Frequently Asked Questions
Is It Better To See A Dermatologist Or Esthetician For Acne?
It depends. Many patients will see both, but there are limitations to each provider. For people who have struggled with cystic acne for years and several treatment options have not worked, it may be better to see a dermatologist that prescribes can isotretinoin, a strong, oral acne medication.
However, if you beginning your journey with acne and it is not extremely severe, a master esthetician can help you. If during your consultation your master esthetician believes you should see a dermatologist, they will tell you. Our master estheticians make recommendations that are best for our patients and not perform treatments that may not be right for that patient.
Can You Address Hormonal Acne?
Yes, though, it is unlikely you will see a complete cessation in acne until you have adequately treated or moved through the hormonal problem or period causing the acne. However, treatment can help relieve inflammation, reduce breakout severity and frequency, and make it easier to manage.
What Else Can I Do To Treat My Acne?
While studies into lifestyle changes or other acne treatments still need to happen, there are a few things you can do that may help treat your acne. Some at-home or lifestyle treatments you can do to help your acne include:
- Practice a good skincare routine
- Use non-comedogenic products
- Eat well
- Avoid smoking
- Always wear sunscreen
- Stay hydrated
- Practice stress reduction techniques
Do You Treat Body Acne?
Yes, our master estheticians can treat body acne. Body acne often differs from facial acne in cause and type. However, pustules, papules, whiteheads, and blackheads can all occur on the body occasionally.
