Acne Treatments

Acne is one of the most common skin issues that people combat. Although we typically think of acne as a problem that is only associated with teenagers, it can affect those of all ages and skin types. If you’re struggling to control your acne, you’re not the only one! Many remedies work to combat breakouts and rejuvenate the skin. We’ve outlined a few of our in-office treatments that improve the skin and help get rid of acne.

Chemical Peels

For blemishes such as acne, a chemical peel is an effective treatment that operates similarly to a face mask. Like an exfoliate, this treatment removes dead skin cells to promote the growth of new ones. This process works to generate fresh, healthy skin. Not only are peels used to help control acne, but they can also aid in correcting acne scars and large pores. Patients typically receive multiple peels in a series requiring 3 or 4 sessions. However, results such as brightened pigment and smoother texture are noticeable soon after the first treatment. The depth of the peels ranges depending on the type of peel and the desired outcome. A superficial peel is used for those with surface-level acne, while those with more severe blemishes may opt for a medium or deep cleansing peel.

Deep Pore Cleansing

The best way to combat acne is with a regular facial cleansing routine. This means taking the proper steps to keep your skin clean by using products that are best suited for your skin. While washing and moisturizing your face every day is beneficial to your skin’s health, sometimes at-home cleansers don’t always remove all unwanted elements. A deep pore cleansing goes beyond the surface of the face and works to clean and improve the skin’s underlying layers.

This treatment extracts blackheads, clogged pores, dirt, and other impurities that lie deep under the skin’s surface. The benefits of this treatment extend past just acne and include boosting elasticity, hydration, and rejuvenation. 

Blackhead Removal

Blackhead removals are great for those who suffer from acne. Although this treatment is useful for those of all ages, a blackhead removal is especially helpful for teenagers and other young adults who have regular breakouts. Similar to a deep pore cleanse, blackhead removals fight acne by extracting it from its roots. This process, performed by dermatologists, rids the skin of blackheads that are underneath the surface with the proper tools. In turn, this treatment works to diminish the chances of your acne returning. 

Each person’s skin is different, and therefore, everyone needs their individualized skin care treatments that work for them. These acne treatments are not a one size fits all and won’t cure the skin of blemishes. However, they are helpful for those struggling with acne and looking to refresh and cleanse the skin. Even if you don’t have acne, these treatments’ results are still beneficial for those looking to hydrate the skin and give it a natural glow.
