A beautiful young woman with a blemish-free face; let Envision Medical Spa in Leduc free you from the pain of acne.

Acne

An Array of Options for Real Relief is Just a Call Away


For the afflicted, acne is no laughing matter.

A common condition which can lead to pimples, cysts and other blemishes on the face and upper body, acne affects 1 in 5 Canadian women and an alarming 90% of our teens, according to this acne information site. The website, funded by the Acne and Rosacea Society of Canada, also shows how acne is the most prevalent skin disorder in our nation. Although young people are more prone to getting acne than older people, the frustrating affliction does not spare any age, gender or ethnic group from its physical and mental effects. Estimates suggest acne afflicts almost 5 million Canadians.

Root CausesAcne can be a real struggle - Envision can help

Clogged pores are usually to blame when acne flairs up. The source of these blockages is often a buildup of dead skin cells, which the body continually sheds, combined with our natural skin oil known as sebum. (Acne is not an indication of a lack of cleanliness or the result of a chocolate addiction. These are "old wives tales" and thoroughly debunked by health scientists.)

It's a Trap!

Cast off skin cells and sebum can plug pores and trap bacteria inside. The bacteria, oil and skin cell mix is an irritant which can cause the follicle wall to fester and erupt into an all-too familiar acne lesion. Why some individuals experience an over-production of skin oil is not completely understood but a number of causes have been identified including:

  • heredity factors,
  • contaminated or overly greasy cosmetics,
  • high humidity,
  • the presence of certain hormones,
  • some pharmaceuticals. 

Hope for Acne Sufferers

Although acne is not a fatal disease, it can be painful. The most damaging aspect, however, is in the mental anguish it produces in the afflicted. Thankfully, Envision Medical Spa offers a wide array of helpful anti-acne products as well as treatments which can reduce and even eliminate the annoying eruptions. We also have methods to erase much of the scarring which can result from a serious acne episode. Click the links for more information on each type of therapy.
