Acne Scars

THE SEVEN COMMANDMENTS


1. ACNE SCARS CAN LEAD TO DISFIGUREMENT

The most obvious effects of acne is its physical manifestations. Pop a pimple and it will bleed, and scar eventually. Facial scars are a particular problem especially if you are concerned with the way you look, or if your livelihood depends on maintaining smooth and radiant skin—such as in industries like modelling, sales, or in the service line ie. a flight attendant amongst others.

2. ACNE SCARS CAN CAUSE PSYCHOLOGICAL EFFECTS
In some extreme cases; acne scarring may even affect one’s self-esteem, preventing individuals from relating well with others. Such low self-esteem will not only affect their personal relationships, but also the way in which they deal with work situations such as daily interactions with co-workers or head hunters during job interviews etc.

3. ACNE SCARS CAN AFFECT WORK PRODUCTIVITY
This is due to a combination of the physical and psychological effects that people suffering with acne commonly experience.  Feelings of embarrassment from acne outbreaks and having to engage with co-workers cause some people to skip work altogether until after the acne breakout has subsided. Unfortunately, this attitude towards acne breakouts ultimately affects work productivity, and may eventually put their employment at risk should they skip work often enough.

 4. ACNE SCARS NOT ONLY AFFLICTS TEENAGERS
Most people assume acne afflicts only teenagers. However, the reality is that you won’t necessarily be pimple free for the rest of your life. With more than 20 years of unrivalled experience in acne management and clearance, Face of Man can thus help you achieve a clearer and healthier complexion which will address all your acne and acne scar woes.

5. NOT ALL ACNE SCARS ARE CREATED EQUAL

When it comes to battling breakouts, you can’t assume all acne is created equal. “Acne has several different causes, each with its own set of treatments, so it can be challenging to find the right combination that works for you and your skin. Therefore, we can confidently say at Face of Man that having more than 20 years of experience in skincare solution and eliminating acne scarring does matter!”

6.  NO ACNE OR ACNE SCARS SHOULD CAUSE DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY
DEPRESSSION AND ANXIETY
But they do! Many studies have been done on the effects of acne on quality of life. Statistics show thatdepression and anxiety are more common in those with acne than the general population.Interestingly, acne severity does not seem to be a factor in the level of depression or anxiety. Those with mild acne are just as likely to suffer from these conditions as those with more severe cases.Surprisingly, adults are more likely than their younger counterparts to feel that acne negatively affects their lives — regardless of how severe their acne is. This may be because their acne has been longer-lasting or resistant to treatment, or because there is a greater social stigma for adults with acne.

 7.  NO ACNE OR ACNE SCARS SHOULD MAKE YOU LESSER
SOCIAL WITHDRAWAL
In a society that places great emphasis on appearance, acne sufferers often feel uncomfortable or embarrassed by their appearance which may even lead to feelings of guilt or shame, as if they are somehow responsible for their acne or acne scars. These feelings can prevent a sufferer from engaging in day to day social interactions.

For others, the presence of acne or acne scarring may influence daily decisions. A woman may be so self-conscious of her appearance that she won’t pose in family pictures during a reunion. A teenage boy might decline an invitation to go swimming with friends because his back acne embarrasses him. Some sufferers have trouble looking others in the eye, while others completely avoid all social situations. This is the power acne can wield.

 WHY TREAT ACNE SCARS EARLY?
LOWER THE RISK OF PHYSICAL AND EMOTIONAL DAMAGE.
Depending on its severity, acne can cause emotional distress and lead to scarring of the skin. The good news is that effective treatments are available to reduce the risk of acne scarring — and the earlier that treatment is started, the lower your risk of long term physical and emotional damage.

Acne is a skin condition that occurs when your hair follicles become plugged with oil and dead skin cells. Acne most commonly appears on your face, neck, chest, back and shoulders.

Cystic acne is one of the most common acne varieties affecting most teenagers. It is one of the most serious forms of acne that can cause scarring. Squeezing and popping acne without proper technique and sterilization can lead to serious acne scarring.

The good news is that cystic acne is the easiest to treat with the advancement of technology in acne therapy. At Face of Man, we utilise the latest IPL machine, harnessing the energy of laser and intense pulse light set with a wavelength of 450nm to destroy the P.acne bacteria thus reducing the risk of acne scarring. The dual source (dynamic pulse and smart light) will treat the acne in one third the time of most conventional therapy. By treating and preventing acne formation through this means, acne scarring is effectively eradicated.
