Acne Treatments at Papillon Bleu Aesthetics in Vancouver, Burnaby & Coquitlam, BC

Acne is a skin condition that occurs when your hair follicles become plugged with oil and dead skin cells. It causes whiteheads, blackheads or pimples. Acne is most common among teenagers, though it affects people of all ages. Severe Acne conditions can lead to creating Acne Scars conditions, at Papillon Bleu we have treatments techniques specific to treating both Acne & Acne Scars.

What is a common symptom of acne?

Acne symptoms can be seen as: Whiteheads which are closed plugged pores, Blackheads which are open plugged pores, Papules which are visibly small red, tender bumps, Pustules or Pimples which are Papules with pus at their tips, Nodules which tend to be large, solid, painful lumps under the skin and lastly Cystic Lesions which tends to be painful pus-filled lumps.

How do they form?

A few key factors that can be the cause of Acne formation on the skin are excess oil or sebum production, hair follicles clogged by oil and dead skin cells, bacteria and skin inflammation. Acne typically appears on your face, forehead, chest, upper back and shoulders because these areas of skin have the most oil in the sebaceous glands.
