Acne is like the worst kind of house guest – it shows up completely uninvited, overstays its welcome, and leaves a mess after it’s gone. And you’ve probably heard this, rather than face its scarring aftermath, it is much easier to get rid of these nasty zits fast, rather than face the chaos and complications later. In fact, the best treatment for acne scars, as many have learnt, is not to have acne at all.
1. PROFESSIONAL ACNE FACIALS
Don’t underestimate what a professional acne facial can do to chase away troubled spots. When combined with proper at-home skincare, they work together to get rid of and prevent acne. This is especially important for oily, acne-prone skin. So if you are having trouble fighting problem skin with only at-home care, it’s time to seek professional help, whether its just a deep cleansing ritual to help with congestions such as the Deep Deep Clean Facial, or a clinical facial such as the Clear Blue Facial.
2. ACNE CARE AT HOME
After an acne facial, those who are prone to acne breakouts should continue to heal their skin by cleansing twice daily with a salicylic acid cleansing wash. During the day, keep the anti-congestion work going with a gentle fruit enzyme serum, which helps to heal spots and prevent future ones from forming. Before bedtime, apply a sustained release glycolic serum such as Sleep Mode to gradually train the skin to resetting its sebum production.
3. FOREVER CLEAR BBL
Speak of acne and harsh treatments come to mind. Although topical treatments such as benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid are worth trying, if you have severe, cystic acne, you are probably better off trying a treatment at your doctor’s office. Apart from oral medication and lasers, more recently, a new treatment that harnesses the power of light has been used to effectively clear acne, without creams or medication.
The Forever Clear BBL is a cutting-edge protocol developed by Sciton that uses 3 different wavelengths of light to target troubled skin. This 3-step treatment helps to clear acne by killing bacteria, reduce oil and inflammation, as well as post-acne pigmentation scars. This protocol speeds up the healing process of existing blemishes and prevents new breakouts.
