Acne is a long-term skin condition that can occur at any age. It is generally connected to our hormones and can also appear because of certain medications, diet, and stress. Acne develops when a hair follicle is clogged with debris such as dead skin cells, oil from the skin, and bacteria. Inflammation ensues, pore swells and eventually follicle wall is broken. If the rupture occurs near skin surface healing is fast and complete. However, when the break in the follicle wall is deep, infected material spills into the dermis and destroys healthy skin tissue. When our body forms new collagen to repair this deep damage, the scar is formed.
At Cataleya aesthetics we have several options to treat your acne and acne scars and restore smooth, radiant and healthy skin. Lumecca IPL works well for shallow scarring and post-acne dark spots. Revolutionary Morpheus8 microneedling treatment works at a deeper level and remodels areas with scarring for more even skin texture. We develop a personalized Epionce skin care regimen to further assist in reducing the breakouts and keeping the skin at it's healthiest."
