June is not only a month of blooming flowers and vibrant sunshine but also a time to shed light on a common skin condition that affects millions of individuals worldwide — acne. Acne Awareness Month is a reminder to prioritize skin health and take necessary steps toward achieving a clear complexion. Hendrick Plastic Surgery and MedSpa makes starting a new regimen easier by offering 25% off acne skin care products during the month of June.
Acne is a skin disorder that occurs when hair follicles become clogged with oil, dead skin cells and bacteria. It can manifest in various forms such as blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, cysts or nodules. Factors like hormonal changes, genetics, poor skin care practices, stress and diet all can contribute to the development and severity of acne. Below are two ways to help improve your complexion.
Skin Care Routine
Establishing a consistent skin care routine is vital for maintaining healthy, clear skin. Hendrick Plastic Surgery and MedSpa provides access to a range of medical-grade products that are specifically formulated to treat acne and enhance overall skin health. These products often contain higher concentrations of active ingredients, ensuring optimal results. Here are some essential steps to include in your daily regimen:
- Cleansing: Start by washing your face twice a day with a gentle cleanser that suits your skin type. This helps remove dirt, excess oil and impurities that can clog your pores.
- Exfoliation: Regular exfoliation removes dead skin cells, preventing them from accumulating and clogging pores. Choose a mild exfoliant to avoid irritating your skin.
- Moisturization: Applying a moisturizer suitable for your skin type helps keep your skin hydrated and balanced. Contrary to popular belief, moisturizers are essential for acne-prone skin too, as they help regulate oil production.
- Sun Protection: Protecting your skin from harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays is crucial. Choose a sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 30 to prevent skin damage.
- Spot Treatment: Incorporate spot treatments with ingredients like salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide to target and reduce acne breakouts.
Professional Skin Care Treatments
While a consistent skin care routine forms the foundation of acne management, seeking professional treatments can provide a significant boost in achieving clearer skin. Hendrick Plastic Surgery and MedSpa offers a range of advanced treatments tailored to address various acne concerns.
- Chemical Peels: Chemical peels effectively exfoliate the skin, promoting cell turnover and reducing acne breakouts. They can also improve the appearance of acne scars and hyperpigmentation.
- OxyGeneo Balance: This 3-in-1 super facial utilizes the latest in skin rejuvenation technology by recruiting your body’s natural physiological processes to increase oxygen levels from within. Bamboo charcoal, mandelic acid and camu camu extract purify and balance oily skin, minimize pore appearance and improve skin’s overall tone, texture and clarity.
- Laser Therapy: Laser treatments, such as BroadbBand Light (BBL™) or PhotoFacial, can target acne-causing bacteria and reduce inflammation, effectively improving the overall appearance of acne-prone skin.
As we observe Acne Awareness Month, it’s important to remember that managing acne requires a holistic approach. By establishing a well-rounded skin care routine and considering professional treatments at Hendrick Plastic Surgery and MedSpa, you can take significant steps toward achieving clearer, healthier skin. Remember, each person’s skin is unique, so it’s crucial to consult with a skin care professional to develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses your specific needs.
