Has mild to moderate acne led to you developing acne scars? Is persistent oily skin clogging your pores and causing more acne to form? If so, it might be time to look at acne treatment in Essex.
Acne is a common skin condition that affects people of different ages, not just teenagers. It is the result of an overproduction of oil in the skin, which leads to clogged pores, redness and inflammation. This can also lead to acne scarring, which if left too long, can be difficult to treat.

Through an in-depth consultation, we get to know you and more about your skin health. This helps us find the right acne treatment for you so that you leave us not only looking good but feeling good too.

What causes oily skin?
Oily skin forms when overactive sebaceous glands produce too much sebum. Sebum is an oily substance made up of fats and waxes that helps keep the skin moist and supple. When these glands produce too much sebum, it can start to sit on the surface of the skin, which results in oily skin.
Factors that cause skin to become oily
- Genetics can affect how much oil your skin produces
- Lifestyle factors such as diet and stress levels
- The environment you are in – too much humidity or exposure to cold weather
- Changes in hormones during puberty or pregnancy
- Certain medications
How does oily skin cause acne?
When dead skin cells, bacteria and sebum start to block your pores or hair follicles, acne forms. Acne can appear across the face, jawline, neck, chest or back. This is where you have the most sebaceous glands.
You want to look for a treatment that kills acne-causing bacteria and help to reduce inflammation and redness.
Acne scars occur when inflammation of the skin resulting from acne leaves behind scarring. This can lead to discolouration, pigmentation, and raised or depressed areas on the skin.
It is important to understand what type of acne scarring you have. This is where our skin experts at Time Clinic can help. We can assess your skin and recommend a tailored treatment plan to help reduce the appearance of your acne scars. Treatments may include skin peels, microneedling or skin resurfacing treatment.
What are the best acne treatments in Essex?
Whether you are looking to treat your acne or reduce acne scarring, we can help you achieve brighter and clearer-looking skin. At our clinic in Essex, we offer the following types of treatments for acne and acne scars.
Chemical peels are a popular treatment for acne and other skin issues. They work by applying a chemical solution to the skin, which penetrates the top layer of your skin to remove dead skin cells and encourage natural exfoliation. A course of skin peels can help you see skin that is fresher and smoother than before.
Some chemical peels can also help kill acne-causing bacteria and help regulate oil production. This helps to control breakouts and gives you clear skin that looks healthy. Deeper skin peels can also help treat sun damage, acne scars and skin discolouration.
Three main types of chemical peels
Light chemical peels – help to refresh and brighten the skin to treat mild acne, uneven skin tones and fine lines and wrinkles.
Medium chemical peels – go deeper into the skin to get rid of dead skin cells. They also help treat mild acne, wrinkles and uneven skin tones.
Deeper chemical peels – the most powerful skin peels. They can help to treat moderate to severe acne, sun damage and boxcar scars and mild rolling scars. These are the two most common types of acne scarring
During your initial consultation, a member of our team will talk you through which chemical peel will be right for your skin and skin condition.
You will need a course of chemical peels to see clearer and brighter skin. You may also benefit from combining chemical peels with another treatment such as microneedling.
Secret RF microneedling treatment
Secret RF microneedling combines the use of traditional microneedling to improve the appearance of the skin with radio frequency energy. This helps the treatment target deep layers of your skin to give you optimum results.
High-frequency acne treatments help to increase oxygen to the skin, improve the tone and texture of your skin and can help treat problematic skin. It also helps to stimulate collagen and elastin production, which plumps and firms your skin.
We can tailor this treatment to target your specific skin issues. This includes acne scarring, improving your skin texture or reducing sebum production that leads to oily-looking skin.
iS Fire and Ice Facial
Fire and ice facials are a type of resurfacing facial treatment that uses both hot and cold elements to help improve the appearance of your skin tone and texture. This treatment can help with clearing up acne-prone skin, reduce redness and brighten your complexion.
Fire and ice facials use a combination of two professional treatment masques with skin care products from iS clinical. They provide you with a more comprehensive facial experience to provide an effective way to improve your skin’s appearance
They are more gentle than chemical peels, which means that there is no downtime and anyone who is pregnant or breastfeeding can have this treatment.
