Unsightly blemishes can leave our skin looking uneven, red and swollen and can make us feel self-conscious and lacking confidence. Fortunately, there are ways to help prevent blemishes from popping up and methods to quickly remove them if they do.

What is a

blemish?

A blemish, or pimple, occurs when the pores of the skin become clogged. Dead skin cells, oil and other debris cause the pore to become inflamed and infected. These blemishes can become large and red, causing the surrounding skin to swell as well. Pimples usually fill with fluid and pus and attempting to treat them on your own, may cause bruising, scabbing and permanent scarring to occur.

What treatment options can help prevent blemishes?

There are many different options that can be implemented to reduce the severity and frequency of future outbreaks of blemishes on the skin. Some of the most common treatment options include:

Topical Retinoid Treatments

Many topical preparations containing retinoids can help to clear up skin and prevent pimples from forming. These creams contain a form of vitamin A that targets acne and reduces redness. These formulas can make your skin more sensitive to the sun however, so extra care should be taken when going outside.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels act to resurface the outer layer of the skin. They reduce redness and clear up blemishes and can help to prevent future pimples from forming. These peels can cause skin to be quite red for a few days afterwards so allowing for proper healing time is important.

This relatively new technology uses a device that combines a laser with a small vacuum. The laser helps to even out skin tone, smooths the skin and also kills any bacteria that is living within the pores on the skin’s surface. The vacuum uses a gentle sucking motion to remove excess oil and debris, leaving skin glowing and refreshed. This procedure is fast and painless and results can be seen after the very first session. To maximize results, it is recommended that more than one treatment be performed. Photopneumatics are recommended for anyone and the only side effect is some slight redness, immediately afterwards which should disappear completely within a few hours’ time.

How Long Do The Results From These Treatments Last?

Generally speaking, none of these treatments will permanently resolve your acne problem and occasional maintenance appointments may be necessary to keep your skin looking clear and fresh. There are some steps however, that can be taken to increase the length of time between visits and to get the most out of your procedure:

  • Cleanse your face every morning and evening with a gentle cleanser
  • Use a moisturizer with SPF to hydrate and protect your skin
  • Eat a healthy balanced diet rich in fruits and vegetables, and therefore high in antioxidants
  • Drink eight to ten glasses of water a day to keep skin healthy and hydrated

Is there a way to quickly get rid of a blemish?

If you are looking for a quick blemish fix, we have the solution. Often, an unsightly pimple will arise, marking your face just before a big event, and hiding these blemishes with makeup alone can be quite challenging. Luckily, a quick and easy cortisone injection into the pimple itself can speed up healing time and eliminate redness and swelling. A small amount of this steroid is injected directly into the blemish itself and the results from this procedure can be seen almost immediately. In as little as one to two days, the blemish should be drastically diminished in size and appearance, if not completely eliminated. Cortisone is a steroid that promotes blemish healing and can provide a quick fix for unexpected pimples.
