Acne is a common skin condition that occurs as a result of clogged hair follicles. Oil and dead skin cells plug the follicles resulting in redness, inflammation, and irritation. There are several types of acne, including blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples. Acne can develop anywhere on your body, but it’s especially prevalent on the face, shoulders, back, and neck.
Acne isn’t a serious health problem, but it can affect how you view yourself. Fortunately, numerous treatments can stop acne from spreading, restoring your skin to a healthy, vibrant condition.
At European Wellness Cosmedical, Britta offers several treatments to minimize acne and its impact on your quality of life. Depending on your symptoms and the severity of your acne, she might recommend:
Medical-grade peels are a type of skin treatment that uses products like salicylic and retinoic acids. Once applied to your skin, these products encourage exfoliation. The damaged outer layer of skin peels away, revealing healthier, blemish-free skin underneath. Medical-grade peels are safe and well-tolerated; they don’t burn your skin either.
An acne facial is a facial designed to clear up clogged pores. After eradicating dirt, oil, and dead skin cells from your pores, Britta completes treatment with microdermabrasion.
Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure that involves Britta spraying the surface of your skin with sand or another fine particle. This process encourages exfoliation, removing damaged skin and revealing a healthier layer underneath.
To maintain healthy, acne-free skin, Britta might recommend using one or more products from The European Wellness private label skin care line. These lotions, ointments, and serums use all-natural products such as peptide matrixyl and vitamin B3 to promote vibrant skin.
Micropen, like microdermabrasion, is a minimally invasive procedure designed to address acne scars, sun damage, and fine lines. During micropen treatment, Britta makes a series of tiny puncture wounds across the surface of your skin, which triggers the production of collagen and elastin, two proteins responsible for keeping your skin firm, youthful, and supple.
Only a qualified aesthetics professional like Britta can determine the type of acne treatment that will be of most benefit to you. Following a thorough exam of your skin and a discussion of your goals for treatment, she can develop a custom care plan that aligns with your budget, goals, and health history.
