How Our Medical Spa Can Help You Treat Acne

Acne is the single most common skin problem in the United States, so it is important to know that you are not alone. About 40 to 50 million Americans have acne at any one time. Acne can affect people of all ages. More and more women are getting acne and enduring this problem well into their 30s, 40s, 50s and beyond.

What Is Acne?Acne Treatments in Bucks County, PA, and Hunterdon County, NJ

Acne appears when a pore in our skin clogs. This clog begins with dead skin cells. Normally dead skin cells rise to the surface of the pore and the body sheds the cells. But when the body starts producing lots of sebum (the oil that keeps our skin from drying out), the dead skin cells begin to stick together and become trapped inside the pore. Sometimes the bacteria in our skin will also become trapped inside the pore and quickly multiply. Soon the pore becomes inflamed, red and swollen. If the inflammation goes deep into the skin, an acne cyst or nodule forms.

People who suffer from acne can have a few blemishes, or they may have more severe breakouts with whiteheads, blackheads, papules and deep-rooted pimples.

Letting acne run its course untreated is not always the best choice. Without treatment, dark spots and permanent scars can appear on the skin as your acne clears. Treating acne also helps boost your self-confidence.
