Acne, medically known as Acne Vulgaris, is a skin disease that involves the oil glands at the base of hair follicles. It commonly occurs during puberty when the sebaceous (oil) glands come to life – the glands are stimulated by male hormones produced by the adrenal glands of both males and females.
Acne is not dangerous, but can leave skin scars. Human skin has pores (tiny holes) which connect to oil glands located under the skin. The glands are connected to the pores via follicles – small canals. These glands produce Sebum, an oily liquid. The sebum carries dead skin cells through the follicles to the surface of the skin. A small hair grows through the follicle out of the skin. Pimples grow when these follicles get blocked, resulting in an accumulation of oil under the skin.
Yelp Review from Amira K.
“I went to SkinPerfect for my acne and acne stars, I’ve been going for the past 3 months once every two weeks for the spectra laser which is supposed to lighten up my scars and kill the bacteria in my skin to prevent breakouts. I can honestly say that I am so happy about my results. I don’t breakout nearly as much as I used to and my scars have lightened dramatically. I would say my face improved about 80%.”
