IN CLINIC PROTOCOLS
Ideally, the skin should initially be deep cleansed with steam, with impurities extracted. Thereafter, the skin needs to be treated every month with a combination of Peels and Micro­needling with ACNE ampoules to assist in reducing breakout and scarring. The Retinoid 6% mask is a must-have, applied every 6 weeks for progressive results. All clinic treatments are carefully administered to ensure decongesting, anti-bacterial, and anti-inflammatory outcomes.

THE 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 overproduction of oils in the skin – bacteria cause an 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, permanent physical scarring. Nowadays nobody needs to suffer from acne. There is adequate treatment for all stages of the disease – mild to severe.

THE SOLUTION:
A specific skincare routine that includes specialized actives helps 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.

THE CAUSE:
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.

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 balanced skin. Zinc, probiotics, and apple cider vinegar is 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.
