Most dermatologists believe that women in their mid-20s or above are suitable candidates to undergo skin treatments. If you’re still very young, but you’re suffering from acne or sun damage, always consult an experienced reputable dermatologist before undergoing any skin correction treatment, no matter if that treatment is a harmless procedure such as a superficial glycolic peeling session.
The requirements of very young skin are very different. So, never listen to anybody else other than a doctor when it comes to skin treatments. And for those ladies who are in their mid-20s or above, the following skin treatments are the most recommended correction procedures.
Microneedling for Acne and Wrinkles
Microneedling, as you might have guessed, involves micro-needles. Dermats insert many micro-needles in the face of the patient to create small micro-wounds. The purpose is to awaken the collagen to start producing healthy new skin cells to replace the wounded damaged ones.
The Clinicare microneedling procedure is taken a notch higher by using the needles to transfer radio-frequency energy inside the skin. This procedure is known as RF microneedling.
The purpose of both microneedling and RF microneedling is to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, pigmentation, and open pores. It is one of the most effective anti-aging skin treatments that are very safe when done in a controlled environment by doctors.
Chemical Peeling for Acne Marks and Dullness
Glycolic peels, salicylic peels, and other sorts of peels that are usually rich in AHA are used to rejuvenate and heal acne-damaged skin. This procedure is done in three strengths.
- The lightest is the superficial peel that helps in removing dead skin, trapped oil, blackheads, whiteheads, and acne spots from the epidermis. You can take one sitting every 15 days, or as advised by your doctor.
- The medium peel goes a little beyond the epidermis. It can heal the skin from within by killing bacteria and removing acne scars.
- The deep peel is the strongest of the 3. The results are dramatic. The skin takes over a month, even more, to heal and the recovery downtime is high. But, if you have a really badly damaged skin, then this peel can give you back the spotless look you’ve lost to acne.
The bottom line, however, still is to get the treatments done by experienced dermats only. If you’re in Quebec, do reach out to the dermats at skin clinics such as Clinicare for safe skin treatment.
