At Amara we can effectively address acne breakout of all forms
There are machine led treatments which will help bring acne under control. This section is dedicated solely to what the ZO Skin Health Range has to offer when it comes to treating annoying and unsightly breakouts.
What is Acne?
Acne is an inflammation based skin condition that affects roughly 85% of people at some point in their lives.
Genetics, hormone balance, lifestyle and diet contribute to acne ‘breakouts’. These are underlying influencers but ALL acne breakouts are the result of physical pore blockage.
Pores can be blocked by sebum (oil production) or by cellular debris from the skin renewal cycle.
Either congestion allows bacteria and sebum to build up in the pores, causing unsightly whiteheads, blackhead, pimples or cysts.
