Clear teenage skin
27 Jun 2012
When you are a teenager, looks are very important. Spots, pimples, moles, acne and other skin conditions can make you feel very self-conscious and a clear, blemish-free complexion can make you feel so much more confident.
Browsing the aisles at the chemist can be so confusing with so many different lotions, serums and products on the shelves, so why not consider a more permanent solution such as microdermabrasion or mole removal? Moles can, at the least be unsightly, and at the worst be a risk to your health and you should always get a mole that seems to have changed appearance checked out. Even if your mole is not harmful, you might want to have it removed for cosmetic reasons.
If you do have acne scars, you might be scared that the scarring is permanent. Don't worry; it is easily taken care of. There is a wide range of treatments available for acne scarring, such as skin peels and chemical peels which use materials designed to force the skin to shed its surface cells. Microdermabrasion is another treatment in the use of acne scarring and is also useful for treating acne itself as well as the scars. Laser treatments are also available which will remove the surface cells but won't cause damage to your healthy skin cells.
Microdermabrasion is not as scary as it sounds. Put simply, it is like plastic surgery without the surgery. There is not anything injected into your skin, either. Microdermabrasion works with microcrystals which are hard enough to rub away unwanted, tired skin, but small enough not to do any damage. You won't even feel any discomfort or pain. Microdermabrasion is suitable for a wide range of skin conditions and damage, including wrinkles, sun damage and acne scars.
