Oily skin, red bumps, inflammation, and embarrassing pimples are more common than you think. The first step towards treating and preventing blackheads, acne, and clogged pores is understanding the causes and symptoms. Our team at New Age Spa in Montreal and Laval is here to help!
What is Acne?
Acne is a common skin condition that is typically thought of as a teenage affliction. The truth is that acne affects patients of all ages. It appears as Whiteheads, Blackheads, or Pimples. Symptoms of acne often feel like something we have to hide, but the skin condition affects 5.6 million Canadians – which is nearly 20% of the population! Signs of acne are treatable with the right knowledge and dermatological skincare.
The visible symptoms of acne vary depending on the severity and skin condition. Most patients see symptoms of acne inflammation appear on the forehead, chin, cheeks, chest, shoulders, and upper back. However, blackheads and pimples can appear anywhere on the body.
- Whiteheads – closed pores clogged with oil and other toxins
- Blackheads – open pores clogged with toxins
- Papules – small, red bumps that are tender to the touch
- Pustules / Pimples – pus-filled bumps
- Nodules – large painful lumps under the skin hard to the touch
- Cystic Lesions – large pus-filled lumps under the skin
The cause of acne flare-ups that lead to breakouts varies from person to person. Excess oils produced in the skin can be triggered by:
- Heredity or Genes
- Environmental Factors
- Facial Peel
- Deep Cleansing Facial
- Blackhead Removal Facial

Acne and Mental Health
Other common and less-discussed symptoms of acne are emotional distress and low self-esteem. If acne is putting a strain on your mental health, we hear you! Let the team at New Age Spa help you rediscover the confidence that comes from beautiful, healthy skin that glows.
What is the cause of Acne?
Acne usually occurs when the hair follicles are plugged or clogged with oil, dead skin, and debris. Pores are often clogged with an accumulation of sebum, an oily substance produced by oil glands. Visible redness or swelling in the skin is sometimes a sign of a bacteria known as Cutibacterium-Acnes in the pores. Other factors such as overwashing, expired cosmetics, sweating, medications, and diet can lead to acne symptoms!
