Advanced Techniques to Get Rid of Acne

Acne is the most dreaded skin condition of women and men alike. It steals your confidence and makes you feel ugly. A simple breakout can certainly ruin your day. But what if you have been dealing with severe acne for the longest of time and you finally wish to do something about it? Well, you should! After all, severe acne may cause permanent scarring which may ruin your gorgeous looking skin for life!

Before, people think that acne happens only to teenage girls. But as years go by, we have come to discover the fact that acne excuses no one. It can happen to you, no matter what your age is. In fact, research shows that even American women in their 20s and 30s suffer from severe acne.

Understanding Cystic Acne
When we hear about acne, we often attribute the solution to lifestyle changes, a change in your lifestyle or maybe the use of a low dose antibiotic. If you have been eating healthy, sleeping early, practicing proper hygiene, and taking antibiotics but to no avail, then it means that you are dealing with a severe acne condition which most people refer to as cystic acne.

If you are dealing with cystic acne, here are some of the symptoms to watch out for:

  • Large, red and painful breakouts on different parts of your body (face, upper arms, shoulders, thighs, and chest)
  • Raised, red bumps
  • Lesions underneath the skin
  • Breakouts that produces pustules, papules, nodules, and cysts
  • Advanced Acne Treatments
    If you have been experiencing the symptoms mentioned above, then it means that you are dealing with a severe form of acne which requires advanced treatments. With that in mind, below are some of the different advanced technique to get rid of acne:

    Diamond Peel
    Peel treatments have become the go-to treatments for severe acne simply because these work! Aside from the fact that this is a painless and less invasive way of managing acne, it also minimizes possible scarring in the long run.

    Like most peels, it works by removing the layer of dead skin cells on the surface of the skin. It uses an instrument that has an abrasive diamond tip which gently loosens the dirt, debris and dead skin cells from the skin. Benefits of diamond peel treatment include improved collagen production, enhanced skin condition, and can also facilitate blackhead and whitehead removal.

    It is recommended that you undergo multiple sessions, but you can already notice amazing results after the first session. However, this treatment is not recommended for pregnant and lactating women. It may also increase your risk of skin itchiness, dryness, and sensitivity to the sun.

    Isotretinoin
    This is a type of drug that is used in treating severe cases of acne. This might be prescribed to you by your doctor if your acne did not improve even after you have already taken antibiotics.

    This vitamin-A derived drug manages acne by decreasing skin inflammation and regulating the oil production in your skin. This is a long-term treatment which must be taken for 15 to 20 weeks.

    However, this medication may cause birth defects and that it is why it is also not recommended to be taken by pregnant and lactating women. Women who also plan to take this medication are also advised to use birth control before, during and after a month of taking this treatment.

    Blue Light Therapy
    This is an FDA-approved acne treatment that uses high-intensity blue light which can kill 99% of the acne-causing bacteria on the skin.

    The treatment usually takes about 20 to 30 minutes and is considered to be pain-free. Just like the peel treatment, it would require many sessions of this treatment before you can completely get rid of acne.

    Side effects of this type of therapy may include stinging, and burning sensation as well as swelling and redness of the skin.

    Cortisone Injections
    If you are looking for a fast way on how you can get rid of acne, injections are the best way to go. But unlike most of the treatments found I this article, this one is invasive, and you may feel a bit of discomfort and pain during administration.

    The injection works by delivering cortisone, an anti-inflammatory agent, directly to the pimple. After a while, you can already feel the inflammation subsiding. As a result, the development of acne scars is also minimized.

    Microdermabrasion
    This type of treatment is becoming popular for managing acne because it is simple, fast, painless and has no downtime. It works by gently exfoliating the skin’s surface, unclogging the pores and clearing up acne.

    The procedure uses a fine abrasive tip that delivers a vacuum suction into the skin which can unclog the pores. The suction can stimulate blood circulation and lifts a small part of the skin to promote exfoliation.

    The treatment will only take about 60 minutes, and just like most acne treatments, this is repeatedly done with two to 4 weeks interval so you can achieve best results.

    Blemish Excision
    If your breakouts haven’t responded well to medications, then your doctor may recommend this option. Many people often refer to this procedure as acne surgery because it involves making a small incision in your skin. After that, the pus will be drained from the blemish.

    After clearing the pus from your pimple, you can expect your breakout to clear out and begin to heal after a while. However, this simple procedure may leave a small scar on your skin. Another thing to take note of is that this treatment does not prevent future breakout. It just addresses the existing one so you may still have to try out other treatments if you wish to avoid breakout in the future.

    So, there you go—the most advanced techniques to manage severe acne. Keep in mind, though, that some experts may recommend using a combination of any of the treatments mentioned above for you to be able to enjoy acne-free skin for good.
