Acne Blemish Cure-All - Fact or Fiction?

Apr 19, 2008
Everyone gets an occasional acne blemish now and then, but what a person does to treat acne when you get this blemish can have a significant effect on the duration a pimple sticks around, and how visible it is to other people. Normally, you will have to permit an acne blemish to run its course, but you have the ability to rush the process and keep from making the blemish any worse.

Skin Care

Just because you have acquired an acne blemish does not mean your efforts for your skin care have failed or you should discontinue your routine. A good skin care routine help to keep your skin clean without having it irritated. While the right type of skin care will help you to prevent acne breakouts in the future, do not become disheartened when the periodic blemish turns up. They are absolutely normal.

When you find an acne blemish, thinking about squeezing it should not be your first option. Squeezing a pimple at first sight, in the hopes of eradicating it prior to anyone else can seeing it, normally makes the situation worse. If a pimple has formed a head, though, then it should be squeezed and the pressure relieved so that it can heal.

Nevertheless, squeezing acne prior to it being ready is not good for your skin and is a poor method to treat acne. When it will not pop, the majority of people continue to pick and pinch, which bursts the capillaries (tiny blood vessels) just beneath the surface of the skin. This basically forms a small bruise on your face that is probably going to be very visible even after the pimple itself has eventually healed.

Dealing with a Pimple

Once you get an acne blemish, there are still options for you to treat acne, however some of them can be costly. One new type of product, called the Zeno acne-clearing device, asserts it can eliminate the majority of pimples within twenty four hours of use. It functions by concentrating a specific amount of heat on to the pimple, which in turn destroys the bacteria inducing the blemish.

Some people contend that it works perfectly for them, while other people say it has almost no effect on their acne. As luck would have it, the company makes available a money-back guarantee if you are not happy. The sole disadvantage for people who find Zeno efficacious is that it requires throwaway tips to work, which some people say are fairly pricey depending on how many pimples there are that needs to be treated.

Acne And The Use of Light

Another type of product that is used to treat existing pimples is a pen that applies assorted frequencies of concentrated light. It has been acknowledged for a time that being exposed to sunlight helps your skin to fight acne, but scientists have concluded that the two particular frequency ranges that are most useful appear to us in the form of blue and red light.

The blue light functions to kill the bacterium that is the cause to acne, while the red light induces the healing action of your skin. Dermatologists have employed red and blue light treatment for quite sometime now, but the light pens that are presently available are entirely portable and do not call for any replacement tips. Nevertheless, like Zeno, some people report astonishing results from using a light pen while others see utterly no results at all.

Regardless, fight the desire to pop the acne blemish before it is ready. Incessantly washing or utilizing medication could only irritate the blemish even further, and the result is more of a mess than you began with. The majority of methods, such as Zeno or light pens, only stand a chance of working after the acne blemish has appeared, and even then, these methods might not work for some people. Numerous people decide that it is simply best to let nature run its course.
