Acne Treatment Options
Treatments for Acne at Sparx Beauty Salon in Winchester
Adult acne is on the rise, with a recent study of 92 private dermatology clinics in the UK finding a 200% rise in the number of adults seeking specialist acne treatment. The condition is caused by the skin’s pores becoming blocked, trapping the sebum or oil in our skin and causing bacteria to multiply and leading to spots, which can range from mild blackheads to painful cysts. At its worst acne can be a long- lasting condition resulting in scarring and pigmentation problems.
Acne Treatments from Alumier MD at Sparx Beauty Salon Winchester
Adult skin is different to teenage skin because it is less oily and has slower rate of cell turnover. This means that products designed to tackle teenage acne are often too harsh for adult skin, causing irritation and dryness. At the same time as dealing with acne, adults may also be concerned about visible signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles. At Sparx Beauty we recommend Alumier MD’s Acne Treatment range which is specifically formulated with adults but is also suitable for teenagers.
Acneic skin is often caused by dead skin cells in the pores that are not shedding properly. It is important to remove cell build-up in the pores to allow treatment products to penetrate and destroy P. acne bacteria. Salicylic acid and lactic acid are examples of exfoliating ingredients known to improve acne. We can recommend products that include these ingredients to add to your routine.
Alumier MD Acne Balancing Serum is a highlighly effective lightweight serum that penetrates pores to reduce acne, allowing the skin to heal and preventing new pimples from forming. It contains anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antioxidant and hydrating ingredients to target pimples and reduce redness. It’s fragrance, sulphate and paraben free, as are all Alumier MD products.
When sebum builds up under the plugged pore/follicle, it causes an inflammatory response. Keeping skin moisturised is an important way to balance sebum production. If skin dries out due to excessive washing or harsh chemicals, it will produce more sebum to compensate.
You may also want to try Alumier MD Acne Clarifying Cleanser, which is a gentle but very effective cleanser for acne-prone skin. It deep-cleans blocked pores and calms the skin for a clearer complexion. It also includes ingredients to soothe and hydrate the skin leaving it fresh, supple and comfortable. An innovative encapsulated salicylic acid technology provides a slow even release into the skin to deep clean pores, minimising irritation while extending effectiveness.
We also recommend AlumierMD Detox Clear treatment which contains salicylic acid and lactic acid for excellent pore penetration and exfoliation. Salicylic acid penetrates into the pore and exfoliates dead skin cells and excess sebum to detox the skin.
