Peels for Acne and Scars

Acne is essentially an infection of the skin that may result in severe scarring of the face, neck, and back. Acne is characterized by red pimples on the face and other areas that can easily scar if not treated properly.

Since acne typically affects young persons throughout adolescence, it tends to cause adverse psychological effects such as depression and withdrawal from society. The lasting scars from acne continue to traumatize people throughout their lifetime, but peels can change that. Hormonal acne in women, typically close to their monthly cycle can last until menopause and beyond.

It is a myth that acne is caused by dirty skin, impurities in the blood or what you eat. Acne is a disorder of the pilosebaceous glands. These glands are composed of a hair follicle, sebaceous gland (oil) and a hair.

In normal skin, sebum produced by the sebaceous glands combines itself with the hair follicle and cells being shed. When these glands are full, the sebum spreads over the skin’s surface providing the skin with natural moisture and healthy glow.

The lifecycle of a pimple

  • The follicle becomes obstructed.
  • Sebum and dead cells are trapped and dry out.
  • The follicle becomes plugged preventing the drainage of sebum.
  • A whitehead will appear.
  • The longer the sebum is trapped here, it becomes drier and darker, creating a blackhead.
  • Naturally-occurring surface bacteria are now trapped in the follicle and grow into the blocked pore.
  • The bacteria produce chemicals that cause inflammation and create pus.

Peels are the solution

By deeply exfoliating the skin and the stimulating cell division in the basal epidermis cells, the Elaine Brennan Skin Renewal Peeling System treatment unplugs blocked pores and allows eradication of blackheads and closed pores.

These professional peeling treatments can permanently control this affliction and restore your confidence. It is very important as well that all individuals whether suffering from acne or not, follow a comprehensive skin care regime prescribed by a skincare expert.
