METHODS WE OFFER TO COMBAT ACNE:
A facial cleans, exfoliates and nourishes the skin, promoting a clear, well-hydrated complexion, and can help your skin look younger and clean. Ideally, get a facial monthly because that’s how long it takes the skin to regenerate.
Acne blue light therapy works by targeting the bacteria that causes acne. Moderate acne that has not responded to other facial skin care treatments can be treated with this light-based therapy, which is administered over a span of several weeks. Acne blue light therapy rarely causes side effects, and does not damage skin.
Microdermabrasion can effectively remove or diminish age spots and light acne scars. The procedure is often called a “lunchtime” wrinkle treatment because it can be performed quickly in a cosmetic dermatologist’s office. In administering a microdermabrasion treatment, the physician uses a handheld instrument to spray tiny crystals onto the surface of the skin. The crystals gently exfoliate the skin’s upper layers, while light suction simultaneously removes the crystals and dead skin cells. As with many other facial rejuvenation methods, more than one microdermabrasion treatment may be necessary for wrinkle removal and to reduce undesired pigmentation.
