Acne can persist for a long time; a research paper presented by NCBI stated that prevalence of acne at 12-24 years is around 85 percent, globally.
Acne can impact appearance, leading to self-esteem and body issues. This long-lasting imperfection can persist beyond adulthood, even with timely treatment.
Acne takes a physical and mental toll on you, by leaving behind scarred tissue. There are multiple drugs and medicated creams available in the market that treat the obvious symptoms, but fail to rectify the underlying cause of acne.
But don’t lose hope just yet. There are multiple medi spas in Calgary that provide non-invasive and organic treatments for acne. Before you start your treatment plan, get to know the science behind your acne.
What is acne?
When hair follicles are accumulated with excess dead skin, bacteria, and oil, there is an outburst of pimples, blackheads or whiteheads. The common location of these red spots is on your face, chest, neck, forehead, and shoulders.
Acne is common among teenagers, but can persist for a long time. As the healing time is slow, some scarred tissue is prone to be left behind.
Here are some result-oriented solutions for your acne problems.
Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA) Peel
This treatment is ideal to treat surface level acne. In addition to treating acne, it also rejuvenates your skin by treating fine lines and imperfections. The peel takes 15 minutes to work its magic.
You might feel tightness, swelling and redness when the peel is removed from your skin. It’s recommended that you limit sun exposure for 5-10 days, until the face heals from the treatment.
You can also treat the direct source of your acne with laser treatment. Technological advancement has allowed the use of radio frequency and light energy to treat the underlying cause of your acne.
The blue light and radio frequency kills bacteria before it starts spreading and limits oil accumulation in your pores. This non-invasive therapy speeds up the recovery time and kick-starts the healing process of your existing acne scar. In order to achieve a glowing smooth skin, you need 6-8 laser treatments.
This treatment uses bipolar radio frequency (RF) to produce considerable dermal impact in the affected area on the skin.
Heat applied to your dermis boosts the production of new collagen and healthier skin tissues. This treatment rejuvenates the skin from within, by inducing cell growth. This treatment caters to multiple problems such as, stretch marks, acne marks, moderate wrinkles, skin discoloration, enlargement of skin pores, and imperfections in skin texture.
IPL uses optical energy and radio frequency to deliver results. Optical energy is applied to the affected area, which penetrates deep inside the epidermis.
In order to reduce red spots and fine lines, IPL restricts the blood flow and collagen production in that specific facial region. The pulsating light technology can be used to heal scars, acne spots and other skin imperfections.
Microdermabrasion Facial Treatments
Exfoliating substances like crystal or diamond tips are used to apply abrasion on the skin’s surface with a hand-held device. This procedure uses scrubbing, vacuum, speed, and temperature to rid the skin of dead skin, blackhead, whiteheads, and scared tissue. 3 to 6 treatments will provide you with an ideal result.
