For those of us who have learnt to live with acne and acne scars, gazing at the mirror may not be a pleasurable task. In a world where everyone strives to look perfect, blemishes are not tolerated well. If you have an acne infection resulting from oily skin and clogged pores, peel off masks can be quite helpful. The Miskn Medik8 Peels penetrate the skin to treat acne at a deep level. The Peel has no downtime and only mild skin flaking. It is combined with naturopathic treatment to help speed up results and ensure skin is breakout free. Each MiSkn Acne Removal includes extractions where needed.
For deeper issues like Adult Acne, Hormonal Acne and Cystic Acne, a complete treatment is recommended as it requires deeper cleaning and not just surface infection removal.
Understanding acne will help you take the right decision for treatment of acne. Sebaceous glands under the skins surface keep the skin smooth and supple by secreting oil. This sebum comes to the surface through tiny pores. The amount of sebum produced depends from person to person. Incase these pores get blocked, the sebum will accumulate within the pores, and in a mild condition it results in the formation of small pimples, blackheads and whiteheads. Incase bacteria that lie on the surface of the skin also get trapped within the pore an inflammation may occur. If inflammation develops, it causes the surrounding skin to become red and the spots become larger and filled with pus leading to small cysts. Such extreme cases require treatment otherwise milder infections are best left alone.
Topical treatments for acne as prescribed by a dermatologist are recommended. For milder infections a basic skincare regime should be followed:
Do not wash more than three times a day and wash with normal or lukewarm water. Too hot or cold will worsen the infection. Excess washing and scrubbing may cause more inflammation and possibly make acne worse.
Use a mild soap or wash. An antiseptic wash will kill the germs so that may be a good option. Make sure the wash is not exfoliating as it may erupt the pimple and leave scars. Again no astringents, as they tend to burn.
Do not use ointments or oil-rich creams, as these may clog the holes of the skin (pores). Opt for a water based moisturising cream
