Acne and rosacea are among the skin diseases that can cause a significant reduction in quality of life. Such skin changes can occur at any age, predominantly during puberty, pregnancy and menopause. We would like to help you overcome the disease and treat your suffering so that you can feel comfortable in your skin again.
Here you will find all the important information about the treatment of acne and rosacea (or couperose) in our modern dermatological private practice in Berlin-Charlottenburg.
There are several therapies that can lead to lasting success. However, every patient, every skin as well as the severity of the disease are different, so the exact treatment plan must always be decided on a case-by-case basis.
A combination of thorough skin cleansing, drug therapy and laser therapy and/or radiofrequency needling is often considered promising. The use of certain creams and ointments can also be useful. Parallel to the treatment, regular check-ups are carried out.
The basis of the treatment is always a precise examination of the skin and a diagnosis. We apply all therapies according to guidelines. The faster a targeted treatment is carried out, the better the chances of success and the fewer secondary diseases and complications (e.g. scars) have to be treated.
The costs for the consultation on acne, rosacea and other skin diseases, within the consultation hours in our private practice, start from 70 Euros. The further costs depend on the type and scope of the required therapy. Of course, we will inform you transparently about all prices and cost factors in advance.
In laser acne treatment, a so-called fractional laser emits light pulses onto the skin. These remove the scar tissue and at the same time stimulate collagen formation, replacing the damaged skin with new and healthy skin.
The acne scars can usually be noticeably reduced this way, so that they are often hardly visible afterwards. However, we cannot guarantee complete removal of the scar, especially in case of large and old scars.
One treatment takes about 45 minutes. How many treatments are required depends on the size and shape of the scar. Often 2 to 3 sessions at intervals of 6 to 8 weeks are sufficient. The full effect is seen about 6 to 12 weeks after the last session.
In our practice we work with the laser “Alma Harmony XL Pro”. This is one of the best medical lasers available on the market. The state-of-the-art device offers tailored treatment solutions for every skin type and patient age group thanks to the effective combination therapies.
The Alma Harmony XL Pro is approved for 65 medical and cosmetic treatments and accordingly has a wide range of applications. In addition to acne therapy, these include the removal of scars and pigment spots as well as the treatment of couperose.
In extensive clinical studies, every technique and treatment approach in laser medicine has been proven safe to use with the device.
Treatment with the laser is relatively painless. Nevertheless, we apply an anaesthetic cream to the affected skin area before each application to make the treatment as comfortable as possible for you.
The treatment is gentle on the skin and leaves no scars. The surrounding tissue is usually not affected. In addition, you don’t need any recovery time after the treatment. However, the use of the laser may cause redness and skin irritation in the treated area, which usually disappear within 7 days. We are happy to apply a soothing cream after the treatment.
For the first few days after the treatment, refrain from strenuous activities that make you sweat, as the sweat on the treated area may burn.
In addition, you should protect the treated areas from sunlight with sun cream (sun protection factor 50) for the first 6 weeks after the treatment. The optimal time for laser therapy is therefore the autumn and winter months.
The price for a session is from 250 euros for self-payers. In some cases, the treatment costs are covered by private health insurance. Please clarify this directly with your health insurance.
We have excellent medical training, experience at the Berlin Charité and a very broad dermatological expertise. This enables us to diagnose skin problems or other medical problems within a short time. Professionally and lovingly, we want to help cure your condition in the best possible way. To do this, we not only look at the medical problem, but at the whole person.
At the same time, you should feel completely comfortable in our practice. We do everything to ensure that you are satisfied with the treatment and the result. To this end, we treat you as we would like to be treated. This applies both to the consultation and the therapy as well as to the interpersonal interaction.
