HydraFacial for Teens and Teenage Acne

Teens (and their parents) typically spend a lot of time getting ready for the prom. By now you’ve found the perfect dress, selected a hair style and set the appointment, taken care of manicure and pedicure – but what about your teen’s skin? Who doesn’t want their skin to have that radiant glow that everyone notices and looks so gorgeous in photos! There’s a secret to radiant skin and it has nothing to do with lasers, plastic surgery, or sketchy drugstore products. It’s a medspa treatment called HydraFacial.

HydraFacials have skyrocketed in popularity in Hollywood in recent years, for good reason. HydraFacials are “the bomb” for minimizing the appearance of acne, scarring, and fine lines. And if you use a good skin care routine, the benefits of a HydraFacial can last for months.

What is a HydraFacial?

HydraFacial is a non-invasive treatment that uses a patented exfoliating tool with a vortex tip that vanquishes deep dirt, dead skin cells, and debris hiding in your pores. As the vortex tip glides over your skin, it lifts away dead skin cells that cause your skin to look dull. You leave with brighter skin with greater clarity, smaller pores, and an undeniable glow. The entire procedure takes about 30 minutes from start to finish.

HydraFacials are safe and effective for all skin types. It’s a quick and effective way to rejuvenate your skin without the down time of chemical peels and it’s more effective than superficial cosmetic peels or masks that only give a temporary glow. It’s a comfortable procedure with no downtime. When you leave, your skin may be slightly red, but this quickly resolves within an hour.

Another benefit of a HydraFacial is it makes your skin more receptive to other skin boosters and serums. Right after a HydraFacial, your skin care provider can apply serums or boosters appropriate for your skin and skin type. Customized booster and serum recommendations will be discussed at the time of your treatment.

Skin Care for Beautiful Skin for the Prom and Beyond

Beyond HydraFacials, how you care for your skin every day matters too. If you have acne, your skin needs special care to keep it blemish free and looking its best. Fortunately, there are skincare products with ingredients that directly address acne-prone skin concerns. Some ingredients dermatologists recommend include:

Salicylic Acid

Salicylic acid, a beta hydroxy acid made from willow bark, works as an exfoliator to remove dead skin cells, which block your pores and lead to acne outbreaks. This mild acid also has anti-inflammatory properties to help with inflamed cystic breakouts that can occur when blockages deep in the hair follicles rupture beneath the skin, making it an effective treatment for acne.

Glycolic Acid

Dermatologists recommend glycolic acid for a variety of skin issues, including acne. It’s an exfoliating acid that removes dead skin cells from the surface of your face to reveal fresher, brighter skin underneath. When you use glycolic acid on acne-prone skin, it works like a mild chemical peel to unclog pores filled with oil and bacteria. Glycolic acid helps prevent future breakouts by removing dead cells that can clog your pores and cause pimples to pop up.

Benzoyl Peroxide

Benzoyl peroxide fights the bacteria that cause acne breakouts. It also has mild anti-inflammatory properties and can reduce swelling or redness. The only downside is benzoyl peroxide can dry your skin, so it’s important to also use a moisturizer made for acne-prone skin alongside benzoyl peroxide.

Attack Acne with a Combination of Products and HydraFacial treatments

The best approach to treating acne is to attack those unsightly blemishes from different angles. It starts with a mild cleanser and a light moisturizer. Yes, even acne-prone skin needs a light, non-comedogenic moisturizer. Then, you can add more targeted therapy with products that contain benzoyl peroxide, alpha-hydroxy acids, or salicylic acid.
There are some considerations when choosing which ingredients to use on your skin. For example, salicylic acid causes less skin irritation than glycolic acid. If you have a darker skin tone, glycolic acid could irritate your skin enough to cause pigment to form, leading to dark spots. An aesthetics professional can determine which is most appropriate for your skin.

The right skincare can transform your skin. As with any other part of your beauty routine, the key is consistency.

Remember that these habits of taking care of your skin and making skin health a priority, will serve you very well throughout your life and as your skin ages. 20, 30, 40 years down the road, people will keep asking you, what’s your secret?!
