The worst thing about acne might be the constant cycle of the breakout, recovery, and breakout again.
You get through the stress and discomfort of one unsightly outbreak of whiteheads, blackheads, or pimples, and then you’re confronted with signs that the problem is likely just to start up again. When new pimples start forming around sites that may still be healing, it can be tempting to give up in despair.
Skin care can get frustrating for people who struggle with recurring acne outbreaks. But Dr. Bruce Sanderson and our team can help you with informed advice. Dr. Sanderson provides skin care support at Lasercare Skin Clinic, our laser and medical spa in Little Rock, Arkansas.
In addition to your at-home skin care routine, you can improve the appearance and condition of your skin with today’s highly effective laser and medspa treatments. Here are five top treatments for recurring acne flare-ups Dr. Sanderson recommends for new and existing patients.
1. Laser therapy
Acne occurs due to bacteria on your skin and conditions like oily skin or clogged pores. Laser therapy destroys the bacteria that cause acne breakouts and often works more effectively than topical acne treatments. In Dr. Sanderson’s experienced hands, laser therapy targets bacteria without burning your skin.
2. LED light therapy
The different wavelengths present in light affect your body in different ways. For a gentle light treatment that doesn’t burn your skin, try noninvasive, pain-free LED light therapy. Blue light wavelengths specialize in clearing away acne flare-ups.
3. Oxygen with light therapy facials
In addition to giving your skin the benefits of light, you can supplement your treatment with extra oxygen to nourish and replenish your skin. If your skin has been struggling with the stress of repeated acne flare-ups, oxygen with light therapy facials could leave your skin improved, cleared, and strengthened.
Microneedling treatment minimizes acne scarring, so you can clear away unwanted evidence of past acne breakouts while improving your skin tone and texture. This type of treatment additionally stimulates renewed collagen production in the deeper layers of your skin for anti-aging and skin-tightening results.
5. Diamond microdermabrasion
The outer layers of your skin accumulate debris like dirt and dead skin cells, making acne breakouts much more likely. To start over with a clean skin surface, try microdermabrasion.
The diamond microdermabrasion wand tool at Lasercare Skin Clinic effectively resurfaces your skin, suctioning away exfoliated skin particles and debris to keep your skin acne-free. This type of treatment stimulates both your skin’s outer and inner layers.
