For some, acne is an inevitability.
And while it’s most common in adolescents and young adults, the older crowd isn’t immune.
June has been designated as National Acne Awareness Month in order to raise awareness about the common skin problem and highlight the treatments and products available to combat it.
One effective treatment is a facial. And at Eterna Med Spa, clients will find one that is specifically geared toward breakouts. The pore-cleansing acne facial includes a skin cleansing, exfoliation, steaming, extractions, as well as a mask and moisturizer.
Chemical peels can also help address the concern.
The Obagi Blue radiance peel, a salicylic acid-based peel “works really well for acne,” said Kathe Malinowski, lead esthetician and marketing manager for Eterna MedSpa & Laser Vein Center.
But, she noted, as with all peels, in order to see a significant result they must be done in a series of three to five.
“It’s like working out. You can’t work out one time and expect to see toned muscle. You need to stay at it. This also rings true for treating acne,” Malinowski said.
A daily skin care regimen can also help battle acne.
Experts recommend cleansing the skin each morning with a foaming gel cleanser, and then applying a non-comedogenic topical and SPF. A face cleanse before bed is also imperative to wash off the bacteria accumulated during the day.
Makeup should also be non-comedogenic.
Those with severe acne can referred to a dermatologist who may prescribe some form of medication, such as the topical cream Retin-A.
