The struggle with acne can take over your life. It doesn’t always go away after our teen years and it can really affect our self esteem. Acne occurs when the sebaceous glands are inflamed or infected. These clogged pores trap dead skin cells and other bacteria inside, causing the red inflamation (the pimple). Pimples, blackheads, whiteheads and cysts are all categorized as acne. It is the most common skin condition in the United States, so Premier Spa & Laser Center wants to do all they can to help those who are struggling with it.
The second we see a pimple, most of us think to pop it. This is one of the worst things you can do. When you pop a pimple you are actually pushing the bacteria deeper into the pore, which can lead to a deeper infection and scarring. At Premier Spa & Laser we recommend Isolaz to all of our patients struggling with some form of acne. It is a unique acne therapy that uses vacuum suction and a light to clear the pores. It is painless, quick, and provides long-lasting results. It can be used on the face, neck, chest, back and shoulders. Periodic treatments are recommended until you see the desired outcome. This treatment can also be paired with peels or other skin treatments to get a better clean.
Isolaz is great at treating pimples, but what it lacks is the attention to detail to get those stubborn blackheads. Since they are so small they must be extracted manually by one of our licensed aestheticians. Before an extraction treatment, your skin should be cleaned and exfoliated to get rid of any excess dead skin cells. All of this cleaning softens the skin and opens up the pores, making blackhead extraction much easier. Extractions are usually done in combination with treatments such as microdermabrasion, hydrafacial and chemical peels.
Acne can be a lifelong struggle for some people, but it doesn’t have to be! These treatments can help, but many times there are other underlying problems that need to be addressed. This is why our aestheticians and board-certified dermatologists work closely to create a treatment plan that can include oral medications, topical creams and these services to rid you of your acne. Visit Premier Spa & Laser to meet with one of our licensed aestheticians and they’ll find the right treatment for your skin. Don’t struggle any longer, and schedule a consultation today!
