Acne & Congested Skin Treatment

We know how distressing living with acne can be. For those who suffer with congested skin, be it acne, enlarged pores or blackheads, there are a number of acne treatments that will absolutely help.

IPL (intense pulsed light) is one of the most effective treatments for acne.  It is a non-invasive acne treatment that will calm and reduce active acne, in addition to reducing the redness and pigmentation from previous breakouts and older scars.

We also have a range of professional Jan Marini skin care products that are highly effective in treating acne including our range of glycolic skin peels.

During a free consultation we can assess the condition of your skin and help you to choose treatment(s) that will give you the best outcome. We can treat both active acne as well as  recommend treatments that will improve the appearance of your skin if it has been left scarred or pitted from former breakouts.

In addition to our range of individual treatments we also offer a fast-track six week intensive programme for active acne.

Frequently asked questions

IPL treatments will require a skin patch test 24 hours ahead of treatment, other treatments such as our Super Facial or Glycolic Skin Peels are suitable for all skin types.

A skin patch test can be administered during a free consultation, however it is chargeable at £25, however this amount will later be deducted from your first treatment payment.

If you choose IPL treatment this is a gentle treatment with no downtime and less side effects than medication.  The IPL treatment feels warm and like an elastic band flicking on the skin.

Some treatments including IPL will result in some redness immediately after the treatment, however this will usually disappear within 2 hours.  In most cases make up can be applied immediately, although we would usually recommend using only a UV protector on the day of treatment.

All of our treatments deliver immediate visible results, with some continuing to promote new collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin for up to 2 years after treatment.

The Pyramid Facelift has made my skin look and feel more youthful and it has really smoothed the appearance of the lines on my forehead and around my mouth. I feel confident enough to go make up free and my skin feels tighter. Emma at NU-BEAU was so informative and really helped me to feel relaxed. I will be coming back in future, thank you Emma!

I tried different remedies with the melasma on my forehead in the hope that it would fade but nothing worked, I couldn’t cover it up with make up and I felt very self conscious. After one treatment I couldn’t believe the improvement. The treatment was pain free and after a second treatment it has almost completely removed the pigmentation. I am over the moon with the results!


After having 2 babies in the space of 2 years, my stomach really bothered me. The LipoFirm treatment was wonderfully relaxing, simply involving a lovely warming sensation on my stomach. After the treatment, my stomach instantly looked better than it had when I walked in and over the next 2 or 3 days it got even better. My skin looked firmer, the crepeyness and wrinkles are gone and the stretch marks have been dramatically reduced , back to how it used to look pre babies. Thank you Emma for giving me confidence to wear a bikini again!
