When a pimple pops up on the morning of your big presentation, it is important to have the best zit zapping tips up your sleeve! Dr. Schweiger notes that, “Acne is not solved overnight, meaning that it can take weeks for prescription medications to clear acne. However, there are a few tricks to keep in mind that will get rid of your pimple quickly.”
Best Zit Zapping Tips:
- Pick up the phone! Call the Clear Clinic first thing in the morning to schedule a quick visit for a cortisone injection. This tiny injection of an anti-inflammatory medication will flatten out most pimples within 24 hours. The best part is that there is no downtime, so you can stop by the Clear Clinic on your way to work or over your lunch hour.
- Dab on salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide – If you don’t have the Home Cortisone Shot at home, try dabbing a bit of salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide directly onto the pimple. Both medications help to decrease active acne.
- Schedule an Isolaz treatment at the Clear Clinic – The in-office Isolaz laser acne treatment combines a broad-spectrum antibacterial light with a gentle vacuum to clean out the pores. The result is a decrease in both active acne and future breakouts with no downtime.
