ACNE CARE FACIALS

Types of Acne

There are several different types of acne, each with its own unique characteristics. Some of the most common types of acne include:

  1. Whiteheads

Whiteheads are small, round bumps that form when pores become clogged with oil and dead skin cells.

  1. Blackheads

Blackheads are small, dark bumps that form when pores become clogged with oil and dead skin cells. The dark color is caused by the buildup of melanin in the skin.

  1. Papules

Papules are small, red bumps that form on the skin. They are typically tender to the touch and can be quite painful.

  1. Pustules

Pustules are similar to papules but contain pus. They are often referred to as "zits."

  1. Nodules

Nodules are large, painful bumps that form beneath the surface of the skin. They can be quite stubborn and may take several weeks to heal.

  1. Cysts

Cysts are large, pus-filled bumps that form beneath the surface of the skin. They are typically quite painful and can lead to scarring if not treated properly.

This clogging could be due to excess oil production, accumulation of dead skin cells, or bacterial infection. Acne presents as small to large, red bumps on the skin which may be painful and pus-filled in some cases. Treatment depends on the age, type, and severity of acne.

(Added Option $30) LED Lights are offered in red, blue, and green as single sessions or part of a more complex treatment. Red is for calming and healing, while blue is used for reducing bacteria, such as in acne, and green is used for a reduction in scarring and hyperpigmentation. Ask our staff which is best for you.
