But what if it’s not just a pimple here and there – what if you are constantly dealing with breakouts? And what if you’ve tried all the at-home remedies, but they don’t seem to help? When is it time to make an appointment for a professional acne treatment?

When You Have a Problem With Acne

Acne can be unsightly, embarrassing, and even painful. There are plenty of over-the-counter products available for acne, but if they don’t seem to be working, it may be time to make an appointment with your favorite Med Spa. Here are some other signs that it is time to get help:

At-home remedies are making it worse. If cleansers and creams you buy at the drug store not only aren’t working but are somehow making your acne worse, there may be other, deeper problems with your skin that a skin care professional can help you with. Some people find that their skin is too sensitive for over-the-counter acne solutions, and using them leads to all new skin problems.

Your acne is painful and inflamed. Large, red, painful pimples may be cystic acne. This type of acne doesn’t go away on its own and can also leave scars, so it is important to find a treatment that gets rid of it.

You aren’t enjoying life. Acne can affect your self-esteem, and you may decide you’d rather stay at home than worry about it when you are out on the town. A professional acne treatment can help you to regain your self-confidence.

If you have decided to get help for acne, contact Silk Touch Cosmetic Surgery and Medspa. Our skilled aestheticians can help! The use of a chemical peel treatment to exfoliate the skin, unclog pores, clear away debris and bacteria, and stimulate collagen production, can give you healthy-looking, smooth, and gorgeous skin. In addition, certain types of peels can help with oil control, reducing the appearance of acne lesions and scars, and improving hyperpigmentation. A consultation with our aestheticians allows them to evaluate your skin and match the right peel to your skin type and concerns.

You don’t have to live with painful and embarrassing acne. Call the Silk Touch Cosmetic Surgery and Medspa office in Boise, ID, at 208-715-9387 today for an acne treatment!
