Acne is a pain. It is a disease of blocked pores, too much oil and over-production of dead skin cells. But with good care and treatment you can usually get it under control and win back some of your confidence. Spot treating that dreaded pimple when it surfaces is a quick fix for that spot but doesn’t sort the whole issue.
Pimples can take up to 90 days to form- dead skin cells clog up an oil filled pore and cause a plug- a microcomedone. As more oil is produced by your skin, it becomes trapped with the plug and it is a perfect breeding ground for bacteria. Then it becomes inflamed, swollen and red. So, while this one has reached the surface, other ones are ready to pop up elsewhere. So, while treating the one spot gives you quick relief, the rest of the crop are just waiting.
To really clear your skin, you need to treat the underlying acne condition, otherwise you will always be behind the 8 ball, so to speak. The way to do this is to use a system of good products and treatments CONSISTENTLY. Book an appointment with Desley, who has done acne specialty training and uses products and methods that work. Initial consultation is $50 redeemable on your products. 3801 5824
