What causes Acne:
Acne develops when the sebaceous glands produce an oily material, as the sebaceous cell matures, dies and fragments, it then combines with cells in the hair follicle that are moving to the surface of the skin as sebum, which in non-acne skin results in natural lubrication for the skin.
Acne develops when a blockage occurs in the follicle canal, it combines with resident bacterial flora P. acnes. The increased number of cells block the opening at the surface of the skin, causing the follicle to enlarge, the walls become weaker and the follicle can rupture into the dermis. The body reacts with an inflammatory response causing redness and swelling.
Factors that are believed to contribute to acne.
Early treatment is key in preventing scarring.
Sebaceous Gland Ablation (SGA), is a safe non-medicated successful treatment, where the sebaceous gland is destroyed using a gentle electric current and once the gland is destroyed it is unable to cause ‘break outs’. SGA is conducted on active glands to ensure that the problem causing gland is targeted. The skin has many sebaceous glands, therefore destroying overactive glands does not cause any problems with skin lubrication.
This treatment can require a few treatments however is 100% drug & hormone free!
