Retentional acne manifests itself as blackheads or white spots but without inflammation, redness or pain. This is the mildest form of acne. White spots are the result of an overproduction of sebum, a set of lipids produced by the sebaceous glands, and stimulation of keratinocytes (skin cells). These two factors cause a blockage within the pores of the skin, and this results on the surface in a pimple.

To correct and prevent retentional acne, it is necessary to act on the symptoms but also on the various causes which cause in particular an overproduction of sebum: hormonal changes, a diet too sweet or rich in dairy proteins, stress, unsuitable cosmetics ( irritants or comedogenic).

Trio-Zinc treatments have been specifically formulated by our Doctors to combat the causes of retentional acne and relieve symptoms, for rapid and long-lasting results.
