Acne is a common skin condition characterized by patches of scaly red skin, blackheads and whiteheads, cysts, pimples, and in some cases scarring. Whether you have a few breakouts or many, acne can tragically affect self confidence.
In teen years, acne is usually caused by an increase in hormones such as testosterone. It can also be triggered by certain cosmetics and medication.
Often the more frustrating form of acne is adult acne. Affecting more women than men it can also be triggered by hormonal shifts from weight lifting regimes, the menstrual cycle, pregnancy, birth control and menopause. Stress, poor diet/nutrition, sensitivities to skin care/cosmetic, improper skin cleansing, dirty makeup brushes, over-drying the skin and lifestyle habits are also common causes of acne at any age.
Determining what those triggers are and creating an effective strategy for each individual has been the key to successful outcomes at The Summit. We recommend our Clinical Skin Care Consultation as a first step in helping resolve these frustrating skin concerns.
Patience is one of the most needed qualities to resolve this often stressful condition. Giving time for each treatment or new product to work is very important to it's success. Your skin has a turn over or renewal cycle of approximately one month. Expect to wait a month to see if the results of the changes we make together are effective. Often, only days are given before a client (or parent of the client) will become discouraged and decide a product or treatment is not working before trying something else in desperation. We understand this cycle and work hard to keep encouraging and educating through these phases. Switching treatments and products frequently is a recipe for disaster not success.
Some of our treatments we provide to dramatically reduce, control and manage this condition, whether on the face, back, buttocks or chest, are as follows:
