What is Acne?

Acne is built up dead skin with bacteria trapped underneath it. We need to move the dead tissue with an “Acid” (i.e. Glycolic, Salicylic, Retin-A, Mandelic) and kill the bacteria with an “Antibacterial” product (i.e. Benzoyl Peroxide or Sulfur). Acids will also help with the scarring, marks, and they are anti-aging. Also, if you continue to break out you will continue to mark and scar so you always want to use an antibacterial product for prevention.

If you are “oily or shiny” you will breakout.

You need your skin to get tight and dry to lessen the chances of breaking out. If your skin is dry, but not to the point where it’s red and irritated, it means your skin is moving and this will help move the scarring as well as precondition your skin for future treatments.

If you continue to break out, you will continue to scar and mark. So, if you feel oily throughout the day, you want to make sure to wash your face. It’s okay to be moisturized, but that built-up feeling of oil and shine on your face is what will break you out. What we’ll do is put you on a routine that will get you tight and dry, and eventually, we’ll bump up your routine to prevent your skin from getting used to it

Home care is very important, about 60-70% of clearing your skin is by home care.

During your appointment, we will educate you about your skin so that you understand how you can fix your skin at home and understand all of the reasons you are you are having the issues you are with your skin such as acne, sunspots, etc. The key to understanding home care is that it works the same way as work outs do. Your body changes in the beginning and you see results, but after a certain amount of time, your body gets used to the work out and stops changing as much. Your skin reacts the same way. Once you are in maintenance mode, we will change your routine up a bit.

The number one reason why people break out is that it is hereditary. The second is stress and hormones, and the third is salt intake and dairy products.

Do you eat a lot of these foods?
It is best to cut back on them if you are breaking out. If you drink coffee and it makes you jittery, it mimics stress and can also cause breakouts. You must always wear sunscreen. The key to wearing sunscreen is reapplying it every two hours. The sun’s UVA/UVB rays are very damaging to our skin, and with the use of acids, you must wear sunscreen every day.
