Is Your Mask Causing Acne Breakouts?

Nov acne

One of the side effects of wearing facial coverings and masks this year has been adult acne breakouts. If you have had pimples appear on your chin, lower cheeks and around your mouth in recent months, you are not alone. Wearing face coverings can irritate the skin, increase clogged pores and impact the overall health of the skin, resulting in blackheads and acne breakouts. To restore clear skin, consider these skin and acne treatments.

Laser Skin Treatments

Laser skin treatments use energy to change the tone and texture of the skin – the type of energy and depth change the possible impacts. IPL or intense pulse light treatments can be used to reduce large pores and improve skin clarity, including reducing acne breakouts and scarring. The light energy can also reduce acne-causing bacteria on the skin.

VI Peel

Exfoliation and deep cleansing can help eliminate acne breakouts and improve the overall health of the skin. Our VI Peel uses high-quality ingredients like plant enzymes and acids to remove dead skin cells. The peel can clear the pores to brighten and tighten the top layer of skin. The VI Peel can rejuvenate the skin, resulting in fewer lines, wrinkles and acne breakouts for beautiful, healthy-appearing skin.
