Acne is a common disorder that arises from hair follicles and their associated sebaceous glands. The severity of acne is related to the amount of sebum produced by sebaceous glands. Sebum is an oily secretion that lubricates hair and skin. Sebum is also a powerful inflammatory agent affecting the shedding of cells from the epidermis (upper layer of the skin). This can result in the occlusion of pores and hence form white heads and ultimately black heads.

FAQ

What life style factors can worsen acne?

Sebum production is increased by hot showers, hot baths, saunas, steam rooms, excessive sweating. Dietary factors can also worsen acne and include eating non-organic dairy products, diets with high sugar content as well as stimulants including caffeine. Inappropriate use of skin products can also significantly worsen acne especially overuse of moisturisers. Attempts to squeeze or extract white heads or cysts can increase the depth of lesions, increase inflammation and amount of aggravated acne flare ups and ultimately post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

Can hormonal changes affect acne?

Hormonal factors that can worsen acne include systemic hormonal abnormalities such as polycystic ovarian syndrome. Hormonal changes during puberty and changes before and during a woman’s period can also have a negative impact on acne. Hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy can also worsen acne although this can be quite variable.

What steps can prevent and control acne?

Important life style changes that can help to prevent acne or moderate acne flare ups include all factors that prevent increased levels of sebum in the skin. This includes never using moisturisers and never using heavy foundation.

Every morning good skin preparation is essential. Cleansing using oily skin cleanser followed by a scrub consisting of non-irritating essential exfoliating polish will help to clean the skin and also reduce sebum. Use of sebum-reducing pads are also recommended and form part of the ZO acne program.

Stabilisation and correction of skin health with an alpha-hydroxy acid exfoliator is recommended for barrier repair. Essential Daily Power Defence is a combination of retinol, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents that help to calm any acne flare ups. If necessary oral supplements maybe required initially. It is important to note that if oral supplements are taken, significant procedures should not be attempted for at least 4 to 6 months after this has been stopped. The ZO Acne System incorporates the preventative and treatment steps described, to help clear up acne.

Other treatment options for active acne

Dermalux LED Phototherapy has been shown to provide some respite and supplement topical and oral treatments during acne flare ups. Multiple sessions of phototherapy every 4 weeks can supplement the ZO Acne System and provides some relief thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties as well stimulate repair and regeneration of the skin.

Acne scarring and the aftermath of flare ups

Severe cystic acne and multiple lesions can leave pits with significant scarring and hyperpigmentation. Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is particularly a problem in darker skin types, especially skin types IV to VI. Acne scars can be classified as ice pick scars, rolling scars and boxcar scars. Treatment options include microneedling with platelet rich plasma and chemical peels such as the ZO 3 Step Peel or Controlled Depth Blue Peel. Pigmentation can initially be addressed by incorporating certain bleaching agents into any bespoke skin care program in an attempt to lighten, and in combination with vitamin A, blend the skin producing a more even skin tone and reduction in postinflammatory hyperpigmentation scars.

Rejuvence Philosophy

At Rejuvence we understand the psychological distress that can accompany problematic and stubborn acne. It can lead to low confidence and self-esteem that can compromise personal relationships and performance in the work place. The key to acne control is sebum reduction. We are able to guide sufferers through a variety of skin care options in an attempt to control symptoms. Once under control, we have the experience and expertise to improve any scarring and pigmentation problems that have been left behind.
