What is Acne?
Acne is an inherited disorder of the pores – pores that shed dead skin cells much faster than normal. Normal pores shed about one layer of dead skin cells per day inside the pore. The acne-prone pore sheds up to five layers of dead skin cells per day and the body just can’t keep up. This forms the microcomedone, the beginning of all acne. Taking up to 90 days, it turns into blackheads or congestion under the skin; or if bacteria are present (which just loves to feed on the dead skin cells and oil), it turns into inflamed pimples or pustules and maybe even cysts.
Our acne treatment begins with a purifying cleanse, ultrasonic scrubber, and exfoliation with steam to loosen pores for extractions or peel. High frequency is used to destroy acne-causing bacteria, accelerate healing and reduce inflammation. Finishing this treatment off with a calming and clarifying mask.
