Understanding Your Acne 

Acne or acne vulgaris is a common skin condition where the pores become inflamed due to clogging of oil, dead skin cells, dirt, and bacteria. Blockage in the hair follicle may also result in pimples. 

While it's a common condition affecting 9.4% of the global population, its appearance can greatly affect a patient's personal life and confidence, especially when it has progressed into acne scars.

Types of Acne

Acne vulgaris can come in different shapes and sizes due to varying types. A patient can have mild acne or moderate acne – they can even develop severe acne. Knowing the types allows you to anticipate how they can affect your skin and choose the best acne treatments.

  • Whiteheads - considered closed comedonal acne, this type involves a complete clogging of pores, creating white bumps on your skin.
  • Blackheads - these are vary similar to whiteheads because they're also considered comedonal acne. However, these are black on the surface, and your pores are still open.
  • Papules - appearing as small red bumps, papules form when excess skin cells and oil combine with acne-causing bacteria, called propionibacterium acnes, and clog the pores.
  • Pustules - this inflammatory acne appears in a red, bulging bump with white pus at the center. Aside from the face, you may also find them on the chest and back in clusters. They're caused by an infected clogged pore and hormonal changes, also earning them the term hormonal acne.
  • Nodules - this type of acne appears in red or flesh-colored bulges that lie deep under the skin's surface, caused by acne-causing bacteria called c. acnes bacteria.
  • Cysts - cystic acne is a type of severe inflammatory acne that lies deep within your skin. This type of acne appears in big red bulges that are painful and full of pus.

Schedule an appointment at Ethos Spa for our licensed estheticians to check your type of acne. After assessing your pimples, we'll create customized acne treatments and skincare routines for you.

Causes of Acne

Acne vulgaris doesn't only come out naturally. We might have mentioned that dirt, oil, dead skin cells, and acne-causing bacteria are responsible for these bulges, but how do we get these anyway?

The causes of acne we can be mindful of are:

  • Genetics
  • Picking at acne lesions
  • Fluctuating hormones
  • Air pollution
  • Weather with high humidity
  • Stress
  • Acne-causing medications
  • Headgear
  • Clothing
  • Diet
  • Laying on dirty pillows
  • Use of greasy or oily hair and skincare products
  • Work areas with oily surroundings

Consult with our estheticians about your lifestyle and environment, so we can create a plan for your acne treatment.

Acne Risk Factors

Some patients develop more acne than others because of some risk factors. Our estheticians will also assess you according to these factors once you've consulted us for your acne and acne scarring.

  • Age - acne is more common among teenagers due to a surge of hormones called androgens. But even older people can develop adult acne.
  • Genetics - some people have acne-prone skin, while some don't – this is because of genetics. 
  • Foreign objects getting into contact with the skin - you'll likely have more acne if your lifestyle involves frequent pressure or friction on your skin, like bringing your cell phone or telephone to your ear, wearing tight collars and helmets, and others.
  • Contact with oily or greasy products - you might be predisposed to having acne if you use oily lotions, hair products, and other greasy solutions.

Myths about Acne

You may have heard a thing or two about acne, but you're not sure whether they're true. If you find them below, they're most likely just one of the many acne myths.

Myth: Acne is caused by poor hygiene.

Fact: Dirty skin doesn't always cause acne. Using harsh soaps or products and scrubbing your skin may even result in skin irritations that worsen your acne.

Myth: Wearing too much makeup and cosmetics will cause acne.

Fact: Not all cosmetics make your acne worse, especially if you're using oil-free products. Non-comedogenic makeup is also formulated to not clog your pores.

  • Grade 3: this nodulocystic acne grade is moderately severe, involving many pustules and papules. Patients may also experience inflamed nodules occasionally, with the chest and back also affected.
  • Grade 4: this involves severe nodulocystic acne, where patients experience many large nodules and pustules that are inflamed and painful.

If you recognize yourself in any of the severities of acne above, Ethos Spa offers solutions to help you feel more confident in your skin.

Treating Your Acne 

Ethos Spa offers the best acne treatments ranging from topical solutions to undergoing photodynamic therapy and other procedures.

Topical Treatment

Ethos Spa may prescribe topical acne medication to dry out acne, kill acne-causing bacteria, and exfoliate your skin from dead skin cells. The topical medication for acne and acne scars includes the following:

  • Benzoyl peroxide - our doctor might prescribe patients mild acne body wash, facial wash, or spot treatment with benzoyl peroxide to dry out acne. It also kills acne-causing bacteria to prevent further breakouts.
  • Azelaic acid - this ingredient helps with inflammatory acne because it reduces swelling and kills acne-causing bacteria. Azelaic acid is also a natural acid in grains like wheat, rye, and barley.
  • Salicylic acid - This is a common ingredient you may find in many over-the-counter skincare products. Salicylic acid is suitable for mild acne as it removes the top layer of your skin and exfoliates it from dead skin cells. It also unclogs every hair follicle that might cause pimples.

Therapies 

Ethos Spa is equipped with advanced technology that can be your treatment option for getting rid of the acne scar you've been dreading.

Here are some of the treatment procedures available:

  • Fraxel - this laser treatment resurfaces the skin by targeting the epidermis and dermis to stimulate collagen production, which will fill in the depressed acne scars.
  • Microneedling - this procedure is another form of skin resurfacing procedure to treat acne scars. It promotes collagen and elastin production by creating miniature punctures in the skin, stimulating the body's healing process.
  • PicoSure Focus - this laser treatment is used to reduce the appearance of blemishes and acne scars by generating short bursts of energy that contract the skin cells. These contractions will stimulate the production of elastin and collagen.
  • Levulan BLU-U - a type of photodynamic therapy, this is a treatment option we offer for body acne. It targets the overactive sebaceous glands under your skin to eliminate acne-causing bacteria. This procedure also reduces the appearance of acne scars.

These are just some of the therapies at Ethos Spa suitable for your acne and acne scars. Book an appointment with our highly trained estheticians and doctors to learn more about the better procedure for you.
