How tolerant are you to painful procedures? How frustrating is it to find acne treatments that work for you? We understand that dealing with acne is not an easy job. It’s particularly challenging when the expensive procedure you invested in doesn’t work.
Elias Dermatology is now offering multiple pain-free acne treatments, each customized for your skin type. Below you will find a detailed guide explaining each procedure, and how it may be beneficial for you.
Elias’ Vi Purify Peels
Peels are well known to effectively treat acne. They are minimally invasive, and often allow for quick results and short down time.
Elias dermatology currently offers two types of Vi Peels:
HydraFacial Vi Peel
The HydraFacial peel, concentrates on anti-aging and has a booster that essentially targets pigmentation and melasma. This type of peel ultimately exfoliates and hydrates the skin, while combining antioxidants, to target issues from skin damage, clogged pores, all the way to wrinkles. The hydrafacial peel does not have any downtime, which is a great advantage. You may want to consider however, that depending on how much acne needs to be eliminated, you may want a stronger peel to help kill all the bacteria.
The Vi Peel Purify
The Vi Peel Purify is also a potent treatment for acne. It holds very powerful ingredients such as: Benzoyl Peroxide, Salicylic acid, and Vitamin C. This non-invasive treatment is painless and works on most skin types. This peel will not only provide you with great results, but will save you time as it requires only 20 minutes or less. For this procedure, no skin preparation is involved, and down time is as short as 3 days.
This procedure is a noninvasive method that is used to gently exfoliate and remove dead layers of the skin. You may want to consider hydradermabrasion if you have other skin concerns like wrinkles, blackheads, stretch marks, and scars.
Elias Dermatology now offers the HydraFacial treatment, which is a hydradermabrasion procedure involving the cleaning, exfoliation, extraction and hydration of the skin. The HydraFacial combines its ingredients, including antioxidants peptides and hyaluronic acid to deal target specific skin conditions such as wrinkles. By having this service, you are ultimately receiving a multi-step procedure that will cleanse out pores while simultaneously combining glycolic, and salicylic peel, for more beautiful skin. With this procedure you also have the option of adding blue light therapy, in order to maximize effectiveness, with zero downtime for the entire procedure.
The main highlights of this technique is that it works on all skin types and colors, and is very safe. Once the procedure is completed, your skin may turn briefly pink. Don’t worry, it’ll fully recover fairly quickly. Hydradermabrasion is a smart choice for people who don’t like to wait through a lengthy healing process.
Photodynamic Therapy (PDT)
This form of therapy utilizes a photosensitizing drug called Levulan. Once applied to the skin and exposed to BLU-U light sources, Levulan eliminates damaged skin cells to smooth the surface. Levulan may cause some stinging, but quickly subsides. Generally PDT works by decreasing oil production and killing bacteria that trigger acne.
PDT has successfully treated resistant acne where normal treatments have failed. PDT doesn’t only clear up severe cases of cystic acne, but also helps smooth your skin’s surface, and decreases the appearance of pores. If you have reached a point where multiple treatments have proven ineffective, PDT is a smart choice.
