Excessive Oilness

beautiful-woman-looking-away-from-camera

Excessive oiliness is caused by tiny sebaceous glands found beneath the surface of the skin in the dermal layers. They are a part of the hair shaft and they empty the sebum (oil) onto the surface of the skin through the hair shaft.

It the T-Zone, forehead, nose and chin area that is most concentrated with the sebaceous glands although they are found scattered all over the body with the exception of palm and soles.

Sebum is a complex blend of fats that combines with the dead cells and forms blackheads. The overproduction of sebum is due to the overstimulation of hormone Dihydrotestosterone. Although it first appears at the time of puberty and can affect both boys and girls it can happen in adults as well. The body undergoes a change at the time of pregnancy or menopause which may disturb the oil mantle.

It is a condition that is only cosmetic in nature although it could be a concern for causing shiny appearance and low self-esteem. Oily skin generally appears shiny, thick and coarse. The pores are generally enlarged and open. People with oily skin are more prone to acne and blemishes.

Although anyone may be affected by this condition genetics, diet, weather, certain medications like birth control, cosmetics may cause oily skin.

Some treatments for excessive oiliness are Microdermabrasion, Chemical peels and Blu-U treatment.

Anu has been taking care of me for several years, and I can only say great things about her. She is very professional, keeps detailed histories of her treatments, and offers wise advice about skincare. While other skin clinics crop up everywhere in this part of Mississauga, I doubt you could find a better or more personalized service anywhere in the city. I highly recommend this skin clinic!

I've been working with Anu to find solutions to significant adult acne. This has been a problem all of my life and at Laser Genesis I've found treatments that are truly making a difference. I have hope now that this isn't a problem I've going to have to live with all of my life. Anu understands the acne sufferer and really cares about making a difference in their lives. Thank you Anu!

After some very disappointing consultations at other laser clinics, I was blown away at how helpful and informative Anu is! She really takes the time to care for your skin, provide as much information as possible and ensures you feel comfortable before and after every session. Very pleased with my results from Laser Genesis for the IPL facial treatments!

I've been coming here for several months now. Service is impeccable and very friendly. IPL and fractional resurfacing have provided great results so far.
