We’ve all experienced these unwelcome visitors at one point in our lives. A big fat red pimple in the middle of your face can really ruin your day, and they always seem to pop up at the worst time!
Teenagers seem to get acne worse than anyone, but we adults can suffer from it as well! In fact, a study done by Dr. Jonette Keri, an American dermatologist, suggests that around 30% of women and 20% of men age 20-60 suffer from adult acne.
It can be embarrassing, and make you not even want to get out of bed in the morning! But there are solutions available which can help you feel better in your own skin!
What Causes Adult Acne?
The process behind adult acne is a complex one, and it’s not fully understood yet. But here’s what we do know.
In your skin, there are glands called your sebaceous glands. They release material called sebum, which helps to keep your skin hydrated and waterproof.
But sometimes your sebaceous glands will produce too much sebum. This extra sebum, along with dead skin cells, can clog your pores. When this happens, it creates an environment where bacteria like to live.
When bacteria set up shop, it causes inflammation. The sebum and dead skin clog can create a whitehead or a blackhead.
What we don’t know is why this happens. Why does our skin produce an excess of sebum, clogging up the pores?
There are several theories, including hormones and diet, but none have been conclusively proven.
What is the Best Acne Treatment?
Just because we don’t know what causes adult acne, though, doesn’t mean we haven’t discovered ways to treat it!
At Jiva Spa Toronto, we have the best acne treatment systems designed to fight adult acne and help your skin look its best.
A microdermabrasion is designed to remove the layer of dead skin cells on your face, revealing cleaner, softer skin beneath. It also improves your skin’s elasticity, texture, and colour, and can help reduce acne scarring as well.
To discover more about the benefits of microdermabrasion, take a look at our previous article on the subject.
We also offer a specialized acne facial treatment which is designed to clean deep into your skin and exfoliate your pores to remove dead skin cells. It also focuses on individual extractions in the gentlest way possible, in order to directly address your problematic areas.
