Acne is the term used to describe blackheads, whiteheads, pimples or any clogged pores that occur on the face or body. Most acne occurs during the adolescent years, but it can sometimes occur before or even after the teenage years.
Acne can often play a detrimental effect in one’s self-esteem because it hides the natural beauty of a person’s facial features. Normally, minor acne will come and go on its own, recurring more frequently during the years of adolescence and becoming less thereafter. Occasionally, acne can continue to cause problems for a person later in life. More severe cases of acne can lead to more serious, permanent scarring.
Photodynamic Therapy with AFT Intense Pulsed Light Treatments
We offer photo dynamic therapy activated with Intense Pulsed Light, which is extremely effective in reducing moderate acne due to hormonal imbalances, overactive sebaceous glands, and/or bacteria in teens and adults. This treatment involves the application of Levulanic acid (this is pain free), a period of rest, and then a session of intense pulsed light. The Levulanic acid (a safe acid naturally produced by the body) activates the bacteria to make it susceptible to light therapy and shrinks sebaceous glands so less oil and sebum is produced.
Actinage Acne Peel
Actinage, the newest peel on the market, is revolutionizing the treatment of acne. This superficial peel combines Salicylic, Mandelic and Azelaic acids with Retinol for the treatment of oily and blemish prone skin. Actinage helps to reduce oil production and control acne while giving the skin a smoother texture and a healthy glow. The peel ingredients have anti-aging, anti-bacterial, melanin suppressing and skin brightening properties. The treatment begins in the office and is supplemented by comprehensive home care products that amplify and extend the peel benefits.
Automated Micro-Needling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for treating the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars and improvement of the skin’s overall appearance. The micro-needling treatment creates controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to naturally produce collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in improvement of the appearance of softer wrinkles. Automated micro-needling also creates superficial micro-channels which can be used with topical gels, creams and serums to help improve the appearance of the epidermal layer of the skin. This treatment is safe on any skin type, has a short treatment time, and has minimal discomfort with virtually no downtime.
