4 Dermatology Treatments for Better Looking Skin Without Makeup

Wearing makeup all the time can be exhausting, but how can you gain the confidence you need to go makeup-free? Here are a few dermatology treatments that could help you out.


Microdermabrasion is an excellent treatment if you’re aiming to minimize the appearance of age spots, wrinkles, and acne scars. This treatment can be administered on the face, neck, hands, and body using a fine-tipped instrument or by applying a fine mist of abrasive crystals to the treatment area. This abrasion helps exfoliate the skin and encourages new skin cell growth. One of the biggest benefits of this treatment is its efficiency. It is a simple outpatient procedure with virtually no recovery time. That being said, it may require multiple, ongoing treatments to achieve the results you’re looking for.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels often get a bad rap in movies and television. The truth is that chemical peels, when administered by your dermatologist or esthetician, are an excellent way to tighten, tone, and brighten up your skin. Multiple treatments may even help reduce the appearance of mild to moderate acne scars and age spots on the face. Chemical peels can also help correct irregularities in skin texture. This means they’re effective at treating wrinkles, fine lines, and even age spots. There are also different intensities of chemical peels. So if you’re looking for a gentler treatment, you don’t necessarily have to rule chemical peels out! We’re happy to help you learn more about cosmetic dermatology procedures like this one.

Blue Light Therapy

This type of skin treatment is most effective at treating acne. Blue light therapy works by eliminating acne-causing bacteria that live on the surface of the skin. It is a non-invasive treatment that can be done in a short session at your dermatologist’s office. In addition, blue light therapy is performed in a controlled environment, which means there will be no harm to your skin. One of the biggest benefits to this treatment is that there are no side effects. If you’re struggling with mild to moderate acne, blue light therapy could be helpful in eliminating breakouts and restoring your confidence in your skin. This is another treatment that will require recurring sessions, so keep that in mind if you’re considering this route.


Not to be confused with dermabrasion, dermaplaning is another treatment that can help promote smooth, glowing skin. In this treatment, your dermatologist will use a small, sharp razor to scrape vellus hairs and dead skin off of your face. This method exfoliates the skin and removes unwanted hair, in most cases. Not only does this encourage a glowing complexion, it can help in the application of makeup, as well. It is an especially useful treatment if one of the sources of your skin insecurity is unwanted facial hair.
