Very often hormonal disorders are accompanied by the appearance of acne (blackheads), the residual result of which is persistent red spots. Heat treatments (for example, paraffin therapy), as well as therapeutic masks that have an anti-inflammatory effect, can get rid of red spots from acne.
The therapeutic effect is based on the formation of a thin film from the applied molten paraffin, which, when solidified, protects the skin from the effects of other layers of paraffin heated to higher temperatures. As a result, the effect on the diseased skin areas becomes more prolonged and promotes the resorption of the infiltrate after acne. After the course of treatment, blood and lymph flow improves, the ducts of the sweat and sebaceous glands expand, tissue metabolism increases, and the skin regenerates faster.
Before starting the procedure, oily skin is preliminarily wiped with cotton wool moistened with a mixture of alcohol and ether. Dry skin is lubricated with vegetable oil (refined). The procedure is performed in the supine position. Cover your hair, neck and eyelids.
Next, the paraffin, heated to 50-52 ° C in a water bath, is applied to the face (except for the eyes, nostrils and mouth) with a flat brush in 2-3 layers successively.
On top of the paraffin mask, a transparent oilcloth with slits for the eyes, nose and mouth is applied, then a layer of cotton wool is applied and the face is bandaged or covered with a towel for 20-30 minutes.
The paraffin is removed with a spatula.
Next, the skin is wiped with lotion and lubricated with a nourishing cream.
The course of treatment is prescribed every other day up to 20 sessions and lasting from 30 to 60 minutes. The optimal time for paraffin therapy is two hours before bedtime. If paraffin therapy is carried out in a cosmetology room, then after the procedure it is necessary to rest for more than 30 minutes, and not to expose the skin to temperature changes.
Anti-inflammatory masks, either ready-made cosmetic masks, or from the juice of natural products (tomato juice, raw potato, apple) can also get rid of red spots from acne. They are applied to the face for up to 15 minutes, then washed off with warm water.
In addition to external treatment, it is necessary to eliminate the cause of acne formation, which subsequently leave red spots.
