Of all the skin concerns that we see at the studio, acne is by far the largest. This skin disorder affects up to 50 million Americans annually, and while we understand that acne often happens while teens are going through puberty, the reality is that it can impact people even into their 30s and 40s. Whether you have experienced acne all of your life or are just beginning to deal with it now, trying to figure out the solution can be a tricky beast as its type and severity varies from person to person.
In order to successfully treat your acne, it is important to understand what acne is and what type (or types) you may be dealing with. One we discover what is happening to your skin, we, as your aestheticians, will be able to support you in finding a solution and giving you the skin that you have always dreamed of!
So, what exactly is acne?
Acne is a disorder of the skin that occurs when your hair follicles become plugged with oil and dead skin cells. Because most oil glands are found on the face, neck and chest, these are the most common places for acne to show up.
