Peeling for Oily and Acne
Acne is a disease of the skin that may result in severe scarring of the face, neck and back. It may persist for years, having adverse psychological effects including depression and withdrawal from society. Acne is most common in adolescence and early adulthood. Hormonal acne in women may smolder on for years. Contrary to popular belief, acne is not caused by dirty skin or un pure blood. It is a disorder of the pilo-sebaceous unit. This is made up of a hair follicle, sebaceous gland (oil) and a hair. In normal skin, sebum produced by the sebaceous glands combine within the hair follicle with cells being sloughed off. When it "fills up", the sebum spreads over the skin's surface. When this process works correctly, the skin remains moist and healthy. Pimples are the result of a sequence of events. There is an obstruction within the follicle itself. The sebum along with the dead cells, get trapped and dry out. This creates a plug obstructing the drainage of sebum. This is known as a whitehead. As sebum becomes older and drier, it becomes brown and presents as blackheads. There is a bacteria occurring normally on the surface of the skin and when oil is trapped in the follicle, the bacteria will grow into the blocked pore. The bacteria produces chemicals that alter the composition of the oil within the follicle, leading to inflammation and the formation of pus. How does our "Skin Renewal Peeling" treat and rectify this problem? Through exfoliation and the stimulation of cell division in the basal epidermis cells, the treatment unplugs blocked pores and allows elimination of blackheads and closed comedones. These are the precursors of eruptive acne. In addition, skin oiliness which predisposes the skin to acne, is reduced. Peeling treatments can permanently control this disfiguring and confidence-destroying affliction. Acne patients should follow a comprehensive skin care regime prescribed by a skin care expert.
