Selecting Acne Treatment
Acne treatments can be used both to diminish 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 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 build up, 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.
