Genetics, hormone levels, stress and improper skin care regimens can all contribute to acne on our faces, chest, shoulders and back.
Acne is a common condition that can occur at any age. It’s not just an issue for teenagers.
Sheena Wagner, a medical aesthetician at Plastic Surgery & Skin Specialists by BayCare Clinic in Green Bay, sees patients with varying degrees of acne almost every day.
“It’s one of the most common skin concerns people have,” Wagner says. “We see patients nearly every day with the condition – all looking for solutions.”
Acne forms when the pores of the skin become clogged by hair, excess oil, bacteria or dead skin cells. It can be caused by overactive hormones, oily or greasy personal care products, high humidity, restrictive clothing, stress, medications or even genetics.
Wagner and her colleagues at Plastic Surgery & Skin Specialists by BayCare Clinic provide a variety of aesthetic treatments that may help with acne-prone skin, including customized facials, HydraFacial® and skin peels.
“What we can do in the office is only part of the solution,” Wagner says. “The majority of a person’s skin care regimen has to take place at home. People need to develop a daily skin care routine they can stick to.”
New products from LUXE – the pharmaceutical grade skin care line offered by Plastic Surgery & Skin
Specialists by BayCare Clinic – can help make that easier, Wagner says.
The line includes a family of products specifically designed for the treatment of acne on the face, chest and back.
“Until now, we haven’t had a product specifically designed for the treatment of acne,” Wagner says. “We’re really excited about these products and what they will be able to do for our patients.”
New products offer supplemental treatment for acne
The LUXE line of skin care products provides an array of solutions for a variety of skin care concerns, Wagner says.
The products are specially formulated with pharmaceutical grade ingredients to remove surface oils and unclog pores, and to promote smoother, less irritated and more hydrated skin.
All the products are paraben-, oil-, sulfate-, colorant- and fragrance-free. They are hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic, meaning they won’t clog pores.
LUXE products that specifically target acne include: the Purifying Gel Cleanser, the 10% Acne Clearing Cleanser, the Acne Spot Treatment, The Purifying Toning Pads and the Blemish Repair Body Spray.
“These products are gentle enough to be used daily and can brighten, tone and exfoliate skin,” Wagner says. “They’ve been tested and proven to provide relief for acne-prone skin and existing breakouts.”
