Acnelan peel: The clinical treatment for acne
If you suffer from acne or other skin conditions, you may be considering an Acnelan peel. Acnelan is a medical-grade facial treatment that is designed to treat acne, reduce inflammation, and promote healthier skin. So, what is Acnelan, how does it work, and what can you expect from the treatment process?
What is Acnelan?
An Acnelan peel is a professional facial treatment that is performed by a trained clinician. It is a three-step process that includes deep cleansing of the skin, application of a peel, and a final step of application of a facial mask.
The peel used in the Acnelan treatment contains a combination of salicylic acid, mandelic acid, and azelaic acid. These ingredients work together to exfoliate dead skin cells, unclog pores, reduce inflammation, and kill acne-causing bacteria.
The final step of the Acnelan treatment involves the application of a facial mask that contains anti-inflammatory and antibacterial agents. This step helps to soothe the skin and promote healing.
How does Acnelan work?
Acnelan treatment works by targeting the root causes of acne and related skin conditions. The combination of salicylic acid, mandelic acid, and azelaic acid in the peel helps to unclog pores and exfoliate dead skin cells, which are two common causes of acne.
The ingredients in the peel also help to reduce inflammation and kill acne-causing bacteria, which can help to prevent new breakouts from forming. The final step of the treatment helps to soothe the skin and promote healing.
What can I expect from an Acnelan peel?
The Acnelan treatment process typically takes between 60 and 90 minutes to complete. The first step of the process involves deep cleansing of the skin to remove any dirt, oil, and makeup.
The second step involves the application of the peel to the skin. The peel is left on the skin for a period of time, typically between 5 and 10 minutes, depending on the severity of your skin condition.
After the peel is removed, the final step of the process involves the application of a facial mask. The mask is left on the skin for a period of time, typically between 10 and 15 minutes, to soothe the skin and promote healing.
After the treatment is complete, your skin may be red and sensitive for a few hours. You should avoid exposure to the sun and use a high-quality sunscreen to protect your skin.
Is Acnelan right for me?
Acnelan treatment may be a good option for you if you suffer from acne or related skin conditions. However, it is important to consult with a qualified dermal clinician to determine if the treatment is right for your skin condition.
If you have sensitive skin or are allergic to any of the ingredients in the Acnelan treatment, you may not be a good candidate for the treatment. Additionally, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should avoid the treatment.
