By June 27, 2016Treatment

At Juvia Med Spa, we often treat patients who’ve fought with acne their whole lives. They come to us to heal old acne scars and to get help preventing new breakouts that can wreak havoc on their skin and their self-confidence. If you’re one of the many people who found out the hard way that acne doesn’t necessarily stop after you graduate from high school, we want you to know that you’re not alone and that there is hope for clear, gorgeous skin in your future. Here are our favorite tips for acne treatments that really work.

Use a Quality Facial Cleanser

First, as you already know, acne occurs when bacteria and oil clog your pores, causing blackheads and whiteheads to emerge. You’ve probably been told all your life that you can get rid of blemishes and acne breakouts by washing your face regularly, but that’s not entirely accurate.

Yes, washing your face regularly can help keep your complexion clear, but only if you use the right products. Wash your face with a quality facial cleanser that’s formulated for your skin type. And, when you moisturize, always use a light moisturizer or serum that’s also specifically designed for your skin type so that it won’t clog your pores and cause more breakouts.

Heal Scars and Prevent Breakouts with a Chemical Peel

If you’re like most people who suffer from acne breakouts, you probably have at least a few acne scars that you wish weren’t there. Fortunately, a single treatment can actually do a lot to smooth out those scars and prevent future breakouts, too. With a chemical peel, a formula of enzymes and vitamins will be applied to your face. The enzymes will eat away the dead and damaged skin cells (including scar tissue), while the vitamins nourish your skin. A chemical peel can do a lot to clear up the skin cells that cause your pores to get clogged, making acne breakouts much less likely in the future.

Light Therapy to Kill Bacteria

Some people suffer from periodic acne breakouts for years caused by bacteria that have invaded their pores. Light therapy (also called a photofacial) is completely noninvasive, and it can kill the bacteria that are causing your breakouts. This kind of treatment can also tighten your skin to give you a more youthful appearance, as well, and it’s available right here at Juvia Med Spa.
