Effective teenage skin care treatments
If you’re in your teens, you are just at the right time to start taking care of your skin properly. This will help avoid skin care problems caused by improper habits such as acne, rosacea and sensitivity. It doesn’t take a lot of time, and it doesn’t have to cost a lot of money. Teen skin care differs from mum’s skin care, so don’t rely on harsh facial
cleansers and moisturisers which are most likely not meant for your skin type and will cause more problems than you started with.
Eight out of ten teens will get acne sometime during their teen years because puberty is the time when there are many hormonal changes. Hormones are chemicals that are responsible for all of the physical changes that happen when you go from being a child to an adult. Teens who have a family history of acne (their parents had acne when they were teens) are more likely to get it, however rtwskin are here to help alleviate those skin care problems.
We can offer a number of effective treatments for teenage skin
The options will depend on the severity and grade of your acne, we always recommend meeting with a practitioner to discuss your skin care needs and concerns. Our consultations here at rtwskin are complimentary.
- Laser/IPL treatment for acne: Laser or IPL acne treatment offers no downtime and will help to clear acne lesions of all grades. The treatment is very quick, you can even return to school or work following each procedure, the only side effect could be possible redness.
- Prescription products: for acne and problematic skins our doctors can prescribe prescription strength acne products that will penetrate deep into each follicle.
- Microdermabrasion: offering an exfoliation treatment can reduce the build of excessive oils, dirt and bacteria. A Microdermabrasion is the perfect procedure to remove these certain layers that can be influencing factors and contributors to acne development. A microdermabrasion is a quick, simple, effective treatment, this can either be purchased as a one off or a course.
While you can’t change your genes, you can do your best to take care of your skin. Don’t buy every acne product on the market; sometimes they are too harsh for sensitive teenage skin. The most common mistake our younger clients are making is purchasing over-the-counter (no prescription required) acne medicine such as Clearasil®, ProActiv® and Oxy®, these will only dry your skin and irritate breakouts further. Look for cleansers and moisturizers that are oil-free, and make sure you use them. If you’re like most people, acne will someday be a fleeting memory for you. Until then, there are many options available to help.
