Acneic skin disorders occur as the result of excessive sebum or oil production that have mixed with keratinized dead skin cells inside the hair follicle. This can create a micro-plug, also known as a comedone. There are a variety of lesions that can appear as blackheads, pimples, pustules, papules, cysts, and nodules on the face, chest, and back.
The classification for lesions that helps us discern the severity of acneic skin conditions is called the Dr. Kligman’s acne grading scale. The "Acne grade" will determine the frequency and types of treatment needed and the duration as well as the intensity of the product needed both in-clinic and for home care to control the acne.

The skin is the largest organ of the body and works beautifully as a shield to keep environmental toxins out of the body. The skin‘s purpose is to prevent these toxins from penetrating the body’s delicate internal machinery. Most people don’t realize that the skin and hair have evolved filtration functions. Skin, for example, keeps impurities out by electro-statically filtering chemicals out of the air and concentrating these polluted cells in the epidermal barrier cells, before shedding them.

Remember that dewy skin of your youth? Childhood skin looks tight and toned because of active collagen production in the dermis of the skin. This slows steadily as we get older, eventually causing the skin to grow slack and fine lines and wrinkles to appear. Choosing the most effective treatment plan from all the current available options can be confusing. But if a more youthful appearance is your goal then it's worth knowing that true anti-aging treatments must stimulate collagen production in order to be effective. Facial skin resurfacing is the quickest way to achieve a collagen boost.
