Acne can affect men and women of all ages. Pimples, blackheads, bumps, and pitted scars can drain our self-confidence and leave us feeling frustrated with the stubborn condition. Active acne can be hard to control on your own, but with the help of medical intervention, we’re able to stop acne in its tracks. If you’re tired of at-home remedies that don’t deliver on their promise, it might be time to consider enlisting the help of Capital Laser & Skin Care.
Our board-certified dermatologists continuously source the latest, most advanced treatments to give our patients a maximum outcome with as little downtime as possible. Fortunately, one of our favorite go-to treatments for acne-prone skin is entirely non-invasive. It’s called Hydrafacial, and it’s revolutionizing how we treat active acne and early acne scars.
What Can You Expect from Hydrafacial?
Hydrafacial treatments are quick, easy, and involve no discomfort. Most patients enjoy the spa-like procedure and take the 30-minute treatment time to lay back and relax. There’s no downtime after treatment making it the perfect lunchtime procedure. Many men and women opt for Hydrafacial treatments to achieve a quick pick-me-up before a night out. However, regular treatments can effectively get active acne under control.
How Does Hydrafacial Work?
Hydrafacial is a 4-step procedure that’s done in-office. Each step is specifically designed to combat active acne, smooth acne bumps, and provide total facial rejuvenation. Hydrafacial is safe and effective for all skin types, textures, and tones including the most sensitive skin. Let’s take a closer look at how Hydrafacial can be beneficial for treating acne breakouts.
Step 1: Cleanse & Exfoliate
This step entails an advanced dermaplaning technique that removes up to 2-weeks of dead skin cells and debris. Your skincare specialist is also able to reduce acne-causing bacteria during this step.
Step 2: Glycolic & Salicylic Peel
A gentle glycolic and salicylic acid peel is applied to resurface the uppermost layer of skin. This step helps facilitate cellular turnover that can fade early acne scars and other pigmentation problems.
Impurities and other pore-clogging debris is removed via non-abrasive suction methods. Your provider is able to specifically target problem areas while also giving your entire face an overall cleansing.
Step 4: Hydrate & Nourish
Lastly, a topical serum packed with skin-nourishing peptides and growth factors is applied to the skin. The active ingredients in the Hydrafacial serum are able to deeply penetrate past the superficial layers leaving you with a smoother, more even complexion upon leaving the office. At Capital Laser & Skin Care, we customize the final step to meet the needs of each and every patient.
Is Hydrafacial Right for You?
You may be a good candidate for Hydrafacial if you’d like to improve overall skin health and say goodbye to unwanted acne breakouts. With regular treatments, you’ll be able to attain blemish-free skin and keep acne at bay for good. Hydrafacial can be done as a stand-alone procedure or paired with other minimally-invasive treatments for acne.
During your initial consultation, one of our skilled dermatologists will be able to assess your individual concerns and personalize a treatment plan accordingly.
Capital Laser is such a wonderful place! Dr. Shah and the entire staff are so helpful and so focused on the customer. I was so impressed with the beautiful office and the friendly, helpful staff from first phone call to follow up phone calls. I honestly felt as though I went to a luxurious spa instead of a doctors office. I would highly recommend Capital Laser!
