Acne & Acne scarring
Acne is a common skin condition that affects many patients, most often between the ages of 15-24. Being a common condition doesn’t make it any less traumatic or stressful for our patients. Whiteheads, blackheads, pimples and nodules on the face and body are the most common signs of acne and can be a source of embarrassment or lack of self-esteem. While efforts to manage acne can be made without medical advice, sometimes the condition needs more extensive treatment before results can be seen.
Acne is caused by bacteria that blocks the pores of the skin. Sometimes internal factors like hormones levels can be a source for acne as well. The formation of deep nodules and pimples on the skin can lead to inflammation, acne blemishes and acne scars. Our office offers compassionate and effective medical advice for treating these conditions. With advanced skin technologies we can target the building blocks of the skin to regenerate and promote healthy skin turn over. As a result, acne is reduced, and scarring is faded or eliminated.
