Are You a Candidate for an Acne Lift?

skin issuesAcne creates stress on one’s life. It is a common reason for access amounts of makeup that just increase the acne on your face. As adults, we find it embarrassing to have acne. We feel that we should have outgrown this at one point. The fact of life still exists; no matter what age we are, acne still seems to find a way to form on our face.

There are too many facial wipes, lotions, scrubs and treatments out there for acne to even count. Although they may help to eliminate blackheads or keep acne under control for a period time, you will still find that it pops up on your face when you stop using the product or your skin starts to adapt to it.

What is an Acne Lift?

A new treatment introduced to the medi spa world is an acne lift treatment. This treatment exfoliates your dead skin cells and increases your cellular turnover rate. The treatment uses a combination of salicylic acid and alpha hydroxyl acid to slow your oil production in your skin. Oil is what clogs your pores and creates blackheads and acne throughout your face.

Acne Lift and Skin Types

The question remains: are you a candidate for an acne lift? There are many different skin types and treatments for acne and not all treatments will help every skin type. An acne lift is ideal for anyone who has the following type of skin:

  • Large Pores
  • Excess Oil
  • Scarring due to Acne
  • Consistent Acne Breakouts

Acne lifts are not for all skin types. The chemical peel is beneficial for oily skin but not dry skin, as it will tend to increase the dryness. Before you schedule an acne lift at a medi spa, you should book a consultation to confirm if you are the right candidate.
