You did not cause your acne. Many people with acne have incredible skin hygiene regimens. Hormones contribute to acne. For many women, birth control pills are a first step in the treatment of acne. Adolescent hormone changes can aggravate acne. Acne can be a symptom of polycystic ovarian syndrome. We help girls and women with this from adolescence through perimenopause. In addition to hormonal treatment, we also have the Hydrafacial device.
A Hydrafacial is a very pleasant experience, starting with a cleansing, then a wand is used with gentle suction/massage removing debris from the pores and a deep pore cleansing. The next step might either be a lymphatic drainage or go right to the hydration. Blue light treatment has been shown to reduce acne and this should be part of every Hydrafacial done to treat acne. Hydrafacial combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration and antioxidant protection all at once and feels good. When first starting to treat acne, weekly treatments are recommended and we have special packages available. After a few weeks, every 6-8 week treatments are advised.
