Acne Treatments We Have That Can Help

IPL Acne Dual Treatment

The Intense-Pulsed Light (IPL) Acne Dual treatment destroys acne-causing bacteria and reduces existing acne-related inflammation. It treats both the underlying cause and the visible symptoms of acne by using a combination of blue and red light. The result is noticeably smoother, healthier-looking skin that you’ll be happy to show off. The real-time cooling system ensures a comfortable treatment. Usually requires 6-10 treatments, 1-2 times per week.

IPL Photo Facial

IPL Photo Facial is a powerful, virtually pain-free Intense Pulsed Light treatment delivers precise light through several layers of skin. It corrects imperfections in the skin without damaging surrounding tissue. At the same time, a real-time cooling system works to keep your skin protected from the heat so you’re comfortable throughout the treatment. The treatment Usually requires 4-6 treatments, 3-4 weeks apart and sun restriction.

Acne Chemical Peel

A clearer, healthy-looking complexion may be achieved with a chemical peel for acne or acne scars. An acne chemical peel is performed by applying a chemical solution to the skin. The solution causes the skin to blister and peel over a period of several days. As the treated skin comes off, fresh new skin replaces it. This exfoliation caused by the acne skin peel eliminates or reduces the appearance of acne blemishes and scars. Acne chemical peel treatments provide benefits in addition to acne treatment — they can improve the skin’s pigmentation and make the skin smoother.

Acne Scar Treatments We Have That Can Help

Microneedling

Microneedling can reduce the appearance of textural scarring from acne scars. Microneedling is a non-invasive therapeutic technique that pierces the skin to naturally stimulate collagen and elastin with minimal epidermal damage, while enhancing skin rejuvenation. It is typically performed with a series of 4-6 treatments spaced out 4 weeks apart. This treatment is the latest cosmetic treatment for acne scars and at the same time, it is very simple, effective and non-invasive.

Radiofrequency Fractional Ablation

Radiofrequency fractional ablation is a non-invasive treatment that can help resurface the skin to remove scars, including acne scars.
The reason why this treatment is so effective is that it combines NanoFractional radiofrequency with SmartScan technology. These two methods combine to heat the deep layers of the skin without doing any damage to the tissue in the surrounding area. The heat causes the body to begin to repair itself. It rebuilds and regenerates collagen. Since collagen is one of the building blocks to healthier skin, acne scars, discoloration and other skin issues are corrected. The fractional ablation treatment session lasts about 15 minutes. Some people require one single session, but others may need to come in for several treatment sessions if they would like the best results.

Acne Scar Chemical Peel

A clearer, healthy-looking complexion may be achieved with a chemical peel for acne or acne scars. An acne chemical peel is performed by applying a chemical solution to the skin. The solution causes the skin to blister and peel over a period of several days. As the treated skin comes off, fresh new skin replaces it. This exfoliation caused by the acne skin peel eliminates or reduces the appearance of acne blemishes and scars. Acne chemical peel treatments provide benefits in addition to acne treatment — they can improve the skin’s pigmentation and make the skin smoother.

Acne and Acne Scarring Frequently Asked Questions

Is Acne a sign of poor health?

Contrary to many people simply attributing acne to clogged pores or hormonal imbalances, acne in certain areas can actually indicate underlying health problems. This is called face mapping, an alternative-medicine practice of examining the location of acne on the face to determine health issues.

What triggers Acne breakouts?

Four main factors cause acne: Excess oil (sebum) production. Hair follicles clogged by oil and dead skin cells. Bacteria.

Does drinking water help with Acne?

In particular, it may help keep your skin hydrated, support immune function, regulate blood sugar levels, and promote natural detoxification — all of which can help fight acne. If staying properly hydrated with water doesn’t improve your acne, be sure to discuss other treatment options with your healthcare provider.

What age is acne the worst?

Acne is extremely common and can affect people of all ages. Adolescents and young adults between ages 12 and 24 tend to be the most affected group. It usually begins during the start of puberty, affecting girls earlier than boys.

What causes Acne Scars?

Acne scars are usually the result of inflamed blemishes caused by skin pores engorged with excess oil, dead skin cells and bacteria. The pore swells, causing a break in the follicle wall. Shallow lesions are usually minor and heal quickly.

How can I prevent Acne Scars?

You can’t completely prevent scarring, but these steps can minimize your chance of developing acne scars.

  1. Treat Acne as Soon as It Develops.
  2. Reduce Inflammation.
  3. Don’t Squeeze, Pop, or Pick at Pimples.
  4. Don’t Pick at Scabs.
  5. Know If You Are Prone to Scarring.
  6. See Your Doctor for Deep Breakouts or Cysts.
Are Acne Scars permament?
Acne scars are permanent textural changes and indentations that occur on the skin as a result of severe acne. The term “scarring” is not used for the temporary red and brown marks left early after acne has occurred as these marks will almost always improve without treatment.
