Acne! The Word You Never Want To Deal With
Acne!! Never a word you want to hear or have to deal with. Acne is common among adults , teenagers and sometimes even babies . It honestly can affect anyone.
Acne is when your hair follicle becomes clogged with oil which can lead to an outbreak . Outbreaks can appear on the face as well as other parts of the body including back and chest .
Different types of acne include whiteheads , blackheads, Papules , pustules , cystic and even milia . Milia are those little white guys that appear and look like they can be extracted at home which is never a good idea , so save those little buggers for me !! You may think diet , stress , pollution even picking can cause acne but they can only make the condition worse .
Here at Body+Beauty Lab, we offer treatments to help with acne such as our Brilliant Clear Hydrafacial, using Dr Lam’s B-cidal sa fe acid great for cystic acne . We also have chemical peels using salicylic, mandelic and azelaic ingredients to help treat and heal breakouts.
Maybe you have tried all the creams and medicine and your ready to try our Forever Clear BBL which uses blue light to kill bacteria and infra red light to reduce inflammation and help the body’s healing process . Any and all the options can be discussed to customize which treatments would be best for your results . One of my mentors years ago introduced me to ice therapy, simply keeping a jade roller in the freezer and using it over the inflamed area or a pimple you may feeling coming to the surface . Just roll the area for a few minutes and then apply a benzoyl or topical over the affected area .
Overall acne can be embarrassing and frustrating but there are options to controlling this condition. You all know how I love my extractions so save that part for me!!! See you soon at the lab!
