What is Retention Hyperkeratosis?
Retention Hyperkeratosis is at the very core of acne and in order to affect the acne condition this process must be interrupted.
The outer most layer of our skin is called the “Stratum Corneum” which has tightly packed dead skin cells that also extend down in to the pore. Inside the pore this layer is only 4-5 cells deep. Studies have shown the “acne-affected” follicle is producing cells 4 to 5 times faster than the normal follicle. When these cells stick together they can form a mass (impaction) within the follicle. We have natural “enzymes” that control the thickness of the stratum corneum layer, research has shown that acne sufferers have fewer enzymes.
Clearing and controlling breakouts is possible with the right clinical acne home care and treatments with a trained acne specialist. Book your Acne Consultation today!
