Candidates for Acne Treatment

Patients may consider professional treatment for acne or acne scarring if they suffer from concerns such as severe acne, cystic acne, and acne scarring that have not responded to at-home remedies. The specific treatments chosen will depend on factors that include your skin type and the severity of your acne.

Acne and Acne Scar Treatment

Your acne treatment may include a series of facials, advanced light therapies, and medications. These therapies are effective at targeting causes of acne like bacteria, excess oil production, hyperkeratosis (excess growth of skin cells), and inflammation. Additionally, these procedures can address scarring by stimulating the body’s natural healing process, triggering cellular renewal and collagen production.

Fotona for Acne Treatment

Fotona can be used to treat both active acne and acne scarring. The powerful Nd:YAG laser penetrates the skin to address overactive oil glands, which can reduce the severity of inflammation. The Er:YAG laser can be used to resurface the skin and encourage collagen production, which can help improve the appearance of acne scars.

BLU-U® Light Therapy

BLU-U® light therapy is a treatment that uses a photosensitive drug and a light source to activate it. Exposure of the photosensitive drug to the light produces by-products that target the bacteria responsible for acne breakouts.

Professional Grade Facials

While results may vary, clinical studies have shown that professional facials are very effective at targeting the conditions that cause breakouts. Other treatments, such as microdermabrasion or a chemical peel, can also prevent breakouts and help eliminate acne by clearing away dead skin cells and other debris notorious for clogging pores and causing breakouts.

Additionally, acne facials use specialized ingredients that slow down the production of the oil in your skin. Facials may also help treat scarring by triggering collagen production and cellular renewal.

Venus Viva™

Venus Viva™ is safe for all skin types and uses revolutionary NanoFractional radiofrequency (RF) and SmartScan™ technology. Venus Viva™ delivers superior results through a selective dermal heating process. Tiny micro-pins deliver RF energy to the dermis, generating heat and encouraging the production of collagen.

Acne Medication

Dr. Tchelebi can prescribe medication and similar products for patients who may benefit from daily home care using a topical or systemic acne medication.

Medication is often used in conjunction with other treatments such as light therapy. Treatment plans that incorporate medication can be customized after an in-depth consultation.

Recovery After Acne Treatment

Most acne treatments require little to no downtime. Many patients are able to undergo their procedure during a lunch break. A series or combination of treatments may be recommended, depending on your skin and the severity of your condition.
