Acne Causes

Before considering acne treatment, its important to understand the causes of acne.. While stress creates the trigger for acne, and hormonal imbalances and poor nutrition contribute there are four main factors that contribute to the development of acne: overactive sebaceous glands (the production of too much oil), dead skin cell accumulation, bacteria and inflammation.

When overactive sebaceous glands produce too much oil, this oil spills onto the skin’s surface, creating a slick, greasy appearance. This excess oil acts as a binder, holding on to dead skin cells that were meant to be shed. The follicle becomes clogged with a mixture of oil and dead skin cells, prohibiting oxygen from entering. This creates the perfect breeding ground for bacteria, which leads to the swelling, redness and inflammation around the follicle, resulting in acne.

To successfully treat, clear and prevent acne, the cascade of events leading to acne development must be controlled: we must regulate the sebaceous glands, promote exfoliation to help shed dead skin cells from the surface, kill bacteria and soothe inflammation.

Acne Treatment

Embellish you use a combination of treatments to address acne, which are all individualized depending on each case.

The acne treatment services performed at embellish you include:

Microdermabrasion

Uses a diamond tip head to mechanically exfoliate the surface layer of dead skin cells, With a gentle vacuum suction which aids in lymphatic drainage, this in turns helps remove some of the nasty toxins that are harvesting around the face contributing to acne.

Microdermabrasion is the ideal acne treatment for anybody wishing to experience a deeper, more effective facial. The treatment can help to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, tighten enlarged pores, eliminate blackheads and whiteheads, and reduce the appearance of scar tissue and pigmentation.

Peels

Chemical peels are used to treat acne by helping dissolve the glue like substance between the cells, allowing the dead skin cells to be removed and clean out clogged pores, reducing inflammation in the deeper layers of the skin and shrinking the breakout and amount of oil in the pores.

LED Light Therapy

Red & Blue LED light Therapy works at a cellular level and stimulates the healing mechanisms in the skin. The Red light gently stimulates collagen production. The Blue light reduces acne bacteria and can reduce inflammation and breakouts.

Skin needling/ Derma rolling

Dermal rolling, also known as skin needling, involves applying a small roller made of tiny surgical needles to the surface of the skin. The roller creates tiny puncture channels that encourage an organic collagen renewal and regeneration response. The procedure is perfect for the treatment of a variety of skin conditions including acne scarring, stretch marks, fine lines, pigmentation/sun damage, enlarged pores, blackheads and scarring, resulting in a healthier, smoother and younger clearer looking complexion.
