Introduction to Spots

Spots its another word commonly used to describe acne. Acne is a disorder of the hair and oil glands found in the face and upper body. Also known as black heads, whiteheads, spots, pimples or zits. 

Science: At puberty androgens (male hormones) increase the production of sebum (oil) from enlarged sebaceous glands that become blocked. Comedones (follicles impacted by dead skin cells and oil) may be open (blackheads) or closed (whiteheads). Inflammation leads to papules, pustules and nodules.

“A multi-combination approach is often used in the treatment of acne.”

Microdermabrasion: This mechanical exfoliation technique helps to remove dead skin cells from the upper layers of the skin, preventing the blockage of pores and allowing skin to breathe without obstruction. We use a diamond tip to gently remove the outermost skin layers leaving behind fresh, healthy skin. This process stimulates the formation of new skin cells and collagen production. MDA can gives you a deep cleansing by suctioning clogged pores and removing dead skin cells which can lead to dull and lifeless skin, acne, ingrown hairs, wrinkles, mottled pigmentation and poor skin health. This treatment can be combined with a skin peel for brilliant results and a range of added benefits. To find out more please contact us.

Chemical/Skin Peels: This is a chemical exfoliation technique which helps to remove dead skin cells and eliminate acne.
