Acne is one of the most common dermatological problems, affecting almost everyone at some point during their life. Acne, also called “pimples” or “zits,” is an inflammatory condition of the oil glands of skin which is most commonly found on the face, neck, chest, shoulders and back. When pimples becomes inflamed and painful but no acne treatment is given, acne scarring can occur.

Chemical peels are a great option to remove dead skin cells in order to facilitate new skin growth and create brighter, smoother, healthier-looking skin. A common treatment for mild pimples is a de-toxifying facial coupled with Dermasweep, which helps in zit reduction. This will clear even deeply clogged pores, leaving skin healthy and glowing. Dermasweep combined with a superficial chemical peel will renew the skin, leaving it better able to absorb topical medications as well as products such as moisturizers, and is overall an effective zits treatment. This will help your skin to better fight off pimple outbreaks in the future as well.
Dermasweep is an innovative exfoliating treatment that combines brush tip exfoliation with topical solutions and variable pressure for a precise and thorough skin treatment. Combined with a chemical peel, this extraordinary skin treatment can completely refresh and renew pimple-prone skin.
