Active acne refers to visible bumps, with and without fluid, that form on the skin’s surface. Acne commonly forms on the forehead, chin, and cheeks and can become inflamed, red, and in severe cases, result in scarring. Acne is common among teens and young adults; however, anyone at any age can struggle with this skin concern. Age, hormonal factors, genetics, and exposure to greasy or oily substances are a few risk factors for developing these blemishes. Other factors like diet and stress can cause and further exacerbate acne symptoms.
Active acne can make a person feel self-conscious and uncomfortable in their own skin, and is oftentimes painful and worsens if left untreated. Several treatments like over-the-counter acne cleansers, topical spot treatments, and even antibiotics can be prescribed to reduce symptoms. However, these treatments are not always effective and can lead to a variety of negative side effects like dry skin and skin irritation. Forever Clear BBL, customized facials, and chemical peels are some of the aesthetic treatments we offer to effectively reduce active acne. A variety of factors, including the severity of the acne may influence which treatment option(s) are best to achieve clearer, smoother skin.
