Best treatments and facial to cure acne safely in San Diego.

Many people around the world suffer from acne. In the United States, almost 85% of people suffer from acne in their lives, and approximately 20% of cases are classified as severe.

Acne is much more common in puberty because of the hormonal changes that develop there; however, it can also appear in adulthood, generating discomfort that has already been overcome.

How does acne appear?

Typically, acne appears as blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, and nodules, accompanied by inflammation, reddened, and painful skin. Its most severe forms can even produce cysts that leave scars.

When does acne occur?

This common condition occurs when there is a blockage in the skin’s pores, possibly because of an excess of sebum, bacteria, or inflammation. When we talk about acne, we cannot mention a single cause since this can be a multifactorial problem, which includes:

  • Hormonal changes.
  • Hereditary factors.
  • Clogged skin pores.
  • Poor hygiene.
  • Excess oil production by the skin’s sebaceous glands.
  • Environmental factors (humidity or pollution).
  • Infection and inflammation are caused by the bacteria Propionibacterium acnes.
  • High-carbohydrate and unhealthy diet.
  • This is one of the body’s worst enemies. It can cause acne or worsen existing acne.

What areas are mainly affected by acne?

Acne outbreaks usually appear on the face, specifically on the forehead, chin, and cheeks. But it can also appear on the back, neck, chest, and shoulders.

Factors that increase the risk of acne:

When the bacteria Propionibacterium acnes accumulate in the pores, the skin becomes inflamed with lesions and blemishes appear. Factors that increase the risk of this happening are:

  • Puberty; acne occurs more frequently in adolescents during puberty.
  • Hormonal changes; are common during puberty, pregnancy, menopause, and other hormonal imbalances.
  • Genetics
  • Sebum (oily substances in the skin); when there are too many oil glands in the skin, pores can get clogged which can lead to acne
  • Skin pressured by friction

Can acne get worse?

When the lesions are not properly treated and followed up, they can become complicated with:

  • Bacterial superinfections;  from poor hygiene, constant handling of objects, or dirty hands with pimple discharge often worsen the infection.
  • Long-lasting breakouts, when this happens discomfort will arise and require special treatments to eliminate the acne
  • Changes in skin color and texture.

Acne Facial with Celluma Light Therapy:

Celluma Light Therapy is an FDA-approved treatment for treating acne, relieving pain, scars, and signs of aging. Due to its flexible and moldable system, it can approach all the areas you want to reach to eliminate acne, whether it’s on your face or body.

Celluma Light Therapy San Diego

Celluma Light Therapy helps to fight acne.

How does Celluma work?

Celluma is a low-level light therapy that heals the skin to repair damaged cells. Its mechanism of action is to emit high-intensity blue and red light through an LED-emitting diode that provides energy to the compromised cells and ultimately improves the skin’s appearance.

Blue light attacks the harmful bacteria at the root of many acne breakouts. The result of Celluma is smooth, healthy-looking skin.

Thus, Celluma is ideal for preventing and treating acne, as its blue light eliminates the causative bacteria, improves inflammation and pain, and prevents recurrences. In addition, it works as an anti-aging therapy, as it boosts the formation of collagen and elastin, which restores brightness and tone and contributes to skin repair.

What are Celluma sessions like?

Treatments do not require anesthesia, are painless, have no recovery time, and are non-invasive.Celluma is completed in 30 minutes. Although a single session is ideal for replenishing vital hydration, restoring radiance, or soothing irritated skin, most acne patients require a series of treatments twice a week for 6 weeks for optimal and permanent results.

Benefits of Celluma Light Therapy:

  • Reduces the appearance of acne.
  • Eliminates acne bacteria.
  • Reduces acne scarring.
  • Relieves pain.
  • Reduces stiffness and inflammation.
  • Improves circulation.
  • Muscle recovery.
  • Increases circulation and lymphatic activity
  • Promotes cell renewal and growth
  • Stimulates collagen production.
  • Diminishes wrinkles and fine lines.
  • Improves skin firmness and elasticity.
  • Improves skin texture, quality, and smoothness.

Cryo T Shock Acne Facial

Cryo Facial in San Diego that helps with anti-aging.

How does it work?

With our acne facial, we use the STAR Cryo T Shock machine.  This award-winning machine uses a manual wand that alternates cold and warm temperatures. When the wand is on the cold setting it constricts the blood vessels in your face to promote collagen. Which in turn, helps with eliminating acne. When the wand is on the warm setting, it uses thermal heat to dilate the blood vessels and open the vessels up. This alternating blood vessel constriction and vessel dilation activates immune cells and removes harmful bacteria, making it highly effective for facial cleansing.
