Some would say they’re burning the candle at both ends – adding to the damage as opposed to reducing it. In these instances, there are a few helpful tips and tricks that can help you to make the most out of your skincare treatments,

·         Give It Time

When it comes to acne treatment NYC medical spa, Luxe Den recommends patients give things some time to take effect. And in many instances, it will even have to look worse on the outside before it actually gets any better. Patients should wait at least 4 weeks when using one acne treatment as this is enough time to see the results begin to take effect.

·         Scrubbing & Washing Techniques

Sometimes, individuals who feel their acne removal isn’t working, are simply scrubbing their skin too hard and causing irritations that can lead to worsening acne, as opposed to improved acne. One of the biggest mistakes people make is not washing their face enough or even too much. The face should be washed at least twice, and then any time it’s dirty or sweaty in between.

·         Treat Acne Based on Symptoms

According to Luxe Den, considered to be the top med spa NYC has in practice, the best thing you can do when you feel as though your acne removal treatment isn’t working, is to breakup your treatment protocol, into a method that will treat each individual acne symptom on its own. This means using Benzoyl peroxide to treat P. acnes bacteria, Retinoids, such as adapalene gel, to unclog pores and reduce oiliness, and Salicylic acid to ease inflammation and unclog pores. When it comes to acne scar removal, it is best to use laser methods or try out certain acid peels.

·         Don’t Touch or Pop

One of the worst things you can do is to touch your acne prone face or pop your acne pimples, with dirty fingers. This can lead to further infections and will make sure your acne is there to stay. Popping pimples might look cool online, but it’s not a safe method of acne removal unless it’s done by a professional!

·         Wash Clothes, Sheets and Pillowcases

Washing these items on a regular basis will ensure there is less bacteria present. And seeing as how you spend 8 hours a night face planted onto your pillow, it might help a lot!
