No matter what you do, are you still struggling to get rid of your acne? If you have been struggling with over-the-counter acne remedies for months or more without much success, you may consider professional acne treatments. Medical acne treatments offer the possibility of finally achieving acne-free skin. Since each individual has a different skin type, there is no one-size-fits-all acne treatment. However, during a consultation with our specialist, your skin will be examined and some tests may be done to help determine the best acne treatment for your skin issues.
One option for professional acne treatment is a chemical peel. Chemical peels are a way to remove the dead skin and are a good treatment for some kinds of acne. By removing dead and old skin cells, your pores will unclog and your acne will lessen. Chemical peels have been used for years to lessen the appearance of facial scars, sun damage and fine lines. They also improve the overall appearance of your skin making it look smooth, even and more youthful-looking as the old skin cells are replaced by new, healthy ones.
If a chemical peel is the best option for your acne, our specialist will apply a mild chemical solution to the affected area. The chemical unclogs pores, removes dead skin cells, whiteheads, and blackheads. When the dead skin is removed, new skin growth is generated. It may take several treatments to get the best results.
Micro-needling can also help patients who are constantly dealing with acne issues, such as scarring. This treatment involves gently rolling over the surface of the skin with a specialized pen-like device that has tiny, sterile needles at the tip. This creates microchannels. These microchannels work to stimulate the healing process as well as collagen production. When the healing process begins, new cells will emerge and replace old, damaged ones that can clog the skin and cause acne. Micro-needling can also help to plump the fullness of your skin as new collagen is created. Collagen is a protein within our skin that is responsible for its strength and structure.
