Acne is a common condition that causes your skin to become red and irritated. It occurs due to clogged hair follicles and pores. Many people think acne only affects teenagers, but it’s just as common in adults.
When left untreated, acne can negatively affect your confidence and self-esteem. It can also cause permanent skin damage and scarring. Fortunately, with prompt intervention, it’s possible to remedy and even reverse.
The symptoms of acne vary depending on the severity and your skin type. Telltale signs include:
As acne progresses, you might also experience painful pus-filled bumps known as cystic lesions.
Revive™ Medical Spa provides several high-end treatments that target acne and acne scars. Ardis teaches you about each of your options:
Ardis uses the long-pulsed 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser for acne treatment. The technology uses infrared light to target water in your sebaceous glands. This heats up the glands, causing them to shrink in size. It’s an ideal treatment for people with moderate or severe acne.
Vivace combines microneedling with gentle radiofrequency energy to heat your skin for better healing. This treatment helps minimize lasting acne scars.
The VI Purify peel is a chemical peel that reduces the moisture in your skin. It treats acne and generally oily or congested skin by increasing cell turnover and expanding your pores.
The HydraFacial is a painless one-of-a-kind cleansing, extracting, and exfoliating treatment for your skin. It also involves an infusion of peptides and antioxidants to nourish your skin.
Following acne treatment, it takes about six weeks to see visible results. The Nd: YAG laser triggers your body’s natural healing process, which takes some time.
Be patient and make sure to attend all of your follow-up appointments. You’re sure to see improved skin tone and texture in no time.
