Problem skin getting you down? Acne, hyperpigmentation, scarring or dull, dry skin causing you frustration? We could have the answer…
Problem skin can affect you all the way through adolescence and into adulthood. Issues like acne and hyperpigmentation can be tough to live with. If you struggle with your skin, you may have felt embarrassed because of it, but you’re not alone.
You don’t need to deal with sore, blemished skin forever, as there is a simple non-surgical solution that can help.
There are lots of causes of acne and hyperpigmentation, but whatever the cause, a HydraFacial could be the ultimate solution to free you from your skin stress. In this blog post, we’ll explain the benefits of a HydraFacial and how this revolutionary treatment can transform your problem skin.
What Causes Acne?
In the UK alone, acne affects over 95% of people aged between 11 and 30. Of that number, around 14% of people will seek help for acne from their GP. While acne can be serious and difficult to hide, it’s actually just one of your body’s natural processes.
Unfortunately, acne occurs when your body takes this process too far. It starts with sebum, a lubricating oily substance that is produced by your skin and essential for skin health.
This sebum can block your hair follicles, along with dead skin cells and daily dirt that can collect on the skin. Because the follicle is plugged, this can trigger a bacterial infection, producing ‘spots’ or raised, bumpy red areas, often called cystic acne.
In turn, this can trigger the process further, leading to more infection and more severe acne.
This vicious cycle is sometimes wrongly blamed on poor skin hygiene, but in fact acne can affect anyone. Usually acne that appears during adolescence will resolve in adulthood, once your hormones have settled, but this isn’t always the case.
Many adults suffer from acne and it’s an extremely common condition particularly linked to hormone fluctuations. Women may notice monthly acne appearing during their menstrual cycle, and both men and women may find acne affects them during later life as their testosterone and oestrogen levels drop.
And What About Hyperpigmentation?
Hyperpigmentation is another common ‘problem skin’ condition. Hyperpigmentation refers to darker patches of skin, when compared with the rest of your skin.
This is a condition that affects people of all skin tones, and it can especially affect older skin. But the causes of hyperpigmentation are no mystery.
Hyperpigmentation can be a result of acne scars, sunlight, hormone fluctuations and skin picking. The visible darkening happens because the skin starts to produce too much melanin, which is responsible for skin colouring – this is the pigment part of hyperpigmentation.
There are three main types of this condition that you may be affected by:
- Melasma (more often related to hormone changes and pregnant women)
- Post-inflammatory (relates to a skin reaction following injury, such as acne spots)
- Age spots (more often seen on older skin as a result of ageing – sometimes called liver spots)
How To Solve Problem Skin With HydraFacial
When it comes to acne and hyperpigmentation, there are several home remedies that may give you a little relief or subtle changes, but there’s a non-surgical treatment that can give you long-lasting, noticeable results.
The HydraFacial is a multistep treatment that specifically targets issues like debris stuck in your pores, discolouration and dry, unhealthy skin. The results are immediately visible, as it doesn’t just extract the bad stuff, it also treats with active botanicals and antioxidants. This is the ‘antidote’ to sun damage, environmental pollution or stress on your face.
This hydrating, brightening treatment is ideal for anyone battling with problem skin. Initial results last from 5 to 7 days with further treatments gradually improving your skin’s appearance more permanently over time.
So, rather than spending a fortune on expensive serums and creams that only provide very limited results, why not try something that can work on a deeper lever to transform your skin’s health?
How It Works
How does the HydraFacial work on problem skin?
The HydraFacial is an effective treatment that involves a clinically proven 6-step process:
1) Detox – This eliminates toxins and stimulates circulation throughout your skin
2) Cleanse & exfoliate – Lifting impurities, this provides a deep clean for your pores and removes sebum deposits that could cause acne breakouts if left
3) Brighten – This step will remove any stubborn debris from your pores using a glycolic and salicylic solution, which gives your skin a glow that HydraFacial is famed for and evens any imbalance of colour
4) Extract – Blackheads and impurities are removed using honey extract which has antibacterial properties and salicylic acid which protects your skin from future toxins
5) Hydration – Using hyaluronic acid, antioxidants and peptides we treat your skin to a rehydrating experience that brings dry skin back to life
6) LED Rejuvenation – This step involves LED light to stimulate your collagen growth for longer-term smoothness so your skin looks younger
