What is acne?

The skin contains about fifteen tallow glands(sebaceous glands) per square centimeter. These glands produce tallow to help keep the skin smooth The sebaceous glands show out from the hair follicles. If the openings of the hair follicles become clogged, acne develop.

Acne is a skin disease of the sebaceous glands, which affects almost everyone in puberty. The term is acne vulgaris. Adults may also suffer from it. Acne can manifest itself in a variety of ways.For some it is only some unobtrusive pimples, while for others is a major condition in the face (nose, forehead, cheeks). These pimples can also occur elsewhere on the body (back, shoulders, neck or neck). Pustules and infiltrates may also develop in the skin that can be quite painful and high.


Prior to treatment, a thorough intake interview takes place with a skin examination. After this skin examination, a treatment plan is drawn up. The treatment plan covers the products you need to reduce the acne and additional home couseling.

The acne traetment from a skin therapist's focuses on manually cleansing the skin. Blackheads and whiteheads are removed using a thin needle. The purpose of the treatment is to reduce inflammation and prevent scarring. In addition, skin care advice is given. After acne is reduced or remedied, sometimes there may be some scars or a coarse skin structure.

Additional treatment
