If you take a closer look at the acne on your face, they often show up in the same place over and over. It’s like a never-ending guessing game of wondering how they are caused. Was it hormones? Food? Little did you know, the areas you experience acne may be able to offer some clues as to what may be causing it.
No matter where you’re getting acne on your face, this guide will help you figure out why you’re getting them and find the best ways to treat them.
When the glands in your skin that produce oil, known as sebaceous glands, get blocked by dead skin cells, excessive oil, or bacteria, it can lead to the emergence of stubborn acne. Acne comes in various forms, such as whiteheads, blackheads, cysts, nodules, papules, and pustules.
Different factors include:-
Your forehead may break out because of certain hair products, stress, hormone changes, and poor hygiene. The T-zone, consisting of the forehead and nose, is characterized by increased oil production compared to the rest of the face. This is due to a higher concentration of sebaceous glands beneath the surface of the skin in this particular area.
Acne that appears on the chin and along the jawline is believed to be influenced by hormonal factors. Interestingly, scientific research also supports the connection between hormones and acne in this area of the face. A study has shown that hormonal acne commonly manifests in the lower third of the face, providing further evidence of the chin-hormone relationship.
Lifestyle choices can also cause acne in the cheek area. For instance, frequently holding the phone against the cheek can lead to breakout, where the screen comes into contact with the face. Additionally, daily habits such as sleeping on dirty pillowcases (it’s recommended to change them weekly) and touching the face with unclean hands can contribute to acne development.
At Kowayo Aesthetic Clinic, several acne treatments can help and even help you achieve that clear skin you’re looking for!
Skin boosters can be beneficial by providing hydration, improving skin texture, and promoting overall skin health. While skin boosters are not typically used as a primary treatment for severe or inflammatory acne, they can be a helpful addition to a comprehensive acne management plan. Here’s how skin boosters works:
The available types of skin boosters include:-
Sunekos utilizes a patented process that deliver heat into the deeper layers of the skin. This heating process destroys bacteria while simultaneously tightening sagging skin and smoothing wrinkles. The heat also stimulates collagen production, reducing the appearance of acne scars.
During a Sunekos acne treatment, a thin layer of mineral-infused solution is applied to the skin. The technician then uses a specialized handpiece that delivers thermal energy through the solution and deep into the skin. Patients may experience a warm, tingling sensation as the heat penetrates the skin’s surface. A single session typically lasts around 30 minutes. Most patients see a noticeable improvement in their complexion and scarring after just one or two treatments.
Sunekos therapy is non-invasive, safe for all skin types, and requires no downtime. Regular maintenance sessions can keep acne at bay for the long term. With its unique ability to both eliminate and minimize scarring, Sunekos offers patients clearer, healthier looking skin.
Rejuran is an innovative treatment that can help treat acne. It utilizes purified polynucleotides, which are found naturally in human DNA and have wound healing and anti-inflammatory properties.
During a Rejuran treatment, a qualified practitioner will inject small amounts of polynucleotides into targeted areas of the skin using an ultra-fine needle. The polynucleotides work to accelerate the skin’s natural healing process, reducing inflammation associated with acne. They also stimulate collagen and elastin production which helps to repair and minimize acne scars.
Patients typically notice reduced redness and inflammation after the first Rejuran treatment. When administered in a course of treatments, Rejuran promotes skin cell renewal and regeneration. Pimples start to diminish within a few weeks. Acne scars also become smoother and less noticeable over time.
Profhilo is an injectable hyaluronic acid treatment that can effectively treat acne and improve the appearance of acne scars. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally in the skin, helping to keep it hydrated, firm and supple.
During a Profhilo treatment, a stabilized form of hyaluronic acid is injected into the dermis using multiple insertion points. This stimulates the skin’s fibroblasts to produce more collagen and elastin. The additional collagen smoothes and plumps up depressed acne scars, while elastin improves skin elasticity overall.
Profhilo also has hydrating and bio-remodeling effects. The hyaluronic acid binds to water and expands under the skin, providing enhanced hydration. This allows the skin to repair itself faster and slows the aging process. Over 2-3 Profhilo sessions, patients notice significant improvements in scarring and overall skin quality.
Redensity 1 is an innovative skin rejuvenation treatment that can help reduce acne and heal scarring. It utilizes the power of red light therapy combined with Diluted Hydrochloric Acid (DHC) peels.
The treatment starts with a DHC peel applied to the face. DHC gently exfoliates the skin, reducing excess oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria that can clog pores and cause acne. After the peel, a panel emitting red LED light is positioned over the face. Red light penetrates deep into the skin to reduce inflammation and accelerate healing.
Red light also stimulates fibroblasts to increase collagen production which helps rebuild the extracellular matrix of the skin. This smoothens out depressed scars over a course of treatments. Redensity 1 tackles both active acne and the scarring aftermath, providing comprehensive acne treatment.
Patients see a reduction in acne lesions, improved skin texture and clarity after just 1-2 sessions. Maintenance treatments can keep acne at bay long-term. The treatment is well-tolerated with no downtime required. Redensity 1’s dual approach of peels and red light makes it an ideal solution for clearing problem skin.
Clarity Laser is an advanced laser system that offers dual-wavelength capabilities. This laser technology allows for the effective treatment of various skin concerns while also providing skin rejuvenation benefits.
The Clarity Laser can address many skin conditions, including freckles, sunspots, melasma, acne marks, and vascular birthmarks, and offer long-term hair removal. With its dual-wavelength capability and versatility in treating various skin concerns, the Clarity Laser offers a comprehensive solution for individuals seeking effective skin treatments and rejuvenation procedures.
Clarity laser treatment offers a solution for enhancing skin texture by utilizing controlled heat to stimulate a targeted injury response in the skin. This process involves creating micro lesions that trigger the body’s natural collagen production. As collagen levels increase, it effectively elevates and fills in scars, improving skin texture. Compared to traditional ablative lasers that remove the top layers of skin for resurfacing, Clarity laser treatment offers reduced downtime.
Besides texture improvement, Clarity laser also provides benefits for facial aesthetics. Utilizing heat to promote collagen production and skin tightening can contribute to a more lifted appearance and a defined jawline. These enhancements enhance the overall facial shape, creating a more youthful and sculpted look.
Sometimes acne will leave scars, so Pico laser resurfacing will be able to treat it.
The laser energy penetrates the outer layers of the skin, creating controlled micro-injuries. This process stimulates the production of new collagen, which helps to regenerate healthier skin cells and improve skin texture. As the skin heals from the laser treatment, the newly formed collagen remodels the scarred areas, filling in depressions and reducing the appearance of acne scars. This leads to smoother, more even-toned skin. Laser resurfacing for acne scars typically requires multiple treatment sessions spaced several weeks apart. The exact number of sessions depends on the severity of the scars and individual response to the treatment.
After the treatment, following the medical professional’s instructions for post-treatment care is important. This usually involves protecting the treated area from sun exposure, applying moisturizers or ointments as recommended, and avoiding picking or scratching the treated skin.
If you are looking for solutions to address your acne and enhance your overall appearance, it is recommended to consult with experienced professionals. Take the first step towards healthier, more radiant skin by scheduling a consultation at Kowayo Aesthetic Clinic.
