Most of us at some time in our lives experience acne. Form many people it is a short-term problem, but other people develop and more long-term and more severe acne. Acne often occurs when one of the skin’s natural oils – sebum – is unable to leave the skin because the hair follicle is blocked.  This could possibly result in blackhead or a whitehead and can lead to the growth of bacteria below the surface of the skin. Inflammation can occur, and the rupture of an inflamed area can lead to scarring.

Medication can help to reduce acne, but the AW3® procedure in combination with prescription medication has been clinically proven to accelerate the healing process for acne.

The AW3® treatment works by directing well-controlled pulses of light into the upper skin layer. The light is absorbed by the body’s own natural chemical – haemoglobin – in the blood vessels that feed the sebaceous glands. The AW3® treatment works by reducing the blood supply to the sebaceous gland, which slows down production of the body oil sebum.
The haemoglobin converts the light energy into heat, which damages the walls of the vessels supplying blood to the glands. This technique has the name “Selective Photothermolysis”.

The visible light produced by the AW3® systems is carefully controlled to produce the correct pulse length and right amount of energy to reduce the acne without damaging the surrounding tissue.



It takes approximately 5-10mins to treat the full face. Including consultation and preparation, it should take no longer than 15 mins. A typical course is between 4-6 sessions with three weeks apart.
