    But first, we want to tell you that acne is NOT your fault. It’s natural and it is treatable. We can help you.

     

    Many different things can cause teenage acne and just because something works for your friends, or even for your sister, does not mean it will work for you. Skin type, age and a range of other factors are at play when it comes to assessing the cause of your teen acne.

    Why Do I Get Acne?

     

    Pimples begin as blockages to sebaceous (oil) gland ducts and usually happens during puberty.  When certain hormones are released those hormones cause the sebaceous glands to overproduce sebum (oil). Dead skin cells and bacteria on the surface of the skin can combine with the sebum to form a plug in the hair follicles. These plugs are known as closed comedones (whiteheads) or open comedones (blackheads).

     

    Oil continues to be produced and the blocked gland keeps getting bigger and bigger. Bacteria grow in the blocked gland and produce fatty acids. Eventually, it bursts and releases the irritating substances, causing intense inflammation. The inflammation manifests as pimples.

     

    Types of Acne

     

    A person who suffers from acne typically has a mixture of different types of spots, including:

     

    • blackheads,
    • whiteheads,
    • papules,
    • pustules,
    • nodules,
    • and cysts.

     

    Acne usually occurs on the face, neck, chest, back and shoulders where there are large numbers of sebaceous glands.

     

    How to Get Rid of Acne

     

    Over-the-counter acne treatment can only go so far to help adolescent acne and does not help with the pigmentation that results from picking at or popping pimples. However, it can be professionally treated with the right products (including medical grade facial peels) and prescription creams, laser, light and heat therapy, and even acne scar treatment. Unlike OTC drugs, these treatments are non-invasive and will not mess with your hormones.

     

    Here at Bradford Skin Clinic, we have all the tools, products and experience to help you get rid of teenage acne. We will assess your skin and come up with the perfect treatment plan, which may consists of a combination of some or all of the following:

     

    • Dead Sea minerals
    • Clay peels
    • Laser acne treatment
    • Zyderma
    • iS Clinical Active Serum

    Try some of medical grade facial peels!

  • IPL Near Me

    IPL Near MeGoogle, find a clinic that does IPL Near Me

    Are you looking for a client that does IPL in Simcoe County, Ontario? Bradford Skin Clinic and Med Spa often sees patients from Holland Landing, Aurora, Sharon Barrie Orillia and other areas who travel to the clinic for superior permanent hair removal treatments.

    IPL and True Laser Hair Removal

    When it comes to permanent hair removal, many people don’t know that there’s a difference between IPL and true laser hair removal.

    IPL hair removal uses a multifunctional platform with multiple different wands to target a variety of conditions, including broken capillaries, collagen building and pigmentation. It’s a cheaper option than true lasers for spas.

    True laser systems, such as Mediostar requires a significant investment. It can take a while for a spa to save up enough to afford a specialist true laser machine, which offers targeted permanent hair removal.

    “I found a spa that offers IPL near me, but what’s the difference?”

    IPL and laser both use light energy which the dark hair pigments absorb. The laser causes damage to the hair follicles, which ultimately destroys the hair root and reduce hair growth.

    Laser’s unique properties include:

    • Unlike ordinary light, laser does not cancel itself out. It is coherent.
    • Laser light waves are parallel and divergent (collimated) which makes it potent. Therefore, almost all the light can be used for hair reduction treatment.
    • Laser light emissions are of the same wavelength (chromatic) which makes them more potent.

    These characteristics make lasers a fantastic tool to selectively target specific chromophores by targeting melanin. The lasers deeply penetrate the target, but it avoids being absorbed by other chromophores.

    IPL is actually not laser at all. In fact, it produces a broad spectrum of wavelengths, similar to a light bulb. IPL cannot be concentrated or focused into a beam to selectively target chromophores.

    The variety of wavelengths that are distributed at different depths makes it difficult for the light to be effectively absorbed into hair follicles. These factors make IPL less effective than true laser hair removal treatment and that is why IPL is much cheaper than true laser hair removal – it is less effective.

    Bradford Skin Clinic for True Laser and IPL Near Me

    If you’re looking for effective permanent hair removal, book a true laser treatment with one of our qualified therapists. Our MeDioStar machine achieves superior results. Many of our clients see a 80% reduction after only four to eight treatments.

    If you still need IPL treatment for capillaries, pigmentation, pore reduction, redness and rosacea, we can help with that, too.
