Say Goodbye to Acne! Top 5 Procedures That Can Help AT DERMACARE MEDICAL AESTHETICS

Acne is a condition that affects millions of women and men every year and about 85% of people aged between 12 and 24 have experienced one episode of acne. The problem is that while some individuals have minor breakouts, others live from one breakout to another—one blemish clears and another one pops right next to it.

Luckily, technology and dermatology have improved greatly over the years, and you no longer have to deal with and accept your acne and its scars. You can also say goodbye to overly expensive creams that don’t always work or make your condition worse because, in this blog, you will discover the best procedures Dermacare Medical Aesthetics offers to reduce acne.

Why Does Acne Happen?

Acne happens when sebum and dead skin cells clog your hair follicles. While sebum is necessary to keep your skin moisturized, excessive amounts can form a plug. Bacteria begin to form there, triggering an infection and leading to unwanted pimples on the skin.

To prevent acne from appearing, you need to keep your sebum at a minimum and have a strict skincare routine. If you cannot make your skin listen to you, at least you can help it along the way and find the right treatment for it.

Best Dermacare Laser & Skin Care Treatments for Acne

Based on the cause and severity of your acne, there are several treatments that we can recommend. Here are some of the most popular ones:

1. Blue Light Therapy

Blue Light Therapy for acne is a great method for you to get rid of acne vulgaris, commonly known as cystic acne. Using a narrow band blue light, it enters your sebaceous gland, killing the P. acnes bacteria that are responsible for acne vulgaris. It can also create a toxic environment for the bacteria to form, preventing future breakouts.

But how effective is blue light therapy for acne, you may ask? Well, it depends on how well you adhere to the treatment. It is recommended that you go for one Blue Light therapy session per week over the course of five weeks. Your doctor may also recommend topical products to help control your acne.

2. Red Light Therapy

Very often, people dealing with acne will also have an inconvenient side effect: acne scars. Unlike actual acne, the scars will remain there for a longer time, sometimes permanently. Acne scars are lesions that were not properly healed after a breakout, leaving a discoloration or bump behind. 

One way to make them go away is to trigger the healing process once more and this is possible with red light therapy. With its ability to heat up to 107 degrees, it gently stimulates collagen production and blood circulation, sending your skin into healing mode. This will improve your skin complexion and reduce acne scars with no damage.

3. DiamondGlow®

DiamondGlow® is a procedure that can help you unlock your skin’s potential for looking perfect. Using diamond-tipped exfoliation mixed with SkinMedica® serums, DiamondGlow® cleanses your pores of dead skin and debris before deeply nourishing it. 

Through its exfoliation process, DiamondGlow® helps not only with acne but also with acne scars. The exfoliation can also trigger collagen production, which can keep acne away while improving your skin complexion.

4. Deep Pore Treatment

A deep pore cleansing facial is great not only for reducing acne but also for preventing future breakouts. These facials are recommended once a month and can address specific issues such as irritated, clogged, or inflamed pores.

Our deep pore treatments may be customized to fit your needs and with a proper home skincare routine recommended by our medical providers, you can keep acne away for good.

5. Chemical Peels

Very often, the best way to get rid of acne and its scars is to remove the upper layer of the skin, and this can be done with a chemical peel. This procedure uses a chemical solution that can remove the damaged outer later, including your acne and scar tissue. 

As a bonus, chemical peels can reduce all types of pigmentation and imperfections in your skin. So, aside from acne, you may also eliminate melasma, age spots, freckles, and hyperpigmentation.
