Did you know that acne is the most prevalent skin condition in the United States? According to findings published by the American Academy of Dermatology Association, acne affects up to 50 million Americans every year. And although adolescents make up the majority of those affected, some adults in their 20s,30s or even older struggle with it as well. While some of these cases are treatable at home with quality skin care products, there are times when it’s necessary to see a medical professional.
At Kumar Aesthetics, we offer a comprehensive range of aesthetic treatments for a variety of skin concerns, including acne. We conduct thorough analyses of each client’s skin type and take their concerns into consideration to determine the right treatment for them. In this article, we discuss three of our top acne treatments which have yielded excellent results for our clients.
Retinol Plus® Facial
If your acne is caused by dead skin cells that clog your pores then the Retinol Plus Facial is just what you need. The retinol-based products from a professional line like Jan Marini Skin Care Management System work to exfoliate your skin’s outermost layer, ridding it of dirt, dead skin cells and oil.
Even more impressive is the fact that retinol works beneath your skin to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, thereby unveiling a more youthful glow. Furthermore, this treatment reduces the size of your pores and acne scars over time and prevents breakouts.
Here we have another formidable acne treatment to consider. Chemical Peels involve the application of specially formulated acid solutions to the skin. This solution chemically exfoliates the outer layer of your skin to remove dead skin which clogs pores while treating pimples, blackheads and whiteheads.
Chemical peels also reduce pore size, lessen the appearance of acne scars and may decrease sebum production, the oil that causes acne. That means in the long-term, you’ll get fewer acne breakouts.
Your aesthetician will assess your skin to determine which of the three types of chemical peels is suitable for you:
- Superficial peels – The use of mild acids like alpha-hydroxy to exfoliate and penetrate the top layer of your skin.
- Medium peels – Trichloroacetic or glycolic acid is applied to penetrate the top and middle layers of your skin.
- Deep peels – As the name suggests, acid solutions are used to fully penetrate the skin. These peels often use phenol or trichloroacetic acid.
Diamond Glow Facial
This is a revolutionary type of facial that is done using a specialized tool with diamonds at the tip. Not only does it refresh the skin by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles but it also lightens acne scars, reduce enlarged pores and prevent future breakouts.
During this treatment, the aesthetician will use the specialized tool to get rid of any dead skin cells, oil, dirt, and outside contaminants – all root causes of acne. They will then use the vacuum feature on the same tool to extract whiteheads and blackheads. In the final step they will add nourishing creams and serums to produce a stunning glow.
