Acne isn’t just a problem for teenagers. It can plague adults in San Diego as well. Even those individuals who haven’t had breakouts in years can suffer the direct consequences long into their mature adult years. The scarring and other discolorations become more prominent, and no matter how much the skin is moisturized, the hyperpigmentation persists. The best way to correct acne scarring is to employ a multi-step cleansing, exfoliation, and nutrient-infusion treatment. Many of our San Diego clients come to us wanting more information about the HydraFacial and whether it can be customized to fit their needs when used as an acne treatment. The treatment can indeed be altered so that targeted problems are addressed. Basically, however, the HydraFacial treatment centers around the same procedural steps no matter what skin problem is the concern.
The HydraFacial Difference
Unlike a single treatment procedure such as a chemical peel or dermabrasion, the HydraFacial multi-step treatment combines several procedures in order for each one of them to have maximum effect. The client who has this acne treatment performed on them will enjoy a complete cleansing, skin exfoliation, light peel treatment, extraction, and nutrient infusion.
The cleansing is followed by an exfoliation procedure that employs the use of a deplaning tool. It skims the surface of the skin, lifting away dead and damaged cells. After the exfoliation is completed, a light peel solution is applied to the skin. This is a gentle peel and will lift away the epidermis in just minutes.
The next step is extraction. This is accomplished using a specialized tool that unclogs pores and sucks out organic and inorganic matter from the skin. Lastly, a special serum is infused into the skin layers. It contains antioxidants and peptides.
For Acne Scarring
These four main steps in the HydraFacial acne treatment can effectively rejuvenate the skin layers. The visual improvement is immediate, with the client enjoying a smoother, more evenly toned skin surface. However, the real magic takes place over the following months. The treatment kickstarts a rejuvenation process. Collagen production increases and skin layer development accelerates. This means that some of the damaged, discolored skin cells are replaced, and those that aren’t become much less visible. Scarring from acne or injury is hardly noticeable.
We will design a customized treatment in San Diego to target specific problems. If the concern is acne or acne scarring, we will alter the steps just a bit, and we can apply the peel in the targeted area of skin. We may also infuse additional nutrients into the skin layers where scarring is occurring.
