Acne starts when the skin’s oil (sebaceous) glands secrete too much oil and plug the tiny pores in the skin. Sometimes these clogged pores can take the form of blackheads (black spots), sometimes they appear as whiteheads (white bumps filled with skin cells, oil and bacteria). These can also turn into larger, red, inflamed and painful bumps under the skin. These lesions can also sometimes become infected.
Acne can be caused by external factors such as the makeup or skin care, or hair products you are using, or it can come from internal factors, such as hormone imbalances, stress, medications, or even diet. Having clear skin isn’t just about vanity. Your skin is the first thing people notice about you and we understand how those breakouts can have a huge impact on someone’s self-esteem.
For our Acne Treatment, we look at the whole picture. We will discuss your current skin care routine, diet and discuss options and treatments to try and resolve the acne, which usually encompass medical grade skin care products as well as acne laser treatments.*
