What does acne come from?

On the most basic level, acne comes from clogged and infected pores. Pores are tiny hair follicles in your skin that release oil and sweat. Ideally, pores create the perfect balance to help moisturize the skin without overproducing, but of course, the ideal situation doesn’t always happen. At times, those pores produce too much oil, which can cause acne.

Excess oil, sweat, and dead skin cells get trapped inside your pores, building up until the pore becomes infected. That mixed with bacteria creates pimples and acne. While most common in teenagers, acne can affect people of all ages.

If you suffer from acne, you’re definitely not alone. About 80% of people between the ages of 11 and 30 experience an acne breakout in some variation. That is exactly why acne is one of the most common skin conditions in the U.S.

There typically isn’t a single cause for someone’s acne, which can make it difficult to treat. However, common underlying factors that attribute to breakouts include:

Hormonal changes: Hormones play a major role in oil production. When your hormones become unbalanced or they are constantly changing, your skin may produce more oil, which in turn may lead to more acne. These changes may come from:

  • Puberty
  • Menstrual Cycle
  • Pregnancy
  • Birth control
  • Menopause

Genetics: Unfortunately, genetics tend to control a lot of aspects in your body that you can’t do much about. If a close family member (i.e. your parents) suffered from acne, you’re more likely to face the condition too.

On the bright side, you can always speak to family members about how their acne started and how they treated it. If you have similar acne, understanding the relationship between genetics and your acne can help you better control breakouts in the future.

Diet: Diet doesn’t always lead to acne, but it may be a factor depending on how your body reacts to certain foods. For some people, greasy foods, dairy, and too much refined sugar can cause inflammation that appears on their skin. In those cases, cutting out certain foods can help better manage acne.

Medications: Certain medications such as birth control pills or corticosteroids can cause acne flare ups. In these cases, it’s best to talk to your physician about possible alternative solutions if the acne becomes too severe.

Types of acne

Acne can come in many different forms from small and flesh colored to boil-like and red. When it comes to products, different types of acne may require different skincare routines. However, BBL for acne doesn’t limit its effectiveness to a single type. In fact, we’ve seen the treatment make a difference on almost everyone!

Common types of acne include:

Whiteheads: Whiteheads are enclosed bumps that are filled with pus. They come from dirt, oil, and other debris clogging your pores. Though this form of acne can appear anywhere on the body, they typically form on the face, neck, back, and chest. Whiteheads may also emerge in places where there’s a lot of friction.

Blackheads: Blackheads are a mild form of acne that appear “black” at the surface. When pores become infected, the resulting bump may remain open, and oxygen exposure causes the bump to turn dark or black. Blackheads can also form on the face (especially the nose), neck, back, chest, etc.

Cysts: Cysts, also known as cystic acne, can be a major cause of concern for people who are dealing with the condition. Instead of smaller bumps, cysts are painful, pus-filled lumps that form deep under the skin. When they break, they can cause further outbreaks, which can be extremely frustrating.

Pustules: A pustule is a large pimple that’s often red and filled with pus. They typically emerge when the body is trying to fight off an infection. Because of this, acne isn’t always the source of a pustule. For example, they may also come from psoriasis or rosacea.

Papules: Papules are small, red bumps that don’t have a yellow or white center. However, in many cases, papules become larger pustules in a matter of days.

How does BBL for acne work?

Regardless of which type of acne you have, BBL for acne targets clogged pores and discoloration for clear, smooth skin. To understand how Forever Clear BBL works, let’s step back and talk about broadband light therapy.

First off, broadband light is not the same as a laser, though many people will use the two interchangeably. Although they both use light energy to heat tissue and promote collagen production, they also have key differences.

Laser therapy uses ablative or non-ablative wavelengths (or both when it comes to the Halo laser). Ablative wavelengths target the top layer of skin (epidermis) while non-ablative wavelengths target the deeper layers (dermis).

On the other hand, broadband light uses visible light therapy, which is always a non-ablative technique. Pulses of controlled, high-intensity light heat your skin’s tissue, kickstarting the body’s natural healing process. During healing, fibroblasts (collagen-producing cells) work overtime to create more collagen. That means that you’ll continue to see your results improve long after your treatment is done.

Since the epidermis is left unharmed, light therapy greatly reduces downtime and discomfort, while still attacking a variety of skin conditions. As a result, skin becomes clearer, smoother, and more youthful with less risk.

Specifically, Forever Clear BBL, distributes heat and light energy through dual-lamp technology to fight acne and treat discoloration.

Blue light: Blue light eliminates acne-causing bacteria that lurk within your pores. This helps to clear out infections and prevent new pimples from forming.

Yellow light: Yellow light then targets inflammation and redness to reduce hyperpigmentation and rosacea.

Infrared light: Infrared light follows the blue and yellow lights. Through gentle pulses, infrared light initiates the body’s natural healing process, promoting collagen production. As a result, your skin may look younger and it can reduce the appearance of acne scarring.

As a result, BBL for acne can treat a variety of acne-related conditions such as:

  • Acne
  • Acne scars
  • Rosacea
  • Large pores
  • Redness

It also works for areas on the body, including the:

  • Face
  • Chest
  • Back

How to Find the Best BBL Acne Treatment in Rochester

Before the treatment

You will first meet with one of our specialists for a free one-hour consultation. During that time, we’ll talk about your specific goals regarding your acne and any other skin or aesthetic concerns you might have. From there we’ll evaluate your skin to ensure BBL for acne is right for you. In some cases, we may also recommend complementary treatments such as dermaplaning to maximize your skin-clearing results.

During the treatment

During your Forever Clear BBL treatment, our trained specialist will use the innovative device to radiate pulses of heat and broadband light energy into the treatment area(s).

First, we use a blue light treatment to target acne-causing bacteria deep within your pores. Then we treat the area with yellow BBL to eliminate redness and irritation. The last step is infrared light treatment. Using gentle pulses, the infrared light initiates the body’s natural healing process to promote collagen production.

Depending on the client, the process may take between 30 to 40 minutes.

After the treatment

After your Forever Clear BBL treatment, you’re free to leave the office and go about your day! There’s no recovery period, so you don’t have to worry about downtime or taking off work. You may experience some mild redness immediately after, but that usually goes away within a few hours. You’ll soon notice improvement in your skin’s tone and texture, giving you clear, glowing skin that’ll help you feel more confident than ever!

To reap the full benefits, we may recommend a series of multiple treatments.
