Acne is a chronic, inflammatory skin condition that causes spots and pimples, especially on the face, shoulders, back, neck, chest, and upper arms. This skin condition can lead not only to poor skin, but also emotional distress for many people. Whiteheads, blackheads, pimples, cysts, and nodules are all types of acne. They commonly occur during puberty, when the sebaceous glands activate, but it can occur at any age. It is not dangerous, but it can leave pigmented and pitted scarring on the skin, which can be difficult to correct. The good news is You By Sia has effective acne treatments and facial treatment for blackheads available.
Traditionally we have been taught to use astringent harsh drying products and chemical peels in the past to correct the condition. At You By Sia we believe that this is merely treating the symptoms and possibly making the condition worse.
We use a unique approach to repair the inflammation, get the bacteria under control and rebuild the damaged skin so that the client is not left with marks and long term scarring.

Whiteheads, blackheads, pimples, cysts, and nodules are all types of acne. They commonly occur during puberty, when the sebaceous glands activate, but it can occur at any age. It is not dangerous, but it can leave pigmented and pitted scarring down the track which can be difficult to correct.
Acne Treatment depends on how severe and persistent the acne is. Some factors that contribute to this are genetics, menstruation, stress, hot/humid climates, and using oil based makeup or skincare. Squeezing can also spread the infection underneath the skin.
Cystic acne is the acne most prone to develop pitting and scarring in later life. You By Sia has a number of cystic acne treatments, including our medical grade skin care, LED and ultrasonic facials, and our laser treatments, which kill infection and repair the skin. These are also excellent facial treatments for blackheads and are proven to get results.
