Acne therapy



Acne is one of the most common skin conditions. It is a combination of excessive sebum production, a build-up of dead skin cells, redness combined with inflammation and the proliferation of bacteria. Acne is not only limited to the face, but also occurs on the neck, chest and back. The exact cause of acne is so far unknown, reallyter there are certain aspects that have a big rol play in acne such as familial predisposition, changing endocrine system, nutrition and stress. Acne can occur both at a younger and older age. There are many different types of acne, below is a summary of the most common forms that can be found within skin therapeutic practice:

  • acne vulgaris
    This is the most common form of acne. Also known as 'youth pimples'. With this form of acne, there are several blackheads and / or pimples on the skin. 

  • Acne conglobata
    This is a severe form of acne vulgaris, with severely inflamed pimples, possibly deep abscesses, open comedones and gross scars. 

  • Acne Excoriée de jeunes filles
    This form of acne does not so much consist of inflammation and pimples, but small scars. This is caused by scratching and/or squeezing the spots on the skin.

  • Acne Cosmetics
    This form of acne is caused by the use of cosmetics. Characteristic is the appearance of pimples and/or blackheads in the areas where cosmetic products regularly come into contact, such as along the hairline. 

  • Acne Comedonica
    In this form of acne, the comedones or better known as blackheads are in the foreground. There are little to no inflammations with this type of acne. 

  • Acne Ectopics
    The literal translation of ectopica is 'in other places'. This form of acne therefore occurs in different places than normal acne. In this type of acne, there is a chronic inflammation of the hair follicles. This is usually in the groin / armpits.

  • Acne Tarda
    This form of acne is also called 'adult acne'. It mainly occurs in women 25 years and older. With this type of acne, there are more inflammations and pimples than blackheads.

Treatment options

There are several treatments available for acne. The classic treatment consists of a deep cleaning. This treatment is often chosen at the beginning of a treatment process to first remove all inflammation. After the inflammation has been removed, multiple treatments can be applied such as medical peels,dermapenor a combination. These treatments are used to prevent blockages and to reduce scars / discolorations.

With the help of these treatments, the skin therapist removes the dead skin cells so that the pores are free again to drain the sebum. If the skin is treated regularly, blackheads or comedones are less likely to occur. In addition, skin renewal is stimulated by the removal of dead skin cells. SkinsClinique offers different treatment combinations depending on the situation. These are discussed and advised during the intake interview.

Skins Advice

  • Ensure good personal hygiene (clean the face twice a day with recommended products)

  • Avoid scratching or squeezing the spots yourself, as this can lead to aggravation of the acne and even scars

  • Avoid excessive cleaning with water/soap/alcohol. This causes the skin to produce extra sebum

  • Pay attention when using cosmetics, it is best to purchase products without parabens, alcohol and perfume, this limits the irritation of the skin.

  • Avoid sweating, saunas or hot showers for 48 hours after treatment

  • Protect the skin after the treatment and during the entire course against the sun with an SPF 30 or 50

  • During the entire treatment process, avoid the sun (nebank) as much as possible

  • It is advised not to wear facial make-up for 24 hours after the treatment.
