About our Acne Treatments in Leeds and Wakefield

The NHS report that as many as 95% of people in the UK are affected by acne or pigmentation. It is most common on the face, back and chest. If you are affected, take a look at what NuEra Aesthetics Leeds can do to help.

What is Acne?

Acne is a common skin condition characterized by red, pimple-like bumps and clogged pores on the face, neck, chest, and back. It occurs when hair follicles become clogged with oil and dead skin cells, leading to the growth of bacteria. This can result in inflammation, redness, and if not treated it will lead to scarring.


What are the different types of Acne?

  1. Acne vulgaris: the most common type of acne, typically affecting the face, neck, chest, and back.

  2. Cystic acne: a severe form of acne that forms deep, painful, and inflamed cysts.

  3. Hormonal acne: acne that is triggered by changes in hormone levels, often seen during puberty, menstruation, pregnancy, or menopause.

  4. Adult acne: acne that occurs in adults, typically due to hormonal changes, stress, or skincare products.

  5. Blackheads: a type of acne that occurs when a clogged pore opens up and becomes dark in color.

  6. Whiteheads: a type of acne that occurs when a clogged pore is closed and forms a white bump.

  7. Papules: small, red, inflamed bumps that are a sign of mild to moderate acne.

  8. Pustules: similar to papules, but with a visible white or yellow pus-filled center.

  9. Nodules: large, hard, and painful acne bumps that are deep within the skin.

Which Acne Treatments are offered at NuEra Aesthetics Leeds and Wakefield

We offer different treatments for Acne and Acne Scarring

  1. HydraFacial: the innovative, non-invasive facial treatment. With its advanced technology, HydraFacial deeply cleanses, exfoliates, and hydrates your skin to leave you with a glowing complexion. HydraFacial can be used to treat many skin conditions including Acne. The HydraFacial uses different Glycolic, Lactic and Salicylic peels to encourage collagen production and to restore the skin  glow.
  2. Dermapen: Dermapen is a minimally invasive procedure that uses fine needles to penetrate the skin and promote the production of collagen. This treatment can improve the appearance of acne scars and is typically performed in a series of 3 to 6 sessions, spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart.

  3. Laser Genesis: Laser Genesis is a non-invasive laser treatment that uses heat energy to stimulate collagen production and improve the texture and appearance of skin. This treatment can also help reduce redness and improve the appearance of acne scars. Typically, 4 to 6 sessions are recommended, spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart.

  4. Medical Peels: Medical peels are topical treatments that use a combination of acids and enzymes to exfoliate the skin and improve its texture and appearance. They can help reduce the appearance of acne scars and improve skin tone and texture. Typically, a series of 3 to 6 sessions is recommended, spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart.

What can I expect from each Acne Treatment?

After each pigmentation treatment, the specific effects will depend on the type of treatment you received. However, in general, you can expect the following:

  • HydraFacial: the treated area will feel clean, clear, and a will normally add a rosey glow to the face
  • Dermapen: The treated area will appear red immediately after the procedure but will fade significantly over the following hours. You may experience some redness and swelling, which should subside within a few days.

  • Chemical Peels: The treated skin may be red, swollen, and tender for a few days after the procedure. You may also experience some flaking or peeling of the skin as it heals.

  • Laser Genesis: The treated area may be red and swollen for a few days after the procedure. You may also experience some blistering, scabbing, or crusting.

It’s important to follow aftercare instructions provided by your dermatologist or esthetician to ensure proper healing and to minimize the risk of side effects.

How Many Sessions are needed

To ensure the best results, a series of 3 to 6 sessions is typically recommended, spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. Proper preparation and aftercare are also essential to achieving optimal results and preventing potential side effects.


Is there any preparation I must do to my skin?

For pigmentation treatments we recommend you prepare the skin with our pigmentation home care kits from Mesoestetics. The  Brightening home care kits will prep the skin to achieve quicker results and prevent pigmentation to resurface.

Frequently Asked Questions

Laser uses energy from a specific light wavelength to precisely target hair follicles (or more specifically the melanin within them). This will destroy the hair follicle preventing it from growing again.

The Lumenis Lightsheer® Desire™ is a medical grade Diode Laser, which is the result of many years of scientific research by Lumenis, who are leaders in Surgical and Aesthetic Medicine. The laser we operate in our clinic known as the Lumenis Lightsheer® Deisre™ uses patented suction technology making it virtually PAIN FREE and more effective at reaching the hair follicle and the melanin.

The Lightsheer® Desire™ is one of the only FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approved laser hair removal systems available worldwide, therefore it is widely regarded as the ‘gold standard’ in hair removal, delivering far more superior results to most other lasers and IPL systems.

This is required before any treatment, even if you have had laser treatments at other clinics before. Our therapist will test a small area of your skin with the laser (areas tested will depend on which areas you want treated). This will give us important information about any possible reactions that may occur and will help guide us to the best treatment settings for your skin and hair. Not only will you achieve better results but you will also ensure you are being kept as safe as possible from any adverse reactions. Very few people have problems with the laser and are normally free to go ahead with treatment 48 hours later.

The majority of people and skin types will be suitable for laser hair removal which is very safe when delivered by our highly trained and professional staff. Certain small groups of people may have conditions that may make it unsuitable. You can either call us to discuss this or visit us for a free consultation.

No. Traditionally laser and IPL hair removal systems have been known to be painful however this has all changed with the advanced technology used within our laser systems. The vacuum on the headpiece reduces the pain sensation making it virtually pain free. You will feel a light pinch and a small amount of heat but that’s all. You can get an idea of how the laser works and feels during your free consultation and patch test.

This varies for each individual. Normally six sessions is the minimum number required and this is why we sell packages of six +. Some people may need more, particularly if you suffer from certain medical conditions such as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). During your consultation our trained therapists can assess your medical history, skin type, hair distribution, density and thickness and give you a better idea of what to expect.

The majority of our customers see results from the first session. Usually within 2 weeks of your treatment, the hairs tend to fall out. Regrowth will be slow and patchy and it will take a few weeks for the hair regrowth process. Eventually after a few treatments the follicule demolishes leaving you with hair free skin. In most cases, you should see 25% to 35% hair reduction with each treatment session, with up to 95% total hair reduction after only 6-8 sessions.

Certainly. Our procedures are designed to be pain free/scar free, leaving you free to return into work looking truly supreme.
