It has become a an issue for not just teenagers but women and men too.

Our team of experienced skin practitioners will draw up a treatment plan to address your individual skin concerns.
Acne Scarring Treatments
Most of us aspire to having clear skin but the reality is that many of us struggle with blemishes including blackheads, whiteheads, pimples and acne.
The unfortunate aftermath is the scarring that acne can leave behind.
Known as ‘post inflammatory hyper-pigmentation’ these marks are reddish or brown in
colour, and can range from mild to severe.
There are multiple forms:
Scars that have a gradual dip.
Small depressions into the skin.
Scars that are deep and small in size.
At Esthetique by Cherelle, we have a number of treatments available for acne
scarring including medical grade peels, prescription skin care and microneedling.
We understand that each person’s skin is unique, and this is why we suggest
you book in for a skin consultation with one of our skin practitioners who can put together a tailor made treatment plan.
Ageing skin and wrinkles go side by side and you couldn’t have one without the other.
As we grow older, a decrease in collagen and elastin cause frown lines and crow’s feet to develop and they deepen as the years go by.
Environmental factors like UV exposure, lifestyle choices, smoking and air pollution also contribute to causing skin to look tired and dull.
Esthetique by Cherelle has a wide range of treatments available that are designed to reduce the appearance of ageing, soften and prevent wrinkles and to boost collagen production.
The aim is to leave skin looking radiant, fuller and more youthful.
What is Pigmentation?
Pigmentation is a dark discolouration on the skin, which usually suggests that too much melanin (pigment) has been produced.
It usually occurs in concentrated spots or patches.
Factors such as the UVA rays in sunshine trigger your pigment-making cells, known as melanocytes, and they pump out melanin to protect the skin.
Although too much time spent in the sun is the leading cause of pigmentation, it can also be triggered by hormones or birth control medication, acne or inflammation.
While the condition is not harmful, it can be difficult to treat.
Severe pigmentation can be very difficult to cover with make-up.
Hyperpigmentation is not necessarily permanent.
The effects can actually be reversed with a good skincare regime and course of treatments.
Many people struggle with skin redness and sensitivity.
People suffer from issues such as tight, itchy, hot or painful skin.
There are a number of potential causes including genetics, lifestyle or something as simple as using the wrong skincare.
There are two distinct sensitivities.
Immunogenic Inflammation happens when skin responds to external irritations and Neurogenic Inflammation begins in the nerves and nervous system.
As skin is a living shield this condition needs to be treated to restore balance and comfort.
What is Rosacea?
Rosacea is a chronic and common skin condition that causes redness and visible blood vessels in the face. It can also produce small red, pus-filled bumps.
No one knows what causes rosacea, but experts believe it may be due to a combination of genetic and environmental factors.
It’s estimated that about 10% of the people are affected by rosacea and flare-ups can affect their quality of life.
Treatment and good skin care can help.
