Acne can be a serious problem, making you feel unattractive and imperfect. It can effect not just the face, but parts of the body like your chest, back and arms.
Depending on your skin type, it can be difficult to get this problem under control along with the oily skin, pimples, and blackheads that go along with acne. Everyone’s skin is different so not every product will work for each skin type and acne issue. If you’ve gone through the usual remedies with no success, it’s time to bring out the big guns.
WIFH offers three treatments that can turn any acne issue into a thing of the past.
Chemical peels are designed to reduce acne, acne scarring, pigmentation, and pore size. They improve your skin’s texture by placing chemicals on affected areas. These chemicals exfoliate and destroy skin cells in a controlled way. When skin cells are destroyed, new cells take their place, causing a rejuvenated look and a reduction in the appearance of acne-related problems.
Chemical peels come in three strengths depending on your needs, and work for every skin condition and color. The process also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, to help create firmer, smoother skin. The deeper peels will cause the skin to flake and peel off, but there are superficial peels that are also very effective that have no peeling or flaking. There are plenty of options when it comes to peels and they are very effective at controlling acne and correcting its damage.
This procedure helps resurface the skin by manually removing the top layer, making it an effective treatment for revitalizing dull skin, reducing pore size, and getting rid of acne. The version that WIFH uses, DermaSweep MD, uses coarse bristles to precisely and effectively remove the skin cells and stimulate blood flow as well as collagen formation.
Microdermabrasion done this way stimulates blood flow, cleans pores, and removes dirt and debris that can assist in the formation of acne. It’ll also firm and tone your skin for a smoother, brighter glow. Once the surface has been exfoliated an infusion solution is selected for your particular skin concern and it is infused and pressed into the skin. Routine microderms are perfect for controlling acne and basic skin rejuvenation and anti-aging.
Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Laser skin resurfacing can help improve your skin tone and reduce the appearance of acne scarring. Basically, lasers direct short, concentrated beams of light at your skin. This removes the molecular bonds between skin cells, layer by layer, destroying damaged skin cells. Your doctor may recommend a non-ablative treatment, in which laser energy is absorbed deeply but the surface skin is left intact.
This activates your body’s naturally healing response, encouraging the growth of collagen and helping to improve your skin tone and reduce pore size. There is no downtime with this type of laser skin resurfacing and it’s safe for all skin types.
Alternatively, your doctor may suggest micro-fractional CO2, a treatment that makes micro-cuts in the skin, wounding about half the skin surface. The micro-cuts cause the body to overproduce collagen and elastin, the building blocks to skin tissue, to heal itself. There is some downtime associated with this kind of resurfacing. You would want to plan this procedure when you have 3-5 days to go without make-up. Micro-fractional procedures are typically only safe for lighter skin types.
If you’ve been suffering from acne, drugstore solutions may not be enough to restore your morale – or your skin. These WIFH services cost more than topical creams and lotions, but are the most effective. They can be done quickly and can provide better solutions for you and your problem skin.
If you want to know if you’re a candidate for these procedures, consult your doctor or skin care professional. As with any and all professional procedures of this type, there are limitations, side effects, and proper ways to prepare and recover.
