What is Acne?
Acne (acne vulgaris) is a skin disease evidenced by clogged pores (blackheads and whiteheads),pimples, and larger cysts or nodules occurring mainly on the face, neck, chest, back, shoulders and upper arm area.
Many factors, including genetics, stress, hormones, environment, heavy and/or oily makeup, and diet, all play roles.
Acne is caused by dysfunction of the hair follicle and its accompanying sebaceous gland. The sebaceous gland produces sebum (the skins natural moisturizer), Acne begins to develop when keratin (found in hair, nails and the outermost layer of skin) over-accumulates and blocks the hair follicle (hyperkeratinization) obstructing the flow of sebum.
iS CLINICAL® products for acne are formulated with pharmaceutical-grade botanical ingredients that work synergistically and safely to clear the complexion. The Acne regime includes products that encourage exfoliation while addressing inflammation and infection.

What Our Clients Say
I visited MEDfacials in Truro after a recommendation, being well past my youth, I’m always worried about having anything done to my face. Dr Stolte was very professional and caring, not rushing to get you in and out. He listened to what I was concerned about and made suggestions. I came away feeling younger & looking younger and fabulous. I would recommend MEDfacials, Truro 100%
