Being a teenager was awful. Between battling your awful hormones, emerging (and raging) sex drive, the pressure of university admissions and the desire to rebel, every day felt like a war. But then there was the physical aspect. The growing pains. The terrible haircuts. The bad fashion trends. And the acne. Most people told you that you would grow out of it. But here you are, deep in your 20s or even 30s, still coping with painful pimples, blackheads and shiny, oily skin. You feel like you’re past the point of no return and you’ve tried all the mail order treatments and fancy facial creams existing in the known free world. So if you’re a sufferer of adult acne, what can you possibly do?
Here at Skin Vitality, we know how embarrassing and undesirable it can be to experience acne and facial scarring. Even one spot can feel like walking around with a flashing neon sign attached to your head. A pimple or a blackhead is known to affect anyone’s self-confidence, especially during high-pressure situations like a first date, job interview or special event. So when a whole onslaught emerges (and the awful marks that remain after a pimple pops), it can absolutely be soul crushing. Sometimes, adults get acne because of medications, cosmetics and creams they are allergic to or even a change in their hormonal/emotional balance. (This is especially true for women on certain types of birth control.) It can be tempting to pick at your face when this occurs, which is the absolute worst thing you can do to your pores. Instead of trying to handle your acne on your own, book a consultation with our dermatology experts. We have targeted skin treatments and a whole line of products guaranteed to act as an effective cure. Because let’s face it, you’re not a teenager anymore.
For starters, our Skin Tx Treatment System acts as a restorative force for your facial tissues. For anyone who desires smaller pores, a smoother, more even skin tone and clear, spot-free skin, this line of targeted products is for you. The Medicated Acne Wash (available at our clinics and online) is specifically designed to treat clients just like you. It contains Salicylic Acid, which is one of the most effective agents against spots and blackheads. Gentle enough for daily use but strong enough to combat severe breakouts, clients will see significant results with daily use as the product dries out problem areas. For the best results, use this product in tandem with the Skin Tx Astringent and Acne Treatment Lotion.
For an even more intensive treatment, our Fraxel Skin Resurfacing treatments use laser energy to combat acne, scarring and discolouration at a cellular level. As beams of energy penetrate deep into your facial tissues, you’ll see noticeably clearer skin in just a few weeks. With both of these programs at your disposal, adult acne can be a thing of the past. Save your blackheads, pimples and whiteheads for when you feel nostalgic and feel like looking at your high school yearbook. Book a consultation with our experts and say goodbye to embarrassing, unsightly spots for good.
