Simply put, bacteria and inflammation are the primary causes of complexion problems. Both contribute to the formation of blemishes that are known as acne. Chemical peels in Toronto can help you get rid of acne, and here’s how:
Every skin pore contains bacteria, sebum (natural skin oil), and dead skin cells. If there is inflammation located at the base of a hair follicle, bacteria, dirt and dead cells become trapped. This creates the perfect breeding ground for bacteria then, since it feeds off of dead skin cells and debris, allowing to grow and multiply freely. With increasing levels of bacteria, infection results.
A pore that is rampant with infection can cause one of two blemishes: a pimple or a cyst. A pimple occurs if there is a clear pathway to the surface. Blockage of the pore creates a cyst.
A chemical peel acts as a gentle exfoliant which removes the dirt, debris and sebum trapped in the pores of your skin. Even if the blemish is a cyst, a chemical peel can effectively treat it. At Skin Vitality, chemical peels are incredibly popular for patients who suffer from acne. This treatment has a proven track record as an acne treatment method.
