Acne is a skin condition characterised by red pimples on the skin due to inflamed or infected oil glands and is chiefly present among teenagers but can last well beyond the teen years. It can be painful, challenging and affect one’s mental well-being and confidence and can result in scarring. We provide several solutions to help you regain control over your skin.
There are three stages of Acne – mild, moderate and severe. Acne can occur commonly on the face, neck, shoulders and back. The swelling of the skin is from the sebum, hair follicle and skin cells all getting “plugged” together, causing bacteria leading to an infection. Although acne is prominent in our teenage years, some cases follow us until we are well into our adult life.
The main causes of Acne are some medications that contain androgen, lithium greasy cosmetics, hormonal changes, emotional stress and menstruation.
Some adults have naturally oily skin, and for others, it is because they are lacking a regular skin care regime. Still others continue to experience hormonal shifts due to menstrual cycle fluctuations, menopause, and endocrine system disorders. Therefore, many adults can experience breakouts.
So, since there are some elements we can’t change such as hormones and menstruation, we can take steps to gradually promote healthier skin.
Our treatments strengthen and improve your skin texture, and target over active sebaceous glands, preventing future breakouts.
