Acne forms when the pores around your hair follicles become clogged. Sebum (the oily substance on your skin) is released by the sebaceous gland deep within your skin to help keep your skin hydrated and protect your skin’s natural barrier. Excess oil combined with dead skin cells allows bacteria to grow in the clogged pore and creates a lesion or pimple. Most people experience some form of acne in their lifetime, but it’s particularly prevalent in teens and young adults. That said, acne can form at almost age and for a number of reasons. For some people, acne clears over time or with the help of targeted cleansers and topical treatments. But for others, acne persists or reappears at intervals well into adulthood and can be challenging to treat.
Artful Aesthetics is excited to introduce AviClear, the first and only FDA-cleared laser treatment for the treatment of mild, moderate, and severe acne.
