Acne can be caused by external factors. Ask yourself whether you’re using too much oily product, whether your makeup bag is clean, how often you’re changing your sheets, whether your phone is dirty, whether you’re using too much hair product, whether you’re not washing makeup off properly before going to bed, overusing products or changing products too rapidly.
Acne can also be caused by internal factors, like stress, medications, consuming fatty food, going off birth control, nursing, pregnancy or high-intensity workouts. The skin can act out, because that’s the final toxin-releasing organ. Start by narrowing down the changes you’ve made, and then figure out if you need to change your diet. If you’re coming off of birth control pills, you’ll need 6 to 7 months before your skin starts clearing up. If you’re experiencing under-the-skin congestion–blackheads or whiteheads–it has to be extracted.
Come for a free consultation. Our aestheticians will put you on a plan and make at-home recommendations. Everybody thinks acne will go away on its own, but facials will speed up the process. If the causes are internal, you can try facials and products, but if there’s an issue with your oil glands, we would recommend seeing a dermatologist for medication or medical solutions.
- Steam and Milia Extraction (our most economical solution if you’re getting congested quickly)
- Camden Spa Facial (for the price-conscious, our basic facial includes a calming mask after the extractions, so you don’t leave looking red or blotchy)
- Deep Cleanse Facial (our most thorough facial, the Deep Cleanse can be alternated with the Steam and Milia Extractions)
- Sensitive Skin Facial (calms acne-prone skin to bring down the redness and swelling around acne)
- Lactic and Glycolic Peels (helps with existing acne and scarring, regenerates skin faster)
