How to Treat Acne without Spending Another Dollar on Low Quality Skincare

Rough, bumpy, red skin keeping you up at night? 

Feeling uncomfortable in your skin is the worst. It feels like everyone is focusing on your acne and stops you from doing the things you love. 

But clear, glowing skin is within reach. 

If you’ve been wondering how to stop and prevent acne, when nothing works this is for you. Find out why Dermapen Treatments for acne are so effective and the key products that can keep your skin looking and feeling beautifully clear.  

Lifestyle Factors 

There’s nothing worse than someone who’s never had to deal with acne telling you to “just wash your skin”. 

But if you have problematic skin, there are a few clear skin tips that give your skin the best chance to recuperate while undergoing a Dermapen Treatment for acne. Otherwise, you could undo all your hard work! 

  • Only touch your face if you’ve cleaned your hands thoroughly to avoid the spread of harmful microorganisms 
  • Keep your glasses and phone (or anything else that touches your face) really clean  
  • Wear loose clothing and hats made from breathable fabrics  
  • Use natural cotton or silk pillow cases and change regularly, even daily. 
  • Wash your hair regularly using non-oily products  
  • Try to avoid activities that make you sweat profusely and stay out of the sun! 
  • Always cleanse your face morning and night and remove all traces of makeup  
  • Choose non-irritating shaving foam and moisten hair before your shave—don’t press hard when you shave – Try Dp Dermaceuticals CLR FOAM CLEANSER for gentle shaving.
  • As hard as it can be, try to avoid squeezing or picking your pimples, as this can lead to scarring and pigmentation 
  • Support your skin with products that contain acne-busting actives like Retinoids, Niacinamide, and Salicylic Acid 

A Note on Acne Medication 

If your acne is severe, you may need to consult with your doctor or physician to determine an appropriate acne treatment plan that may include: 

  • Oral medications 
    • Antibiotics 
    • Contraceptives 
    • Isotretinoin (Vitamin A) 
  • Topical medication 
    • Prescription-strength retinoids
    • Antibiotics 
    • Azelaic Acid 

Dermapen Treatments for Acne 

However, there are also plenty of non-medication therapies available to help keep your skin clear.  

Your Authorised Treatment Provider can help tailor a program to target your acne and restore balance to your skin.  

Dermapen Treatments for acne include a combination of: 

  • Facials/face masks
  • Microneedling
  • Chemical peels
  • L.E.D. light therapy
  • Skincare products

This is what you can expect at each stage. 

Facials/Face Masks

During a Dp Dermaceuticals Facial, your Authorised Treatment Provider will apply a selection of acne-fighting products. 

Regular clarifying masks or exfoliants are recommended 2-3 times a week.  MICRO DERM EXFOLIANT removes dulling residue and dead skin cells for a brightened, cleaner complexion. The bamboo extract is rich in silica, and leaves skin feeling purified and velvety smooth. 

The relaxing and nourishing routine may also include hydrating BRITE LITE 3D SCULPTURAL MASK enriched with HylaFuse™ Hyaluronic Acid and Superoxide Dismutase (a naturally occurring enzyme). After your masks, a specially selected combination of Dp Dermaceuticals for problematic skin will be applied.

If you haven’t tried microneedling yet, it could be the thing you look back on and wish you got it done years ago. When paired with the appropriate Dp Dermaceuticals Meso-Glide (CLR LOTION or MG-CLR) your Authorised Treatment Provider can microneedle your active acne with the Dermapen 4 device. 

By penetrating the deeper layers of the skin with ultra-fine and -sharp needles, the body’s natural healing response is triggered. Your skin is oxygenated. Lymphatic drainage is activated.  

The result? Smooth, clear, pimple-free skin. 

If you’ve tried every acne treatment and nothing’s worked, you might find it hard to believe this could be the solution. Check out Sami’s incredible results to see what’s possible—she too had felt like she’d tried everything. 

Chemical Peels

Your Authorised Treatment Provider may apply either of the two available ÜBER PEELS after your procedure or as standalone acne therapy. 

ÜBER PRO is a professional peel that enhances microneedling procedures. The specific blend of treatment actives helps increase cellular turnover while addressing the signs of hyperpigmentation, milia, and acne (and others!). As well as Mandelic, Lactic, Pyruvic, Ferulic and Kojic Acids, it also contains potent Retinaldehyde, Copper Peptides, Niacinamide and Hyaluronic Acid.  

It can be applied immediately following a Dermapen 4 microneedling procedure, as part of a Dp Dermaceuticals facial or as a standalone peel for acne. 

UBER MD is a professional, medical-strength peel designed to help “fill” atrophic acne scars. It contains potent exfoliants and collagen rebuilders such as Trichloroatic Acid, Salicylic Acid, Retinaldehyde, Pyruvic Acid and Phenol. It’s applied to the spot with a special stick to “frost” the depression point. 

L.E.D. Light Therapy 

l.e.d. facial benefits

The anti-inflammatory effect of L.E.D. speeds up the healing process after a microneedling procedure. This is what makes it such an ideal complement to your Dermapen Treatment for acne. You can also use the Dermapen HOME between professional procedures together with the L.E.D. therapy to boost your results and get smoother skin faster.
