Congested, dull skin can affect you at any age. Even if you don’t suffer from acne, you may have blackheads, whiteheads, and large pores. When your skin gets clogged and congested, it can start to appear lackluster and dull. Luckily, dull, congested skin can be restored at Skintegrity MedSpa.
What causes dull, congested skin?
Dull and congested skin can appear flat and grayish in tone. It doesn’t bounce or appear firm and glowing the way that youthful skin does. Common causes of dull, congested skin include:
- Dead skin and oil buildup: When dead skin cells accumulate on the surface of the skin, it starts to lose its radiance. Oil and dead skin can clog pores leading to congestion, large pores, and blackheads.
- Aging: As we age, our skin does not turn over as frequently, leading to dead skin buildup. The skin can take on a greyish hue and no longer appears fresh and rosy.
What is the best treatment for dull, congested skin?
Chemical Peels: A chemical peel strips away the outer dead layers of skin to reveal fresh, healthy skin beneath. The right chemical peel can also renew the skin, smoothing visible lines and pores. Because chemical peels boost collagen, your skin will become firmer. The best chemical peel for you is determined through an evaluation of your skin condition, whether clogged pores, dull skin, or both.
IPL: Many are aware of the multiple benefits that IPL can bring dull skin. It increases cellular metabolism, collagen, and skin regeneration. It also reduces uneven pigmentation and gives skin a smoother, firmer, more radiant appearance. IPL treatments are also highly beneficial as a treatment for acne or congested skin. IPL can significantly reduce non-inflammatory acne such as whiteheads and blackheads and shrink large pores.
