Acne & Acne Scarring

Understanding and Treating Acne

We know your skin is often one of the first things others notice about you. We also know that having acne whether you’re a pre-teen, teen or adult can affect anyone’s self-confidence. The truth is, acne is caused by secreted oil mixing with dead skin cells on the body that then clog pores and trap bacteria inside. Then as bacteria grows under the skin, unable to be naturally expelled through the follicle, the area swells and one or more of several different types of skin blemishes appear – from whiteheads, blackheads, small pink bumps (papules) to pustules, nodules (deep skin pimples) and cysts.

Treating Acne

We understand that it can be very disappointing when you try different advertised products and see little to no difference, or your blemishes start to clear up only to return. We also understand that everyone’s skin is unique and that your acne may range from mild to severe. That’s why our team will build your acne treatment plan around a comprehensive evaluation of your skin, as well as your health history. And, then with that in mind, we offer a variety of safe and proven treatments for treating your acne.

Treating Acne Scarring

Serious cases of acne can leave the skin rough, pitted and even scarred. Sure, some cosmetic products can help reduce the appearance of acne scars but it’s important to remember that the wrong products can actually make the condition worse and even lead to new breakouts. That’s why we’re here to offer you proven options, and customized combinations of these options, for reducing scarring and improving your overall skin quality, tone and appearance, all based on the severity and depth of your scarring.
