Adult Acne Treatments That Really Work

By | Skin

When you were younger, you knew that your face was going to break out in pimples. You knew that acne was a normal part of your teen years, but you didn’t expect to continue to have breakouts well into your 20s, 30s, and beyond. The fact is, though society tells us that acne is an adolescent problem, millions of adults continue to suffer from acne throughout their lives.

Fortunately, though, there are adult acne treatments that really do work to reduce or completely eliminate breakouts and acne scars. Before you buy an over-the-counter remedy that will claim to cure your acne but will only leave you with cracked, dry skin, check out a few of the best options for getting rid of acne altogether.

Photofacials

During a photofacial, your skin will be exposed to intense light focused on a very specific part of the light spectrum. Studies have shown that this kind of treatment can offer dramatic improvements for skin tone and health. Light in the blue spectrum in particular has been shown to kill the bacteria deep in your pores that cause pimples and acne breakouts to form. Instead of drying your skin out with harsh cleansers and/or acne creams, you may actually be able to stop breakouts before they start.

Chemical Peels

You may also be able to rid your face of acne with a chemical peel. Chemical peels are made up of enzymes and vitamins that eat away the top layers of damaged and dead skin on your face. Those damaged, dead, and dying skin cells will often clog your pores, and they make your skin look dull and aged, too. With a chemical peel, you can treat your acne while rejuvenating your skin at the same time.

Laser Skin Treatments

If you’re like most adults who’ve battle with acne their whole lives, you probably have at least a few acne scars, even if you’ve tried your best to avoid irritating your skin, popping pimples, or doing anything else to cause scarring. Fortunately, you don’t have to live with those scars forever. Instead, you can opt for laser skin treatments. An ablative laser procedure will burn away the scar tissue, leaving behind healthy, beautiful skin and no acne scars at all.

You might also want to consider non-ablative laser treatment options, as well. Basically, with one of these treatments, the heat of the laser will stimulate collagen production. As collagen is the chemical that helps keep your skin supple and young, it will also help in preventing scar tissue from forming and keeping your skin looking gorgeous as you defeat your adult acne for good.

Dermal Fillers

Finally, dermal fillers can do wonders to make your acne scars disappear. You probably already know that these injections are often used to fill in fine lines and wrinkles, right? Well, they can also fill in the crags and sunken areas left by acne scars. After a session of dermal filler injections, your face will be smooth and gorgeous once more.

Acne Treatment in a Few Easy Steps

By | Treatment

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.

Are you ready to get rid of your acne scars and reveal the beautiful skin lying underneath them? Do you want to say goodbye to acne breakouts for good? At Juvia Med Spa, we offer numerous types of acne treatments and scar healing procedures to help you get back your beautiful skin and live an acne-free life, and we offer a free consultation and skin analysis for all of our new patients. So, if you’re ready to unveil your gorgeous complexion and kick your acne to the curb, call us today at 817-427-3700 to schedule your consultation.

 

Why Should You Choose Juvederm Treatment?

By | Treatment

Dermal filler injections are amazingly versatile, minimally invasive treatments that can address a wide variety of cosmetic issues. Whether you’ve always wanted fuller, sexier lips, or your cheeks are starting to sag, you can get Juvederm treatments to give you a more attractive, younger appearance. Let’s take a closer look at a few of the great reasons to choose Juvederm or another dermal filler to give you the look you’ve been dreaming of.

 

Get Sexy Lips in a Single Visit

Whether you were born with naturally thin lips or you’ve noticed that your lips are looking thinner and more wrinkled with age, Juvederm treatment can help in a single visit. Because we use flexible microcannulas for our dermal injections, bruising is virtually unheard of, and the injections are much more comfortable than using traditional needles. Not only that, but you’ll notice an immediate difference that can last for several weeks or even a few months before your next treatment.

Rejuvenate Your Eyes

If you’re bothered by crow’s feet around the corners of your eyes, sagging lids, or dark circles under your eyes, you might be surprised at how effective Juvederm treatments can be. Filler injections like these can fill in those crow’s feet, and they can lift your brows to give your eyelids a tighter, more youthful appearance.

As for those dark circles under your eyes, they’re usually caused by blood vessels showing through thin skin as youthful fat deposits in the face begin to fade with age. Juvederm injections can fill in the space left by the disappearance of fat deposits, making hollows and dark circles disappear altogether.

Plump Your Cheeks and Tighten Your Jaw Line

Similarly, when you were younger, you had more fat under the skin in your cheeks, especially over the apples of your cheeks. This is one instance where losing fat can be a disadvantage and can make you look older. Fortunately, though, simple dermal filler injections overreach cheekbone will lift your cheeks, reduce the appearance of lines around your mouth, and tighten the skin around your jaw line, as well. In other words, you can basically get most of the same results you’d get from a facelift but without surgery.

 

Avoid the High Cost and Downtime of Surgery

Speaking of surgery, dermal filler injections are minimally invasive and involve very little discomfort. After your treatment, you won’t need any bed rest or downtime, and your treatments will not be nearly as expensive as cosmetic surgery. Plus, they last several weeks or up to a few months between treatments, so it’s easy to continue to look and feel amazing with periodic Juvederm injections.

While Juvederm is the preferred dermal filler for many patients, some may prefer Restylane, Radiesse, Belotero, Juvederm Voluma, or others. At Juvia Med Spa, we offer every available type of injectable dermal filler, and after a free consultation and evaluation we can determine the best one for you and your needs.

To find out more about Juvederm and other dermal fillers or to schedule your free consultation, call us at Juvia Med Spa today at 817-427-3700. We are standing by to answer all of your questions and help you achieve your goals for your appearance and health, so give us a call today to get started!

4 Acne Treatment Products That Work

By | Uncategorized

If you want to get rid of recurring acne outbreaks, you should probably consider laser skin resurfacing, a chemical peel, or microdermabrasion. These treatments, which you can find at quality medical spas like Juvia Med Spa, are proven to help rid the face of the bacteria that create acne to begin with. However, a few sessions of laser treatments or a chemical peel wont get rid of your acne forever if you dont take care of your skin in between visits to the spa.

But what products should you use when cleansing and clearing your face at home? Its hard to choose, when every product you see advertised claims to be the most effective solution on the market, right? Well, to answer your question, here are 4 products that we at Juvia Med Spa love and highly recommend to all of our clients for acne treatment and skin cleansing:

Revision Brightening Facial Wash

This cleanser is full of alpha and beta hydroxy acids, and it has tons of brightening botanicals for a natural acne treatment that leaves your skin hydrated and cleansed of toxins and impurities.

Obagi Foaming Gel

This foaming gel cleanser is amazing for removing makeup and clearing your pores of impurities that youve come in contact with throughout the day.

Revision Exfoliating Facial Rinse

Exfoliate away dead and damaged skin cells and invigorate your skin at the same time with this brightening and revitalizing toner.

Obagi Clear

This hydroquinone-based skin brightener clears pores and corrects age spots and sun spots, too, for a clean, even complexion. A valid prescription is required for this product.

Youre looking for products that work, look no farther than Obagi and Revision Skincare, and if you have questions about your skin care regimen, just give us a call at Juvia Med Spa at 817-427-3700.

Let Juvia Med Spa Treat Your Acne Scars

By | Skin, Treatment

When youre a teenager, youre expected to get acne infections. Theyre just a part of growing up, right? But what happens when youve already grown up and you still get adult acne infections? Unfortunately, this is incredibly common, and a lot of people dont know how to deal with them.

You can wash your face every morning and every evening. You can avoid touching your face with your fingers or palms. You can keep your hair from falling over your forehead and keep facial wipes with you to use throughout the day. But you still breakout, why?

Adult acne infections tend to be smaller and more centralized than the acne infections you got in your teens, but theyre also deeper and harder to get rid of for good. No matter how much you wash your face, they still pop up. Fortunately, though, there are treatments that can both prevent breakouts and help get rid of existing acne scars.

If your face breaks out regularly or even just periodically, you could benefit from a chemical peel or microdermabrasion. These procedures strip away dead and damaged skin cells, allowing young cells to come to the surface. With the right facial, you can also pull toxins and grime from your pores to prevent future breakouts.

Juvia Med Spa offers these services, as well as laser skin resurfacing and other treatments that minimize and even erase blemishes and acne scars. Whether you have old or new scars, you dont have to keep living with them or with constant breakouts.

To learn more about these procedures and treatments and to find out which one is right for you, call us at Juvia Med Spa at 817-427-3700 today. Clear, youthful, attractive skin is just a phone call away!
