Acne and Blemishes

We offer the latest medical treatments and products for acne therapy. Acne is a common skin condition that affects people of all ages in varying degrees. Our professional guidance for treating adult hormonal acne, as well as teen acne is supported by a customized progressive treatment plan. Our goal is to work with you to improve your appearance and self-esteem. The combination of naturally occurring oils and dead skin cells clog the pores or hair follicles in your face, chest, back and shoulder area. This is not a condition you need to live with or allow it to run its course. Within our practice we begin with a manageable home care protocol to attack the oil and bacteria. Options like our Blu Light Therapy, Acne Peels, Retinoids provide a long-term care method for treating mild to moderate acne. Oral Therapy, like spironolactone is available for more severe acne.

Causes of Acne

Unfortunately, acne and oily skin go hand and hand as it’s the oils on top of the skin that smothers the bacteria into the pores causing small mini infections called a pimple. The clogged pores continue to brew with bacteria growing and growing until the skin is appropriate exfoliated and the pores are opened allowing the pimple to release its infected contents. But pimples left on the face for extended time can leave brown marks as well as red angry scarring.

Dual Acne Treatments

Dual type of treatments is necessary to help with stubborn acne. A home care of ZO Skin Health Products by Dr. Zein Obagi are a must in which a daily use of oil control and exfoliating skin products are used daily. Acne unfortunately is very effected by the continual release of hormones and requires daily use of skin products to combat the bombardment of these hormones. Teenagers get acne the worst due to this outpouring of hormones in their early development which can last into their 20’s. If teenage acne is not taken care of early, the acne scarring becomes a problem for life. 

Acne Boot Camp 

We offer an acne boot camp that consists of the home skin care program with Dr. Obagi’s skin products, as well as in office treatments with Blu Light Therapy, glycolic and salicylic peels, and HydraFacials that offer incredible cleansing of the face. The key behind all these treatments is to control the oil on the face as well as keeping the skin exfoliating every day to keep the pores from clogging.  For teenagers who don’t want to do a lot of home care we have simple solutions such as using glycolic/salicylic pads that they can carry in their back packs and use throughout the day or after sport activities.

Combining Microneedling with PRP, TCA Peel and Filler Treatments for Acne Scarring

Varying degree of acne scars can be significantly improved with a series of Microneedling, stimulating new collagen for a healthier, smoother appearance. A filler offers additional smoothing and plumping into deep pitted scars with indentations in surrounding area. 

For acne scarring, MicroNeedling with PRP truly helps stimulate the collage and elastin under the scarring to plump out the skin. In addition, strong TCA Peels are also incredibly important to help tighten and reduce the pores of the face that reduces the scarring effect. (Show Bliss Martin here). And Indian Patient The patient below has been actively treated for both her active acne as well as her acne scarring with the combination of ZO Skin Health Products and both MicroNeedling with PRP and TCA Peels.
