Whether it’s hormonal, stress related or bacteria related, there are many causes of acne.
Recently we have been seeing more and more patients with acne being aggravated by cell phones and facial threading.
Cell phones are generally held up against your cheek and jaw area. Cell phones pick up bacteria from hands as well as unclean surfaces. A bacterium is then transferred to facial area causing an outbreak.
A method of hair removal called threading is also another culprit of the spread of acne. Threading involves pulling the hair out of the skin by snagging it with a thread.
When hair is being pulled out in various directions it disturbs the normal follicle alignment. When this happens the natural sebum in the skin cannot get through the misaligned pores and follicles, and causes blockages in the skin thus leading to acne. After threading the occurrence acne may be more prevalent on the cheek area or jaw line area as well.
Regardless of the cause of your acne Lasting Looks Clinic in Toronto can offer you the appropriate treatments like chemical peels and laser not only to reduce and clear your acne, but also provide you with a skin regimen to prevent future acne breakouts.
