At some point in our lives we all get outbreaks of acne. This may be as a teenager or even an adult!
Here at Purity Clinic, we can help you feel more comfortable with your skin.
What Causes Acne?
Acne is caused by the body’s increased production of the hormone androgen. This hormone stimulates the sebaceous glands to produce more oil. This increased production of oil causes the pores to become blocked resulting in the oil being unable to reach the surface.
The acne itself is an infection caused by skin bacteria that feeds on and breaks down this oil. As the bacteria multiply, waste products and sebaceous acid are created and the sebaceous gland can become inflamed causing blackheads, whiteheads, pimples or cysts.
Does Acne Treatment Work?
At Purity Clinic, Dudley we offer two effective methods of acne treatment.
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)
This works by projecting pulses of light into the epidermis. The light is absorbed by the skin and converted into heat to breakdown the blood vessels supplying blood to the glands. This decreases the production of abnormal sebum and therefore reduces acne without damaging the skin. IPL is an effective acne treatment which results in clearer, acne-free skin.
Clenziderm MD Acne Therapeutic System
Unlike other benzoyl peroxide acne products. Clenziderm system contain a unique, patented solubilized form of 5% benzoyl peroxide. Because it’s solubilized, this powerful medication can penetrate deep into your pores quickly for rapid results.
If you are unsure which treatment would be the best option for you please book in for a free consultation at Purity Clinic, Dudley so we can discuss your options.
