Acne – All you need to know

Teal Feathers 5

June is acne awareness month and at Light Touch Clinic we want to help you banish the blemishes and be confident with your clear skin.

If you’re someone who is acquainted with acne, you’ll know that it affects your complexion with the appearance of a variety of pimples and spots. Whether it’s blackheads, whiteheads, pus-filled pustules or cysts, you’ll be wise to the common characteristics of acne; often feeling unhappy and self-conscious with your look.As a clinic that has your interests at heart and aims to help people look and feel better, Light Touch can help to enlighten you about this common skin concern.

WHAT CAUSES ACNE?

Acne is most likely to develop through the build-up of dirt, debris and excess oil clogging the pores. Everyday grime and environmental pollutants will often settle on the skin’s surface, which can then combine with the natural oils that are secreted by the skin. When you mix in dead skin cells, you have the ideal recipe for a breakout of acne.

The complexion has its own process of exfoliation, but as we get older we find it is not always as efficient as it used to be. Therefore when acne’s ingredients are not expelled adequately, it can result in pores that become congested. These blockages can combine with the acne bacteria that lives naturally on the skin (P.acnes), leading to the development of inflammation and pus.

Hormonal changes are often responsible for the overproduction of sebum, which is why adolescents, pregnant women and ladies of a certain age are often more likely to be affected by breakouts of acne.

HOW CAN I TREAT ACNE?

We are all mindful of the benefits of a regular skincare routine, and how it can contribute to maintaining the health and condition of the skin. Undertaking daily cleansing and exfoliating can help to clear the pores and keep the skin’s surface free from old skin cells; helping to reduce the severity and frequency of breakouts. People with acne may also find their skin can be more sensitive, which is why using the right products is important. Talking to one of Light Touch’s skin care experts about our range of advanced skin care can recommend the ideal creams and serums to suit your individual skin type, as well as being tailored to meet your individual needs.

However, if a more in-depth intervention is what you seek, our range of treatments for the skin may benefit you. Improving the health of the skin by providing deep cleansing and exfoliation, reducing inflammation and shrinking enlarged pores can produce a clear and glowing appearance that is more even in texture and tone.

A consultation with one of the team can advise which solution is best, including:

● Tixel

● Dermalux LED

● Facials

The team at Light Touch are a savvy bunch whose knowledge and experience can transform your look and unveil a more preferred appearance.

So, put yourself in the expert hands of Light Touch this June, and start your journey to blitzing those zits and achieving a clearer, more radiant you.

Had an amazing experience at this clinic! Dr. Natalie is amazing and put me completely at ease. I have a fear of needles, but my treatment was painless and easy. I've suffered from horrible eye-bags and hollows my entire life and now my eyes look rested and refreshed! The staff is super friendly as well.

I visited this clinic on a recommendation and I am so pleased. All the staff were really lovely. I had an anti-wrinkle treatment with Natalie (who is brilliant) and I am so pleased with the result. The whole process from start to finish, cannot be faulted and the end result is really natural. I recommend to anyone to visit them.
