Acne Treatments Q & A

What is acne?

Ance is a very common inflammatory skin condition. It develops when your pores become clogged with a mix of hardened sebum (oil), dead skin cells, and other debris. This allows the bacteria that is always present to begin to multiply rapidly. 

When bacteria multiply, it creates red, swollen areas. This is an acne breakout, and it can take several different forms. Blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, and pustules can occur on your face or body. 

Researchers find links between hormonal fluctuations and acne, which explains why teens and young adults experience acne at higher rates. Certain medications or a genetic predisposition for acne can also cause breakouts.  

What are some acne treatment options?

Numerous medical aesthetic treatments can help control acne and improve the appearance of acne scarring. 

With a consulation with your licesed esthatician we can get you started on medical grade, quality products to achieve your goals of clearer skin.

Chemical peels can also treat acne by removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells, reducing the chance of clogged pores. A strong yet safe chemical solution creates a layer of fresh, healthy cells. 

Acne facials are another approach and use hands-on techniques to effectively clean and exfoliate your skin without triggering new breakouts or inflammation. The products used during acne facials strive to cleanse, hydrate, and treat the skin without clogging pores or damaging skin. 

If acne breakouts create darkened skin, intense pulsed light (IPL) laser therapy can help. Concentrated beams of light create heat that prompts your body to renew tissue growth, clearing up areas of hyperpigmentation and balancing skin tone. 

Medication might play a role in treating your acne, especially for severe acne or painful, cyst-like breakouts.

How long does it take to see results from acne treatments?

It’s important to be patient as you move through acne treatment. It takes time for your body to adjust to medications or react to medical aesthetic treatments. 

While you might see some immediate initial improvements, it usually takes several months to see the full effects of acne treatments. Your practitioner assesses your skin and adjusts your treatment plan as needed.
