Acne-prone skin requires special care and there are many treatments out there that can actually make your acne worse. Here is the reason why I DON’T like these three.
Dermaplaning is an exfoliating treatment where they use a sharp blade that will remove the top layers of the skin along with vellus hair & peach fuzz. When you are acne-prone you are already using exfoliation products on your skin daily and by doing Dermaplaning you will strip your natural skin barrier from many extra protective layers and comprise the skins’ healing process.
During Hydrafacial they use a specific device that provides suction to exfoliate and clean the skin while also infuse the skin with hydration. The problem with using suction devices on acne-prone skin is that it further irritates sensitive and inflamed skin and can easily break tiny capillaries under the skin which will cut off blood supply to heal the skin.
03. Laser Treatments
Laser treatments use high-energy targeted lights to create a controlled wounding or burning of the skin. Once the skin is wounded it will focus all its energy to heal the area. During this process, you may see improvement in your acne reductions, once your skin returns to its normal state your acne will start to resurface.
For successful acne clearing gentle and steady will win the race. Instead of the above try gentle enzyme treatments, gentle peels, and LED light treatments.
