Acne is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the sebaceous glands characterised by blackheads, whiteheads, macules, papules, pustules and cysts and often leads to scarring. The first chain of events that usually lead to acne, especially acne in the face, are in puberty when the body starts to produce testosterone, which then stimulates the sebaceous glands to produce excess sebum that is then trapped in the hair follicle. Dead cells are attached to this sticky substance and bacteria then forms, therefore the cells cannot exfoliate and a hard mass is then produced within the skin.
Acne is usually genetic and peak acne years are in females 14-17, and in males 16-19. Over 40% of females will have acne during some part of their life and over 35% of males will be affected also. Today’s lifestyle, stress levels and increased intake of medication is causing ADULT acne to certainly be on the rise.
Each client will have an individual treatment programme worked out by their practitioner for their particular skin acne concerns. Each treatment prescribed will change from session to session as the skin is changing. All treatments will include a home prescription, which must be strictly adhered to, to obtain the best results possible. Once the acne is inactive, we can then devise a treatment schedule to improve any scarring left.
