What is Acne?
Acne is a common condition that can vary from mild to severe and affects 80% of adolescents and many adults. Several non-invasive treatments offered at the Urban Aesthetix Clinic, such as medical-grade skin care, chemical peels and antibiotics, can improve acne for a smoother and healthier-looking complexion.
Overactive skin glands produce excess sebum which blocks pores and results in inflamed skin and acne spots, papules and pustules. Acne break-outs are also often triggered by diet, hormonal changes in women, various medicines and conditions such as polycystic ovary syndrome and Cushing’s syndrome.
Medical skincare products available at the clinic include Dr. Obagi’s ZO® range and the Tebiskin® range. These are therapeutic treatment protocols available only by prescription, and skincare regimes for healthier skin, based on the latest advances in skin therapy technology for a more effective clinical approach. They treat a wide range of skin disorders and chronic conditions, such as acne.
Enerpeel® medical chemical peels can slow down oil production, control spot-causing bacteria, reduce inflammation and congested skin as well as boost collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid production for repaired and rejuvenated skin.
