Acne

Acne vulgaris is a disorder of the oil glands in the skin that results in comedones (blackheads and whiteheads), pustules, and cysts. It usually occurs on the face, neck, chest, back, shoulders, and upper arms. Acne is the most common skin disorder in the United States, with nearly 85% of the population having acne at some point in their lives. Acne usually begins during puberty, but it can affect any age. Causes of acne include heredity, hormones, and stress.

 Acne/Acne Scarring Preferred Treatments

MicrodermabrasionMicrodermabrasion is a method of “exfoliating” away the skin’s surface to remove unwanted blackheads, whiteheads, fine scars, and wrinkles. This encourages new skin growth that is more “vibrant, healthy and youthful.”

Pixel: The Next Generation in Laser Resurfacing - Pixel is the latest technological advancement in skin resurfacing. Skin resurfacing has been available for more than 20 years, but has gone through a revolution in the last two years. Previously, resurfacing lasers were very aggressive, requiring weeks of recovery time. Despite this, these lasers brought about dramatic results, taking years off the face by reducing wrinkles, pigment, scars and rough texture, leading to smoother, tighter, younger skin. With the advent of the Pixel, these same results can be achieved with a minimal amount of recovery time, typically 3-5 days.

Chemical Peels - Used to treat rough or unevenly pigmented facial skin … and experience dramatic long lasting results! Chemical peels are very effective in improving and smoothing those damaged outer skin layers. Chemical peeling is not a substitute for erbium laser peels or a facelift, and it will not stop or reverse the aging process – but it can restore a more youthful glow to your skin and remove those unwanted fine lines and blemishes.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is an Acne Microdermabrasion treatment like?
This is a skin “resurfacing” treatment to remove dead cells and debris. This process is an effective deep “exfoliation” of the skin and is done using a hand-held piece close to the skin, with minute crystals being gently and precisely delivered to the surface of the skin. The crystals and debris are vacuumed off during this process.

How long does a Microdermabrasion treatment take and does it hurt?
Treatments usually last from 10-30 minutes depending on the area being treated and the aggressiveness of the treatment. Microdermabrasion is not a painful procedure.

What kind of results can I expect after a treatment?
Again, depending on the area being treated and the aggressiveness – you may experience some flushing, redness or some mild peeling for about 24 hours following treatment. This is easily controlled with products specially tailored to your condition.

How does Microdermabrasion improve acne?
By deep cleansing the clogged pores and increasing blood flow – which oxygenates the cells – the dead, unhealthy skin is exfoliated and along with blemishes and fine scars. This promotes new cell growth and collagen networking to improve the skin’s appearance and texture.

How many treatments are needed?
Your individual treatment plan will be tailored to your needs and goals. Improvement is usually noticed after the very first treatment! The results are cumulative – so a series of treatments are designed with this in mind.

Microdermabrasion is quick and easy and is designed for busy people. It’s the right choice for people with acne problems who don’t have time for “recovery” from more invasive treatments. It is a safe, effective acne treatment! Schedule YOURS today!
