There are some things you might miss about your teenage years – like being able to stay up late and sleep until noon. But acne is likely not on the list of things you miss.
On the other hand, you may suffer from adult acne.
What Causes Acne?
Eating healthy can prevent acne breakouts and ensure your skins stays healthy, but there are other things that influence your likelihood of developing acne.
Acne occurs when the hair follicles in the skin get congested with dead skin cells and excess oils. As a result, hair follicles start to bulge outward through the surface of the skin. Sometimes, these follicles can get infected with bacteria, resulting in redness and inflammation.
Factors that can cause breakouts include:
- Hormone changes
- Certain medications
If you’re tired of acne breakouts, it’s time to consider a medical grade facial.
Medical Grade Facials for Acne
Medical grade facials combine a number of procedures to clean and moisturize your skin. These facials follow the same type of steps as a classic facial, such as cleansing, exfoliation, and hydration. The main difference is that medical grade facials are performed using medical grade tools and products for more effective results.
Medical grade facials are completely customizable. That means they can be tailored to target acne-prone skin and scars. Additional treatment add-ons like derma planning can also be used to exfoliate the surface layer of your skin and then enhance the absorption of chemical peels.
Since medical facials are performed in a physician’s office, we’re able to affect your skin at a deeper level. For instance, a low concentration chemical peel is used during a classic facial, whereas we can use a high concentration peel to truly target clogged pores and the build-up of dead skin cells, leaving you with clear, acne-free skin.
Say Goodbye to Acne
When you think of a facial, you may think of a relaxing spa day. It’s an effective way to combat non-severe acne. But by far the most effective acne treatment is a medical grade facial. Our medical aestheticians use high-quality products that aren’t available to everyday spas.
Each facial is customized to your skin’s needs and can include additional treatments like lighting therapy and derma planning to kill acne bacteria and leave you looking and feeling healthy and fresh.
