Acne can greatly affect your self-esteem and confidence. It can also be painful and cause permanent scarring. However, with the right treatment, even the most severe acne can be reduced.
What You Should Know About Acne Treatment
There are several effective acne treatment methods to improve the skin’s appearance and prevent future breakouts. These treatments reduce oil production and increase the speed of skin-cell turnover to prevent new blemishes from developing. They also reduce inflammation.
Topical creams are often the first form of treatment used to treat acne, and moderate cases of acne can often be treated with prescription oral antibiotics, which reduce bacteria and inflammation. They are often combined with topical treatments. If topical treatments and oral medications don’t work for you, we provide more in-depth acne treatments. This includes procedures for acne scarring.
Our treatments include BBL® acne therapy, Morpheus8™, chemical peels, DermaSweep™, the DermaSweep Peel, and the vampire facial. Multiple sessions and combination therapy are often key to getting rid of acne or acne scarring.
Many patients experience effective results from these treatments and are able to enjoy smoother, healthier skin and reduction of acne scars. Depending on your specific case, it may take up to eight weeks before results from your acne treatment are apparent. It’s also good to be aware that your acne may get worse before it gets better.
