Are you fed up with your acne and acne scars?
Have you searched for acne solutions but never found the right one?
Acne affects more than your skin. It can affect your self-esteem, confidence and enjoyment of life. Acne can also get worse as a result of environmental pollution, stress, diet, cosmetics and medications.
WHAT IS ACNE?
Acne occurs when the opening of your sebaceous glands are blocked. This leads to an accumulation of oil that when combined with your normal skin bacteria results in skin irritation and acne occurring that includes:
- Blackheads and whiteheads
- Large nodules or cysts
- Painful swelling
Acne can start in early teenage years and can continue well into your 40’s. Our highly trained and experienced therapists will assess your skin thoroughly before tailoring an acne treatment plan.
The two main factors associated with acne are genetics and hormones. Your genes can determine how your pores react when they become blocked with excessive oil. If you’ve inherited a tendency for overproducing dead skin cells, your skin pores will become blocked resulting in acne developing.
Your hormones affect the rate of oil production in your sebaceous glands. During your life hormone levels fluctuate with the most dramatic fluctuation occurring during puberty. Women’s hormonal levels fluctuate during their menstrual cycle, pregnancy, after pregnancy, perimenopause and menopause. Men’s hormonal levels fluctuate during puberty resulting in breakouts and acne scarring.
