Anita Lee, 25, has suffered from acne on the lower part of her face for many years. Acne is a skin condition characterised by red pimples on the skin, especially on the face, due to inflamed or infected sebaceous glands.
Acne occurs when the oil-producing glands next to hair follicles in the skin produce excess oil (sebum) that block the pores and lead to spots. It can be triggered by a number of factors such as hormonal changes, diet, cosmetics, heredity and so on.
We first advised Anita to change her home care products to our more active range NeoStrata, using the following:
Clarifying facial cleanser, a soap-free cleanser formulated with polyhydroxy acids (PHA) and triclosan to help clear blemishes. Sheer hydration moisturiser, a light oil-free hydrator with patented neo-glucosamine clinically proven to help improve texture and firmness. Oil control lotion, to gently exfoliate, minimise pores and control oiliness.
Anita was then recommended to start a course of six NeoStrata skin peels . This clinically proven, medical-strength peel refines the pore size and smooths skin texture, while providing a healthy glow and suppleness to the skin. Before a NeoStrata skin peel you need to prep your skin 2 weeks in advance with an ultra-smoothing cream. Anita started with 4 treatments of 20% and then 2 treatments of 35%.
Now that Anita’s acne was under control and almost cleared, we recommended that she begin Dermapen sessions to help heal the scars and pigmentation left from the acne.
Anita’s skin looks smoother, clearer and and brighter, and she is very happy with the results. As Dermapen can be used as a rejuvenating treatment Anita now plans to carry on with Dermapen as her monthly facial.
