Are you breaking out?
It can be very distressing when you repeatedly have breakouts. Don’t you wish you had clear, acne-free skin? Acne (or more accurately termed, “Acne Vulgaris”) is caused by a multitude of factors such as
- Excess oil (sebum) production
- Hair follicles clogged by oil and dead skin cells
- Bacterial infection (frequently the bacterium known as Propionibacterium acnes [P. acnes])
- Inflammation of the skin
Depending on the cause, acne can be successfully treated in most cases with a combination of targeted skincare products and correction of the underlying cause(s).
Chemical peels are an effective and generally safe method employed to treat acne. A chemical peel is a simple clinic procedure in which a chemical solution is applied to the skin to remove and exfoliate the surface skin cells (epidermis) in a controlled manner. This allows skin to regenerate, promoting skin rejuvenation from within, thereby improving the appearance and youthfulness of the skin.
