How to achieve beautiful skin
Blackheads are plugged oil glands (sebaceous glands) that have oxidized and pores are the openings of these oil glands to the surface; they become enlarged when irritated and inflamed by the build up of oil (sebum) and bacteria (acne pimples). This leads to active acne pustules and secondary scarring. Much of this can be avoided or minimized by a personalized medical skin care program that cleanses without irritating, removes oil and cellular debris and keeps pores clear, calms and and reduces inflammation, and hydrates without occluding and irritating the pores. New research proven topical products and services such as LED light therapy can dramatically improve results. Lasers may be a later option for improving acne scars but the first priority is controlling inflammation and calming the skin thru the proper use of the above by an experienced skin care physician and medical aesthetician.
