Unsightly blackheads, enlarged pores, and acne troubles will all lead to even more skin care woes in 2018. Why not vow to make this the year to finally say goodbye to blackheads, and welcome in clear, smooth skin?

Depending on one’s skin care needs, there are two potential routes to smoother, healthier-looking skin: intense pulsed light (IPL) acne treatments or radio frequency-based skin resurfacing treatments. For those searching for an acne fix, IPL treatments, using a combination of red and blue light, work to heal skin inflammation while simultaneously killing off acne-causing bacteria deep in the pores.

Alternatively, NanoFractional Radio Frequency treatments smoothen skin’s texture, making them the better fit for those with fewer breakouts but more visible pores. These treatments create tiny microdermal wounds that propel the skin’s natural healing process and kickstart collagen production for younger-looking skin. Following a treatment plan using either IPL acne treatments or skin resurfacing treatments will lead to glowing, healthier-looking skin well before the ball drops for 2019.
