The Treatment of Acne


Acne is a very common skin condition during adolescence and adulthood. The key to treating acne is to first understand its root cause, then, and only then can you begin to minimize and eventually alleviate breakouts. The main causes of acne are: hormonal changes, congested or clogged pores, food sensitivities and allergies, excess of bacteria living on the skin, and having genetically sebaceous skin. Your lifestyle choices and poor habits, such as falling asleep with your make-up on or not cleansing after an intense workout will exacerbate the acne condition. Treating Acne can be difficult as it is a chronic inflammation of the sebaceous glands of the skin. It can have a hormonal or genetic origin. It can cause pustules, blackheads, and whiteheads. Severe cases can cause upraised nodules and abscesses that can scar the skin permanently, often referred to as cystic acne.

Though many topical treatments and dietary regimes are available to reduce acne, these are not always sufficient as stand-alone treatments. Remember: even prescription medications may not provide the relief you so desperately seek and may have many negative side effects. A beauty expert at 123 Beauty Lab  Medspa will help determine the cause of your acne, and the best course of action to treat it. With such a variety of methods, tools, and products available our treatment protocols are customized to accommodate your skin needs.

Our acne eliminating peels are alpha and beta-hydroxy acid cocktails that deliver a one two punch to blemishes, inflammation and redness. This outstanding resurfacing treatment combines Salicylic Acid, Lactic Acid, Resorcinol, and antioxidants to treat acne while stealthily penetrating beneath the skin to exfoliate and reduce the buildup of dead skin cells that clogs pores and enables acne to thrive. The results: Less acne, less breakouts, less oil. This procedure is ideal for any patients with oily skin and those suffering from acne. Another great benefit of getting a chemical peel is it can also be used to reduce the redness and scarring that is sometimes caused by acne and other skin damage.
