Acne Scarring Management

Acne scars are usually the result of inflamed blemishes caused by skin pores engorged with excess oil, dead skin cells and bacteria. The pore swells, causing a break in the follicle wall. Shallow lesions are usually minor and heal quickly.
What is acne?
Acne is a devastating disease affecting teenagers and adults. 80% of teenagers have some form of acne and 20% develop severe scars that may permanently affect their lives. It is caused by a build up of dead skin cells and natural oil that stick together and block the pores. The acne bacteria feed off this mixture which then becomes inflamed. Acne comes in two basic types and varies in severity from individual to individual.

Since the blackhead is formed below the surface of the skin, it cannot be affected by surface cleansing products. Only products that are specifically designed to penetrate into the follicle and loosen the impactions will be successful in clearing up an acne condition.

With continued use of Danné Home Prescriptives and regular corrective in-salon treatment you can expect results in approximately two months.

Initially, you will be asked to complete a thorough questionnaire. We will then assess your skin condition and combine this knowledge with that from the questionnaire to design an individual corrective treatment program.

The treatment will include:

    • Removal of redundant cuticle build up and debris from the skin
    • Release and removal of impaction and infection
    • Acne healing and controlling additives
    • Enzyme treatment to improve skin functioning; to flush and expel toxins and rebuild stronger, healthier tissue.
    • Application of hydrating gel or lymph drainage

These treatments can be performed on the face or the body. Each treatment is very private and relaxing, and will bring you a step closer to having clear skin.
