Acne Treatment Q & A

What is acne? 

Acne is a skin condition that happens when hair follicles get clogged up with dead skin cells or oil. It’s common among teenagers but can happen to anybody at any age. Acne usually appears on the face, chest, shoulders, or upper back. Symptoms include: 

  • Red pimples
  • Whiteheads
  • Blackheads
  • Pus-filled lumps

Acne bumps can feel tender or painful and lead to emotional distress when left untreated. The earlier you seek treatment for acne and acne scars the better your results should be.

What causes acne? 

If you or a loved one experience acne, it might be due to numerous genetic and environmental factors. Examples include:

  • Hormone changes related to puberty, pregnancy, or oral contraceptives
  • Taking certain medications
  • Eating trigger foods, such as bread, bagels, chips, and milk
  • Excess oil production
  • Clogged hair follicles
  • Excessive hormone activity
  • Bacteria
  • Genetics

Regardless of what’s causing your acne, some simple solutions are within reach at Celebrity Medi Spa.

What is the treatment for acne? 

If you suffer from acne or acne scars, practitioners at Celebrity Medi Spa review your medical history and examine your skin to determine the appropriate treatment. They might recommend:

Chemical peels

Your provider applies certain chemicals to your skin to exfoliate it and remove outer skin layers. Doing so rejuvenates skin and reduces or eliminates acne and scarring.

Oral medications or enzymes

Taking oral medications or supplemental enzymes may also reduce acne to make your skin smoother, softer, and pimple-free. Your aesthetic specialist lets you know which product best matches your needs.

Topical creams

Your practitioner may also recommend medicated topical creams to reduce acne and its symptoms.

IPL therapy

IPL, or intense pulsed light, therapy penetrates the skin with pulses of light to get rid of acne, acne scars, sun spots, spider veins, freckles, and other signs of skin aging. You’ll wear special glasses to protect your eyes from the light and might feel a sensation of rubber bands snapping against your skin during the procedure.

Which acne treatment is right for me?

Your Celebrity Medi Spa practitioner lets you know which acne treatment best matches your needs based on the severity of your condition. You might require a series of treatments or more than one aesthetic procedure to achieve optimal results. 

When you’re ready for clear, smooth, and rejuvenated skin, call the aesthetic experts at Celebrity Medi Spa or use the online scheduler for an acne treatment consultation.
