Of course acne affects more than 80% of teenagers at some time in their lives but acne is not just a teen concern. Acne has become a full-fledged epidemic among adults, especially women. Acne is not just a cosmetic issue but a condition that is both physical and emotional.
Vancouver Aesthetics understands the emotional toll of acne and uses premium products and advanced techniques to clear your skin in as little as 3 to 4 months.
What Is Acne?
Acne is an inherited disorder of the pores. Pores that shed dead skin cells much faster than normal. Normal pores shed about one layer of dead skin cells per day inside the pore. The acne prone pore sheds up to five layers of dead skin cells per day, which is an impossible rate for the body to keep up with. The accelerated shedding forms a microcomedone, otherwise known as the beginning of all acne. Microcomedones can take up to 90 days to transform into blackheads or congestion beneath the surface of the skin. If bacteria is present it will feed on dead skin cells and oil, causing the comedone to turn into inflamed pimples, pustules and even cysts.
