Oily Skin

UPMC Content 3

Oily skin can be caused by genetics, hormonal changes from adolescence, pregnancy, birth control, or menopause, as well as by environmental factors such as cosmetics, diet and pollution. Typically, oily skin leads to acne break outs. While many treatments for acne concentrate on the bacterial symptoms, the CoolBreeze® laser actually targets and shrinks oil glands, which can decrease their ability to produce acne. ​
