This skin problem can be caused by hormonal changes (such as during menstrual periods, puberty, or pregnancy), high stress levels, humidity, sweating, birth control pills, and use of greasy and oily skin products.
Acne affects people of all ages and races – though most commonly people in their teens, early 20’s and 30’s and sometimes even older. According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), acne is caused by the overproduction of androgens, hormones that are present in both males and females, however research has shown that outbreaks in males may be worse due to more skin oils.
The number of treatment sessions depends on your skin condition and unique skin type. A typical treatment plan includes three AFT light therapy treatments and three VI peel treatments. The two are to be done alternately once every month.
