So what exactly, is the cause of acne blemishes?

For this answer we must look to the skin itself.

As you may already know, our skin contains tiny microscopic holes called pores, the largest of which are on our face, back, chest and shoulders. These pores are our skin's opening to the outside world and allow our body to "breathe" if you will, releasing impurities and toxins.

One of the structures located deep within each pore is an oil-producing gland known as the sebaceous gland, which lubricates the skin keeping it soft and moist. Under normal circumstances, sebum, the oily substance made by this skin gland, travels up and out to the skin's surface. This oil production and subsequent release is part of a normal cycle occurring regularly throughout the day.

The problem arises when certain genetic factors, such as increased hormone production for example (as occurs during puberty), causes this oil-producing process to go into overdrive, leading to an over-production of oil! Since the body can't keep up with this excessive oil production, it tends to accumulate and combine with dead skin cells located on the skin's surface to clog the pores.

Since the bacteria that are normally located on the surface of our skin feed on skin oil, the clogged pore with its trapped oil now becomes a feasting ground for them! As they eat the oils, they multiply and move deeper into the pores, becoming lodged underneath the skin's surface. This summons your immune system to attack and fight back!

When a blocked pore becomes infected with bacteria, this battle beneath the surface of the skin leads to what is called a pimple.

If a pore that is clogged with oil, dead skin and bacteria is closed off by the body's immune response, and then proceeds to bulge out, you have what is known as a whitehead .

If a clogged pore stays open, the top portion may darken when it is exposed to the air, leaving you with a blackhead .

In some cases, the sebaceous or oil-producing gland itself can become infected, forming what is known as a cyst deep beneath the skin's surface. These acne cysts can rupture, spreading the infection into nearby skin tissue and often lead to those disfiguring acne scars .

So as you can see...

Without Overproduction of Oil, None of the Sub-Causes, Such As Bacteria, Can Become Active Thus Making Acne Formation Impossible!

Therefore, it is the over-activity of the oil glands or excessive oil production, if you will, that is the true source or cause of acne ! From here it's simply a chain reaction of acne forming events!

And the sad truth is, the problem will not go away with those topical skin cleansing systems and herbal concoctions you see on the Internet…The only FDA approved drugless method for treating acne at the source , which are the oil producing glands themselves, is Laser Acne Therapy!

The Truth Behind Why Typical Acne Treatments Just Don't Work and the Lies Their Manufacturers Want You To Believe!

Before we explain all the details on Laser Acne Therapy, it's important to objectively explain why some of the standard acne treatments we spend billions of dollars on every year (1.4 billion in the United States alone to be exact) yield less than satisfactory results when it comes to acne correction, and are often associated with some bothersome, even dangerous side effects.

You see, those ads and infomercials with the fancy graphics and famous actors explaining how bacteria and oil on your skin cause acne, implying if you were to just clean your skin of those germs and oil, your acne would miraculously be cured are dead wrong !

Actually, as many of you have no doubt already experienced, these cleansers and creams aren't all they are cracked up to be and usually don't do the job. This is because they are limited to only treating the surface bacteria/oil and some of the acne sub-causes at best. However, they do not , nor can they, treat the root cause, which is over active-oil glands!

Antibiotics and some of the other prescription medications available today will not address this issue of excessive oil production by the oil glands (and the one that does has such dangerous side effects such as liver damage and birth defects if used while pregnant. Who wants to take the chance!).

There were several options traditionally available to clear and control acne. The two main categories are professional in-office treatments and over the counter home care products:

Once Again, Acne is Not Caused By Surface Bacteria, Dirt or Oil. The 'Pore Clogging' Takes Place Below the Surface of the Skin!

So while these products do a decent job at killing surface bacteria and removing some of the excess skin oils, they are unsuccessful at producing long-term results because they cannot address the cause of the acne which is actually located below the skin surface...the over-production of oil by the oil-producing glands themselves!

Furthermore, once the oils and bacteria get blocked in the pores themselves, producing a micro-infection under the skin known as acne, they are out of reach of surface treatments, thus rendering these products useless!

As You Can See, Wiping Away Bacteria and Oil Will Not Correct Your Acne Problem Like These Companies Would Like You To Believe. In Fact, It Could Even Make the Problem Worse!

You see each time you use these products, the oil and bacteria is removed from the surface of the skin; however, about an hour or so later more oil returns, causing you to use more product to get rid of the new surface oil.
Over time, the excessive stripping away of the oil leads to painful, dry,

crackly skin. As a defense mechanism, your skin then releases even more oil to re-lubricate the skin. As oil production increases, the pores once again become clogged and the bacteria are free to go back to work! Over time, this vicious cycle can actually cause your acne to get worse!

Therefore, unless You Can Stop the Excess Oil Production at the Source, You're Not Going To Stop the Bacteria Nor Are You Going To Stop Acne & Acne Scar Formation!
