Oh, you thought the days of acne were long gone? Just because you’re past high school and out of college, it doesn’t mean that your skin is going to cooperate. In fact, many of us develop acne later on, suddenly finding ourselves with cystic acne that arrives when we’re in our late twenties and even into our thirties. Before you start worrying about those big, red tender spots underneath the skin around your chin and jawline, take a minute to read about the HydraFacial and what it can do for you.
The HydraFacial isn’t your average facial, it’s so much more. This wonder treatment combines cleansing, exfoliation, extractions, hydration and antioxidant protection all in one short appointment (about a half hour long). It’s really more of a heavy lifting treatment than a relaxing facial (though it’s still very pampering). This powerhouse treatment is especially effective at helping patients battle acne and cystic acne (the more stubborn kind of acne). What is cystic acne? And how does a HydraFacial work to fight it? Keep reading.
Cystic acne is not what what most people think of when they hear the word, “acne.” They think red spots, or whiteheads that come and go willy nilly. Cystic acne is usually larger and more tender than that. It also tends to stay deeper underneath the skin, where it is harder to fight. Most common surface-level acne treatments don’t work on cystic acne. These deep infections can be painful or even itchy, and damaging to your self-esteem.
How can I treat it?
One of the best things we can recommend is a good deep clean to help clean those pores. HydraFacials are renowned as an excellent facial option to restore brightness to the skin, and they help patients fight the cystic acne battle, too.
Because the HydraFacial combines microdermabrasion, chemical peel and a deep-cleansing facial all together in one masterful treatment, you have a lot of power in one short appointment. This amazing treatment also improves the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, and hyperpigmentation.
