Contrary to popular belief, acne does not automatically go away just because a woman has gone through puberty. Even women who have gone through menopause and experienced a decrease in estrogen, they may still have to deal with acne from time to time. If the skin treatments from your teen years simply are not delivering the results you need, consider beta peels to fight your acne and get your clear skin back.
Acne occurs when pores are clogged with dead skin cells and become infected. In most cases, pore health is a reflection of one’s overall physical health; when you follow a healthy diet and drink plenty of water, pores have less waste to emit through the skin. Acne can also be fought by washing your skin twice a day. If a healthy diet and clean skin cannot fix the problem, the source of your acne is likely genetic and not caused by your health or environment.
Chemical peels help reduce the appearance of acne by stripping away dead skin cells with the use of natural or synthetic acids. Beta peels are a very popular choice because they are effective and milder than alpha-hydroxy chemical peels. This makes them ideal for dermatology patients with sensitive skin that is prone to inflammation.
Beta peels work by breaking up the dead skin cells that clog pores. Once they are loosened and fall away, pores become rejuvenated. The beta chemical shrinks them, meaning they no longer have any room for bacteria and other skin debris that causes acne. Smaller pores result in acne-free, younger-looking skin.
Beta chemicals encourage new skin cells and collagen to grow. This means beta peels are a great treatment for women whose past acne has caused scars. Acne scarring is characterized by small yet deep pits on a woman’s face, particularly around the cheeks and forehead. Cystic acne is particularly ruthless as it destroys both skin and fat, and the scars it leaves in its wake can take up to a year before they start to fade. When collagen production is stimulated by a beta peels, acne scars feel faster and are filled by new skin.
