What is acne?

Acne is a common problem in which the oil glands or hair follicles in the skin become blocked, resulting in blackheads, bumps, red spots, pimples and cysts. Acne-prone skin is often painful or uncomfortable, itchy, red, inflamed and sensitive. The severity of acne inflammation can range from very mild to severe. Acne pimples include inflammatory surface acne and cystic acne, which occur in the deeper layers of the skin - and can cause acne scarring, as well as other non-inflammatory acne, i.e. blackheads or scattered or rarely occurring small white bumps, closed comedones.

Let's see them a little closer:

A closed comedo is a sebaceous plug that blocks the opening of the sebaceous gland and the hair follicle. White comedones that protrude slightly from the surface of the skin are called closed comedones. A closed comedo does not suppurate, but it bulges more and more.

Open comedones (blackheads) are located in the wider pores of the skin. Their surface is open, so it is easy to remove the fat in them. The sebum in a comedo is a mixture of oil and dead skin cells, which can easily become discolored due to oxidation, which is why they are also called blackhead comedones.

Papules usually appear as small, raised bumps that are red in color and may be tender to the touch. These usually do not produce pus, unlike pustules.

Pustules are similar to papules, but have a white head in the center caused by the accumulation of pus. These can sometimes be confused with white bumps or closed comedones. However, they are usually larger and more inflamed.

Nodules are large, inflamed, hard-to-touch nodules that grow not on the surface of the skin, but in the deeper layers, and are very painful. They are red or skin-colored. Without treatment, they can remain in the skin for weeks or even months.

Cysts are the most serious inflammation caused by acne. Cysts are large pus-filled lumps that appear under the surface of the skin and often take a long time to form a head. This form of acne is the biggest risk factor for permanent scarring.

Various acne treatments are available to treat mild to moderate acne, which can help eliminate active inflammation and prevent future acne.

What causes acne?

Normally, glands in the skin produce an oily substance called sebum. The tallow coats the skin and ensures perfect hydration and protection of the skin.

However, when the sebaceous glands are overactive (i.e. producing too much sebum), the pores can become inflamed from excess sebum and cell debris, creating an ideal environment for dirt and bacteria to colonize, leading to breakouts. The skin reacts to blocked glands or follicles by forming papules and pustules.

Genetic, hormonal and environmental factors can all contribute to the appearance of acne. Due to hormonal fluctuations, acne most often appears in adolescence, but it is also a common problem in adulthood, regardless of gender.

Here at Heiszler Hair & Beauty, we perform a variety of acne treatments to help heal current inflammation and prevent future breakouts.

What treatments are available for acne?

Here at Heiszler Hair & Beauty, the following acne treatments are available:

✔️ HYDRA TOUCH treatment is a solution to many skin problems, such as acne. Dead skin and impurities are gently exfoliated and lifted by the patented vortex technology, while serums containing lactic acid and plant extracts soothe and cleanse the skin. Additionally, the HydraFacial's LED light therapy breaks down bacteria that can cause infection.

✔️ PHOTOREJUVENATION treatments are extremely effective in treating acne complaints. The intense pulsed light emitted to infected areas destroys harmful bacteria that can lead to inflammation. The treatment stimulates collagen production in the area, helping to improve the appearance of current scarring.
