Esthetics / Acne
Acne an inflammatory skin condition characterized by skin eruptions around hair follicles. Hit can occur at all ages, though commonly appearing on face and shoulders, it can extend to back, arms and legs.
Acne is caused when glands within the pores of the skin become plugged, because oil and skin cells accumulate faster than they can exit. The plug causes the hair follicle to bulge (causing white heads), and the top of the plug may appear dark (causing black heads). If the plug causes the wall of the follicle to rupture, the oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria found normally on the surface of the skin can enter the skin and form small infected areas called pustules (also known as pimples). If these infected areas are deep in the skin, they may enlarge to form firm, painful cysts. It is these cysts that can lead to acne scarring.
We have designed a skin care program for those of our patients who are effected by acne. Through using Broad Band Light (BBL) , peels, masks and extractions we are able to improve acne prone skin.
The Anti-Acne Facial uses pulsed light to target the p-acnes bacteria that are partially responsible for the problem followed by a deeper light treatment that reduces the redness and targets the deeper acne lesions. The treatment is then followed by a facial that is designed to loosen, smooth and extract clogged pores and acne. You will leave with a 7-day post treatment kit to care for you glowing skin.
