Blog: Advanced Ways to Get Rid of Acne for Asian Patients

2 Minute Read: 

Some individuals of Asian descent tend to have to have more oily skin. While the cause of this varies between individuals, it is commonly attributed to the fact that Asian skin has a higher number of sebaceous glands, the glands responsible for oil (sebum) production. Oily skin not only contributes to a “shiny” appearance, but it also increases susceptibility to acne outbreaks.

Unfortunately, acne can have an incredibly negative impact on a person’s self-esteem and quality of life.

Individuals with acne often have a more severe problem than minor breakouts, so they need to seek more intense solutions. If you have tried store-bought skincare regimes with little or no success, it might be time to consider a cosmetic treatment.

How Does Vivace Microneedling Help With Acne? 

The American Academy of Dermatology has long affirmed microneedling as a great way of treating acne scars. A microneedling treatment uses a tool to prick miniature holes in the skin, which helps your body to focus on healing in that area. By making these small pricks, the body stimulates collagen, which can encourage new skin growth and reduce acne scars.

The Vivace Microneedling experience takes the process one step further by combining microneedling and radiofrequency, two of the most effective methods for treating skin and aging problems. This combination allows the treatment to focus on treating the deepest layers of the skin, getting to the root of the problem.

How Can Laser Skin Resurfacing Help Acne?

While laser skin resurfacing is well-known for minimizing aging concerns, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation, it is also beneficial for Asian patients seeking advanced acne treatment. 

Our Icon 1540™ non-ablative fractional laser utilizes intense energy pulses to stimulate your body to produce new, healthier tissue. This significantly helps to target and reduce acne scars while smoothing and strengthening the skin.
