Adult Acne

Adult Acne

When most people think of acne, they picture the typical teenager outbreak, but the truth is much different. Men and women can develop acne into adulthood, and it isn’t uncommon to have this condition even into one’s 50’s. In fact, over 50 million American’s will deal with this condition at some point, so if you are struggling with it right now, you are not alone. What is important to understand is that we have many acne treatments that can deal with your outbreak and give you the skin you have been waiting for.

 Teenage Acne

Teenage Acne

An outbreak is the result of the sebaceous glands, which are found in one’s skin, becoming infected or inflamed. This circumstance results in pimples, also known as zits, on the face as well as other areas of the body. This condition is normally found among teenagers. Most teenagers will experience this, but if that’s the case for you, take heart. There are treatments to address your condition that will have your skin looking and feeling better before you know it.

Laser Acne Treatment Santa Monica

There are a lot of treatments in Santa Monica to choose from, but most of them simply mask symptoms and do not address the underlying problem. A laser procedure is not the same because it targets the source of the problem by getting rid of the bacteria that causes blemishes. Breakouts occur when bacteria build up in these spots on your face. When you get rid of the bacteria in the area and allow more oxygen into the skin, you will never have to worry about another acne breakout in the future. The same effect can be achieved by getting a chemical peel, which involves removing the old skin layers and promotes the production of new skin cells in various areas of the body.

Santa Monica Facial Treatments

Facials are also a great option to choose at Skin Med Spa. A good facial is helpful to moisten the skin and remove the blemishes, harmful toxins and acne in the area. What’s great about getting facial treatments at Skin Med Spa is that a trained medical professional will do the procedure, unlike in regular day spas.

Acne Cortisone Shots Santa Monica

Bad acne around the face and neck can become hardened after some time. This causes cysts in the area. A cortisone shot from Skin Med Spa will help drain these cysts. The treatment works the same as a steroid treatment, draining and shrinking the problem area. Once the fluid is totally removed, a topical treatment is often applied so acne wouldn’t re-occur in the area.

When receiving a treatment at a med spa, you can be confident that you’re in the hands of well-trained and board-certified health professionals who employ the latest technology has to offer. The aforementioned treatment options offer excellent benefits that extend much further than the treatments you will find in a traditional spa. Visit Skin Med Spa today for the latest treatment methods in the industry. It will help improve your health and wellbeing in the long run.
