Acne can be avoided in part by using certain products. However, a combination of dead skin, hormones, genetics, and other factors can sometimes cause severe acne and require professional treatment. Without treatment, the oil and dead skin cells continue to build up on your skin and apply pressure to your pores. This in turn causes your pores to overflow and spread bacteria to the surrounding skin, causing infections that result in pimples, pustules, nodules, and cysts.
When you come to Skintology Medical Spa, our doctors will examine your skin to determine which treatment or combination of treatments will be best for you. Some of the treatments we may recommend include facials, laser skin treatments, and chemical peels.

Acne is a common skin condition which occurs due to a buildup of dead skin cells, bacteria, and increasing amounts of oil that combine to block the pores in your skin. Acne is worse in individuals with oily skin, and may occur to both teenagers and adults. Acne also occurs in both men and women, though women are more likely to have mild or moderate forms of acne into their 30s and beyond.
