Dirty Little Secret

Do you want to know the dirty little secret off the field? ACNE
Don’t let inflamed back acne or red, irritated pustules outlining your teenager’s chin bring down your MVP. Get a jump-start on sports related acne with what we at Orlando Aesthetic Institute call the One-Two Punch. Remove dead skin that clogs pores with a Microderm treatment, followed by a cleansing regimen with PCA BPO 5% Cleanser, once in the morning and again before bed.
Microdermabrasion is an exfoliation and skin rejuvenation treatment that gently removes dead skin, helping to unclog pores and enhance the effectiveness of acne cleansers. Combine Microdermabrasion with a cleanser like PCA BPO 5% that contains benzoyl peroxide, phytic acid, and gluconolactone.
Benzoyl peroxide reduces oil production and inflammation. It also removes dead skin, unclogging pores and targeting the bacteria that cause acne. Phytic acid aids in exfoliation and gluconolactone is a calming, moisturizing ingredient that reduces inflammation and soothes the skin. Add an extra boost to skin cell turnover with a scrub brush, facial sponge, or Clarisonic brush.
Consistency, commitment, and patience are the keys to keeping acne in check. Put your athlete on the winning track before fall ball begins.
