Acne is ugly, awful, and unwanted. And sometimes, no matter how hard we try to get rid of the skin disease, it just will not go. This begs the question, is there an acne treatment that actually gets rid of it?
What is Acne?
Acne is a common inflammatory skin disease that affects millions of people of all ages and genders. The condition causes whiteheads, blackheads, pimples, cysts, or nodules. It can appear on all parts of the body – shoulders, arms, neck, back, chest – but its primary playground is the face.
Although the disease is most common among teenagers, it can affect anyone. The persistence of the condition depends on its severity. In some cases, it can even leave damage the skin too much that scars leave in their wake.
There are many causes. Genetics, puberty, pregnancy, stress, menstruation, hormones, beauty products, and medications may trigger or worsen acne. But at its core, three elements produce acne.
These three elements are:
- Excessive sebum (oil produced by the skin) production
- Dead skin cells
When dead skin cells and sebum clog the pores of hair follicles, bacteria settles in and causes inflammation. The follicle bulges, forming a spot on the skin called a whitehead.
If oil and bacteria clog the pore, the bulge will look like dirt is stuck in the pore. The bacteria and oil have a dark look – this is a blackhead.
But if the blocked follicle becomes inflamed with bacteria, it produces a red bulge with a white center at the top. This is a pimple. If the inflammation spreads underneath the skin, the condition develops cysts and nodules.
Creating the Perfect Treatment Plan
Treating it is unlike softening fine lines and wrinkles. Since skin types vary from person to person, there is no one treatment that works for everyone. However, I developed a system that can accommodate everyone’s skin type.
The vital key in effective acne treatment is finding the proper procedures and products for specific skin types. I always customize a treatment plan for my clients that fit their particular needs.
VISIA Skin Analysis
The first step in my system is to analyze your skin using an in-depth analysis tool that accurately determines your skin type, pore structure, pigmentation, and porphyrins. The VISIA skin analysis tool detects the organisms that caused your acne breakout.
Though there are other ways to analyze skin and produce accurate results, VISIA skin analysis can determine how your skin will age according to the treatment plan it receives.
Blood work is necessary to ensure that there are no underlying causes of the acne breakout. Blood work can rule out hormonal or nutritional imbalances. I find this step necessary – a treatment plan may come to nothing if the root cause of the problem is in the body’s more complicated systems.
Most aestheticians don’t find blood work necessary when treating acne. But in my case, I want to be sure that there are no underlying infections.
Acne Treatments Guarantee to Work
VI peel cleans the top-most layer of the skin, the epidermis. And since the physical manifestations of acne – pimples, whiteheads, or blackheads – are caused by the clogging of dead skin cells and sebum on the pores, a VI peel is beneficial to people with acne. VI peel employs a specific solution mainly designed to tackle acne-prone skin.
VI peel is exceptionally gentle. It is applicable on the face, neck, chest, or anywhere else acne erupts. Additionally, the VI peel is suitable for all skin types.
Special IPL Treatment
Intense pulsed light (IPL) is a common procedure for treating various skin conditions. The technology uses light in several wavelengths to attack cells in the skin. IPL gives off an energy that targets red and brown pigments in the skin.
IPL is very similar to laser, except that laser uses highly concentrated light while IPL uses diffused light. IPL is gentler on the skin.
Common IPL treatments are not suitable against an active case; they only combat the discoloration caused by acne. But the special IPL treatment I use, the specific wavelengths of light target acne-causing bacteria in the skin. The lights destroy the bacteria, preventing further breakouts.
Celluma Light Therapy
Celluma is a unique light therapy device that can treat different health conditions – some even deeper than the skin. Unlike other light energy devices in the market, Celluma is flexible and can target cells on a microscopic level.
By closely conforming to the treatment area, the skin cells can absorb more light energy. Celluma light therapy can give quick results in acne elimination and skin healing.
Like my special IPL acne treatment, Celluma’s light energy targets the bacteria that cause an acne breakout. Plus, it actively reduces the inflammation caused by said bacteria.
These three treatments vary in intensity. VI peel cleanses the surface of the skin. It only goes to the epidermis.
The special IPL treatment attacks the bacteria that cause acne on a more cellular level. It is more targeted and specific than VI peel.
Celluma light therapy works well even in the most severe cases. This technology destroys acne-causing bacteria on the microscopic level. Plus, it reduces the inflammation caused by bacteria clogged in pores.
These three treatments actually get rid of acne at various levels. VI peel is the gentlest treatment; Celluma light therapy is the harshest against it. With my knowledgeable help, you can get the proper treatment that works with your skin type and severity of acne.
