Understanding the cause of your acne is integral to properly treating it. Presentations of acne vary and a detailed history is necessary.
The initial evaluation focuses on skin examination, review of current and past treatments and products. Sometimes laboratory tests are needed to aid in understanding the underlying cause.
We pride ourselves on creating personalized skin care regimens with detail placed on your concerns and schedules. An individualized treatment regimen is developed and we demonstrate how and when to apply the recommended serums and creams. Although targeted topical medicines are the mainstay for acne control, specific oral therapies may be necessary to control inflammation.
We utilize all available technology in jumpstarting your best skin. Chemical peels and microdermabrasion address the occlusion or “plugging” of the pores and pigmentation from prior acne and rosacea lesions. Laser and light treatments such as V-Beam (pulsed dye laser), intense pulsed light (IPL), and photodynamic therapy (PDT) treat specific bacteria of the sebaceous gland, dysfunctional and hyperactive blood vessels, and decrease inflammation. Local injections into acne spots decrease inflammation and minimize scarring.
