Men and women no longer have to suffer the embarrassing results of adult acne. Dr. Simon Ourian has developed the Coolaser, a system he believes offers a real answer to adult acne.
Beverly Hills, California ─ Dr. Simon Ourian, Medical Director of Epione Beverly Hills, has developed the Coolaser, maybe the treatment help for adult acne and available exclusively at Epione.
Teenagers are not the only ones who suffer from acne. Acne vulgaris, or acne, affects over 16 million adults. Dr. Simon Ourian, of Epione Beverly Hills, explains what acne is: “People who’ve never had acne may not know that it’s one of the most common skin diseases. Generally, it develops in the teens but can continue for some into their 20’s and beyond. Acne results from the overproduction of oil by the sebaceous glands that then mix with dead skin cells to clog the pores of the skin. These clogs are a breeding ground for bacteria which in turn may lead to neighboring tissue causing redness, swelling and bumps or pimples.”
In fact, 25 percent of adult men and 50 percent of adult women will suffer from acne. Where can acne appear? It can be seen on the face, back, chest, and other areas. Therefore, not only will acne affect the face, one third of adults will also have it on other areas of their bodies.
What are some of the causes of adult acne? Stress, hormones, medications, birth control pills, harsh facial cleansers, makeup, a poor diet, even sweat from the gym have all been cited as sources of adult acne. However, Dr. Ourian warns, “Acne misconceptions abound. Diet, sweat and stress are often inaccurately blamed as causes of acne.”
Although people expect to see acne in teens, when adults have to deal with the condition it can be emotionally and psychologically damaging. A lifetime of acne can lead to low self esteem and self worth.
Consider these scenarios: a man faces his colleagues in a meeting room. He wonders if they are focusing on his presentation or if they are staring at his acne. It affects his delivery and confidence. A woman avoids the mirror as much as possible, too ashamed to look at the acne on her face. She worries about the photo she is scheduled to take for her company and the fact that it will eventually appear online. Will she be considered the ugliest female employee on the company’s website? She knows no amount of makeup can truly hide the acne underneath.
Dr. Simon Ourian, the Medical Director of Epione Beverly Hills, understands adult acne and the effects it can produce. He designs individualized treatment plans that deliver real and lasting results. Those plans can include Coolaser, a product developed by Dr. Ourian and available only at Epione. As Dr. Ourian explains, “With the Coolaser, I can literally sand down the surface of the skin so that the acne scars are less deep. I’ve worked hard over the years to develop the technology and technique that allows me the control necessary to remove only as much as needed, maintaining as much of the healthy skin as possible.”
