teenage acne treatment

I often get asked advice by my clients regarding their child’s teenage acne, it still never ceases to amaze me the advice they are given by the doctors and the products recommended to use.

In some severe cases of acne, a product called roacutane is prescribed for delicate skin, this has some awful side effects and often does not give the desired result, clear skin! Here are a few of the side effects;

  • Dry or fragile skin
  • Itching
  • Joint pains
  • Nosebleed
  • Fatigue
  • Headache
  • Peeling palms or soles
  • Rash – continuing years later
  • Skin infections
  • Sunburn-sensitive skin

I am very passionate about skin care and educating people about what they are using on their skin; what’s in the products they use and how these may be causing irritation on the skin.

Teenage Acne Treatment – New Dawn Boutique

Due to my passion, I partnered with the IIAA around 8 years ago, I was looking to stock a good make up brand that was a natural as possible to use on acneic and problematic skin. I started researching Jane Iredale Mineral make up and believed it to be the best fit for my business. I was very happy to discover that not only did they provide a good mineral make up they also developed products to treat acne and problematic skins internally, Accumax.

I have never been disappointed in Jane Iredale Mineral make up and personally would not use anything else on my skin.

Unlike many high street brands such as Mac and Bare minerals, which by the way, only carry between 4-7% in mineral, Jane Iredale is 100% mineral; meaning it will not block pores, cause sensitisation or harbour bacteria. This can not be said for the other brands which contain sensitisers, talc and fillers that stop the skin from breathing, can irritate and create problematic skin.

This is especially worrying when high street brands are at the top of most teenagers wish list, at a time when the skin needs to be nourished and cared for, with the most natural ingredients possible; it is instead being blocked and irritated.

We know how difficult it is to explain and be heard as a parent, so we are offering child & parent one to one consultations with a trained therapist, who can discuss all of your options.

Our philosophy is to treat the skin from within with Accumax, nourish and fortify and protect with Jane Iredale Mineral make up.

Special offer, one-hour consultation plus a free starter kit worth £39.95 all this for just £20!

Welcome my blog, this week I am going to discuss a topic that can be very stressful for both adults and adolescents; acne.

Acne traditionally begins in puberty, but it also affects adults too. Approximately 80% of teenagers suffer with some form of acne, there seem to numerous myths about what the causes are. Let’s look at some of the known facts;

Acne, medically known as Acne Vulgaris, is a disease of the skin which involves the oil glands at the base of hair follicles. Acne comprises of spots and painful bumps on the surface of the skin. It is mostly seen on the face, but can also appear on the shoulders, back and buttocks. Scarring can be experienced caused by severe acne.

What are the causes of acne?

There is no solid evidence as to what causes acne, however, it commonly appears  during puberty, when the sebaceous (oil) glands start to release oil – the glands are stimulated by male hormones, androgen, released by the adrenal glands in both males and females.

Androgen can over-stimulate the oil-producing sebaceous glands, in turn this causes blocked pores, stopping the oil from reaching the skins surface.  Acne is a skin bacterium that attacks this trapped oil, generating waste products; which inflame the sebaceous glands, the result is blackheads, whiteheads or pimples.

Some research indicates that a receptiveness to acne may also be genetic. Some medications that contain androgen and lithium have also been shown to cause acne.

Greasy, comedogenic cosmetics can also cause acne in some predisposed people or aggravate the condition. Most high street products, even those with a hefty price tag will contain chemicals that block the pores and stop the skin from breathing.

Traditional ways to treat acne.

Treating acne can feel like a mine field, clever advertising and marketing will have you believe that expensive products designed to treat acne will work.

I have seen numerous clients over the years that have indeed spent hundreds of pounds in a quest to clear their acne with little or no resolve.

Before using an acne treatment from the high street I would highly recommend that you look out for any of the following ingredients:

Benzoyl peroxide: This is a particularly common ingredient in many acne medications, it works under the skin, in doing so it destroys oil and bacteria, although this dries the skin itself. There is also a deliberation that it may also increase your risk of cancer. Using an ingredient that dries out the skin, has an opposite effect to what is required, thus, the skin produces more oil to counteract this drying out.

In addition to this if there is existing scarring and damage to the skin, this ingredient can worsen it.

Sulfur: Another popular ingredient used in acne products. Sulfur essentially dries out your skin, (in addition to the benzoyl your skin really does not need anymore drying), When used on active acne or an open wound on the skin, sulfur may trigger acne scars and worsen the problem. On top of that sulfur has a high PH level that boosts the growth of bacteria on your skin.

Zinc oxide: This ingredient is commonly used in sunscreens. it blocks the skin from absorbing vitamin D and is thought to cause the lack of this vitamin in children and adults. It has also been shown to cause whitening of the skin.

Whilst there are a heap of other ingredients in acne product these are the main culprits.

At New Dawn we have many safe, effective and proven treatments available to treat acne, however, we believe that starting from within is the key to ongoing success.

Radio frequency facelift

In the past few years of working with the Lipofirm Plus plus for skin tightening I have had the pleasure of performing the radio frequency facelift, for both men and women who have wanted to recapture their youth.

What they have all had in common is their passion for finding a treatment that delivers the promise of less wrinkled, plumper younger looking skin without the use of fillers, botox and surgery.

One client summed it up nicely when she said “I would like my skin to look tighter, but I don’t want to look like I have been in a wind tunnel”. I feel this sums the essence of my whole ethos regarding anti-ageing.

You may now be wondering what the treatment entails, let me explain;

Radio Frequency facelift are a non-surgical wrinkle treatment- also referred to as the “non-surgical facelift”. These treatments are FDA Approved and carry no risk.

Irina side before and after

Radio frequency facelift : Benefits

Radio frequency facelift delivers two different effects:

Thermal Energy – The main of premise of the treatment is radio frequency; this thermal energy penetrates deep into the skin, causing a heating of the dermal layer. In response fresh healthy collagen is realised, this works its way to the surface of the skin; where new collagen fibres are created in the fibroblasts. Resulting in tighter plumper skin, in addition there is an increase of oxygen and nutrients which become available to further support the natural regenerative processes.

Stimulation Using the micro-current provides stimulation to the surface of the skin by the use of the hand piece. Massage encourages blood flow to the surface of the skin, heling to maintain the health of the epidermis, leaving you with a youthful “glow”.

Radiofrequency Facelift delivers a non-invasive, safe and painless treatment to recover the youthfulness of your skin. A clinical study of this radio frequency facelift facial reported a significant reduction in wrinkles in over 80% of patients treated. This reduction was evident three months after the last treatment, promising long-lasting results, with instant improvement.

Radio frequency facelift

The technology of Radio frequency has transformed the removal of wrinkles and fine lines, creating a promising alternative or complement to Advance nutrition Programme and anti-ageing make up range.

During the radio frequency facial the anti-ageing products drive deeper into the dermis and cutaneous layers of the skin, causing a two pronged attack. The effects of this are lifting, firming, plumping and lessening of wrinkles, improved skin tightness, whilst also promoting the natural production of collagen.Irina front before and after

Radio frequency is suitable for both face and body rejuvenation.  It allows the therapist to treat different types of blemishes on the face, neck, décolleté and body and areas plagued with skin relaxation (e.g. arms and inner thigh), ptosis (droopy eyelid) and cellulite.
