What are the common types of acne and how can the ProSonic Glow help fight it?

June 16, 2014


It may surprise you to learn that there are several different types of acne. Typically classified as mild, moderate or severe, acne is also classified as either non-inflammatory or inflammatory. Whatever type of acne you have, it can cause a loss of confidence and feelings of shame and unattractiveness. Luckily, acne of all types can be treated with a ProSonic Glow device, getting rid not only of the acne but also the negative feelings that it creates.

Acne is mostly common in teenagers, but it can affect adults as well. It is caused by excessive sebum–oil produced by the skin–getting trapped in pores by dead skin cells. The oil then gets backed up in the skin, causing whiteheads and blackheads. When the whitehead or blackhead gets inflamed, it creates acne. Most often acne occurs on the face, but it can also occur on the chest, shoulders and back.

Take a look at the different types of acne and how a ProSonic Glow can help fight it:

Inflammatory versus Non-Inflammatory Acne:

Non-inflammatory acne is less severe than inflammatory and is commonly referred to in more causal terms as a pimple or zit.

Mild, Moderate and Severe acne:

Mild: Mild acne is categorized by the appearance of whiteheads and blackheads, known as comedones. These are clogged pores. Contrary to common belief, blackheads are not actually dirt trapped in the skin. Rather, blackheads are open pores that allow skin pigment, melanin, in the pore to mingle with oxygen in the air. Whiteheads are closed pores with a white or yellowish head. As more and more oil builds up, it is more likely to cause inflammatory acne. Acne is also categorized as mild if there are only a few pimples present or if they are small.

Moderate: Moderate acne is categorized with an increased number of pimples. These pimples may be inflamed and called “papules” (small bumps) or “pustules” (filled with yellow pus).

Severe: Those that suffer from severe acne often have papules and pustules as well as reddish, painful nodules that can cause skin damage and scarring.

Treatment options:

There are many different ways to treat acne, from specialized soaps and cleansers to topical treatments, prescription medications and physical treatments. While some people find these solutions beneficial, many of them can cause further problems. Soaps can be too harsh and cause irritation to the skin. Topical treatments can be costly and may not work. Prescription medications can have bad side effects and using antibiotics can become ineffective if the bacteria become resistant to the medication.

Other treatment options, like professional facial treatments and extractions can be expensive and time consuming, as can laser treatments, IPL therapy and phototherapy. These procedures can be effective, but are often too expensive to maintain.

The ProSonic Glow:

The ProSonic Glow is the same type of skincare system used by professional skincare specialists. The sonic and pulsation technology is six times more effective at getting a deep down clean than soap and water and is suitable for use on both face and body, so it can treat acne wherever it occurs.

The deep down cleaning power of the ProSonic Glow gets deep into pores to remove known pore clogging materials like dirt and makeup. By cleansing and exfoliating at the same time, you not only save time, but also get a more effective cleaning power improving skin texture. The ProSonic Glow also reduces the appearance of large pores and the presence of acne as well.

The ProSonic Glow features four different brush heads and three speeds to get you acne free, or close to it, from head to toe. The facial brush head evens out dry skin and oily patches and prevents acne breakouts as well as reduce pore size. The body brush can be used to help treat and prevent acne on the chest, shoulders and back.

Best of all, the device is simple to use and portable. You don’t have to make and keep appointments at the doctor’s office or go without treatment when you are out of town. The portable device can go with you to treat and prevent acne at your convenience.
