Understanding Acne

Acne is blockages we develop in the sebaceous gland (follicle). It  causes inflammation and swelling.

It may consist of blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, cysts nodules and scars and depending on the severity, you may have all of the above.

Acne is classified into 4 grades and is more common in adolescence, but unfortunately is becoming alarmingly common in women over the age of 25 . The emotional struggle is devastating.

Causes of Acne: 

Acne occurs when the hair follicle becomes clogged with excess oil and dead skin cells. Acne commonly affects the face, but can occur on the chest, neck, buttocks and back.

Hormones influence the amount of sebum (oil flow) within the skin and the excess oil binds together with the dead skin cells from the surface of the skin and within the hair follicle causes a blockage which then produces the ideal breeding environment for bacteria to thrive, causing a pustular, sore and inflamed pimple to form.

We believe with education and constant monitoring, acne and associated scarring can be minimised and controlled.  Early diagnosis and treatment are crucial in order to reduce severity of breakouts to reduce the possibility of scarring.

A holistic multi-focal approach is required to address each factor causing acne. This approach promotes clear skin and avoids the return of acne.

Treatments may include:

  • Cosmeceutical/medical grade skin care, dietary and lifestyle modifications are important.
  • Medik8 Specific Enzyme/ Chemical Peeling, exfoliating procedures, LED (Red & Blue light) and IPL photo therapy & SRS therapy.
  • For severe acne a referral to Naturopath and/or dermatologist can be arranged.

The Medik8 products and training is  a unique and personalised treatment for acne and congested skin. 

Our strength is on rebuilding the integrity of your skin from the inside out, with a large focus on gut health and hormone effects.

Along with a  number of in-salon treatments, the program requires the use of your Medik8 home care products in addition to a focus and understanding of your dietary, hormone and gut health.

​Remember acne is unique.   “It won’t happen overnight but it will happen”.  Be positive even if you have to fake it till you make it. Think clear skin thoughts always!

Clear skin will help reduce stress and make you feel more confident.  The acne focus will lessen.  In turn, the reduced stress hormones released will help internal functional and topical healing.
