No one factor causes acne. Acne occurs when sebaceous (oil) glands attached to the hair follicles are stimulated at the time of puberty or due to other hormonal changes. Sebum (oil) is a natural substance that lubricates and protects the skin. It affects teens and adults and both men and women alike.
The key to effectively treating acne is finding the best solution for your unique skin type. At Ellemes Medical Spa, we are committed to finding an individualized treatment plan that is customized just for you.
Depending on the severity of the patient’s acne, we may recommend one or more of the following treatments:
- Chemical Peels:
Among the many chemical peels at Ellemes Medical Spa, some are particularly effective at treating acne. Specifically, Salicylic Acid peels are an excellent acne treatment, as it helps not only treat acne, but also helps clean out clogged pores and help maintain surface oils. Chemical peels are also helpful in reducing pore size and evening out the skin’s texture.
The microneedling treatment is a very popular acne treatment as it helps stimulate collagen and elastin production by creating microscopic pinpoint wounds on the surface of the skin. The increase in collagen production helps speed up the skin’s ability to cure itself naturally.
The HydraFacial procedure is a common treatment used to help acne as it helps unclog the pores and at the same time rehydrating the skin. This treatment is best performed on an ongoing basis as part of a regular preventative plan.
- Acne Facials
Regularly scheduled facials also help with acne. By getting periodic facials, we can ensure that the dirt and debris from the skin is effectively cleaned on a regular basis, effectively reducing the risk of acne formation. Blackhead extractions are generally customary with all acne facials as this process helps rid the skin of dirt buildup.
In addition to the above mentioned treatments, an analysis of your skincare routine is important as one of your at home skincare products may be the cause of reoccurring acne. At Ellemes Medical Spa, we offer FREE skin evaluations so that we may analyze your skin and make customized recommendations. Skincare products may also be recommended depending on the severity of the acne breakouts, such as creams, benzoyl peroxide, antibiotics, spot treatments, etc. We will only recommend medical grade acne treatment products that are proven to work through extensive medical testing and dermatologist recommended.
