“More than ever before, adults are enduring the challenges of oily and acneic skin conditions. Clinical studies indicate that between 40 and 55 percent of the adult population age 20-40 are diagnosed with low grade, persistent acne and oily skin. According to the Journal of American Academy of Dermatology, 54 percent of women older than age 25 have some facial acne.”

According to Insider, Scarlett Johansson follows skin hygiene best practices like removing all her makeup before bed and cleaning her makeup brushes once a week.
Whether you suffer from adult acne or not, following hygienic practices like the ones mentioned above should be part of your everyday routine. This can include washing your pillow cases regularly, wiping down your phone screen before putting it next to your face, and not sharing beauty products.
Discover Light & Laser Technologies for Treating Acne
“I’ve always understood the connection between science and skin. I’ve been seeing a dermatologist since I was 6 years old for eczema. I really believe in exfoliating and I also use a red light for dealing with bacteria.”

SkinCenter hosts Westchester’s specially-designed acne lasers that work to decrease the size of abnormal oil glands in the skin. Additionally, laser treatment works to increase the skin’s collagen production, helping to smooth the skin’s surface and reduce acne scarring.
Our effective light and laser technologies for adult acne aren’t strictly for use on the face – they can be used on the neck, chest, back or anywhere else on the body that skin is problematic. Similar to the “red light” Kerry Washington referenced above, blue light treatment is a form of photodynamic therapy that uses the light spectrum to kill acne-causing bacteria.
The spectrum of blue light infiltrates deep within the skin’s pores and hair follicles. As such, the light kills the bacteria that causes inflammatory acne by breaking down its metabolism… Acne-causing bacteria are incredibly sensitive to the blue light spectrum—as it shuts down the bacteria’s metabolism and destroys it completely.
