Acne, Acne Scars, and Scarring
If you're still struggling with acne breakouts, you're not alone. Acne is among the most common
skin conditions in the world. Research shows that up to 50% of adults aged 20 to 40 suffer from
low-grade acne and oily skin.
The condition is caused by an overproduction of sebum, an oil designed to moisturize the skin
and a bacteria. When dirt and dead skin cells combine with excess sebum, blocked pores become
infected and swollen, leading to red pimples commonly known as zits. Teenagers are known to
suffer from this problem the most during puberty when hormone levels fluctuate and trigger
excessive sebum production.
Other causes for acne can include medications, genetics, menopause and topical irritants.
Numerous harsh, topical products are often used to clear up the acne before seeing us.
Unfortunately, many strong cleansers can make sensitive, acne-prone skin breakout even more.
The good news is you don't have to suffer anymore.With the right treatment, you can effectively
target both the cause and visible symptoms of acne-related skin conditions.
Treatments Options Available for Acne and Acne Scarring:
ACID PEELS (HYDRAFACIAL MD)
Chemical Peels are a safe, natural treatment for mild to moderate acne breakouts.
They help to effectively cleanse and clear the skin, reducing blackheads, whiteheads, sticky
sebum and debris. Chemical peels help to restore the ph. balance in skin and can boost healthy
cell turnover and natural exfoliation. Salicylic Acid is a preferred acne peel from the beta
hydroxyl acid family. This common, medical ingredient is known for its anti-acne effectiveness
and is often found in topical acne medications.
BLUE LIGHT THERAPY
Another gentle but effective acne treatment we offer is blue light therapy. Light therapy is also
commonly known as photo therapy or photo-bio stimulation.
Low-energy light technology delivers energy to skin in such a way that it stimulates the skin’s
cells to produce a healing response.
Blue light is typically the colour utilized for acne treatment. FDA approved for acne treatment,
the blue LED light at 460nm targets bacteria. Acne will develop when a high number of bacteria
such as Propionibacterium acnes (P. acne), collect in a blocked pore and create pressure and
inflammation. Narrow-band, high-intensity blue light targets Porphyrin which helps to kill the
bacteria responsible for acne as it reacts to the therapy. Blue light is safe for all skin tones and
can even be effective where other treatment options have failed. Quick and painless treatment
with no associated downtime.
A scarred face can have a severe psychological effect. Accidents, surgeries and acne can leave
permanent scars on the skin. Your skin reacts to trauma by building scars made up of fibrous
tissue. This tissue is not the same as your normal and healthy skin, making it appear discoloured,
colourless, raised and/or indented.If you're one of many people who are bothered by their uneven
skin texture—be it scars, wrinkles, enlarged pores, or stretch marks—the solution is easier than
you'd think. Stop worrying about covering up old acne scars or stressing over the deep-set
wrinkles that make you look older than you really are.
It's time to take the first step toward celebrating your skin.
Venus Versa targeted skin resurfacing treatments can effectively reduce signs of skin damage and
improve the appearance of uneven skin texture, no matter how fair or dark your skin tone. With
just a couple of quick sessions, you'll notice a naturally smoother, more radiant, and healthier-
looking complexion that lasts.
