Everyone will encounter acne at least once in their lifetime. Acne is a skin condition involving blackheads, pimples, red bumps and/or subcutaneous inflammation. Acne is caused by clogging of sebaceous glands and mainly occurs on the face and upper body. If left untreated, acne will also cause annoying scars.

De Huidkliniek has a wide range of treatment options. During a consultation , we will determine which treatment is best suited to your needs. You will immediately receive customized advice.

Acne treatment with peeling
Our skin contains about fifteen sebaceous glands on every square centimetre, which keep the skin supple. If a sebaceous gland gets clogged, a pimple will occur. With a peeling we keep the skin clean and thin, so that sebum cannot get clogged.
A peeling can also be applied on a temporarily troubled skin, due to hormonal changes for example. Many women suffer from pimples when changing birth control, in that case a peeling is the perfect treatment to calm down the skin.
Acne treatment with microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion is a peeling that removes dead skin cells and is carried out with a special device. The skin cells are removed by vacuuming the skin and simultaneously injecting fine crystals on the skin.
Microdermabrasion works in the epidermis (the top layer of skin). The treatment activates the blood circulation, which stimulates the production of new cells. Creating a vacuum is a very effective method to avoid clogging of sebaceous glands which cause acne.
Acne scarring treatment
Acne scars can be treated well, with or without a laser, at De Huidkliniek. As a specialist in laser treatments De Huidkliniek has a wide range of lasers. The CO2 laser, the ErbiumGlass laser and the Erbium:YAG laser, which are all suitable for scar reduction treatment . The CO2 laser is the most intensive laser we offer and therefore also the most effective.
Laser treatment generally causes more skin reaction than non-laser acne scar treatments. Dermapen, IPL, microdermabrasion and peelings are excellent treatments for reducing scars without using laser.
These treatments are often used for people who want to get rid of their mild acne scars without a long term skin reaction. During a consultation, which is free of obligation, we determine which treatment is most suitable.

Tips on acne
Unfortunately, you cannot completely prevent acne, but the following tips will apply to troubled skin:
- Do not touch acne! It can be tempting to pinch pimples, but try to avoid popping.
- Dab the pimple with a product based on Benzyl Peroxide and/or Salicylic Acid. Benzyl Peroxide kills the acne bacteria so that the pimple will dry out faster. Salicylic Acid has a sebum-dissolving and anti-inflammatory function so that the inflammatory reaction will reduce.
- If you still want to use make-up, it is best to choose a mineral foundation. A mineral foundation, like Lycogel, does not close off the skin completely. The skin will be provided with oxygen and will not clog, ideal for acne skin.
- Come and see us. If you want your acne to be treated, you can call and it is often possible to visit us on the same day, so that we can help you.
In addition to the treatments we offer in our clinics, it is important to use the right products at home. We sell 3 sets of products for acne in different price categories from €88,- in our webshop. Order the acne products here.

Acne treatment experience
“Peeling” During the consultation, my needs were being listened to attentively and a good treatment plan was drawn up afterwards. The first peeling, which we slowly built up, went well, then my skin therapist chose another (stronger) peeling and my skin responded very well to it! Now I am visiting the clinic once every 6 weeks and this keeps my skin looking great.
