For many of us, we look back on our teenage years with a sense of longing. We wish to have back the years of no responsibility, endless friends, and abounding youth.
We yearn for a time where French fries had no consequences, gray hairs were restricted only to our grandparents, and energy was ample. But for all the accolades of our adolescence from which we must eventually graduate, there is an aspect to childhood that should be, and now can be, forever forgotten.
Acne starts to make itself known in preteen years but is not only designated to pubescent youngsters.
Nope, thanks to a slew of causes, including medications, hormonal changes, diet, hygiene, depression, stress, excess oil production, bacteria, and clogged hair follicles, up to 20% of all acne reported is by adults.
Fun fact: often times, the ways with which we try to manage our breakouts makes matters worse. Skin care regimens that excessively over-dry the skin or the use of cover-up makeup that further clogs the problematic pores can have the opposite effect intended. Not to mention, pummeling your zits with under-nail bacteria while trying to recreate an episode of Dr. Pimple Popper is not helping, and in fact, is likely to cause extra inflammation and potential scarring. In other words, back away from the whiteheads, blackheads, pimples, papules, and pustules! It’s time for the professionals to have a pop at it.
Let Us Get Under Your Skin
Viora’s V-IPL handpiece uses a 415nm filter which emits a blue light on the Electromagnetic Spectrum. When it is applied to the skin, a wavelength is then created that causes a chemical reaction that then forces reactive oxygen into the problem areas. Luckily for your inflamed and pimply face, neck, back, or chest; bacteria cannot survive when oxygen is present, so your acne has no choice but to evacuate. This revolutionary tool not only pushes your zits out faster than your parents pushed you out of the house on your eighteenth birthday, but by its nature, the wavelengths the handpiece emits also rejuvenates distressed skin and reverses inflammation. Also, Viora’s V-IPL handpiece can tackle any size area, anywhere on the body. Thanks to its innovative PCR™ Technology, it’s also safe for all skin types and is especially effective on mild and moderate acne lesions. That said, please contact your practitioner if you are experiencing cystic, nodular, or more advanced acne (grades V-VI).
FINALLY END THE AWKWARD STAGE
And that’s it! In just 8-10 quick treatment sessions, your acne can be tamed, which is probably about the same length of time as your first teenage relationship, but without all the heartache. So, reserve your high school reunions for old friends and fond memories – you can skip the homecoming with blemishes, boils, and bumps.
