Acne Treatments

Our skin influences our sense of wellbeing, and many teens and adults know that acne can be a huge distraction and source of self-consciousness. Acne scar and active acne treatments in Tucson for Green Valley, Sierra Vista, and Saddlebrooke, AZ, men and women can diminish the appearance of blemishes and scars to improve your complexion and enhance your skin.

Selecting Acne Treatment

Acne treatments can be used to diminish both active acne and acne scarring for smoother, healthier skin.

  • With topical and oral medications, a variety of options can be prescribed that work very well for many of our patients interested in acne treatment.
  • Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a very popular option for acne treatment at our Tucson practice that uses a combination of a topical treatment and light therapy to target hard-to-treat acne. This treatment may be combined with medications for some patients.
  • For extractions, our aestheticians can help you stay ahead of acne by clearing clogged pores, blackheads, pimples, and comedones.
  • With microdermabrasion and chemical peels, our aestheticians can limit oil buildup, speed up the exfoliation process, and remove damaged skin cells. This procedure may be performed alone or to enhance the results of other acne treatments.
