Acne pimples or zits are caused by a bacteria known as P. acnes which lives in the oil gland. When these glands get clogged up with blackheads oil starts to build up, forming a chemical soup which allows bacteria to multiply. This is how pimples and zits form.
The first step in preventing pimples is to reduce the amount of blackheads. Our team at London Laser can formulate a plan based upon your skin type and your oil production to help you exfoliate these blackheads using the HydraFacial treatment. Hydrafacial uses patented technology to cleanse, extract, and hydrate. We also offer chemical peels. Using the correct gentle cleansers, exfoliants and moisturizers will also help with acne-prone skin, as will using the correct make up.
If your skin is red and inflammatory with pimples, then treatments using low level laser or blue light treatment can help. Blue light treatment targets the bacteria by releasing chemicals which kills them naturally. Unlike one wavelength of blue light low level laser takes things a step further using red and infrared light to decrease inflammation, trigger the healing response and repair skin.
If you have acne-prone skin or even oily skin our team can certainly find a solution to keep you blemish-free. For the best results for blemish free – acne free skin, one has to look further than just one treatment, but develop a specialized program that starts with cleansing, and ends with repair of inflamed skin- a tailored skin program is what we deliver.
