How Can I Clear Up My Face And Make It Look Younger?

Posted July 12, 2010 in Medspa, Q&A, Tips

What can I do to clear up my face and fight pimples?
Pimples are primarily caused by a buildup of dead skin cells and even some face products that contain Mineral Oil, Lanolin, and Shea Butter. There are four ways to help clean our your pores and give new life to your face. They are Exfoliation, Retinoids, Chemical Peels, and Isolaz.

What is Exfoliation?
Exfoliation is over the counter and can be found in many locations. There are countless exfoliation products in stores that can wash the pores out and remove dead skin cells.

What are Retinoids?
Retinoids require a prescription from your doctor. Topical retinoids prevent clogged pores and speed up the skin’s natural rate of exfoliation; they prevent dead skin cells from sticking together and blocking pores. The acne may worsen before it improves.

What are Chemical Peels and Isolaz?
These two require you to make an appointment with your doctor. Chemical peels can be used to get rid of acne, as well as scarring. They remove the top layers of the skin, where the most dead skin cells are and prevent pored from getting clogged. Most peels deliver results within two weeks. Isolaz is used for stubborn acne and takes care of all the basic acne catalysts: Bacteria, inflammation, oil, and clogged pores. Isolaz uses suction to clean out the pores and pulses light to target the oil and bacteria. It takes more than one visit, but most patients see improvement after their first ten-minute session.
