CAUSES
OF
ACNE
BREAKOUTS

Acne may appear in numerous forms, such as pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, papules, and/or pustules. In most cases, acne breakouts occur because of clogged pores filled with excess sebum and debris. When your pores are clogged, your body develops an inflammatory reaction, and the presence of bacteria can worsen the situation, leading to pimples, cysts, blackheads, and whiteheads. Sometimes, you may develop pus-filled nodules deeper within the skin, leaving massive scars.

ACNE FACIAL

Acne facial treatments are specialized skin care procedures to help manage and improve acne-prone skin. Licensed estheticians or dermatologists typically perform these treatments and can be tailored to your skin type and acne severity. Here are some common components of acne facial treatments:

Cleansing

The first step is a thorough cleansing of the skin to remove dirt, oil, and makeup. This helps prepare the skin for the treatment.

Steam

Steam is often used to open up the pores and soften the skin, making it easier to extract impurities and apply other products.

Extraction

This step involves the removal of blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples. It should be done carefully by a professional to avoid scarring or infection.

Exfoliation

Exfoliation can be done using mechanical methods (scrubs) or chemical methods (such as alpha hydroxy acids or beta hydroxy acids) to remove dead skin cells and unclog pores.

Mask or Peel

Depending on your skin type, a mask or chemical peel may be applied to target specific issues like excess oil, inflammation, or bacteria. Common ingredients include salicylic acid or sulfur.

High-Frequency Treatment

Some acne facials use high-frequency devices to kill bacteria and reduce inflammation.

Moisturizing

After all the treatment steps, a suitable moisturizer is applied to keep the skin hydrated and balanced.

Sunscreen

It's essential to protect your skin from UV rays, especially if you're using treatments that may make your skin more sensitive to the sun.
