What can we do to stop Acne Vulgaris?
The answer lies in breaking the cycle of acne.
I would recommend the following steps to break the cycle effectively.
Other additional steps maybe added for specific skin types.
(1) Thorough Evaluation of Skin Care Regime
These are the products that we use on our face daily and forms the foundation in our battle against acne. Any comedogenic products should be removed and the texture and consistency of products should be evaluated.
(2) Adjuvant Laser Therapy
A combination of R2 Glow Laser and Pigmentation Removal Laser aims to achieve the following results.
(A) Decreased Inflammation (B) Decreased Bacteria Counts (C) Lightening of Pigmentation & Redness
(3) Chemical Peel / Hydrafacial Microdermabrasion
Chemical peels help to remove excessive dead skin cells which can predispose to clogging of sebaceous ducts which in turn results in comedone formation.
** You should always have your condition evaluated by a trained doctor to ascertain the diagnosis before commencing any form of treatment.
