What is Acne?

Acne is a common skin condition that can unfortunately occur at any age. It is caused by inflammation of the oily glands in the skin, which produce sebum (oils). When the gland duct becomes blocked by debris such as skin, oils, or dirt, a pimple begins to form. Increased inflammation occurs as the pimple becomes infected with p.acnes bacteria. Acne can also be triggered by allergies and hormonal issues, which require specific treatment. The good news is that at Glow Luxe Skin Care, we provide effective acne treatments to help you achieve the clear, healthy skin you desire.

Acne Tips And Options

  • Microdermabrasion should never be used on active acne breakouts, as this can irritate the skin, and spread the p.acnes bacteria around complicating the issue. Many acne products are sold via informercial as well, but these tend to offer short term results, while drying the skin or causing long term damage to skin quality.
  • Skin suffering from acne, can also be quite sensitive or may have flakiness and excess oil at the same time. Choosing a gentle cleanser (not soap) can be very helpful in keeping the pores clean and reducing the likelyhood of bacteria creating inflammation. Although it can be tempting, never squeeze or "pop" a pimple as this may cause pitted scarring and damage to the skin's appearance. Avoid using home remedies such as toothpaste as a spot treatment, as this can cause a "burn" and pigmented scarring to occur.
  • Never squeeze a deep pimple as it can lead to inflammation and scarring.
  • Use a gentle (non abrasive) exfoliator to keep pores clear
  • Common prescriptions by dermatologists are Accutane™ or antibiotics, but these should never be a first course of action. Accutane, (isotretinoin product) can cause miscarriages and deformities in unborn babies and so should not be taken while pregnant. Accutane may also increase your chance of developing diabetes, liver disease or heart disease in those that have a genetic disposition towards these disorders when used on an ongoing basis. Accutane can also cause an increase in sensitivity to sunlight as well as decreased night vision.
