Acne vulgaris is a very common skin disorder in adolescence but, in some cases, it may prolong or even appear in adulthood. The outbreak of acne depends on the subjective genetic predisposition associated with increased sebum production and the proliferation of bacteria habitually living on the skin. Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory disease characterized by erythema, telangiectasia (red and fine capillaries), oedema and papules. Sometimes pustules and nodules may be present. It mainly affects female subjects aged between 30 and 50 years. Rarely observed on very dark skins. In addition to youth acne, there are situations that predispose to the appearance of acne even in adulthood:
- use of oily topical products that cause pore obstruction, such as sunscreen, cosmetics, oils;
- use of oral or topical cortisone;
- use of vitamin B complexes, iodine and other drugs;
- hormonal disorders and polycystic ovary;
- emotional stress.
Since the forms of acne are very different from one another, their treatment can also take advantage of different methods:
- topical homeopathic therapy (creams, lotions);
- deep outpatient facial cleansing (removal of comedones);
- outpatient chemical peeling (salicylic acid, glycolic acid);
- antibiotics and systemic retinoids;
- normalization of the skin: a four-step path. Deep cleansing, ionization, essential oil massages and masks suitable for any skin type. This cleanses the skin, rebalances the level of hydration and decreases sebaceous secretion, giving vitality back to the skin;
- blue LED light photo biomodulation: decreases the proliferation of acne-responsible bacteria. It soothes inflammatory lesions painlessly and without irritation. It does not cause photosensitivity.
