Problem: Acne is a condition observed in the skin as blackheads (open comedones), whiteheads (closed comedones), papules, pustules, nodules and cysts. Sebum and dead skin cells contribute to inflammatory acne, due to a thickened epidermis and over production of oils in the skin – bacteria causes infection deep beneath the skin’s surface.
Acne is not only an uncomfortable skin condition it becomes a problem with severe social restriction, stigma and, if bad enough, with permanent physical scarring.
Nowadays nobody needs to suffer from acne. There is adequate treatment for all stages of the disease – mild to severe.
Solution: A specific skin care routine that includes specialized actives help to reduce swelling, minimize sebum and rid the skin of harmful bacteria. Your doctor may prescribe either an oral or topical accutane or antibiotic to treat your inflammatory acne. Topical retinoids are also an important part of combatting inflammatory papules and pustules.
Causes: there are several factors that influence the cause of acne including hormonal imbalance; genetics; certain medications, chronic stress; bacteria, poor diet, pollution and incorrect use of products.
Recommended product: While oral medication is most often recommended by doctors and dermatologists; using the correct topical skin care assists in balancing and clearing a problem skin while minimizing the possibility of scarring. Dermaclinical My Skin Clearer Range contains 2 of the key ingredients needed to normalize the skin including benzoyl peroxide; and salicylic acid.
Lifestyle tips: to successfully combat acne it must also be dealt with internally. Using vitamins and mineral supplementation assists in creating a healthy biome / gut environment which in turn supports a balanced skin. Zinc, probiotics, and apple cider vinegar taken daily will improve your overall health and your skin; it is important that you avoid high intake of sugar which increases inflammation in the gut.
In-Clinic Treatments: ideally skin needs to be treated every month with a combination of Peels and Micro-needling to assist in reducing breakout and scarring. All clinic treatments are carefully administered to ensure decongesting, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory outcomes.
