Acne

We all strive for smooth skin. It’s the universal sign of beauty and radiance. If acne breakouts plague your life, this can be both embarrassing and painful. Acne is caused when your pores become clogged with dead skin cells combined with dirt and oil.

Skin bacteria such as acne, can trigger the developmental acne in the skin. The good news is that at Walnut Creek Aesthetics we can treat these conditions. Our approach to healthy skin is holistic and starts from the food we eat, to the products we use. We encourage you to make a consultation with our skin expert Teresa Clemens, as they are complimentary.

What is acne?

Acne is a skin condition associated with clogged pores. Understanding where it actually begins is the key to healthy skin. While acne is most frequently the result of teenage hormones, breakouts can affect every stage of life. Breakouts can happen when follicles get blocked and oil or sebum builds under the skin. This plug can get infected with bacteria and cause swelling as a result. If you suffer from acne you may have one of the following types of acne:

  • Whiteheads
  • Blackheads
  • Pustules
  • Papules
  • Nodules
  • Cysts

What are the causes of Acne?

Other factors that cause Acne can often be genetic, hormonal changes, emotional stress, and menstruation can also trigger breakouts. A consultation with our skin care expert Teresa Clemens and the right combination of products will guide you on your way to clear, healthy skin.
