The American Academy of Dermatology reported that acne is the most common skin problem in the United States, and found that significant numbers of adults are still getting acne into their 30s, 40s, and even 50s. The good news is that SB Health & Beauty Spa, located in Tampa, Florida, provides popular skin care services and products that can help treat active acne, acne scarring and prevent future breakouts.
Microdermabrasion uses tiny crystals that exfoliate and gently remove the outer layer of skin to reveal fresher skin underneath. This treatment works best for mild acne due to clogged pores and comedones, acne scarring, hyper-pigmentation and uneven skin texture. Your skin will instantly feel smoother after your first treatment with the best results seen after 3 to 6 treatments. Microdermabrasion is also a good choice for people with skin that is sensitive to chemical peels.
Salicylic acid and glycolic acid peels are both great for treating acne and acne scarring. As with most acne treatments, a series of peels and maintenance peels are the best way to keep your acne under control.
Salicylic Acid Peels
Salicylic acid peels can be used to get rid of mild acne and prevent new blemishes from forming. These peels use beta hydroxy to exfoliate the skin and lift away dead skin cells, dissolve surface oil and penetrate deep into the skin to unclog and cleanse pores, combat bacteria, and improve collagen synthesis.
Glycolic Acid Peels
Glycolic acid peels are stronger than salicylic acid peels and are also designed to exfoliate, deep clean, and refine the skin. These peels improve the appearance of acne scars and are very effective for cystic acne which is caused by deep blockages of dead skin cells and sebum.
The single most important thing you can do to keep acne under control is to have a good skin care routine and this means using the right products for acne prone skin and getting regular facials. SB Health & Beauty Spa offers our signature deep cleansing acne facial that is recommended for clients prone to oily skin or acne. The acne facial consists of natural antibacterial ingredients to calm overactive skin, remove impurities, kill bacteria and stimulate healing and circulation of the skin.
