Having issues with acne breakouts… here are some treatments and tips to help breakouts!
Acne breakouts can be very tricky and stubborn at times… acne occurs when pores become blocked with oil, acne bacteria, and dead skin cells. It is important to make sure to wash your face twice a day. I recommend to have a gentle exfoliant with either salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide to help with the acne breakouts but also a gentle cleanser to use over the sink when washing face. Cleansing twice a day will help with removing impurities, dead skin cells, and extra oil from skins surface. It is very important to moisturize your skin daily. Sometimes acne products that contain salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide can dry your skin. Always make sure to wash hands and don’t pick at the breakouts. Get a spot treatment product that contains salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide to spot treat the breakout.
Treatments that we offer at CAMI that are great for treating acne breakouts but also helping with acne scarring.
- Hydrafacials- This treatment is great for younger kids or adults suffering with acne breakouts. This hydra-microdermabrasion helps exfoliate the top dead layer of skin but at the same time is infusing all the nutrients back in the skin like- antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid. This is a deep cleansing treatment that uses a vortex technology to extract impurities at the same time. This treatment has no downtime.
- BBL Forever Clear- The BBL forever clear is a cutting edge acne treatment that uses the power of light to comfortably and effectively clear acne without creams or medication. BBL is the world’s most powerful IPL device delivering light energy deep into the skin to stimulate and regenerate new skin cells, leaving you with clear, healthy, radiant skin. This is recommended in a series of 6 treatments at 2 week intervals that uses a three step process with the laser.
- Blue Light Therapy- Blue light is a great combination treatment to add on to a hydrafacial for deep cleansing or a stand alone treatment. Blue light works great for oily/acne prone skin. The blue light helps by killing the acne- causing bacteria know as Propionibacterium acne which can cause inflammation. Using the blue light eliminates the bacteria found in the oil glands. This is a 15 minute treatment and normally done in a series for best results. Contact us for help with your acne breakouts.
