# Acne Rosacea is also a form of acne but has a complex systemic interaction. We can also assist with treating this but the products used will be different, please book a complimentary skin consultation so that we can work out an individualized treatment plan you.

90% of the population will have acne at some time during their life. When we think of acne we immediately think of the teenager inflicted with pustules (those angry bumps filled with white pus). But adult acne is on the rise and includes acne rosacea and hormonal cystic acne as well as the common comedone (blackhead) and papule (blind pimple).

So what causes acne and can it be cured? The cause of acne is systemic i.e. internal.  Factors (mostly hormones) such as estrogen, testosterone, adrenalin, and androgens having an effect on the sebaceous glands in certain areas of the body especially the face and back. Sebaceous glands produce oil and are attached to hair follicles, these are commonly though of as pores.

When oil production increases several things occur:

  • We get oiler skin. Not really as issue on its own as sebum is good for the skin, but when we try to ‘clear the oil’ with stripping products such as soaps and specialty acne products we can inflame and damage the stratum corneum (top most layer of the epidermis). This pushes our skin into inflammation mode and as a result the skin produces even more sebum. Stripping oil from the skin also damages the skins integrity allowing infections to take hold (hello pustules) and hydration levels to diminish (leading to even more inflammation).
  • Hair follicles (pores) can get congested with sebum (oil) when the follicle opening becomes blocked by skin cells and excess sebum. This generally occurs when we are using a product which is drying out the skin or when we are not hydrating the skin well, or exfoliating regularly. This leads to what you would think of as enlarged pores.
  • The follicle wall can rupture under pressure and we end up with a pustule or cystic acne. This can be very sore and inflamed.
  • Excess sebum and skin cells accumulate at the follicle opening and the bacteria which are ever present on our skin (proponi-bacterium) feast on the sebum and begin to multiply causing infection and the associated pus, hello pustule.

Acne cannot be ‘cured’ but it can be controlled with cosmeceuticals and treatments.  At Puhoi Beauty & Spa we offer free nutritional and lifestyle advice to help you reduce the systemic causes of acne as well. Regardless of its name or cause, acne and it’s associated blemishes can shatter our confidence. Let us help you to regain confidence in your skin.

Treatments

Before you begin your first treatment you will have been using the required products for at least 4 weeks, this is so that your skin will not be so inflamed and will be able to tolerate the first treatment. The Diva Wipes are a soft woven bamboo cloth and greatly help to reduce both inflammation (because they are gentle) and and bacteria (because they are disposable), they also help to gently clear the pores due to the woven fibre of the cloth. The BetaCleanse calms inflamed spots and reduces redness thanks to the addition of Niacinamide (vitamin B3), clears pores with Salicylic and L-Mandelic Acids, and inhibits bacterial growth. Beta AOX is a serum which helps the skin to repair damage and contains Copper PCA, Beta Glucan, and Ginseng. Beta Gel decongests and quickly deals with spots as they arise and prevents them from coming back, it actively deals with sebum production due to the use of Dioic Acid. Beta Moisturize hydrates the skin well but dries with a matt effect on the skin, it contains prebiotics and probiotics as well as cinnamon extract to help balance good and bad bacteria on the skin.  The package includes a skincare consultation prior to commencement where we perform a patch test for the peels discuss product use in detail.
