Acne affects millions of people. It is the most common skin condition in the United States, but that doesn’t mean that those affected don’t mind walking around with blemishes on their face. Acne can be uncomfortable and embarrassing, can kill a person’s self-esteem, and can make looking in the mirror hard. We get it. While it may be common, that doesn’t make it something you should just deal with.
While acne is very common, it seems that information on treatments is not. If you suffer from acne, you have likely tried every remedy in the book — from at home remedies to over the counter products to more extreme treatment options, all claiming to be the best. But it is likely you have not seen the results you want.
Treating acne shouldn’t be difficult. However, it is hard to find the right treatment options for you. Everyone has different skin types, this means that the treatments may work for some and not as well for others.
There are many different causes of acne, meaning that anyone can suffer from acne at some point in their lives. An article from MedicineNet.com mentions some of the main contributing factors to acne. They include:
- Medications and prescriptions
There are some other factors (which are the factors that you are often told cause your acne) do not play a direct role. While some of these may worsen acne, they are not the main cause of acne. These include food, dirt, and stress.
But of course, you probably don’t care about the causes of acne, you likely care more about treatment options and how you can rid your face of acne. Our dermatology experts at Azeal Dermatology Institute in Boulder can help! We know the best skin care treatments, acne treatments, and how to care for different skin types. We want to help you learn how to care for your acne and feel confident and comfortable in your skin again.
In this blog, we are going to give you some of the best acne treatments that will help you treat your acne. In a previous blog, we talked about some natural remedies that could help your acne, but if you are looking for something stronger and more effective, read on. We are going to talk about dermatology treatments that can help!
Azeal CryoFacial, aka cryotherapy, has been shown to help with acne. This is a treatment that uses vaporized liquid nitrogen to cool the skin on your face. As the skin is cooled, it destroys the cell on the top layer of skin. This layer of skin is shed in the treated areas. As this skin is shed, whiteheads and blackheads are removed from the skin. This treatment will also help to unclog pores, which can help to reduce acne. Azeal Cryo treatments have anti-inflammatory properties, which are another factor that plays in the reduction of acne. This is one of our newer treatments that can be used for many different benefits. Along with reducing acne, it could help smooth wrinkles and improve the health of your skin.
Medical facials are another treatment that can help with acne. These are more than a simple spa facial. During a medical facial, one of our dermatologists will evaluate your skin, learn the type, and figure out what you need. They will create a customized product for your facial that is designed to benefit your skin and target your needs. This means that if you want to reduce acne, they can design the facial to do just that. Medical facials use medical-grade products, making them more effective than spa facials. When you receive a medical facial, the product will work in the deeper layers of skin, making it even more beneficial. These facials are often suggested for those with bad acne and can help rid your face of these blemishes.
Chemical peels are often used to treat acne and acne scars, depending on the type of peel you get. Superficial and moderate chemical peels can help heal acne while moderate and deep peels can reduce the appearance of acne scars. Chemical peels have anti-inflammatory properties and remove the top layer of skin, leaving your skin fresh and healthy. If you are looking to improve mild acne, a superficial chemical peel can help! If you want to reduce the appearance of acne scars, a moderate or deep peel will do the trick. This is a treatment that will take time to see the results. Your skin will initially look red, blotchy, and flaky before the fresh layer of skin is exposed.
Micro-needling is a treatment that is used to stimulate your skin’s healing response. There are many benefits to micro-needling, from younger looking skin to improved pigmentation. This treatment can also help with acne. This may be due to the fact that micro-needling reduces sebum production, making the skin less oily. Micro-needling can also help your skin better absorb your skin care products and acne treatments, making them even more effective. This is a useful treatment for treating acne scarring as well.
No, a skin care consultation will not heal your acne. But our dermatologist can help you better understand your skin and what is causing your acne. A skin care consultation will allow you to learn what is best for your skin and how to attack the acne. There are many acne treatments out there, and everyone has different skin and a different cause of acne. This means that not every treatment will work the same for every single person with acne. Our skin experts can help you better understand your skin, your acne, and what treatments will work best for you. We can recommend different products, treatments, or lifestyle changes that can help reduce your acne and allow you to enjoy clearer skin!
You don’t have to live with acne and we understand that finding the right treatment is difficult. If you have tried every acne treatment in the book and nothing has worked, schedule a skin care consultation. We will help you understand your acne better and the best ways to treat it.
