3 Ways to Get Rid of Chronic Acne
- Posted on: Aug 30 2017
Whether you are 18 or 38, having acne is enough to damage your self-confidence and your skin— especially if it’s chronic. Caused by a variety of different things like too much oil production, bacteria, or hormones, sometimes it can be hard to battle chronic acne– especially on your own. Luckily, there are a variety of treatments that we can use to help you get rid of your acne and reveal a smoother, healthier complexion in the process. This article will list three ways you can get rid of chronic acne. Read on to learn more.
If your acne is caused by bacteria or hormones— especially if you are in your teens or early twenties— then one of the best ways to treat it is an oral medication. For instance, we can put you on an oral antibiotic to fight off the bacteria, or we can put you on something like birth control (for females) to help manage hormone levels.
Smoothbeam Acne Treatment
If we narrow down the cause of your acne as too much oil secretion, then we may recommend the Smoothbeam laser acne treatment. By targeting your oil glands, the laser causes them to shrink and produce less oil in the process. Additionally, the laser also stimulates the production of collagen which can help to diminish the appearance of acne scars over time.
To help you balance out the oil production across your face and get rid of your chronic acne, we may recommend that you get a series of chemical peels. By using a chemical like glycolic acid, we can target the top few layers of your skin— which in turn, encourages the production of newer, healthier, acne-free skin.
Depending on the cause and severity of your chronic acne, our skin care experts here at Allure Skin and Laser may recommend one or more of the above treatments. To learn more about chronic acne treatment, contact Allure Skin and Laser today to schedule an appointment!
