What is Acne?

Acne is a reasonably common skin condition that causes breakout particularly on the face, but also on the neck, back and chest. These spots can be whiteheads, blackheads or inflamed pustules. There are many reasons why a person develops acne, with hormonal changes and imbalances being a major factor. The key to addressing acne is to treat it earlier rather than later when scaring develops. At King Street Aesthetics, we have a number of options to help you recover from your state of acne and are also able to effectively improve scaring if this has already occurred.

Different symptoms of acne can indicate the cause of breakouts. These may include:

//   blackheads (blocked pores that show a dark surface due to the oxidization of the sebum)
//   whiteheads (blocked pores that are closed over with a hardened white sebum)
//   papules (small, tender red or pink bumps)
//   pustules (papules with pus and infection which can leave scaring)
//   nodules (large, painful deep seated lumps which can destroy collagen tissue)
//   cysts (painful, pus-filled inflamed lumps under the surface that can leave scaring)

Acne Prevention Tips

  • Moisturise

  • Stay Hydrated

  • Corrective Makeup

  • Don't Touch Your Face

Moisturise

Many people have the mis conception that if you suffer with oily -acne skin you should dry it out. Nothing could be further from the truth. Without a well hydrated skins surface, acne tends to becomes worse because the natural reaction for the body is to make more oil to compensate for its dry surface. It is crucial that you are referred the correct moisturiser that has the right ingredients, protects the surface and assists in wound healing.

What is Acne Scarring?

Acne scarring are the visual marks left behind following moderate to severe acne. The tissue in the area becomes so damaged that the surface is visually altered. Scarring occurs due to a number of factors ranging from repeated infection to the same local spot, picking of the pimples, poor skin hygiene, spread of infection, skin dehydration, poor treatment or no treatment of the acne. Acne scarring is also prone to changing colour pigment from red to purple to brown and if left untreated the discolouration can become permanent.

At King Street Aesthetics we provide an array of options to treat acne scarring prevention and can also assist older acne scarring with heavier duty treatments.Daily care and protection of the skin during your acne journey is imperative and is part of the education you will receive at King Street Aesthetics.
