Acne treatment for all ages
Acne is a type of folliculitis – a condition that affects the hair follicle. At the skin levels, acne is due to an overproduction of sebum (oil) and the presence of bacteria which produce pustules (pimples) as they thrive on the dead skin cells.
Acne can occur as a teenager or as an adult. The internal triggers are often the same, but these triggers may be occurring for different reasons.
For teenagers, hormonal changes frequently contribute and it is therefore extremely common for teenagers to go through a stage of acne.
Adult acne treatment will often require interventions to control the sexual hormones also. In females, adult acne treatment is often related to controlling other health disorders such as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. In males acne is also commonly found on the back. Back acne treatment follows the same principles as facial Acne Treatment
At Healthy Skin Clinic we understand how acne can be a deeply distressing skin problem and a cause of embarrassment and stress. We will help you address each of the known causes of acne, to help you improve your skin’s appearance.
At Healthy Skin Clinic we understand that the skin is a reflection of the body and what is happening on the inside as well as the outside.
As a general rule dietary habits, stress, vitamin and mineral imbalances, plus immune and hormonal issues within the body, play a part in acne.That is why most topical treatments alone, are ineffective.
During your consultation we will talk about your health, lifestyle and eating habits to ensure that we develop an Acne Treatment Program to address your individual needs.
Healthy Skin Clinic offers many natural remedies for acne that include;
- dietary advice to remove the food triggers for acne and ensure optimal nutrition;
- assistance with stress reduction;
- Practitioner Only Supplements to replenish the body’s minerals, support hormone levels, boost immunity, stabilize blood sugar levels and in some instances control contributing health disorders such as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.
