This guide explores the causes of acne, how to treat it, and how the Clinical Clarifying Acne Facial at Kate Kerr London can help to transform troubled skin into a radiant, healthy complexion.

Understanding acne: Beyond the surface

Acne, commonly referred to as acne vulgaris, is a complex skin condition characterised by the appearance of papules, pustules,  blackheads, whiteheads, and sometimes more severe lesions such as cysts and nodules. Far from a condition reserved for the teenage years, acne spans across various age groups. It’s caused by several factors including excess oil (sebum) production – those with acne tend to have an oily skin type – impaired skin renewal – leading to a buildup of dead skin cells, the proliferation of acne-causing bacteria and the activation of inflammation.

What can cause or exacerbate acne?

We still don’t know exactly why some people experience acne and others don’t, however, there are a number of risk factors that can contribute to and worsen acne, including: 

  • Hormonal changes due to puberty, pregnancy, perimenopause and the menopause
  • Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) and other endocrine conditions
  • Smoking cigarettes and recreational drug use
  • Poor sleep
  • Periods of extreme tress
  • Use of cleansers, creams, moisturisers, and other products that are oil-based or have high oil content
  • Certain medications, including lithium, some types of hormonal birth control, anticonvulsants, steroids and B12 injections
  • A family history of acne
  • Poor diet
  • Intense exercise and weight lifting

Why consider acne treatment?

Acne treatment is not only about improving how the skin looks by minimising breakouts and acne scarring; it’s a crucial step towards enhancing skin health and overall wellbeing. The benefits of seeking professional acne treatment include:

  • Reduction of excess sebum: Sebum leads to inflammation, which can cause acne, rosacea and even hyperpigmentation. Controlling sebum production is the cornerstone of an acne skin treatment.
  • Extraction of comedones: Extensive extraction meticulously clear blackheads and whiteheads, alongside dead skin and impurities to prevent future breakout.
  • Diminishing existing acne: Targeted treatments heal and calm breakout. They minimise the chances of scarring and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. 
  • Prevention of new breakouts: By addressing the root causes, minimising sebum production and regulating cell renewal, the treatments prevent future congestion and acne breakouts.
  • Improved skin texture: Beyond clearing acne, professional treatments enhance the skin’s texture, making it smoother with obvious luminosity. 
  • Reduction of acne scars and hyperpigmentation: Advanced aesthetic treatments help to diminish scars and uneven skin tone caused by previous breakouts. 
  • A radiant glow: Ultimately, professional acne treatments restore the skin’s health, leading to a strong and resilient skin that behaves predictably and glows from within.

Targeting the four key acne contributors

The Clinical Clarifying Acne Facial isn’t just for those with visible breakouts or a full face of acne, it’s also great for simply ensuring the skin is calm, predictable and glowing. With a comprehensive approach, this facial targets the four contributing factors that lead to the development of acne. These are:

  • Regulating oil flow: By reducing oil or sebum production, the facial helps to minimise shine and prevents blackheads and whiteheads from developing.
  • Stimulating skin cell turnover: The treatment normalises skin cell production to prevent a buildup of dead skin cells that cause blackheads and whiteheads. This also helps to strengthen the skin’s barrier to protect it from the environment, making it less favourable to acne-causing bacteria.
  • Inhibiting acne-causing bacteria: By minimising the presence of P. acnes bacteria, the facial significantly reduces inflammation and potential outbreaks.
  • Calming inflammation: The facial reduces the skin’s inflammatory response, resulting in calmer skin that has less acne scarring and inflamed spots.
