You’re not alone. In fact, over 60+ million Americans & Canadians suffer from acne and unfortunately many have difficulty find a treatment that works.
For many individuals, exfoliants, microdermabrasion and chemical peels can provide noticeable benefits, as exfoliating helps clear pores of dead skin, dirt, and oil. With safe techniques, exfoliating at home or treatments in a professional environment can unplug pores, allowing subsequent treatments and products to work more effectively.
Aesthetic Nurse Chantal Ward, RN cautions those who suffer from acne to not “over do it”.
“Many patients with acne tend to panic and over-exfoliate, while some use harsh products that will eventually dry out the skin and lead to breakouts. It is important to establish a sound routine at home. When choosing acne skin care make try to use a system that is ph-balanced, has ingredients that will kill bacteria, is free of toxins and allergens and most importantly, can hydrate without clogging”.
Affordable laser treatments such as Isolaz™ have also proven to be effective as the light kills bacteria, and Isolaz™ employs gentle suction that clears pores of sebum and congestion without damaging the skin.
