Overview

When it comes to oily skin, it’s all about genetics. But, when it comes to controlling excess oiliness and maintaining a matte finish, it’s all about a daily regimen with the right products for your skin.

Overactive sebaceous glands are the culprit of oily skin. This condition isn’t just for teens: oiliness can be triggered by genetics and hormone fluctuations, making even adults susceptible to excess oiliness and shine.


How It Works

what causes oily skin?

Sebum (oil) production is controlled by androgen hormones. Oils help lubricate skin, protecting it from environmental assaults (such as extreme weather conditions). Excess androgen hormones (due to puberty, monthly cycles or menopause) can trigger sebaceous (oil) glands to produce too much oil. This excess oil spills onto the skin’s surface, creating a slick, greasy appearance.

This excess oil acts as a binder, holding on to dead skin cells meant to be shed.

What role does oily skin play in the development of breakouts?
While those with oily skin don’t necessarily experience breakouts, oily skin is one of the triggers behind the development of acne.
Because excess oils act as a binder, skin cells are not properly shed. The follicle becomes clogged with a mixture of oil and dead skin cells, prohibiting oxygen from entering. This creates the perfect breeding ground for bacteria, which leads to swelling, redness and inflammation around the follicle, resulting in acne.

The oily skin myth…
Many believe stripping skin with harsh, drying ingredients (such as alcohol) can control excess oils. Ironically, this can cause skin to produce even more oil than before, as the sebaceous glands go into overdrive in order to replace what has been lost! For those who self-treat with these products, skin is often left dehydrated, irritated and sensitized.

A balanced skin care regimen that consists of oil-control and proper hydration will bring skin into balance.

Just had the best Microdermabrasion ever at this Spa. Lucie is very friendly, knowledgeable and she gave me tons of pointers on how to look my best. On top of that I got an awesome free massage on top of the microdermabrasion for free to from the promotion. Great service, great staff, great price.

I tried all home remedies, then went to the dermatologist for my pigmentation, and none of them worked. I went to Lucie's for consultation, and she was very helpful. She explains everything thoroughly. I have uneven skin tone which has been my problem for so long, until I had a few dermabrasions. The result was amazing, my skin looks so smooth, what a big difference! I have made the right decisions to come to Lucie's Medispa.
