Acne & Congestion Treatment

Congestion and acne are essentially terms used to describe skin which has clogged pores. These are seen as blackheads and whiteheads on the surface of the skin and form a bumpy texture. 

The overall cause is different for everyone and treatment can include getting down to the the finer details including lifestyle, products used at home, environment, diet, hormones and habits around your skin.

What can we do to help? 

Treatments for acne need to target a few different areas in order to get the best results. Internal and external factors should be addressed. In salon treatments work on reducing the bacteria (p.acnes) and unclogging pores affected by congestion, pustles and blackheads. The overall function of the skin, as well as calming and rejuvenating collagen should also be considered when treating acne to reduce or reverse the likelihood of scarring.
