How to successfully treat adult Acne at Skin Renewal Paarl


“A-Z The building blocks to become the best version of yourself”

While it would be great if growing up meant saying good bye to breakouts, it’s unfortunately not a given. Happily, Skin Renewal in Paarl has been successfully treating adult acne for years.

If you’re dealing with the occasional breakout but wish to beat it, pop into your nearest branch where one of our very knowledgeable therapists can help you create a skincare routine to keep your pores clean and clear. If, however, your acne is more severe, we suggest you make an appointment to chat to one of our highly-skilled doctors. They’ll perform a full evaluation and can prescribe topical and oral medicine should you require it. They’ll also be able to suggest one of our Acne Solutions treatment packages to best suit the severity of your condition as well as your budget.

Serious solutions

At Skin Renewal, we believe that the best way to target acne is via a 3D approach, using not just one treatment but several that enhance each other’s effects. Thus, our Acne Solutions packages make use of many modalities and these are just a few that could be used to clear your skin.


We offer a wide selection of acne-focused peels so you’ll be sure to find one to suit. These include a Beta Salicylic Acid Peel, Azelan Peel, Extraction Peel (a combination of a Beta Salicylic Peel and Deep Cleanse Facial) and TCA peels.

The great thing about peels is that they improve active acne lesions and also go a long way towards treating the damage they can leave in their wake, be it scarring or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH).

Lasers and light

There are many lasers that can be used to treat acne and Laser Genesis is one of them. It can be used on skin of all colours and types and is a very safe, non-invasive, no downtime treatment can shrink your oil glands, reduce inflammation in active acne and minimise the size of your pores while improving acne scarring and PIH.

Another device worth looking at is Titan. It reduces inflammation, kills acne-causing bacteria in deep painful nodules and helps prevent scarring.

Lastly, don’t discount the healing power of photodynamic therapy (PDT). Exposing your skin to anti-inflammatory red light and a bacteria-killing blue can go a long way towards improving the look of acne and can be combined with any other treatment.


Carboxytherapy involves injecting CO2 gas just beneath the surface of the skin and it can do a lot for acne patients. If injected just around lesions, it can reduce their size while injecting into an acne scar can improve its appearance.

Another way needles can help? Injecting corticosteroids into acne nodules can reduce their size by decreasing inflammation.
