How to Get Rid of Embarrassing Acne

If you’re dealing with acne, know that you’re not alone. About 90% of people will get acne at some point in their life. 

For most people, that’s during their teen years. But acne doesn’t always clear up with age. Whether you’re a teenager who’s tired of breaking out or you’re an adult sick of dealing with acne while your peers enjoy clear skin, know that you have options. 

At our PureMD MedSpa offices located in Miamisburg, Liberty Township, Miamisburg, and Dayton, Ohio, Suresh Gupta, MD, and our expert providers specialize in treating acne. If you’re ready to say goodbye to your embarrassing acne and get clear skin, we have three options you should explore. 

Three ways to get rid of acne

Forever Clear BBL™

With intense pulsed light (IPL), Dr. Gupta can address your acne where it starts. Using the Forever Clear BBL IPL system, he can direct blue light into your skin, eliminating the bacteria that causes acne in your pores. Next, he uses the system to shine yellow light on your skin, minimizing inflammation and redness. This helps your skin heal.

If you’re looking for a way to stop acne in its tracks, the Forever Clear BBL system is a noninvasive way to do exactly that. 

BHA chemical peels

Chemical peels give you a way to address another issue that comes with acneic skin: scarring. With a beta-hydroxy acid (BHA) peel, Dr. Gupta encourages the outer layer of your skin to peel away, revealing the newer, healthier, less blemished skin underneath. 

Because the peel encourages your face to exfoliate the outer layer of skin cells — including the cells that are scarred by acne — it helps to diminish the appearance of acne scars and improve your skin’s texture. 

ZO® Skin Health products

Generally, Dr. Gupta recommends pairing the above treatments with the leading-edge ZO Skin Health line of products. This gives you a way to bring powerful skin-transforming ingredients home with you. With a specialized skin care regimen using ZO products, you can create a daily routine that helps you get clearer skin. 

Paired with Forever Clear BBL treatment and/or BHA chemical peels, ZO Skin Health products help you get better results and maintain them long-term. 

Ultimately, Dr. Gupta and our team of skin health specialists have a number of ways we can help you get clearer skin. If you’re ready to say goodbye to embarrassing acne, call the PureMD MedSpa office most convenient for you or book your visit online today.
