Skin Breakouts: Why You Get Pimples And The Treatments That Target Acne

Following on from part 1 of our blog series on Acne: The Three Causes Of Acne, we take a closer look at treatment options that will eliminate pimple breakouts by directly targeting the three main causes of acne - bacteria, excess oil and inflammation.


Treatments That Will Target Acne Bacteria, Reduce Excess Oil And Calm Inflammation:

Ensuring you are using the correct home care regimen to address the three main factors contributing to acne skin breakouts is the first step in managing acne-prone skin.

The Australian Skin Institute’s Oily Acne Skin Kit features a potent cosmeceutical cleanser, active brush on glycolic and lactic acid exfoliant, plus a clarifying and detoxifying cream. Used as part of your daily regime, this powerful trio will fight acne skin breakouts by unclogging blocked pores, reducing excess oil on the skin’s surface and calming redness and irritation caused by P.acne bacteria.

In addition, having regular in-clinic skin treatments will not only accelerate recovery results but also help to support your home maintenance efforts to ensure acne skin breakouts are kept at bay:


Anti-Acne Peel: This treatment combines the highly effective, clinic-strength ASI Salicylic Acid Pro Peel with professional extractions to deeply exfoliate the skin while removing blackheads, whiteheads, milia and pustules safely and without scaring.

Once the pores have been cleared of sebum plugs and congestions, a combination of healing peptides, growth factors and deeply hydrating hyaluronic acid is used to calm and soothe redness and inflammation while assisting the skin in restoring balance to the surface layer.

Recommended as a weekly, monthly or ‘as needed’ treatment, depending on the severity of the acne, our Brazilian Beauty professional Skin Therapists will discuss and design a treatment plan to deliver the best possible ongoing results for your individual needs.

LED Light Therapy: Blue and red LED light therapy is now widely accepted as an effective treatment for managing excess oil production in the skin and controlling P.acne bacteria that leads to red and inflamed skin breakouts.

Unlike topical treatments that decrease bacteria on the skin’s surface, LED Light Therapy penetrates deep down into the skin’s hair follicles and pores to eliminate the P.acne bacteria colonising within the skin. Highly sensitive to blue light, LED Light Therapy shuts down their metabolism, killing the bacteria before they have the opportunity to feed off the oil glands and multiply to cause the inflammation that results in acne breakouts.

Combined with red light, LED Light Therapy also encourages the skin to heal and strengthen by stimulating collagen and elastin production and speeding up the skin’s cellular turnover, helping to reduce and fade acne scarring, shrink pores and revitalise the skin’s protective surface.

LED Light Therapy is an acne-prone skin’s best friend and is used weekly as part of an ongoing acne management plan, is very effective in preventing the cascade of events that leads to an eventual acne skin breakout.
