Acne, Rosacea Treatment Toronto

What is Acne And Rrosacea Treatment?

The use of salicylic acid peels and the IPL Blue Light are some of the innovative treatments used for patients suffering from adult acne, teenage acne, black acne, skin redness, or facial spider veins. These new ways of treating skin conditions offer a welcome change from the older, more intrusive skin peels and treatments. Both of these procedures are relatively quick and allow patients to resume their normal activities immediately.

Acne And Rosacea Treatment Benefits

  • IPL Blue Light offers a short-term acne cure for mild conditions;
  • Salicylic acid controls and clears up active cases of acne, helping patients avoid developing acne scars;
  • Salicylic acid contains both exfoliating agents and skin calming properties, which treat skin gently;
  • IPL Blue Light can reduce the size of facial spider veins in patients who have rosacea, clearing up skin redness and removing the blushed appearance.

How Does Acne And Rosacea Treatment Work?

When applying the salicylic acid peel as an acne treatment, the doctor will select a peel formulation that is customized to the patient's skin condition and apply it evenly over the entire face. Salicylic acid peels may result in slight stinging or burning when they are applied to the skin, but the sensation usually goes away after a few minutes. Afterwards, the doctor applies a layer of sunscreen over the treated area to protect it from the sun following the procedure.

IPL Blue Light treatment is performed differently. Patients who make an appointment to have this procedure can also have it done at the dermatologist's office in Yorkville, Toronto. After applying a topical solution, such as aminolevulinic acid, to the skin for an hour, the patient sits under a Photodynamic Therapy device, which emits a blue light on the face for up to 16 minutes. While receiving IPL Blue Light treatment, some patients have reported feeling slight popping or stinging sensations.

Acne And Rosacea Treatment Recovery

Since both of these procedures are non-invasive, the recovery process is fairly short. After receiving IPL Blue Light treatment or a salicylic acid peel patients must avoid sun exposure for 48 hours and apply a strong sunscreen to protect their skin from burning.

Acne And Rosacea Treatment Safety & Risks

The side effects of both of these procedures are minimal. Skin may appear red or dry for up to seven days afterward. Some patients have reported swelling and irritation. Patients who receive IPL Blue Light therapy may experience slight skin flaking as well.
