Common Skin Treatments
No matter what else is going on in our lives, we all want to feel healthy. While most of our health choices, such as diet and exercise, seem to place an emphasis on inward health, the truth is that our outer health is just as important for multiple reasons. If we treat our outer layer as well as we try to treat our inner body, we will both look and feel healthier, and looking good does
Acne Blue Light Therapy
Perhaps the most widely recognized dermatological condition is acne. Many of us have struggled with this ever since we reached puberty, and some continue to fight against it well into adulthood. The good news is that there are several treatments that can help with this affliction, and this is one of the most widely used. If your acne has not responded favorably to other treatments, this may be a good option to help out. It works by targeting the bacteria that is the root cause of acne, and because the bacteria is sensitive to blue light, this therapy usually works very well. This treatment lasts several weeks and rarely causes any side effects.
Microdermabrasion treatments are mainly used to deal with light scarring from acne, as well as age spots. The way it works is that an esthetician uses a small machine to spray tiny crystals onto your outer layer. These crystals are meant to exfoliate your layers. At the same time, suction removes the dead skin cells along with the crystals, often resulting in a rejuvenated look. If you’re using these treatments for wrinkles, more than one session may be necessary.
As we get older, we may start to think about trying to rejuvenate our appearance with anti-aging treatments. Chemical peels can accomplish this goal by working to smooth out fine lines and sunspots. There are varying degrees of strength for these treatments depending on the acids used in the chemical solution that is applied, and they are called superficial peels, medium peels, and deep peels. These treatments do require some time for healing, and it is recommended to have lotion on hand to soothe any irritation that may arise.
These are just a few of the skin treatment types to be found in San Francisco. Be sure to ask your local dermatologist what they recommend as far as treatments for you.
