Acne Treatments

 

 

Acne

 

Acne is the term for plugged pores, or blackheads and whiteheads, pimples and deeper lumps called cysts or nodules.  This common skin condition occurs when bacteria break down the oils in the skin.  Irritating substances are produced that activate the body’s immune system to produce inflammation and redness.

 

Acne mainly affects teenagers, but it often occurs in adults aged 20, 30 and even 40 or older.  Acne can be upsetting and disfiguring and can lead to scarring.

 

Fortunately, virtually every case of acne can be resolved. At glow aesthetic medicine, many treatments are available that are very effective at clearing up acne.  Prescription topical medications such as topical antibiotics, Retin A and benzoyl peroxide are available.  We also offer Obagi Clenziderm Skincare which has proven results.

 

Useful Tips:

 

Wash your face twice daily with a gentle skin cleanser to prevent oil build-up.

Do not scrub your face with a harsh washcloth or sponge.  Scrubbing may actually make it worse by irritating the skin. Try gentle cleansing with your hands.

 

Topical astringents can be used to remove excess oil after cleansing.

 

Don’t squeeze, scratch, or pick the lesions.  This can leave tiny, permanent scars on your face.

 

Acne scarring has traditionally been difficult to treat.  New technologies and cosmetic breakthroughs have had successful results in improving the appearance of acne scars.  Procedures such as Fractional Laser Resufacing, Microdermabrasion and Vibraderm can smooth unwanted scars with easy, non-surgical treatments that have no downtime.
