Acne Treatment

Acne is a condition in which the skin becomes inflamed due to the blockage of the hair follicles with oil, bacteria, and dead skin cells. The areas of the body most prone to acne are the face, neck, back, and shoulders. Acne cannot be cured; it can only be controlled with treatment.

Facial peels vary according to their specific ingredients and their strength. The peeling action depends on the duration the solution remained on the skin, and the depth of application.
