We operate from the foundation of skin health and lifestyle and genetics. Without taking all of these things into consideration, your skin will not be getting the attention or treatment that it needs for optimal health and glow.
Improving teen acne starts with us. Often, teens are told that they simply need to use a commercially popular oil-control face wash and eat less greasy foods. Unfortunately, that is not the case most of the time. Yes, it is important to eat healthy and to exercise, but sometimes that is not the answer to the problem when it comes to teenage skin and acne.
Some of the most popular services that we provide to teens are Hydrafacials and PRP/Microneedling. Depending on what the issue is, we have a multitude of treatments and service options to help your teen.
The first thing we do when you bring your team to us is do a complementary consultation. One of our experts will professionally analyze your teen’s skin to start with a clear understanding of the skin type, texture and issues that your team is encountering so that we can create a solid plan with realistic timelines and goals.
Although Hydrafacials are great for all ages in all skin types, they are an especially wonderful choice for teens because teenage skin has so much active bacteria and acne on their faces, chest, back, and even buttocks. This is even more acutely true and important for those who play sports or are active and athletic, and also for girls who wear make up because it clogs up their pores.
Teenage girls often wear extra foundation to cover up breakouts, which just proliferates the breakouts. A hydrafacial will clean off the bacteria, and clean out the pores. This actually fixes the problem instead of just masking it.
A hydrafacial is a purifying facial treatment that has specific formulations to treat skin issues that are being affected by hormonal shifts, overproduction of oil, and clogged pores. As a matter fact, hydrafacial is the only hydradermabrasion procedure that provides deep cleansing, exfoliation, hydration, extraction, and antioxidant protection, all while being pain-free with no downtime.
In the past, extractions were a very painful process that left the skin swollen and red for hours or a full day. With the hydrafacial, extractions are painless and actually feel quite refreshing. Technology is a wonderful thing, and people are no longer afraid to get extractions because the hydrafacial device has taken the pain out of extractions.
For more serious issues like acne scarring, pockmarks, rosacea, perpetually dry chafing skin, enlarged pores, and skin pigmentation issues. Microneedling and PRP are safe for all ages, so depending on your teen’s skin condition and epidermal issues, we may recommend microneedling and/or PRP. However, this process can be uncomfortable so we have a discussion with the teen and the parent before this procedure is ever done or considered.
Before a microneedling session, we will put a numbing cream on the skin, so there’s not actually pain, there is simply a level of discomfort. Many people find the first time they received microneedling it is most uncomfortable around the brow bone, but any following sessions are much more pleasant and easy. It seems the first time is always the most uncomfortable simply because of the unexpected.
‘Backne’ is slang term for acne on the back, just like ‘buttne’ is it slang for acne on the butt. As embarrassing as they are for teens to experience, they are incredibly common, and they are fixable. At the Erasing Time, we find solutions to problems, no matter how embarrassing they may be to the individual.
