What Causes Acne Breakouts?
Acne breakouts occur when dirt, oil, bacteria, and dead skin cells clog pores, letting the bacteria reproduce and create inflammation. Breakouts can happen at any time, although for many people their appearance coincides with changing hormones, such as during puberty or the menstrual cycle.
How Can I Reduce Acne Breakouts?
Skinatomy Laser Clinic has several options to help you reduce your acne breakouts and improve the overall condition of your skin.
IPL stands for “intense pulsed light”. A handpiece emits a broad spectrum of light that targets acne scarring, blemishes, clogged pores, and other skin issues like hyperpigmentation. The targeted areas absorb heat, which causes them to break down. Over a period of a week or two, blemishes, scars, and hyperpigmented areas may become darker before your body eliminates them and they fade away.
Fraxel Skin Resurfacing
This laser treatment can improve the look of sun damage, acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, and uneven texture and tone. The laser creates tiny areas of damage in your skin, which triggers a cascade of healing elements that result in healthier, younger-looking skin. This also reduces the occurrence of acne breakouts by clearing away old skin that can cause clogged pores.
