Acne breakouts can be a normal part of growing up, starting from the ages of ten to thirteen and ending by the time we’re in our mid-twenties. These acne breakouts can grow to be severe for many young people, and they don’t respond very much to over-the-counter treatments applied to them. Acne that vanishes in the early twenties can suddenly become a problem again, much to our dismay. When this happens, the acne is usually more deeply embedded, leaving noticeable scarring when the blemishes dry up. If either of these scenarios sounds familiar, you should consider visiting us for your acne treatment.
Our Treatments for Acne
If you have tried to treat your acne breakouts yourself, you have probably purchased one of the over-the-counter medications available. Most of these contain an active ingredient called benzoyl peroxide. Benzoyl peroxide is a topical antiseptic that inhibits the growth of the type of bacteria that causes acne. It also causes the thinnest topmost layer of skin to dry up and peel slightly, helping to reveal fresh, new skin underneath. These kinds of treatments can be suitable for a mild to moderate breakout. More problematic breakouts will need prescription strength medications, and probably more.
Prescription Medications for Acne
There are certain oral medications that can be prescribed that work well for many clients. These can vary, but they can be certain antibiotics that are better suited to dealing with the kind of bacteria that causes acne.
Light Therapies for Acne
You would be amazed how different wavelengths of light can be harnessed for the improvement of acne. Light within the blue wavelength range has a destructive effect on the bacteria that cause acne. We can direct these wavelengths of light into the deeper layers of the skin, clear acne and improve your complexion.
