How to Treat Acne??

We all want to have healthy, clear skin. Nobody wants to look in the mirror and see anything close to an acne breakout. So here are 3 Straight Forward, basic ideas on home acne treatment.

Gentle Cleansing

If you are dealing with stubborn blackheads, whiteheads and pimples, it is good to try a

thorough yet gentle cleansing.

This can be anything from a natural home remedy or a mild face wash. From a skin

treatment perspective please understand that a number of the more popular “acne

specific” skin wash products are usually on the strong side for most users.  If you experience

any skin irritation or burning during this home acne treatment you should stop using and

consult a professional.

Exfoliate Regularly

Acne can also be as a result of dead skin or clogged pores, necessitating you to regularly,

but gently remove that buildup. Always remember this home acne treatment should be a gentle

process and any exfoliating process can be taken too far – so if anything you want to focus on being

thorough but gentle.

Eat Healthy

You could be doing all the above things the right way, but still not be getting any

positive results. The problem could be because you are not dealing with the root cause

of the acne, which may be found inside your body. Treating acne from inside out

requires you to eat healthy. Avoid foods that cause sugar spikes. You can choose berries,

clean protein or leafy green vegetables. Consume more wild fish and grass-fed meats.

Look for foods rich in omega-3s such as wild-caught salmon. Zinc-rich foods are also

encouraged. These foods include; pumpkin seeds, lamb, and chicken.

Avoid foods such that include gluten, wheat, sugar, hydrogenated oils, and lots of dairy.

If you are sensitive to shellfish, peanuts, soy, tree nuts and glutens, avoid them as much

as possible.


Work on establishing a healthy routine that fits your skin type and stick to it. Home acne

treatment that works for one person may not work for you at all, so you need to ensure

you have the best routine for your type of skin. And, some patience is required, so don’t

expect your acne to disappear overnight.

And, if you feel you are covering these basics and not seeing any improvement then it

might be time for you to visit a professional to see what they can do to help.

BOTOX® and Dysport are neuromodulators. These types of facial injectables target the muscles responsible for facial expressions. By temporarily blocking nerve signals, they relax these muscles, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines caused by repetitive muscle contractions.


Cosmetic fillers offer a non-surgical way to enhance facial features and restore youthful volume. Since many visible signs of aging can be traced back to volume loss, fillers can help replace what is lost to help restore a more youthful appearance. We offer the complete line of Juvederm Fillers.


Aesthetic injectables are minimally invasive cosmetic treatments that involve injecting various substances beneath the skin to achieve a range of aesthetic goals. They can target aspects of facial aging, addressing concerns like wrinkles and fine lines, loss of facial volume, & uneven skin texture.

CoolSculpting® Elite

CoolSculpting is a proven technology that is safe and effective. It is proven to work extremely well and rivals surgical results with little to no downtime. Cryolipolysis, or freezing fat; gently and effectively reduces unwanted fat by up to 25% or more per session. Freeze fat & tone muscle.

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a commonly used cosmetic procedure that utilizes concentrated beams of highly focused light to eradicate hair on various parts of the body. This method targets the hair follicles, damaging them to the extent that hair is unlikely to grow in that spot again.

Laser Resurfacing

Fractional laser resurfacing is the most effective laser treatment available for wrinkle reduction. At Dermablue, we brought the best possible technology for laser resurfacing to Asheville using the CORE CO2 fractional laser. Fractional laser resurfacing is the most effective laser treatment.
