Say "goodbye" to breakouts
Say goodbye to body breakouts with the latest acne treatments. The sun has started to shine lighter nights and brighter days mean we maybe showing a little more skin as the winter wardrobe gets put away. Acne is a condition we associate with teenagers, but this issue affects a number of adults as well. Not only on the face but on the back and shoulders, neck and decollete too. Adult acne affects 25% of men and 50% of women at some point in their adult lives. This can be difficult to cope with and can cause anxiety and depression, it is thought that the causes are hormonal but research shows that a vitamin deficiency, diet and stress are all contributors to the condition. Acne breakouts tend to affect areas that have a higher proportion of sebaceous glands per inch of skin. A wide range of professional treatments are available for this condition to soothe and diminish blemishes and a course is usually recommended to achieve the best results. Blue LED is excellent for targeting inflamed acne by reducing the bacteria that causes the legions and scarring. Ultrasonic, Microdermabrasion and Iontophoesis help with acne scarring and inflammation by unblocking the pores to clear congestion, these treatments will stimulate collagen and elastin production too so improving the skins appearance. After a skincare consultation the best treatment plan can be decided and I would recommend a treatment once a week for 4 weeks with a top up treatment monthly to see a marked improvement in the skin and to maintain the results. The aftercare advice will include the use of specialist products to maintain the good work at home in your day to day routine this helps the skin to heal better and prevent further breakouts.
