Pittsburgh Acne Treatment at Pure Skin Care
Acne treatments don't have to be harsh to be effective. Our experienced team has highly effective acne treatment down to a science. We go about treating acne differently than most skin care center's. Our approach is to treat the body as a whole. On your first visit we will consult with you and go over common acne triggers such as diet, cosmetics, and skin care products that you are currently using. It is our theory at Pure Skin Care Pittsburgh that many factors can be involved in resistant acne. Our licensed esthetic staff will talk with you and learn about your current skin care routine and dietary intake, identifying factors that could be contributing to your acne. We have had much success with our acne treatment programs and most clients that adhere to our recommendations see a dramatic result within 8 weeks!
Two of our favorite tools in the treatment of acne is diamond tip microdermabrasion and mild chemical peels. Microdermabrasion is a very effective skin treatment that creates a fresh, glowing and clear look. The diamond tip will abrade or remove the stratum corneum, the top layer of skin, and the dead skin and debris is vacuumed and filtered into the system and discarded. With this layer of dead skin cells removed, your skin care products are able to penetrate more deeply into the skin, increasing absorption. Next, anti acne solutions such as PCA Skin's Sensi peel are applied. The exfoliation action greatly increases cell turnover, thus allowing newer, fresher skin to come to the surface quicker. PCA peels (depending on the formula) are gentle enough for even those with sensitive skin or rosacea.

Acne treatments 101: Receiving an acne treatment once a month in the office is only the start. Home care is a crucial step in getting rid of stubborn acne. The majority of products purchased at your local drug or grocery store do not have enough of active ingredient to effectively help treat acne. In addition, many over the counter acne products contain harsh irritants and chemical additives that leave your skin dry and worse off than before you started using them. For this reason, we use PCA and Eminence organic skin care products in all of our acne treatment. PCA Skin Care adds a buffering agent to their acne formulations to help reduce the chance of overly drying your skin during acne treatment. If you prefer to go a completely natural route, Eminence Organics contain no parabens, chemical preservatives, or artificial fragrance.
During your first acne treatment visit with us, we will determine which course of action and products are the best fit for your particular case. We also offer trial sizes and complimentary samples if you'd like to try before you purchase an acne treatment system. Best of all, acne treatment at Pure Skin Care Pittsburgh is affordable. Most of our home care product systems that include an acne facial wash, retinol, spot treatment, non-pore-clogging moisturizer total no more than $179, for approximately 9 month's worth of product!

Pittsburgh Acne Treatment at Pure Skin Care Center - How does it work?
After evaluating your individual skin type and condition, your Esthetician may recommend of combination of diamond-tip microdermabrasion and enzyme or chemical peels. This non-invasive procedure only removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells to reveal the fresher, healthy cells beneath. Regardless of your skin’s condition, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation spots from past acne may be reduced with a minimum of three treatments spaced 2-4 weeks apart. Pore clearing solutions (such as a fruit enzyme or gentle chemical peel) are then applied to speed up cell turnover and "unplug" congested pores .
It’s like a “superficial skin polishing” – a safe, pain-free and simple method of rejuvenating skin. It is also gentle enough to suit almost any skin type.
Can Pure Skin Care Center's acne treatment help improve acne scars? Acne scars form in the dermis, or the skin directly below the surface layer. This area acts like a cushion for the skin, and when people suffer from acne, this cushion area becomes inflamed as the body works overtime to repair the wound created from bursting or removing blackheads, pimples and scaly skin. When the body works so hard to heal itself, an excess build up of collagen can occur. This collagen can stay in place, creating a pit in the skin. This scarring can be removed or decreased thanks to microdermabrasion or microchanneling technology. For deeper acne scarring, we suggest microchanneling. Microchanneling works deeper in the skin through the use of a device that creates tiny perforations in the uppermost surface of the skin. We then apply a stem cell solution that helps re-build collagen in the skin, improving and softening acne scars. Microchanneling results can be seen when receiving three treatments, approximately 4 weeks apart. For deeper acne scars, a series of six microchanneling treatments is optimal.
Can I add Microdermabrasion to my acne treatment?
Yes you can! Just let us know when scheduling your appointment so that we may schedule the correct amount of time. The cost to add-on a microdermabrasion to your facial is $30.
