Rejuvenate Your Skin and Say Good-Bye to Acne at The Lifestyle Center!

by

You probably remember developing pimples or a little bit of acne on your face in your younger years. Most people do. While this condition typically affects teens and young adults, men and women can live with acne well into their 30s and 40s. Left untreated, acne can result in chronic breakouts, clogged pores, and even the formation of acne scars.

Here are some products that help treat acne!

Facial and Micro Peels – Acne occurs when the oil glands, which are designed to protect the skin and keep it from drying out, become over-productive and produce too much oil. Combined with dead skin, the oil can get trapped in your pores, which, along with bacteria, can cause inflammation and redness. We offer a full line of facial and micro peels to help control active acne, reduce the production of oil, and improve your skin’s texture. These treatments act to remove impurities from your pores, helping your skin look and feel its very best.

Fractora™ - If you have active acne and scarring from the acne, then Fractora™ might be right for you. This system uses radio frequency waves instead of lasers to penetrate deep into the skin, tightening your underlying tissue, reducing sebum or oil production, and smoothing out your skin’s surface. This results in a reduction of acne scarring. Fractora™ is a more comfortable and incredibly effective treatment that nearly anyone with acne scarring can benefit from.

SkinPen™ - For troublesome acne scars, we have the solution for you! SkinPen™ is the most advanced form of microneedling out there, and it is incredibly effective. By using acupuncture-like needles to stimulate the natural healing process of your skin and signal for new collagen and elastin production, the SkinPen™ system makes it possible to customize treatment for everyone.

Bellafill – For beautiful skin that lasts even longer, we recommend Bellafill! This dermal filler is used to replace lost volume in the face and reduces evidence of acne scarring by stimulating the production of collagen. Made up of microspheres of PMMA, which has been safely used in medicine for more than 60 years, Bellafill will not be absorbed or broken down by your body over time. This will provide the framework to support ongoing collagen production in your body for years to come!
