Acne Q & A

What causes acne?

When your pores fill up with oil, debris, and dead skin cells, they become inflamed and clogged. This leads to blackheads, pimples, whiteheads, cysts, and other types of acne. Whether you have an occasional pimple or if you regularly experience acne breakouts, the cause could be:

  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Excess oil production
  • Corticosteroid medications
  • Friction from clothing
  • Family history of acne

Following a poor diet rich in simple carbohydrates and greasy foods won’t cause acne, but these factors can certainly worsen acne if you already have it. Stress can also worsen your acne breakout.

When should I get treatment for acne?

Because one zit can quickly erupt into a patch of several massive pimples, the skin care experts at Pure Luxe Medical want you to come in for an evaluation even if your breakout seems minor. It’s especially important to schedule an evaluation if you experience any of the following issues:

  • Acne scarring
  • Painful cysts
  • Sudden acne flare-ups
  • Redness or inflammation

It’s also important to have a professional medical acne examination if over-the-counter remedies just aren’t effective for you. Continuing to use ineffective products that aren’t right for your skin can worsen your acne, dry out your skin, and lead to ongoing irritation.

How is acne treated?

Your acne treatment plan at Pure Luxe Medical is tailored to your specific type of acne, as well as its severity. Some of the most in-demand acne treatments include:

  • Laser skin resurfacing
  • Microneedling
  • Chemical peels
  • Oil control facials
  • Purifying spa facials
  • Teen acne facials
  • Medical-grade skincare products

If you have scars left behind from previous acne breakouts, laser skin resurfacing can help. But you might also benefit from dermal filler injections that can plump sunken grooves where you once had acne.

Your dedicated practitioner can even counsel you on how to care for your skin at home and help you select medical-grade topical solutions to use at home. Rest assured, the team at Pure Luxe Medical work tirelessly to find the best possible solution, so you don’t have to struggle with embarrassing acne or scars another day.
