According to conventional wisdom, you’re supposed to be free of acne once you become an adult.
However, many adults will be happy (or sad, as the case may be) to let you know the conventional wisdom is wrong.
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, a significant number of adults have to deal with acne well beyond their teenage years.
Some people even have to deal with acne into their 50s.
For a disorder that’s supposed to be associated with the awkward years of being a teenager, adult acne can be difficult for someone to deal with.
It has no significant health effects, but it can be painful and have an impact one one’s self esteem.
Fortunately, Jiva Spa Toronto has many spa treatments for acne that can help clear up your skin and give you a more radiant, confident look.
A microdermabrasion is a great way to eliminate mild acne.
This procedure exfoliates skin by blasting away the outer layer of skin with tiny crystals.
The fresh, new skin underneath is not only hydrated, but free of clogged pores and comedones.
In addition, a microdermabrasion helps reduce acne scarring, smooths uneven skin texture and hyperpigmentation.
If you want a treatment that really gets down into your pores, you’re looking for a chemical peel.
Jiva Spa Toronto offers a strong glycolic acid peel that is designed to exfoliate, deep clean and refine your skin.
The treatment penetrates to the middle layers of skin in order to remove damaged skin cells, and as it does this it also gets rid of dead skin cells and sebum, two causes of acne.
The chemical peel also helps to reduce the appearance of acne scars.
A facial won’t have the immediate effects of a microdermabrasion or a chemical peel.
However, an acne facial can be an important step to getting your acne under control.
The first way a facial helps control your acne is with a deep cleaning of your face.
This can involve procedures like steam baths and facial massage to make sure that dead skin cells and other impurities are washed out.
Secondly, the spa technician in charge of your facial will select ingredients for your face mask that can kill acne-causing bacteria, remove any impurities that may cause acne, stimulate circulation in the skin and promote healing.
In some cases, a spa technician may even manually extract any blackheads or whiteheads to ensure your skin is clear before the deep cleaning treatment.
Afterwards, the spa technician can give you some advice on what skin care products might work best for you at home.
