The Signs of Acne

The Signs of Acne

Signs of Acne - Blackheads
Blackheads

Acne blackheads, also known as open comedones, are small, dark spots on the skin formed by clogged hair follicles. They occur when excess oil and dead skin cells accumulate in the pores and oxidize upon exposure to air, giving them their characteristic black appearance.

Signs of Acne - Whiteheads
Whiteheads

Acne whiteheads, or closed comedones, are small, white or flesh-coloured bumps on the skin. They form when oil and dead skin cells accumulate within the pores, leading to a closed-off, raised appearance. They have a closed surface, preventing oxidation of the trapped debris, maintaining their white or flesh tone.

Signs of Acne - Pustules and Cysts
Pulstules & Cysts

Cysts are larger, pus-filled lumps beneath the skin surface, characterized by their deep, painful nature. These nodules result from a more severe form of acne, often forming when pustules or other lesions rupture deep within the skin, causing inflammation and infection to spread.

Such an amazing package! Booked the groupon deal which was a great price at around $90. The amount that was included in it was just unreal! Amazing massage, facial, back scrub, eyebrow tint and wax and some refreshments at the end. I was super nervous about having my eyebrows done by somebody else as I usually just do them myself but the lady taking care of me for them spot on! The clinic owner was so warm and friendly and has some amazing self created skin and makeup products. A great day 💗

I bought the 2 hour special on Groupon for myself and my mother. We both really enjoyed the session. The staff were very friendly and the room was clean and inviting. My only suggestion is when other staff members come in to watch/learn, it's good practice to ask for the customers consent prior. I was quite surprised to see another person watching, when I turned onto my back. As I hadn't heard someone come in or was asked if I was okay with someone watching.

I've been going to this salon for the past 3 years and I can honestly say that my skin is the best it's ever been. The packages are reasonably priced, there is no other salon that can give the same value. I recommend to experience their service personally so you can judge for yourself.
