Acne affects more than your skin. We understand how even the mildest breakout can negatively impact your self-confidence and self-esteem. Acne can range from the occasional pimple to extreme, ongoing breakouts that might go on for several years. Severe breakouts have been linked to anxiety and depression in studies. While there is no cure for acne, we have the expertise, experience, and devices necessary to get it under control.

What Causes Acne?

Three processes in the skin can lead to the formation of acne:

  • Dead skin cells collect and clog your pores
  • Sebaceous glands produce too much oil in the follicles
  • Bacteria builds up in your pores, leading to breakouts

Acne is not an infection of the skin, but an inflammatory condition. Factors that can increase your likelihood of a breakout include:

  • Genetics
  • Hormones
  • Stress
  • Mechanical causes such as makeup or dirt accumulated during a workout
  • Diet (studies have suggested foods such as milk and refined, processed foods that contribute to a high glycemic diet may result in acne)
Acne can develop almost anywhere on the body and most commonly appears on the face, neck, chest, back, and shoulders. While blackheads and whiteheads (also known as comedones) are the most common acne lesions, other types can develop as well. Inflammatory lesions like these are the most likely to leave scarring behind:
  • Papules – small, red, and raised bumps, may be tender but often are not
  • Pustules – small, red pimples containing white or yellow pus, can be tender
  • Nodules – solid, inflamed, often painful lumps beneath the skin’s surface
  • Cysts – large, soft, usually painful lumps containing pus deep beneath the skin’s surface
