More than 85% of teenagers have this common skin problem, which is marked by clogged pores (whiteheads, blackheads), painful pimples, and, sometimes, hard, deep lumps on the face, neck, shoulders, chest, back, shoulders, and upper arms. Infrequent bowel habits, fluctuating hormone levels, diet, birth control pills, and menstrual periods can trigger acne. Other external acne triggers include heavy cosmetics, hair dyes, and greasy hair ointment, all of which can increase blockage of pores. A series of "no downtime" gentle chemical peels combined with deep cleansing facials, dietary changes and customized product or prescription regimen will effectively reduce breakouts, clogged pores, and scarring, while leaving the skin more clear, balanced, healthy and even-toned.
