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 Summer Season has arrived.

"The wild-rose briar is sweet in the spring, Its summer blossoms scent the air;
Yet wait till winter comes again, And who will call the wild-briar fair?" 
Emily Bronte

Institut’ DERMed welcomes the Summer with our Summer Essentials to help guide you through summer fun without the sun damage. None of us want to end up like a "wild-briar" come September and so we've come up with a few recommends designed with just that goal in mind.

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.
