Acne isn’t necessarily an adolescent problem anymore. 20% of adults suffer from acne blemishes. Acne is caused by sebum, which is an oily substance that clogs pores and attracts bacteria then becomes inflamed. For most adults, it is caused by an imbalance of hormones—especially in pregnant and menopausal women.
While regular washing and over the counter products can work to a certain extent, it can sometimes take specifically engineered products to really combat the problem.
ClarityMD is a new product to hit the market that is designed to fight acne in men and women of all ages. It contains salicylic acid to combat the bacteria, an anti-inflammatory, and power antimicrobials. It isn’t harsh, so your skin won’t dry up or brighten up like a tomato. The two-step system includes a pore clarifying cleanser and gel.
Clearing up acne is one thing, but getting rid of the scars and tightening up your pores is another. The collogan network can be compared to a basketball net. Over the years it loosens up and the net becomes more and more stretched out. There are processes, however, that can stimulate collagen restoration to a tighter dermal network. Treatments that accomplish this are typically done at dermatologist offices or a medical spa.
One such treatment is the Syneron Sublative which uses a bi-polar radiofrequency, delivering heat deep into the skin to stimulate collagen production. The heat helps tighten the collagen network and speed up cell turnover, eliminating acne scars as well. It also treats textural irregularities, loss of radiance, and lax skin.
Three to four treatments are recommended with a month separation in between. A benefit of the Syneron Sublative treatment is quick recovery and little pain. The energy that is delivered keeps the top layer of skin completely intact.
Confidence at any age comes with clear, clean skin. These are just a few of the ways to treat these types of problems.
