteheads and blackheads.
  • Steroid injections are also used for the treatment of nodular and cystic lesions.

How laser works for acne scars

Laser resurfacing is a facial rejuvenation procedure. Laser treatment is an effective treatment of acne that can improve the skin’s appearance and treat minor facial flaws. It can be performed by:

Ablative laser: This type of laser removes the outer layer of the skin (epidermis) and heats the underlying skin (dermis). This stimulates collagen growth and improves skin texture and tone. In time, the treated area becomes smoother and tighter.

Nonablative laser: This is a less aggressive approach that also stimulates collagen growth. It involves a shorter recovery time, although the results and skin improvements can be less noticeable.

Both methods can be delivered with a fractional laser. These lasers were developed to shorten recovery time and reduce the risk of side effects.

How LED light therapy works

LED light therapy treatments work to soothe inflamed or infected skin tissue while also stimulating the acne-prone skin’s natural regeneration process.

Blue light helps by fighting acne-causing bacteria, calming inflation, and improving cell turnover.

LED laser treatments are painless and take only around 20 minutes. The number of light therapy treatments required will vary according to your skin type, the extent of acne experienced, and the underlying condition that causes acne.

Preparing your skin for acne treatment

Acne is a common skin condition that can result in a loss of confidence and a negative body image. Laser treatment and medical peels are a popular Me Clinic skin treatment to help eliminate acne flare-ups, acne scars, rosacea, melasma, and other skin conditions such as hyperpigmentation. Here are some steps to take before acne treatment to ensure the best possible recovery and treatment results.

  • Limit your sun exposure and use non-oily sunscreen
  • Stop smoking
  • Avoid certain skin care products and counterproductive skincare routines
  • Avoid other skin treatments in the same area until it is recommended to do so
  • Take recommended medication to prevent complications
  • Arrange for a ride home if you are going to be sedated during the procedure

Side effects of acne treatments

Laser resurfacing can cause side effects that may include:

  • Redness, swelling, itching and sometimes pain
  • Bacterial, viral, or fungal infection
  • Changes in skin colour
  • A slight risk of scarring

Acne Treatment FAQs

Every patient is different, and that’s why Australians choose Me Clinic. We employ leading Australian practitioners and clinicians who can discuss the most effective treatment for you during your initial consultation.

Acne most often develops when a natural skin lubricant called sebum and dead skin cells plug a person’s hair follicles. If bacteria trigger inflammation, it can result in more severe acne and acne scars.
