Preventing and Clearing Breakouts
You’re getting ready to start your day when you notice that a pimple, or even several pimples, have sprung up overnight. Or maybe skin problems are a common occurrence. Either way, you’re bummed.
But there are products available to clear breakouts quickly and keep your skin clear. We can also help with professional treatments for stubborn cases or to clear your skin before a special occasion.
At Home Treatments
The main strategy for keeping your skin clear is keeping it clean. For daily care, wash with gentle soap or cleanser suited for your type of skin – dry, oily or normal, and warm, not hot water.
Gently apply cleanser with your fingers, rinse, and then finish with moisturizer. Repeat the same routine to remove makeup before going to bed.
Exfoliate once or twice per week with a scrub or skin polishing instrument, but use a light touch. Consider skipping the polishing instrument for sensitive or dry skin. Salicylic and glycolic acids fade dark spots, while benzyl peroxide kills acne-causing bacteria.
Resist the temptation to squeeze pimples or blackheads. You can permanently scar your skin or cause blocked pores to become infected if you aren’t careful. Home extraction tools aren’t recommended either – leave pimple extraction to us.
Professional Spa Treatments
Although the most stubborn breakouts are best treated by a dermatologist, as skin care specialists, we have treatments at our disposal that may not be available to you. For instance, we can clear blocked pores with professional microdermabrasion, or administer chemical peels that are stronger than what you can obtain over the counter.
We can also perform comedo extractions, which is a fancy way of saying we can get rid of that ugly pimple on your face without damaging your skin.
Whatever your skin problem, your regular care and our help as needed can get your skin clear and keep your skin clear. If problems do occur, they are more likely to be minor. In time, skin problems may become a distant memory.
