Hydrafacial For Cystic Acne
- Posted on: Nov 15 2018
Oh, you thought the days of acne were behind you? Just because you’re past high school and out of college, it doesn’t mean that your skin is going to play ball, too. In fact, many of us develop acne later on, suddenly developing cystic acne that hangs around in our late twenties and even into our thirties. Before you start panicking about those big, red tender spots underneath the skin around your chin and jawline, take a minute to read about the HydraFacial.
The HydraFacial isn’t your average facial. It actually combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration and antioxidant protection all at once. It’s really more of a heavy lifter treatment than a relaxing facial (though it’s still quite relaxing). This powerhouse treatment is especially effective at helping patients battle acne and cystic acne (the more stubborn acne in the family). What is cystic acne? And how does a HydraFacial work to combat it? Keep reading.
Cystic acne is different from what most people think of when they hear the word, “acne.” Cystic acne is usually larger and more tender. It also tends to live deeper underneath the skin, where it is harder to treat. Common surface-level acne treatments don’t work on cystic acne. These deep infections can be painful or even itchy.
How can I treat it?
Though some people think that lowering your sugar intake can help your cystic acne, the bumps may not be caused by food alone. Hormones are also linked to these big, red bumps that can appear on the face, chest, and back. Also, infections underneath the skin can cause more acne, so picking or trying to pop them can end in disastrous consequences.
One of the best things we can recommend is a good deep clean to help purge those pores. HydraFacials are renowned as excellent facial options (think of a facial on steroids), and they help patients fight the cystic acne battle, too.
Because the HydraFacial combines microdermabrasion, chemical peel and a deep-cleansing facial combined, you have a lot of power in one small appointment. This wonderful treatment also improves the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, congested and enlarged pores, acne and hyperpigmentation.
