Eighty-five percent of pimple sufferers are between the ages of 12 and 24, and 25% will end up with permanent scars ranging from light to severe, which can result in low self-esteem.
There are four main types of pimple breakouts, all of which are caused when oil builds up and dead skin clogs the pore openings. There are different ways to treat each type of breakout:
These are not infected or inflamed with bacteria and do not cause scarring. Visit a skincare specialist for a complete facial cleanse to get rid of blackheads.
Whiteheads contain limited bacterial growth, white pus and mild inflammation. We recommend the use of MAPP10, which is a 10-day treatment to help clear up whiteheads. This should be followed by MAPP30 – a 30-day treatment with capsules to maintain clear and healthy skin.
These red bumps are inflamed with a white or yellow centre and can cause scarring. Treat them with MAPP10, followed by the MAPP30 treatment, to get rid of any scars the pustules may cause.
These are pus-filled lesions with deep inflammation and bacterial infection, and are swollen and sore. After a cyst heals, a permanent scar may remain. This can also be treated with MAPP10, followed by MAPP30. If scarring does occur, we recommend you see a skincare specialist.
