Growing up with pimples might’ve been a blow to your self-esteem, but research shows that your bad experience might have an upside.
A study in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology found that youth acne sufferers experienced fewer wrinkles and other signs of aging later in life. Researchers attribute their findings to longer telomeres (protective caps at the ends of chromosomes that fight skin deterioration) and the skin’s natural oil production.
Premature Skin Aging
To combat premature aging, get enough sleep and eat healthy, and remember to wear sunscreen and seek shade between 10 am and 2 pm.
Get Rid of Acne Scars for Good
The American Academy of Dermatology reports that 40% of acne sufferers will have acne scarring by their mid-teens.
But you don’t have to live with acne scars anymore! The Picosure laser is an FDA-approved treatment for acne scars.
The procedure works by “roughing up” the surface layers of the skin, which forces the body to produce elastin and collagen. New cells then grow, which “fills in” the rough and scarred skin. Acne scar treatment sessions are short, and there’s minimal, if any, downtime after a procedure.
And the Picosure laser treatment isn’t just for acne scars! It can also reduce the appearance of skin discolorations like age spots and sun damage.
