Rosacea and acne
Skin conditions such as adult acne and rosacea are more common than people think.
Acne is caused by many factors, over production of sebum being one of them.
Sebum is an oily substance produced by the skin’s sebaceous glands. Sebum clogs pores, which attracts bacteria and becomes inflamed.
How is acne treated?
There are now drug-free alternatives to treating teenage and adult acne.
Australian Skin Face Body uses PDT (Photo Dynamic Therapy) to shock the sebaceous glands. This treatment in turn minimises future acne breakouts.
Over-the-counter acne treatments can be very harsh on the skin.
There are medical grade skin care alternatives available to minimize and prevent breakouts.
Medical grade skin peels can be used for more severe cases of acne.
There are also lasers available to assist with the scarring that often comes as a result of bad acne.
Rosacea is a common, chronic skin condition, often misdiagnosed as acne.
It can be controlled and flare ups can be kept to a minimum.
Rosacea may begin with easy facial blushing or flushing.
It commonly affects the areas of the face, especially the nose. It causes tiny red pimples and fine red lines to appear on the skin.
It is best to avoid possible triggers such as alcohol, hot or spicy foods, stress and heat. If left untreated, rosacea can worsen over time.
How is rosacea treated?
Rosacea can be maintained and minimsed by using a good medical grade skincare line as part of a daily routine.
