Oh Zit! Skin Worthy Treats Acne
Updated: Jun 27
Hello Skin Worthy fans! Today we wanted to shine a spotlight on some treatments that would be great for our acne prone patients.
At Skin Worthy we have the Sciton Laser that offers the BBL Forever Clear 3 Step System which helps to reduce the production of P.acnes bacteria (a naturally occurring bacterium present on acne prone skin). Forever Clear also treats excessive oil production, which causes unwanted breakouts and acne. The first step of this treatment is using Blue Light (420nm) to eliminate acne causing bacteria. The Blue Light targets the bacteria at its source deep down in the pores. This step helps reduce and improve the appearance of active acne as well as prevent new breakouts. The second step is using the Yellow/Red Light (560 nm) which reduces the inflammation and redness associated with acne. This step helps treat the acne associated redness and reduce acneic scarring. The third and final step is using Infrared light (590st) which is a skin tightening pass that helps to compliment the results of the first two steps. This tightens the skin, resulting in a luminous and smooth glow and provides patients with less visible acne scarring. The infrared light is perfect for patients who suffer from pitted acne scars.
To achieve the best results it is recommended that patient's complete 1-2 treatments a week for 4 weeks or until the patient is satisfied with their results. Once the initial series of treatments are complete, patients are advised to come in every 3-6 months for a maintenance treatment.
The fight against acne is best combated with combination therapy. We strongly recommend that our patients follow a consistent skincare routine using high quality products. Skin Worthy is proud to offer ZO Skin Health products. We stand behind the ZO Skincare line as they offer medical grade products with proven results and formulations. ZO actually offers acne kits where patients are able to buy multiple products from their line at a discounted price that are all suitable to target acne. The ingredients used in ZO Skincare are perfect for treating inflamed acneic skin and many of our patients have see a positive change in their skin after only a few days. All of our Skin Worthy staff are hooked on ZO products and we love to share our experiences and opinions on it, we also offer free skincare consultations to patients that are interested in learning more. Skin Worthy also offers Chemical Peels with complimentary extractions which allow patients to purge their facial impurities and leave with glowing skin.
Stubborn acne is very difficult to cope with and some patients find themselves having to seek the help of a medical professional to point them in the direction of relief. Accutane is a source of relief for patients who qualify for the treatment and many find it as a permanent solution to their acneic skin. Dr. Hemsworth will be offering patient consultations in Fall 2018 and we hope that Accutane can be another combination therapy treatment that offers our patients a future with clear, bright skin.
Once a patient's acne is under control their options are endless! Microneedling and other collagen induction therapies will help with post acne scarring and textural irregularities. Halo and BBL laser treatments will help to treat post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Both laser and collagen induction treatments help to address large gaping pores that attract dirt and bacteria which later lead to acne. With so many treatment options at Skin Worthy you shouldn't have to stress out about break outs. If you have any inquiries about our treatments feel free to contact the clinic or book a complimentary consult with one of our staff members.
