Best Treatments for Acne in Your 40’s

Jun 10, 2020 | Skin Care


Anyone who went through the trials and tribulation of acne as a teenager certainly never wants to go through that again. However, while it might seem so unfair, many women in their 40s do find themselves having to deal with acne again. The reason for this is that acne is not just a rite of puberty. Instead, it can be related to fluctuating hormones, which women begin to experience in their 40s and 50s.

What worked when you were in your teens for acne is likely not to work for you now. Here are the best acne treatments we recommend for women in their 40s.

Acne Light Treatment (BLU-U)

Acne Light Treatment (BLU-U) is one of the latest advancements in technology for treating light to moderate acne in both adults and teenagers. It is safe, non-invasive, and provides no discomfort. Using a non-laser, visible blue light device, we target the bacteria in oil glands to help shut down acne production. When combined with Photodynamic Therapy Acne Treatment with Levulan, the effects of this treatment can last for a lifetime for adults.
